We are excited to announce our productions for this year! This fall, we are doing a play that has been on the top 10 list of most popular plays for 70 years! You Can’t Take It With You, by Kaufman and Hart is a hilarious comedy featuring the quirky Sycamore family as their daughter meets and falls in love with the boss’ son. Craziness ensues with the uptight socialite parents of Tony meet Alice’s “do whatever makes you happy” family a night too early for their planned dinner party, ending in wrestling moves, fireworks explosions and being arrested by G-Men! Auditions and tech interviews will be September 13 and 14 after school in the PAC. Tickets for this classic comedy will go on sale in October for our November 3 opening!
Another classic is happening for our spring musical in May. Set in the early days of settlement in the Midwest, Oklahoma! features great music and story line. Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration, it remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA! Auditions will be in February with tickets available in March for our production the 2nd and 3rd weekends in May.
Auditions for the fall play are September 13 at 3 p.m. in the PAC!
Tech Interviews are September 14 in the PAC!
