2016-2017 Season

NOISES OFF

Auditions for Noises Off: Sunday, February 19 at 7pm, Monday, February 20 at 7pm.

Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop calledNothing’s On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play. “The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, well-known romp is festival of delirium.” – The New York Times

Written by Michael Frayn
Directed by Thurmond Whatley

Show Dates: April 21, 22, 28, 29, May 5, 6 at 7:30pm • May 30 at 3pm

THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD

Auditions for The Mystery of Edwin Drood: Sunday, February 26 at 3pm, Monday, February 27 at 7pm.

This wildly warm-hearted interactive theatrical experience kicks off when the Music Hall Royale (a hilariously loony Victorian musical troupe) “puts on” its flamboyant rendition of an unfinished Dickens mystery in The Mystery of Edwin Drood. The story itself deals with John Jasper, a Jekyll-and-Hyde choirmaster who is quite madly in love with his music student, the fair Miss Rosa Bud. Now, Miss Bud is, in turn, engaged to Jasper’s nephew, young Edwin Drood. Our title character disappears mysteriously one stormy Christmas Eve-but has Edwin Drood been murdered? And if so, then whodunnit?

Music, Lyric, and Book by Rupert Holmes

BAREFOOT IN THE PARK

Auditions for Barefoot in the Park: May 7 and May 8

Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. After a six day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does.

Written by Neil Simon

OUTSIDE MULLINGAR

Auditions for Outside Mullingar: Sunday, June 11, and Monday, June 12

Anthony and Rosemary are two introverted misfits straddling 40. Anthony has spent his entire life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland, a state of affairs that—due to his painful shyness—suits him well. Rosemary lives right next door, determined to have him, watching the years slip away. With Anthony’s father threatening to disinherit him and a land feud simmering between their families, Rosemary has every reason to fear romantic catastrophe. But then, in this very Irish story with a surprising depth of poetic passion, these yearning, eccentric souls fight their way towards solid ground and some kind of happiness.

Written by John Patrick Shanley
Directed by Haley Hughes
