POSTPONED/DATES TBA – Summer Youth Play Auditions

May 15-16 – “9 to 5” Auditions


“The Entire American Revolution (in 40 minutes)”
by Eddie McPherson


directed by Michele Knott, with Caitlin Lewellyn and Ricky Schaefer

Auditions: TBA
Performance Dates: TBA June

History has never been so fun…  or so fast!  Flying through the major points of America’s quest for independence, this fast-and-loose comedy plays like a highlight reel of history in hilarious fashion! 

Sorry, Hamilton’s busy in a different play, but the audience will both laugh and learn as they watch patriots such as George Washington, Paul Revere, Samuel and John Adams, Patrick Henry, and Benjamin Franklin battle the vain King George III and his British soldiers. 

From the Boston Tea Party to the Battle of Bunker Hill (Did you know it was really Breed Hill?!)  to the crossing of the Delaware and onward to the British surrender at Yorktown, the historical meets the hysterical in this one act delight!


“WCKY”
by Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus


directed by Cheri Semelroth and Katie Haage

Auditions: TBA
Performance Dates: TBA June

Murder and mayhem collide in hilarious fashion as new radio station WCKY is preparing to air its first show in 1939.

As the Clementine Sisters are about to sing the opening jingle, the action behind the scenes is infused with both excitement and drama.  Head writer Roy plans to propose on air to assistant director Polly.  One of the radio actresses, Sarah, has helped him procure a ring, and of course, Polly walks in just as Roy is down on one knee practicing his proposal with Sarah.  When Sarah ends up dead a few minutes later as she’s about to make her own shocking and unscripted announcement on the air, all signs point to poor Roy.

By the time the night is over, two other on-air talents have also been murdered, and each time, Roy is the prime suspect.  It’s up to our creative writer to solve the mystery himself and reveal the actual killer through a live radio broadcast!


 
July – “9 to 5” the Musical

Rated PG-13
directed by Jeff Driscoll

 

 

Auditions: May 15-16
Performance Dates: TBA July

9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s. this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.

Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can’t she?
