By William Shakespeare

The story of two very different sets of lovers, Beatrice and Benedick and Claudio and Hero. The witty banter between Beatrice and Benedick is the highlight of the play. The main plot of Much Ado revolves around obstacles to the union of two young lovers (Claudio and Hero), the plays sub-plot, the “merry war” of the sexes between Beatrice and Benedick. Benedict thinks he hates Beatrice but really loves her and Beatrice who thinks she hates Benedick but really loves him!

Stand and Deliver

On August 6, 2014, in Uncategorized, by Administrator

245236

Based on the screenplay by Ramon Menendez and Tom Musca.

Adapted for the stage by Robert Bella.

The compelling true story of a dedicated East Los Angeles teacher who surmounts overwhelming odds in his quest to turn inner-city students into whiz kids. When Jaime Escalante leaves a career in engineering to teach high school math, he is assigned to a barrio school with a reputation for gangs, drugs and dropouts, an ill-funded school that is also in imminent danger of losing its accreditation. Still, his quirky sense of humor, antics and offbeat teaching methods mesmerize and motivate his students. A class goal is set: to take the Advanced Placement Calculus Test, an exam so demanding that less than two percent of seniors attempt it. Pressure mounts! Escalante works his students and himself so obsessively that he suffers a heart attack a couple of days before the test; nonetheless, 18 students take the test. All 18 pass! However, the skeptical Educational Testing Service invalidates the scores because of the unusual similarity of wrong answers. Ambition and pride vanish in a single computerized keystroke. Reluctantly, the students agree to retest. The result provides the dramatic conclusion to this emotion-packed, inspirational, urban fairy tale.

Alice @ Wonderland

ALICEATWON

(Youth Series)

By Jonathan Yukich

What would happen if a 21st century Alice collided with Lewis Carroll’s legendary Wonderland?  This modern retelling of the classic children’s story has all of the characters you know and love, including the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and the Queen of Hearts.  The story is laid out in traditional style, except that Alice is distinctly contemporary, complete with cell phone in hand.  Full of references to text messaging and social media, the play imagines a present-day Alice encountering the Wonderland so many of us treasure.  A sharply told, crisply paced ride, this quality adaptation has been praised for its humor, modern style and appeal to both children and adults.

Show dates are:

February 20 at 7 p.m.

Congratulations all! Thank you so much for coming out and auditioning. This was a very difficult process. The show is written for 30 or so people and we have 40+ people in the cast. I cast everyone that auditioned. My Ensemble- get ready to have some fun! I have a ton of jobs for you and I will be letting you know exactly what you will be doing in the very near future. Be ready for possible lines. I am still working on the break-down of some of the characters and lines, so I have not added the specific information you will need. I will be emailing you very soon with more details. I want to try and make this show a very Ensemble driven show. Ensemble is NOT a small role and some of you listed as parts will be in the Ensemble as well.

Again, congratulations! You all are wonderful and you ALL are going to shine. Can’t wait to get to work! Also, please never hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.

Zombeo and Juliet

On August 6, 2014, in Uncategorized, by Administrator

ZOMBEOANDJ

By Kathy Martin and Phil Nohl

Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers are having some very supernatural problems.  The Montgomery’s are a family of zombies.  Their sworn enemies, the Decapitate’s, are zombie hunters.  When Juliet’s cousin Ty kills Romeo, Romeo becomes a zombie, making the Montgomery family proud.  Soon after at the Decapitate’s costume party, Romeo and Juliet meet and fall in love, but poor Juliet Decapitate doesn’t know her love is one of her undead adversaries.  It isn’t until Romeo kills Ty and gets banned from the mall — tragically cutting off his Orange Julius supply — that Juliet learns the truth about her love.  She is faced with a difficult decision:  does she abandon her family for her true love or does she perform her family duties and send Romeo to his grave for good?
