ABOUT THE SHOW
The plot of "Eyes" is loaded with mistaken identities and farcical fun. Stanley Nichols writes successful children's stories under the pen name of Grandma Letty. He is voted "Grandmother of the Year" and his house is besieged by reporters and photographers. Afraid that exposure as a juvenile writer will jeopardize the chances of his serious new novel, Stanley has to produce a Grandma. After all else fails, he impersonates the lady.

PAC Rat Meeting [02 Sep 2005|02:08pm]

The PAC Rat meeting is tonight. I know, I know, I should really give people some warning. But Ellie did send out an e-mail. Anyhoo, it's at 7 in the PAC lobby. Come one, come all. The YaYa's will be in full force! (As always)

Jack and The Beanstalk [29 Aug 2005|10:04pm]

theinnergeek
The show was a success! Thank you everyone for your hard work, and great times!

Now, comes the business end of this entry.

We are striking the set, for those of you not "hip to the vocab" that means we are meticulously taking the set apart, so it can be put back together for January.

Here's the point.

You thought we needed help for building the set? We really need help striking the set. For as few people that show up to build it, maybe half show up for striking the set.

So, let's all pull together, peeps. It doesn't matter if you're handy, there's simple things that can be done! I will be there for the bulk of it, I can find something for anyone to do!

This is my kind request, next time I won't be so nice.

See you guys at auditions tomorrow!!!!!

btw, everyone should come up there and cheer Dave, he's going to audition! (Finally, I've only been bugging him for a year)

Auditions for "More Than Meets the Eye" [29 Aug 2005|06:52pm]

andikline
Sorry, so should have done this sooner.

Auditions will be held for the comedy "More Than Meets the Eye" on Tuesday, August 30th and Wednesday August 31st at 7 pm in the PAC. Come one, come all, you all know the drill.

The show is about an author who writes children's books under the name Grandma Letty because he doesn't want anyone to know he is writing them, for fear he will be labeled. When Grandma Letty wins "Grandmother of the Year", his publisher, a Life magazine reporter and her photographer show up at his home. That's when he dresses up in Grandma Drag.

There are roles for 3 Men and 5 Women.

See you there.

Gardens are being deflowered all over the theatre. And I'm not talking about roses, people. I'm talking about people, people.

At least that's what I heard.

Yay Jack and the Beanstalk! I am going to post pictures as soon as I get around to it, which should be sometime after auditions for More Than Meets The Eye.

Who's tired? Who's exhausted? Who's bruised? Who can't wait to do it again next Saturday?!?!?

Come help with the "Jack" set [07 Aug 2005|11:56pm]

andikline
[ mood | hopeful ]

In order to get "Jack" off (haha, took me 2 full minutes to think of that)and running, we will continue to work on the set. Wendy has spent 22 hours at the theatre in the last few days. So come lend a hand. It's a good time and for a good cause, your theatre! Enough guilt yet? How about this, even Seneca helps, by painting the benches with her "Magic Paint" (water). So if she is helping, why not you. Even an hour can do nothing but good. So come by. Occasionally, we have treats, too. I know, "No one will come unless there's punch and pie".

Preview Review: Jack and the Beanstalk
(yes, this is a shameless plug)
By: Lady LaFay and Duchess Sweetbriar

We recently had a look-in at a Jack and the Beanstalk rehearsal and would like to share with you our entertaining experiences. The first thing that caught our attention – aside from the size of the giant – was the set. A visually mesmerizing world is created on the stage and you find yourself caught up in the magic. By the way, did we mention the giant is, well, gi-normous? Add to the fantastic set the vibrant costumes and spectacular props, and you will be sucked in before the cast even utters a word.
Bringing the story to life is Mike “Wolfie” Novakovich as Jack, the naive, kind-hearted dreamer, his melodramatic mother, played by Andrea Klinefelter, Jim “9 Miles” Walters as the shifty salesman Harold H. Fairdeal, Laura “Huh?” Tiemens tackles the role of Clarabelle the Cow, marking her first endeavor portraying a mammal on stage, which she moo-nages like a pro. The “cast in the sky” includes Crystal Johnson as Eggberta, the sassy golden egg laying goose, Andrew Malone as Brumehilde the Magic Harp who gives Pavaratti a run for his money, and the lovely couple Chuck “Tall Drink of Water” Lewis and Ashley Corbett as Tyrone the giant, and his wife, Tilly. As you will see when these two share the stage, opposites do truly attract.
Don’t be fooled by the genre. Although Jack and the Beanstalk is a childrens’ show, there is humor for young and old. Our attempts at quietly observing the rehearsal failed miserably as we watched Harold drag Clarabelle off the stage. We were unable to stop laughing until the director Ellie “The Instigator” Shunko called for the end of rehearsal. Making her first run as Stage Manager is Rochelle “The Artist Formerly Known As Prop Mistress” Walters, and kudos to her on a job most well done!
A warning to asthmatics, this show is funny, you will need your inhalers, we sure did. So, bring your kids, bring your friends, bring your neighbors, bring your mother-in-law (she could use a good laugh) and come and see Jack and the Beanstalk. And remember, no food or drink in the nice new theatre (it will come out of your nose).

YOUR GOAL IN SHOW BUSINESS: Wait a minute, nobody told me anything about goals.

HAVE YOU BEEN TO LA: see above

SCARIEST PART OF AN AUDITION: There isn't one. Auditions aren't scary at all.
BEST PART OF AN AUDITION: wow, this is going to sound so arrogant, but I don't mean it like that. Walking into the theatre and having people whisper like they know that you're going to get cast no matter what.

NAME A SHOW YOU WOULD NEVER DO AGAIN: Well, there isn't one, but there are certain people I would never act with or for again.

WHAT'S SOMETHING EMBARRASSING OR UNEXPECTED THAT HAPPENED TO YOU WHILE ON STAGE: Two things, both during H and G. Barry as the dad was posing as a tree on stage right, and I have this huge ice cream cone lookin' wig on, and he's supposed to tap me on the head with a tree branch. The branch got caught on my wig and pulled the thing almost completely off, so I spent the time in the oven trying to fix it, with no light. Second, all I have to say is my little girl knows her lines "It's a pop-lar tree!"

WHO IS THE MOST DIFFICULT PERSON (ON STAGE OR OFF) THAT YOU HAVE EVER WORKED WITH: ha ha ha, that's a straight up tie, Jack and Isaiah.

EVER BEEN NAKED ON STAGE?: Not physically, but emotionally, yes.
WHO OR WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST INSPIRATION OR INFLUENCE? Bobbie, if I could shave off just a tad of her talent, and keep it for my own I would be happy. I take everything she has to say to heart.
