Auditions: Jan 9 & 10, callbacks Jan 12
Performances: March 10, 11, 17 & 18 @ 7:30 p.m.; March 12 @ 3 p.m

The Fantasticks is a 1960 musical with music by Harvey Schmidt and lyrics by Tom Jones. It tells an allegorical story, loosely based on the play The Romancers by Edmond Rostand, concerning two neighboring fathers who trick their children, Luisa and Matt, into falling in love by pretending to feud. The fathers hire traveling actors to stage a mock abduction, so that Matt can heroically seem to save Luisa, ending the supposed feud. When the children discover the deception, they reject the arranged love match and separate. Each then gains disillusioning experiences of the real world, seen in parallel fantasy sequences. They return to each other bruised but enlightened, and they renew their vows with more maturity.
Directed by Jon Jones


Death of salesman kings mountDeath of a Salesman

Auditions: July 24 @ 3-5 PM. – July 25 & 26 @ 7-9 PM
Performances: Sept 31 and Oct 1, 8 & 9 @ 7:30 PM; Oct 2 @ 3:00 PM;

Ever since it was first performed in 1949, Death of a Salesman has been recognized as a milestone of the American theater. In the person of Willy Loman, the aging, failing salesman who makes his living riding on a smile and a shoeshine, Arthur Miller redefined the tragic hero as a man whose dreams are at once insupportably vast and dangerously insubstantial. He has given us a figure whose name has become a symbol for a kind of majestic grandiosity-and a play that compresses epic extremes of humor and anguish, promise and loss, between the four walls of an American living room.
Directed by Stan Logan
