About the Play:
Tony-award winner for Best Musical, Spamalot is the uproarious comedy “lovingly ripped off from” Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Off-the-wall humor fills King Arthur and his companions’ quest for the Holy Grail. Their journey is side-splittingly interrupted by the Knights who say Ni, Harold the Shrubber, The Black Knight and countless other iconic characters. Whether you are a die-hard Monty Python fan or as you read this, you wonder, “What is a ‘Monty Python?’” you will no doubt love the hilarity of Spamalot. — Project Type: Live Event

Into The Woods – Auditions – 1457951
10-29-14 – Minneapolis, MN>Rapid City, SD – Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by James Lapine
Originally directed on Broadway by James Lapine, Orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick

Directed by Resident Director Matt McNabb
Music Direction by Louis Berg-Arnold
Choreography by Penny Freeh

From Director
Into The Woods is one of the most beloved and ingenious musicals ever written. At its core, Sondheim and Lapine’s epic take on fairy tales is a cautionary story of raising children in a dangerous world. I’m looking for an ensemble of strong singer/actors to take a naturalistic and earnest approach to the show. We’ll still have magic and quick wit, but I am looking to highlight the serious tragedy and thoughtful nature of the show.

General Meeting – Arsenic And Old Lace – 1456961
10-23-14 – Minneapolis, MN>Rapid City, SD – The General Information Meeting Theater:

This year’s production is Joseph Kesselring’s screwball comedy

“Arsenic and Old Lace”
Directed By: Nancy Dingwall.

Synopsis:
Set in the 1940’s, Arsenic tells the story of a newspaper drama critic Mortimer Brewster. Poor Mortimer. He’s just a normal, run-of-the-mill guy who is anxious to marry his fiancé (the girl-next-door and a minister’s daughter) Elaine. Standing solidly between Mortimer and matrimonial bliss is the wackiest, weirdest family tree that ever grew. His two sweet aunts, Abby and Martha have developed murder as their favorite hobby. Out of a twisted sense of sympathy, they regularly poison lonely old men with a mixture of arsenic and elderberry wine and then bury them in the cellar. Mortimer’s brother Teddy sports a pince-nez, a handlebar moustache and regularly charges up San Juan Hill. Mortimer’s other, horrid brother Jonathan has just arrived from an asylum with a new face (a la Boris Karloff) and a sinister side-kick named Dr. Einstein. It’s “Home Sweet Home-icide” as Mortimer tries to thwart the police, conceal a corpse, curtail anymore killing, and convince Elaine that a wedding with a man who is drowning in such a murky gene pool would lead to nothing but woe. Arsenic and Old Lace is truly a classic melodrama, guaranteed to thrill and entertain.

Everyone loves the Hollywood farce with Cary Grant.

We’re looking for actors as well as crew to help out behind the scenes.

Everyone is welcome.

Join the family.

The more the merrier.

At the meeting we will discuss the cast, crew, rehearsal schedule, and answer any questions you have.
