*Dec. 1 - 23, 2017 - Pippin, by Roger O. Hirson and Stephen Schwartz (Auditions Aug 28 - 30, 2017). Directed by Kay Roth

Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.

Jan 12 - 27, 2018 - The Three Musketeers,  by Charles Morey and Alexandre Dumas (Auditions Oct. 23 - 25, 2017). Directed by Josh Anderson

Adapted from Alexandre Dumas' timeless tale, this witty and action packed swash-buckler inserts the author himself into the plot, writing and re-writing his way through the adventures of D'Artagnan and his band of Musketeers as they fight the rule of a dishonest Cardinal and protect the ones they love. Double crossings, kidnappings, and carefully guarded secrets keep the Musketeers and the writer in constant battle against their enemies, from looming deadlines to deadly assassins. Featuring lavish sword fights and sweeping romance, this adaptation of the classic novel evokes a time where honor and love ruled all. 

Feb. 16 - Mar. 3, 2018 - Sylvia, by A.R. Gurney (Auditions Dec. 4 - 6. 2017) Directed by Loren Dunn

Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg's career as a financial trader is winding down, while Kate's career, as a public-school English teacher, is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name "Sylvia" on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn't understand the relationship between man and dog. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.

Mar. 23 - Apr. 7, 2018 - Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen (Auditions Jan. 15 - 17, 2018) Directed by Karlissa Cornwell

 Mrs. Bennett is determined to get her daughters married. Jane, Elizabeth, and Lydia are likely-looking girls in a period when a woman's one possible career is matrimony. To be a wife was success. Anything else was failure. Jane and her Mr. Bingley and Lydia with her Mr. Wickham are quite content with things as they are, but not Elizabeth! She actually refuses to marry Mr. Collins, whom she openly deplores, and Mr. Darcy, whom she secretly adores. This play is the story of the duel between Elizabeth and her pride, and Darcy and his prejudice. Each gives in before the evening is over and pride and prejudice meet halfway.

June 15 - 30, 2018 - The Fox on the Fairway, by Ken Ludwig (Auditions Apr. 2 - 4, 2018) 

Bingham, president of the Quail Valley Country Club, is in a difficult position. Not by finding out that his newly hired hand, Justin, is in love with Louise, the waitress at the club house, but by the discovery that the golfer he thought would play for his club has switched sides recruited by his counterpart and opponent, the cocky and arrogant Dickie, and the huge bet he had foolishly wagered is now likely to be lost. Fortunately, he discovers that Justin is actually quite a good golfer and finagles his nomination. Justin does not disappoint and has a huge lead, when close to its end the tournament is interrupted by bad weather. When Justin learns that Louise has lost the engagement ring he gave her - she accidentally flushed it down the toilet - he comes unglued. The game resumes the next day, but Justin loses the lead, and, upset, takes an unfortunate swing breaking his arm. Bingham is desperate, and the appearance of his wife complicates the matter, as she catches him much too close to Pamela, his sex-starved vice-president. Can Bingham find a replacement for Justin to win the game, win the wager, and get his life in order?

July 20 - Aug. 4, 2018 - Bell, Book and Candle,  by John Van Druten  (Auditions May 7 - 9, 2018) Directed by Colleen Franzoia

Gillian Holroyd is one of the few modern people who can actually cast spells and perform feats of supernaturalism. She casts a spell over an unattached publisher, Shepherd Henderson, partly to keep him away from a rival and partly because she is attracted to him. He falls head over heels in love with her at once and wants to marry her. But witches, unfortunately, cannot fall in love, and this minute imperfection leads into a number of difficulties. Ultimately, the lady breaks off with her companions in witchery, preferring the normal and human love offered her by the attractive publisher. But before the happy conclusion of the romance, Gillian comes very near to losing him—but doesn't.
