Bad Auditions by Bad Actors
We will start our 2018-2019 Theatre Season with our performance of Bad Auditions by Bad Actors showing October 18-20, 2018.
Newbie director Carol has one day to find the lead actors for a community theater production of Romeo and Juliet. But what seems like a simple task proves impossible when the pool of actors include performers who just don’t know what to do with their hands or channel their rage, extreme method actors, and one woman who may or may not think she’s a cat. This hilarious comedy will bring you to the last place you’d ever want to be… behind the doors of a casting session.
We are so excited to bring Cinderella to the Lake Highlands High School stage! Our musical performance will be January 23-27, 2019.
The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. Glass slippers are so back!
For our Spring UIL One-Act-Play Competition, we will perform Medea.
Deaf to the warnings of her nurse and chorus, grief-stricken Medea seeks solace in destroying Jason, her unfaithful husband. She ruthlessly severs her husband’s lineage only to find herself “alone and forsaken” alongside the man she condemned to desolate solitude. A condensed adaptation of the classic tragedy that effectively explores Medea’s disjointed psyche within the context of ancient Greek values. The ultimate murder for revenge in the adapted Euripedes’ tragedy.
(Definitely a drama in case you hadn’t guessed!)
