RED SPEEDO 
Falcon Theatre

Directed by Tara Williams

Cast: Anna Hazard, Jared Earland, Nik Pajic & Rory Sheridan

Ray has swum his way to the eve of the Olympic trials. If he makes the team, he’ll land a marketing deal with Speedo…a deal that means he’ll never need a real job. So when someone’s stash of performance-enhancing drugs is found in the locker room fridge, threatening the entire team’s Olympic fate, Ray has to quash a maelstrom of rumors…or risk losing everything. Red Speedo is a sharp and stylish play about swimming, survival of the fittest, and the American dream of a level playing field—or of leveling the field yourself.

PREPARE 16 BARS OF SONG FROM A MUSICAL. BRING SHEET MUSIC. AN ACCOMPANIST WILL BE PROVIDED. HEADSHOT/RESUME PREFERRED.

Welcome to the Renaissance and the outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce, Something Rotten! Set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as “The Bard.” When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, and all that jazz.

Performance dates: April 8-10

PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE Runs Jan. 28-Feb. 5

BCT_Picasso at the Lapin logoPICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE
Beavercreek Community Theatre
Jan. 28-Feb. 5
[Beavercreek]

Directed by Chris Harmon
Produced by Jenny Wheeker

Cast: Jeremy Gingrich as Freddy, Chuck Larkowski as Gaston, Sasha Kozlova as Germaine, Eli Young as Albert Einstein, Casandra Steimle as Suzanne/Countess/Female Admirer, Richard Young as Sagot, Jose Gutierrez Del Arroyo as Pablo Picasso, CJ Suchyta as Charles Dabernow Schmendiman & Michael Ferrarelli as A Visitor

This long-running Off-Broadway absurdist comedy places Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in a Parisian café in 1904, just before the renowned scientist transformed physics with his theory of relativity and the celebrated painter set the art world afire with cubism. In his first comedy for the stage, Steve Martin plays fast and loose with fact, fame, and fortune as these two geniuses muse on the century’s achievements and prospects, as well as other fanciful topics, with infectious dizziness.
