A Romantic Comedy Drama. It centers around two political consultants (fresh out of college) who initially meet each other in a Savannah, Georgia hotel bar on Leap Year of 1992 (Saturday). Every Leap Year (February 29) always falls around the same time of Presidential Election Primaries. In this case, Mason Brandon & S.J. Henshaw are in the state of Georgia for the March 3, 1992 Democratic primary. Mason is a campaign consultant for candidate Jerry Brown. S.J. is a campaign consultant for rival candidate Bill Clinton. Despite being on two different campaigns, the two become romantically involved with each other that weekend. This despite one of them being engaged to be married. When the rendezvous is nearly over, Mason (almost as a joke) suggests that they should re-unite exactly four years later on Leap Year of 1996. S.J. takes him up on his offer. This is a catalyst for reunions for the two of them on Leap Year of the following years 1996 (Thursday), 2000 (Tuesday), 2004 (Sunday), 2008 (Friday) and 2012 (Wednesday). *If you notice on the six different days, one day is missing. Hence the title. Marriages, break ups, divorces, children, future rival campaign candidates (including different political parties), different cities never get in the way of them re-uniting every four years for twenty years.

Show Dates:  September 24-26

Auditions Announced for SEUSSICAL JR. at Acting Up

ACTUP-logoActing Up, young performers community theater, is holding open auditions for our fall musical, SEUSSICAL JR., Aug. 9 and 10. Participants must be ages 6-18 years old and still in high school. To secure an opportunity to audition, you must sign up for a date/time via SignUpGenius.

Show Info: Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

What to prepare and bring:
Song: Be prepared to perform 32 measures (no longer than 1 minute) of any song that highlights your voice. This should be a Broadway-type song. You should sing with karaoke-type music (no vocals) downloaded on your phone, iPod, or CD. There will not be an accompanist. (Please note, no WiFi is available in our building and cell service is spotty, so please have any music pre-downloaded.)

Please make sure that ALL of your CONFLICTS are listed in the database and printed with your form.  ALL conflicts must be reported at auditions.

Auditions Announced for CURTAINS at Loveland Stage Company

LSC_logoLoveland Stage Company announces auditions for CURTAINS

Auditions July 30-Aug 1

Audition appointments here .

Video auditions considered email lsccurtains@gmail.com

Rehearsals begin early August Tentative schedule T-W-Th 7-9:30pm, Sun 2-5pm

Show dates Fri, Sat, Sundays Nov 5-21

Directed by Charlie Rader
Produced by Tom Cavano

The Story of “Curtains” – Curtains is a backstage musical with a “play-within-the play”. Set in the 1950’s it tells the story of a troupe of actors, the cast of “Robbin’ Hood,” an ill-conceived musical in its Boston pre-Broadway tryout. On opening night, its supremely untalented leading lady is murdered on stage, the first of several murders. The cast is quarantined in the theatre, and the police investigation is led by Lt. Frank Cioffi, a community theatre aficionado in his off-time, who proves himself as interested in fixing the troubled musical as solving the murders. Of course, he accomplishes both tasks! The score for Curtains runs the gamut from witty patter songs, to rich ballads and lots of exciting, full ensemble numbers. Because Curtains may not be well-known to some of you, a complete story synopsis can be found at: http://www.theatricalrights.com/curtains.

Please prepare and provide the following for your audition:

  • 16-32 bars of music that showcases your vocal range.
