Carrie the musical – Oct.-Nov., 2015 – Gunston Theatre 2carrieFINAL

Music by Michael Gore, Lyrics by Dean Pitchford

Book by Lawrence D. Cohen, Based on the novel by Stephen King

Directed by Matthew Randall

Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she’s an outcast who’s bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it… Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel, the musical of Carrie hasn’t been seen since its legendary 1988 Broadway production. Now, the show’s original authors have joined with director Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz) and MCC Theater for a newly reworked and fully re-imagined vision of this gripping tale. Set today, in the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, Carrie features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment, and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).

The History Boys – January, 2016 – Gunston Theatre 1

By Alan BennetthistoryboysFINAL

Directed by Haley Murphy

An unruly bunch of bright, funny sixth-form (senior) boys in a British boarding school are, as such boys will be, in pursuit of sex, sport, and a place at a good university – generally in that order. In all their efforts, they are helped and hindered, enlightened and bemused, by a maverick English teacher who seeks to broaden their horizons in sometimes undefined ways, and by a young history teacher who questions the methods, as well as the aim, of their schooling. In The History Boys, Alan Bennett raises – with gentle wit and pitch-perfect command of character – not only universal questions about the nature of history and how it is taught but also questions about the purpose of education today. Following a sold out run in London, The History Boys premiered on Broadway in April 2006 taking the Tony Award as Best Play of the Season.

Auditions-October 19-20, 2015 – Details Coming Soon!


The Boys in the Band – April, 2016 – Gunston Theatre 2

boysinthebandFINALBy Mart Crowley

Directed by Rosemary Hartman

In his upper eastside Manhattan apartment, Michael is throwing a birthday party for Harold, a self-awoved “32 year-old, pock-marked, Jew fairy”, complete with surprise gift: “Cowboy” a street hustler. As the evening wears on, fueled by drugs and alcohol, bitter, unresolved resentments among the guests come to light when a game of “Truth” goes terribly wrong. This seminal work of the Off Broadway movement premiered in 1968 and was a long-running hit onstage, later filmed with the original cast. In 2010, the play made a triumphant return to New York City in a highly praised production produced by Drama Desk and Obie Award winning Transport Group.

Auditions-January 19-20, 2016 – Details Coming Soon!


Snakebit – June, 2016 – Theatre on the Run

snakebitFINALBy David Marshall Grant

Directed by Sara Joy Lebowitz

A study of modern friendship when put to the test, the play centers on Jonathan and his wife, Jenifer, while they visit their oldest friend, Michael, at his home in Los Angeles. Jonathan, an actor, is in L.A. auditioning for a film—his first big break at stardom—and he’s dragged Jenifer with him for support. Jenifer is distant because their daughter was left at home with a relative, and she’s become ill. Michael is distracted as his boyfriend has left him, and one of the children he counsels was beaten and put in a hospital where he cannot see her. At first the focus is on the universal questions we all face at one point or another, specifically self-doubt, and our selfish need for support. With the arrival of a guest, the play becomes deeper and forces us to see how ugly we can be when we look only at ourselves when we really should remember to look at others—especially those we love.

Auditions – April 6-7, 2016 – Details Coming Soon!
