CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS 2019
This classic Oscar Wilde play, subtitled “A Trivial Comedy for Serious People” is directed by Cheryl Fesmire. The play is a comedy farce in which the leading characters maintain false identities to escape burdensome social obligations. Set in Victorian London, the play works as a very popular satire of “Victorian Ways”. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make it Wilde’s most enduringly popular play.
Francis, Jinx, Smudge, & Sparky return to earth. The cast, and Director Kirby Gilliam, reprise the roles they portrayed in “FOREVER PLAID” at The Commons Theatre in Alexandria, two years ago. This time the boys return for another posthumous performance after a call from the heavenly Rosemary Clooney, who requests a little harmony into a very discordant world this Christmas.
What do Arles Struvie, Thurston Wheelis, Aunt Pearl, Petey Fisk, Phineas Blye, and Rev. Spikes have in common? In this hilarious send-up of small-town morals and mores, they are all among the upstanding citizens of Tuna, Texas’ third-smallest town. The long-running Off Broadway hit features two actors creating the entire population of Tuna in a tour de farce of quick change artistry, directed by Tiffany Jackson.
This Pulitzer Prize-winning play, directed by Sharon Zimmer, takes place on Labor day Weekend in the joint backyards of two middle-aged widows. Flo Owens lives in one house with her two maturing daughters, Madge and Millie, and a boarder. Helen Potts lives with her elderly and invalid mother. Into this female atmosphere comes a young man, whose animal vitality seriously upsets the entire group.
Set in Padua, and directed by Kay Winter, this is the story of Lucentio pursuing the fair Bianca. He is soon told by her father that her bad-tempered older sister, Katherine, must marry first. And so, with the help of friends, Lucentio encourages Petruchio, who has come to Padua to find a wealthy wife, to court Katherine and free Bianca to marry. Hilarious chaos ensues.
