MARK YOUR CALENDARS:
We will be holding auditions for Staples Players Spring production of Ages and Stages, an original revue comprised of song and scenes (mostly songs) about childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, love and marriage.
Auditions will be on March 23 and 24 after school. We prefer that everyone prepare 32 measures of a song that they can ACT but if you know that you do not want to sing at all in the production you may do a monologue instead. Short, small callbacks will follow in the next couple of weeks but much of the casting will be done at the initial audition. We need singers, dancers and actors.
Some of the shows we are considering pulling songs from are: Spring’s Awakening, Hairspray, 13, A Chorus Line, Fiddler on the Roof, You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown, Company, Avenue Q and Mr. Miller is going to form a barbershop quartet which will perform!
On Friday evening, March 25, members of Staples Players have an opportunity to attend a field trip to see:
Oscar® and Emmy Award® winner Robin Williams makes his Broadway debut in the New York premiere of BENGAL TIGER AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO.
In Rajiv Joseph’s savagely funny and deeply affecting play, a tiger haunts the streets of present day Baghdad seeking the meaning of life. As he witnesses the puzzling absurdities of war, the tiger encounters Americans and Iraqis who are searching for friendship, redemption and a toilet seat made of gold.
The New York Times says, “This boldly imagined, harrowing and surprisingly funny drama is wonderfully daring.” A finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, this groundbreaking play comes to Broadway for a strictly limited, sixteen-week engagement directed by Tony Award® nominee Moisés Kaufman (creator of The Laramie Project).
We have 24 seats which will go to seniors who have been involved extensively in at least one Players show this year, any seats still available will go to Juniors, then Sophomores, etc. We will be taking the train into the city and will be eating there as well.
