One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, May 25-29

playbill_OneFlew

When  Randle Patrick McMurphy (Joel Moore) gets transferred for evaluation from a prison farm to a mental institution, he assumes it will be a less restrictive environment. What he finds is Nurse Ratched (Marilyn Marshall-Miller) running HER psychiatric ward with an iron fist. She keeps her patients cowed through abhor, medication, and sessions of electroconvulsive shock therapy. The battle of wills between the rebellious and the inflexible soon affects the ward’s patients.

Performances are May 25th through May 29th. Doors open at 7pm and the show begins at 7:30pm, with a 2:30pm matinee on Sunday. To reserve tickets, contact the Box Office at (417) 623-3638, or online at joplinlittletheatre.org.

Auditions for Joplin Little Theatre’s next production, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, will be Monday and Tuesday, April 4th and 5th, from 7pm-9pm at Joplin Little Theatre. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Needed are 12 men and 4 women. Directed by Lisa Wood, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest tells the story of R. P. McMurphy; a dedicated man who, after finding himself on the wrong side of the law, pleads insane and ends up at a psychiatric hospital, run by the militant Nurse Ratched. The two personalities clash when McMurphy riles up the other psych patients, leading to a climatic struggle between order and freedom. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest runs May 25th-29th.OneFlewauditions2

“Other Desert Cities” by Jon Robin Baitz, running March 30th-April 3rd

ODC2Other Desert Cities by Jon Robin Baitz premiered on Broadway in November 2011 and was a Finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.  Greg Swartz directs an ensemble cast in this powerful, passionate show that the New York Times described as “one of the best new plays of the decade.”

Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, her brother, and her aunt. Brooke announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family’s history – a wound they don’t want reopened. In effect, she draws a line in the sand and dares them all to cross it.

Other Desert Cities debuts March 30th and runs through April 3rd. Doors will open at 7pm and the show will begin at 7:30pm, with a 2:30 matinee on Sunday. Tickets are $13 for general admission and $11 for seniors and students. To reserve tickets, contact the Box Office during operating hours at 417-623-3638, or on our tickets page!

This show contains mature subject matter and language. Viewer discretion strongly advised.
