A comedy-drama telling the story of a group of American airmen held in a German prison camp during World War II.  The prisoners have organized to combat isolation, low morale and boredom.  The camaraderie and easy bantering between the men fill the play with comic relief, but there is also the serious side about the effects of war and imprisonment.  Auditions scheduled for Feb. 4 and 5, 2019.

9 TO 5
Directed by James Boone
May 29-June 2, 2019

9 to 5, The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie.  Set in the late 1970s this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.  Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss.  In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot!  While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down.  Hey a girl can scheme can’t she?  This high-energy show is ideal for a large, mostly female cast, but also has opportunities for talented male dancers.  With its jubilant score and easily reliable characters, 9 to 5 is the perfect show for community theatres.  Auditions  scheduled for April 1 & 2.
