Catch A Star Theatrical (CAST) Players is proud to present Sylvia, by A.R Gurney, directed by Annette Tringham, and starring Randy Peters, Jacqueline Noone, Brandice Mello and Quentin Marley. The run opens with a special $30 dinner theater production on Friday, May 1. Additional performances are on Saturdays, May 2, 9, and 16, at 7:30 p.m. and on Sundays, May 3, 10 and 17 at 3:00 p.m.. Admission for these shows is only $12 per person.

Sylvia is the story of a man and his dog….and his wife. Greg and Kate are city-dwellers who are adjusting to their “empty nest”. Kate’s career as an academic is taking off, while Greg is being transferred to ever more unsatisfying work. In a walk in the park, Greg finds an adorable pooch named Sylvia (who is played by a human). Sylvia becomes a bone of contention (pun intended), testing their marriage to hilarious and touching effect. It is a hilarious commentary on mid-life angst, and the role pets play in our lives.

Opening night, Friday, May 1, will be a special event. Doors open at 6:00 p.m, dinner at 6:30 and curtain at 7:30 for this one gala performance.

Age appropriateness for this production is 13 years and older because of language.

Reservations, as always, are recommended, and may be made on our website at www.castplayers.org or by calling 951-315-4253.

Performances are at the Beaumont Womens Community Center, 306 E. Sixth St. At the corner of Sixth and Euclid in Beaumont.

Auditions: The Last Days of Judas Iscariot at The Gestalt Theatre Project

April 13, 2015
6:30 pm

The Gestalt Theatre Project is holding auditions for The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, the play by Stephen Adly Guirgis, on Monday, April 13, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. in The Box at the Fox Entertainment Plaza in downtown Riverside.

All roles are open, with the exception of Henrietta Iscariot.

The play is an allegorical look at the sort of guilt that can trap us in prisons of our own making. It is about forgiveness. Or rather, our lack of ability to forgive ourselves. The setting is Hope, which manifests itself as a courtroom located in downtown Purgatory. Judas is on trial. The centuries-old betrayal of his best friend is being re-examined. A burned-out judge who hanged himself during the civil war presides over an agnostic defense attorney and a lascivious prosecutor as they battle for the freedom of a catatonic Judas. A Judas who has long ago abandoned the hope that he feels he does not deserve. An increasingly bizarre list of witnesses help take The Last Days of Judas Iscariot from hilarious to surprisingly moving and poignant.
