Chino Community Children’s Theatre is proud to present Jack and the Giant.

Book adapted by Vera Morris
Music and Lyrics by Bill Francoeur
Directed by Gracie Arvizu and Patty Quiroz

This charming musical will have adults and children alike humming. The giant is making life pretty miserable for Jack, his mother, and the entire kingdom. Jack is even forced to sell his beloved dancing cow for magic beans. Jack goes up the beanstalk and into the castle where he not only fights Gogmagog, the giant, but also the malicious Troll. By the end of this special tale, the cow is returned, the chicken learns how to lay golden eggs and the good life returns to the kingdom.

Based on the Oscar-nominated smash hit 1974 film by Gene Wilder and Mel Brooks, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is the wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic. When Frederick Frankenstein, an esteemed New York brain surgeon and professor, inherits a castle and laboratory in Transylvania from his grandfather, deranged genius Victor Von Frankenstein, he faces a dilemma. Does he continue to run from his family’s tortured past or does he stay in Transylvania to carry on his grandfather’s mad experiments reanimating the dead?

Unfolding in the forbidding Castle Frankenstein and the foggy moors of Transylvania Heights, the show’s raucous score includes “The Transylvania Mania”, “He Vas My Boyfriend”, and an unforgettable treatment of Irving Berlin’s “Puttin’ On the Ritz.”

Worldwide Theatricals presents The Grapes of Wrath

October 14, 2017
2:00 pm
8:00 pm

Worldwide Theatricals is proud to present as part of their classic literature series-John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath.

Two Shows Only-October 14th-2pm and 8pm

Renowned first as a novel, and then as a prize-winning motion picture, the story of the Joad family and their flight from the dust bowl of Oklahoma is familiar to all. Desperately proud, but reduced to poverty by the loss of their farm, the Joads pile their few possessions on a battered old truck and head west for California, hoping to find work and a better life. Led by the indomitable Ma Joad, who is determined to keep the family together at any cost, and by the volatile young Tom Joad, an ex-convict who grows increasingly impatient with the intolerance and exploitation that they encounter on their trek, the Joads must deal with death and terrible deprivation before reaching their destination—where their waning hopes are dealt a final blow by the stark realities of the Great Depression. And yet, despite the anguish and suffering that it depicts, the play becomes in the final essence a soaring and deeply moving affirmation of the indomitability of the human spirit and of the essential goodness and strength that—then as now—reside in the hearts and minds of the “common man,” throughout the world.

Winner of the 1990 Tony Award and Outer Critics Circle Award. A powerful and deeply affecting stage version of one of the masterpieces of American literature.

Producer-Jesse Dinkel/Worldwide Theatricals
Director-Carol Damgen
Choreographer-Dimyana Pelev

Play With Your Food Productions is a popular dinner theater attraction located in Hemet, CA. Join us in October for a ghostly comedy production of Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward. The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” one Madame Arcati. As the (worldly and un-) personalities clash, Charles’ current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed, “passes over,” joins Elvira, and the two “blithe spirits” haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.

Call (951) 663-8491 for reservations

Tickets are $40 each and include a three-course dinner. Menu selections include Salmon with a Chipotle Rub, Baked Lemon Pepper Chicken, and Roast Beef with a Bordelaise Sauce. We are also happy to provide vegetarian and vegan options upon request.

Chino Community Theatre seeking men and boys for A Christmas Story: The Musical

Chino Community Theatre is seeking actors who can sing for A Christmas Story: The Musical. Director is willing to work with rehearsal conflicts, as long as there are no performance conflicts. See our website for performance dates: www.chinocommunitytheatre.org.

We are currently looking to cast the following roles:

Jean Shepherd/Narrator: Male. Late 40s to early 60s. Non-singing.
A charismatic storyteller who has the ability to weave a spell and draw an audience into his magical world. He is omniscient but not overpowering; a good-natured curmudgeon with a deadpan sense of humor. He holds the audience with his tremendous presence and spark.

The Old Man: Male. 30s to 40s. High baritone to G4.
A guy with a good heart, though it is buried beneath a sometimes gruff (and rough) exterior. He’s a devoted husband and father who loves his family but doesn’t overtly show it. He usually expects the worst but is capable of excitement if the situation warrants (though it usually doesn’t). In his moments of fantasy, he is transformed from his usual grumbling blue-collar self to a true song and dance man.
