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.

Mt. San Jacinto College presents Peter/Wendy written by Jeremy Bloom and directed by Payden Ackerman.

In this lyrical, atmospheric interpretation of Peter Pan, Jeremy Bloom strips the familiar story down to its emotional essence. Peter lures Wendy away from the nursery to the magical world of Neverland, where she joins his adventures with Tinker Bell, Tiger Lily, and the menacing Captain Hook. This inventive adaption that pays homage to the darker themes of J.M. Barrie’s original, Peter/Wendy will mesmerize audiences.

When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly bridge night out with the “girls,” what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies? If you’re Connie, Leona and Millie, three southern ladies from Birmingham, you do the most daring thing you’ve ever done. You “borrow” the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game, and the wildest, most exciting night of your lives involves a police raid, a stripper and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you’re truly living.

Rialto Community Players is proud to present their second show of their 36th season, Caught in the Net by Ray Cooney!

The sequel to Run for Your Wife finds the bigamist taxi driver John Smith still keeping his two families in different parts of London, both happy and blissfully unaware of each other. Yes that’s right, two families! Two different wives, one husband. However, his teenage children, a girl from one family and a boy from the other, have met on the Internet and are anxious to meet in person since they have so much in common. Name, surname and taxi driving dad! Keeping them apart plunges John into a hell hole of his own making. His lodger Stanley could be a savior, but he is about to go on holiday with his decrepit old father who turns up thinking he is already at the guest house. The situation spirals out of control as John juggles outrageously with the truth.

“A masterclass in the art of farce…The perfectly potty plot is a precession built laughter machine.” – What’s On

“Brilliant…The funniest play of the year.” – Daily Mail

“Utterly magical…firework display of knockabout comedy.” – Spectator

“A sheer joy from beginning to end.” – Daily Telegraph

Caught in the Net will be playing at the Sandra R. Courtney Community Playhouse located at 150 E. San Bernardino Rialto CA 92376.

Unable to sleep, Elaine Wheeler paces the living room of her Manhattan townhouse, troubled by unsettling memories and vague fears. Her husband tries to comfort her, but when he steps away for a moment Elaine screams as she sees (or believes she sees) the body of a dead man in the window across the way. The police are called, but find nothing except an empty chair. Elaine’s terror grows as shortly thereafter she sees still another body—this time a woman’s—but by now the police are skeptical and pay no heed to her frantic pleas. Her husband, claiming that Elaine may be on the verge of a breakdown, calls in a lady psychiatrist, who agrees with his suggestion that Elaine should commit herself to a sanitarium for treatment. From this point on, the plot moves quickly and grippingly as those involved—Elaine’s old friend and house guest Blanche; the inquisitive and rather sinister man who lives next door; and the nosy German maid Helga—all contribute to the deepening suspense and mystery of the play as it draws towards its riveting and chilling climax.
