OBCTheater presents the classic Musical Comedy The Pirates of Penzance, August 25 – 28, 2016.

​Hilarious, family friendly ​and filled with catchy tunes, The Pirates of Penzance has all the ingredients for the perfect farce: a damsel in distress, a sexy pirate king, a maneuvering Major-General, and a series of delightfully absurd mix-ups. Expecting to be released from servitude on his 21st birthday, pirate apprentice Frederic falls for the beauteous young Mabel. But due to a leap-year technicality, the poor lad soon discovers that he must be away from the love of his life and continue his apprenticeship for another 63 years. Will he ever be free? Will he win the hand of the beautiful Mabel? Find out as OBCTheater brings one of the funniest musicals of all time to the Corona Civic Center.

Featuring prominent Southern California tenor ROBERT HOYT as the Pirate King, LANCE GALGON as Frederic, JAMES ELLIS as the Major General, KELLEN FORD as the Sergeant of the Police, AMANDA KALKANIS as Mabel and MARLISA YACE as Ruth with a stellar cast of performers from throughout the Inland Empire.

Auditions: Avenue Q at San Bernardino Valley College

August 22, 2016
6:00 pm

SBVC will hold auditions for the musical Avenue Q by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez (music and lyrics) and Jeff Whitty (book). Auditions will be held in the San Bernardino Valley College Auditorium at 6 pm on August 22nd. Avenue Q will be directed by Melinda Fogle, with Musical Direction by Julie Edwards-Matanga. Performers should bring a headshot and resume if available. Those interested in technical crew positions are welcome to attend auditions. Performances will be held in December.

‘Winner of the Tony “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart. The laugh out loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life. Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere. Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children’s show; a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned.’ ~Music Theatre International

Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile. Nellie learns that the mother of his children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, refuses Emile’s proposal of marriage. Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable denies himself the fulfillment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl with whom he’s fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie.
