Inand Valley Repertory Theatre company (IVRT) is proud to announce the first show in its season: the musical Grease, beginning February 4th and running through February 18th, 2015.

Grease tells the story of head greaser, Danny Zuko, and new good-girl, Sandy Dumbrowski, trying to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights” while the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as “Greased Lightning,” and “You’re The One that I Want,” recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An eight-year run on Broadway and many subsequent revivals place GREASE among the world’s most popular musicals.

IVRT’s production of Grease stars IVRT newcomers Scott Arnold as Danny and Winter Bassett as Sandy. IVRT company members Bobby Collins, Amanda Minano, DawnEllen Ferry, Cindy Smith and Mark MacKenzie also star, as well as Lindsey Kay Carlson, Aaron Mckinley Lyons, Renna Nightingale, Laura Delano, Justin Budds, Colin Campbell, Greg Hardash, Kristina Leopold, Lindsey Conway, James Ellis, and Stanton Morales. Todd Vigiletti guest stars as the Teen Angel. Also featured are IVRT regulars Ann Thomas, Walt Schaefer, Kim Knight, along with Candace Elder, and members of the Mountainside Master Chorale, Maggie Riehn, Tom Molinaro, Joan Molinaro, and Richard Simpson, as alumni of Rydell High.

Performances of Grease are Tuesdays and Wednesdays, February 4, 10, 11, 17, and 18 at 7:30pm, and also a matinee performance on February 18 at 2:30pm, produced by IVRT at the Candlelight Pavilion in Claremont. Tickets: $30, plus a $2 handling fee.

Catch A Star Theatrical (CAST) Players’ presents Scream Queens: The Musical, directed by Ralph Griffey: Friday, February 20th through March 8 at the Beaumont Womens Community Center – 306 E. Sixth St. in Beaumont.

Scream Queens is an outrageously campy musical comedy about former B-movie horror actresses who reunite for a Sci-Fi convention in a hotel ballroom in 1998. These “Scream Queens” attempt to revive their fading acting careers by presenting a musical revue for their fans. From young newbie to seasoned grand dame, the Queens strut their stuff in song and dance. They also screen original clips from their direct-to-video “scary movie” spoofs such as “Revenge of the Psycho Bimbos” and “Malibu Vampire Vixens,” all hoping to attract the attention of a popular young horror film director lurking in the audience.

Scream Queens is the first of its kind in the Inland Empire. It is a mixed media production; a live play that includes video. It’s a musical that breaks the fourth wall and completely involves the audience. It is a complete send-up of everything about horror movies; a comedy with heart.

Don’t miss this show. It’s not just a play, it’s an EXPERIENCE.

The Opening night special on Friday, February 20th, will feature wine and cheese before the play for only $23; doors open at 6:30 p.m., curtain at 7:30 p.m. Other performances, admissions only $15, will be on Saturdays, February 21, 28 and March 7; doors open at 7:00 p.m., curtain at 7:30 p.m. and on Sundays, February 22, March 1 and 8; doors open at 2:30 p.m., curtain at 3:00 p.m. Students with valid ID are $12

You may make your reservations on-line at www.castplayers.org, or by calling the box office at 951-315-4253.

This astounding play, written by John Robin Baitz is put to life on stage by director Jeff Richards with an all star cast, Other Desert Cities is sure to bring joy and delight to all!

Brooke Wyeth, a once promising novelist, returns home after a six year absence to celebrate Christmas in Palm Springs with her parents, former members of the Reagan inner circle, her brother and her aunt. When Brooke announces she is about to publish a memoir focusing on an explosive chapter in the family’s history, the holiday reunion is thrown into turmoil as the Wyeths struggle to come to terms with their past.
* Show contains adult language. Not recommended for children.

This funny and searing play by the creator of TV’s Brothers & Sisters, which received universal acclaim in its off-Broadway debut, is filled with clever exchanges among family members who know exactly how to push one another’s buttons. Indeed, audiences feel as if they’re sitting with the Wyeths in their perfectly rendered mid-century-modern Palm Springs living room. If you crave a smartly written, beautifully acted new American play, Other Desert Cities is the ideal choice.
