Written by Lucille Fletcher
Directed by Susan O’Connell

The audition will consist of cold readings from the script. Please come prepared with a resume, head shot, pen/pencil, and list of conflicts.

PLOT:
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.

The Grove Theatre is excited to announce the opening of Disney’s Tarzan on Friday, August 25th, under the direction of Paul Jacques.

Washed up on the shores of West Africa, an infant boy is taken in and raised by gorillas who name him Tarzan. Apart from striving for acceptance from his ape father, Tarzan’s life is mostly monkey business until a human expedition treks into his tribe’s territory, and he encounters creatures like himself for the first time. Tarzan struggles to navigate a jungle, thick with emotion, as he discovers his animal upbringing clashing with his human instincts.

Tarzan is based on Disney’s epic animated musical adventure and Edgar Rice Burrough’s Tarzan of the Apes. The show features music by rock legend, Phil Collins, and a book by Tony Award-winning playwright, David Henry Hwang. Academy Award winning “You’ll Be in My Heart,” as well as “Son of Man” and “Two Worlds,” make Tarzan an unforgettable theatrical experience for the entire family.

Tarzan runs for two weekends through Sunday, September 3rd.  Tickets are $20.00 and $25.00 for adults and $15 for children and can be purchased by calling (909) 920-4343, by visiting The Grove box office or on our website at www.grovetheatre.com. The Grove Theatre is located at 276 E. Ninth Street, Upland, CA 91786.

A brood of famous and longing-to-be-famous creative artists have gathered at their summer home during the Williamstown Theatre Festival. A quiet reprieve from the noise of the city. But in this homage to Chekhov, the weekend takes an unexpected turn and incites a series of improvisations, simmering jealousies, romantic outbursts, and passionate soul-searching. Both witty and compelling, is comedy provides a piercing look at a family of performers coming to terms with the roles they play in each other’s lives. Continue reading
