Here are descriptions of the two short plays being done in the showcase:

FREE By Lindsay Price

Two teenagers come across an abandoned picnic. A sign in front of the picnic says, “Free Food.”

Promisetown has been in dire straits ever since the local factory closed two years ago. The townspeople attempt to divide the food fairly, but end up struggling to reconcile their belief systems with their greed.

A stranger appears out of nowhere, offering to solve their problems, but ends up altering the town’s course forever.

A gripping character-driven drama.

THE BALONEY, THE PICKLE, THE ZOMBIES, AND

OTHER THINGS I HIDE FROM MY MOTHER By Bradley Walton

“What are you doing with the baloney?” That’s the question Emma asks her big sister Trina when she finds her in the kitchen at 2 A.M.

But Trina is up to much more than a late night snack-she’s bringing food to life with experiements she hopes will lead to the creation of zombies she can sell as cheap laborers.

Together with her living baloney-minion, Meyer. Trina is about to embark on a night in which she will face an angry neighbor, be questioned by the police, bring a pickle to life, and discover that her food may actually be smarter than she is….all while trying to keep everything from her mother and little sister.

A fantastical journey of comedy.

Join us for an evening serious thought provoking drama and ridiculous comedy!

Both plays are presented through special arrangement with THEATREFOLK.

Our Town

Our Town by Thornton Wilder  (TICKETS AND SHOWTIMES HERE!)

AUDITIONS:

When

March 19th at 6:30pm

March 20 at 6:30pm

Where

1703 E. 14th Street, Greenville, NC

Also, inform us of all your possible schedule conflicts at the audition. We will have a few rehearsals with the Stage Manager and the Gibbs family and Webb family during the first two weeks following auditions. After April 17th , we will begin rehearsals in earnest for an opening on June 2nd.

The Stage Manager has the bulk of the lines in the show and should expect to memorize the part verbatim.

There are 24-27 roles in this ensemble. Some of the roles may be doubled. That is, if necessary, some players will be asked to play more than one role. There also may be some understudies who will have both their role to learn and another role as a back-up in case of illness.

The play will be performed in its entirety. This is a requirement of the publishers. Everyone will learn their parts as written by Thornton Wilder. He is the Pulitzer Prize winner, not our actors. Please be prepared to read from the script.

Our Town will run from June 2nd to June 10th. There may be an additional performance for a special audience during one of our dress or pick-up rehearsals.

Show Information:

The play is set in Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire in 1901. It is a play about the human condition as all good plays are. Thornton Wilder won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1938 for this work. The first act is about daily life in this small town. The second act is titled Love and Marriage and is centered around the wedding of Emily Webb to George Gibbs. The third act is set in a cemetery and is titled Death and Dying. The act’s central theme focuses on how life is not truly appreciated by the living while they live.

The main character is the Stage Manager who sets the scene and facilitates the advancement of the plot. He/she acts as both a chorus to the action and during the play takes on several roles and enters the action. The stage manager has been variously played by Thornton Wilder himself, Hal Halbrook, Spaulding Gray, Paul Newman, Helen Hunt and recently by David Cromer who also directed the play at the Barrow Street Theater in New York.

Frank Capra’s beloved American holiday classic comes to life as a live 1940’s radio broadcast.

George Bailey is a small-town man whose life seems so desperate he contemplates suicide. He has always wanted to leave Beford Falls to see the world, but circumstances and his own good heart have led him to stay. He sacrificed his education for his brother’s, kept the family-run savings and loan afloat, protected the town from the avarice of the greedy banker Mr. Potter, and married his childhood sweetheart. As he prepares to jump from a bridge, his guardian angel intercedes, showing hi what life would have become for the residentsof Bedford Falls if he had never lived.
