2007-2008 Season

It's early, I know to be thinking of next year, but honestly, this is when the thinking needs to begin. I have a sense of the talent base that will carry over, and I have a sense of the technical challenges I want to tackle.

So, the calendar, first of all: We again will have SIX full length productions
  • The Summer Workshop, beginning rehearsals at the end of July and going on stage in the Little Theater the second week of school
  • A fall date for a Senior Project, in the Little Theater the 3rd weekend in October
  • The Fall Play, a main stage production the weekend before Thanksgiving
  • The Winter Play, a main stage production the final weekend in February
  • A spring date for a Senior Project, in the Little Theater the 2nd or 3rd week of March
  • The Musical, on the main stage two weekends spanning the end of April and beginning of May
In addition, we will have regional competition exhibition in late January, a one act to take to State, and two or three nights of short scenes later in May -- plenty of opportunity to act!!

So the question: What to do? One show is already selected already - in early June, we will audition The Fantasticks, a musical with 9 roles. 2 must be male, 1 must be female. The remainder have some flexibility.

Beyond that? I want your thoughts

Damn, can't we do Much Ado in the Fall and A Philadelphia Story in the winter.

Well I guess in any case next year will be another amazing one!
