Are you ready to ROCK ‘N ROLL?! (PLUS…have you seen THE DUELING CAVALIER?!)

Tom Stoppard’s explosive masterwork about love, politics and rock ‘n roll takes the stage this weekend as the sixth show in our Ubu’s Other Shoe Staged Reading series. ROCK ‘N ROLL is directed by Leticia Velez Ericson and features 13 exceptional local actors: Robin Kirk Wolf, Creston Cooper, Micaela Morgan, Gregory Gorrindo, Michael Siebrass, Rosh Wright, Katherine Blauvelt, Gerald Manata, Jonathan Shadrach, Frank Moe, Tony Taylor, Debora Schwartz and Kate Kravets. If you love ROCK ‘N ROLL, history, comedy, drama and great theatre, don’t miss this one. Besides it’s only $10!  Friday is currently sold-out, but tickets are still available for two shows on Saturday, March 21st at 2 pm and 7 pm. But I’d act quickly if I were you! Click HERE to get your tickets today.

Director John Battalino is looking for three, just three, very talented actors to take on the challenge of COPENHAGEN, Michael Frayn’s Tony Award winning play about an event that occurred in Copenhagen in 1941, a meeting between the famous physicists Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg. The third character in this intimate drama is that of Bohr’s wife Margrethe Norlund, who was a very important part of his life and work. Auditions will take place on Sunday, March 22nd at 6 pm. Actors will be asked to read from the script. The show will run May 1 and 2, 2015. Find out more about auditions HERE.
And don’t miss this Academy of Creative Theatre student-acted staged reading of CYRANO on March 27 & 28 at 7 pm right here at the Little Theatre. The classic tale has been adapted into an engaging three-person staged reading for young actors, and our young ACT actors — Jed Authier, Penny DellaPelle and Trevyn Wong — are awesome!  The reading is directed by Kerry DiMaggio, ably assisted by student director Elizabeth Tharp. Tickets are just $10 and benefit the scholarship fund for the Academy of Creative Theatre. Get your tickets HERE!
And if you’re having withdrawal pangs, since the closing performance of SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN last weekend, have I got a treat for you! Ryan Loyd of RyLo Media Design has made the brilliant films he created for our popular production available on YouTube!  Both The Royal Rascal and The Dueling Cavalier can now be enjoyed by all, in the comfort of your own office or living room. Ain’t it awesome?! 
So, I will leave you now to enjoy the silliness of these films — one silent, one…not so much — and I hope to see you this weekend for ROCK ‘N ROLL!

“Yes, Yes, Yes!  No, No, No!”
