Stage Door seeking directors for 2013-14 Season
The Stage Door is proud to announce a fantastic slate of shows for the 2013-14 Season (the season runs from September through June) and they are currently seeking directors for these shows.
The Stage Door will entertain bids from directors with all levels of experience. The theater has a proud tradition of hiring first time directors. The only way to gain experience is to be given a chance, and with a little guidance and tutelage, The Stage Door has seen the birth of many fine directors.
The 2013-14 slate consists of the five following shows:
“Rumors” by Neil Simon (Show dates September 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, & 15, 2013) – The Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of Farce. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer and wife must get “the story” straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and mis-communications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.
“Halloween Screams” by L. Don Swartz (Show dates October 25, 26, 27, 31, November 1, 2, & 3, 2013) – When a theatre group in Chestnut Hollow agrees to transform the community center’s basement into a Halloween spook house, little do they know that the basement is already haunted! Phantom laughter, flying skulls, ghostly photographs and other worldly voices are just some of the clues that help the troupers unearth the secret that has been buried in the basement for over 200 years.
“Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” by Larry L. King and Peter Masterson, Music and Lyrics by Carol Hall (Show dates February 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, & 23, 2014) – This happy go lucky view of small town vice and statewide political side-stepping recounts the good times and the demise of the Chicken Ranch, known since the 1850s as one of the better pleasure palaces in all of Texas. Governors, senators, mayors, and even victorious college football teams frequent Miss Mona’s cozy bordello until that puritan nemesis Watchdog focuses his television cameras and his righteous indignation on the institution.
“A Piece of my Heart” by Shirley Lauro (Show dates April 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, & 13, 2014) – This is a powerful, true drama of six women who went to Vietnam: five nurses and one country western singer booked to entertain the troops. The play portrays each young woman before, during, and after her tour in the war-torn nation and ends as each leaves a personal token at the memorial wall in Washington. A Piece of my Heart has recently been named “The most enduring play on Vietnam in the nation,” by the Vietnam Vets Association.
“Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” adapted for the stage by Randal Myler (Show dates June 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, & 15, 2014) – Relive the great riverboat days of the Mississippi with Huck Finn, Tom Sawyer and Jim in this new adaptation. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a folktale chock-full of outlandish episodes, as two outcasts, fleeing down the Mississippi on a makeshift raft, yield to a current that brings a new view of their society and, finally, themselves.
All interested parties are asked to contact The Stage Door at 265-1590 (leave a message) or e-mail the theater at firstname.lastname@example.org.
