Racine’s Theatre On Main Looking to Cast for a Summer Production of RENT

By Russ Bickerstaff
Doubtlessly one of the biggest contributions of the ‘90’s to the world of popular stage musicals, RENT has maintained a great deal of momentum over the years. The problem with any big-budget staging of the show is the fact that professional Equity stage actors lack the kind of stage presence the show seems to be reaching for. There’s kind of a wild, young scattered feel about the show tha...

Greendale Community Theatre staging Tim Rice/Elton John musical

By Russ Bickerstaff
Greendale Community Theatre is one of those inadvertent secrets of local theatre. Yes, the Greendale High School Auditorium gets quite a few people in for their shows, but many of these productions are remarkably polished projects, some of which feel only a couple of Equity actors shy of something you’d find in the theatre district. Greendale Community Theatre is going to be holding open audit...

Racine’s Over Our Head Players look for a cast for Yasmina Reza’s ART

By Russ Bickerstaff
  Racine’s Over Our Head Players is looking for a cast for Art. Contemporary French playwright Yasmina Reza’s Art is a four-character drama, but as one of the characters is an inanimate blank, white canvas with a few white lines on it and no dialogue, they’ll probably have a prop stand-in for that one. The drama concerns three men. One of them purchased the painting for a ridiculous sum ...

Acacia Theatre Looking to cast early 19th Century Drama

By Russ Bickerstaff
Based on the story by Isak Dinesen, Babette’ Feast is a clever idea for an early 20th century drama. A French refugee finds herself amongst a group of people in a Norwegian religious community that has shunned all worldly pleasures. The French refugee wants to thank them for their kindness. Should they turn it down? The story was adapted to an acclaimed 1987 film. A stage adaptation of the sto...

Acacia Theatre looking for lead in musical based on Lucy Maud Montgomery classic

By Russ Bickerstaff
A pale countenance dotted with freckles, and long braids of red hair. (Or something like that.) Not everyone who has come to love the Lucy Maud Montgomery classic Anne of Green Gables will picture quite exactly the same face. But everyone familiar with the character knows her when they see her. And so it is that Acacia Theatre is looking for someone to play Anne in an upcoming production. The N...
