Greetings Playhouse fans!
First, I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE opens Friday at 8 p.m. and continues Saturday at 8 p.m and Sunday at 2 p.m. It then runs again next weekend, June 11, 12, 13. This is a musical comedy that was hit on Broadway and at many, many regional, college and community theaters. The show is about love, dating and marriage. The six actors portray different characters throughout the show. It is funny, funny, funny. If you have ever dated, been married, been part of a family or been in love, you will find something familiar and delightful about this show.
Please make reservations and plans to attend. Also if you are interested in helping with the front of house duties, please let me know
Call 575-393-0676 for reservations. (Recommended for mature audiences due to some mild language and mature themes)
Second, this is for the male actors.
My college professor from Wayland Baptist University called me this weekend. Every summer, the WBU theater program performs a show at Spencer Theater in Ruidoso. This year they are performing "Elephant Man" on June 18.
My professor, Dr. Marti Runnels is looking for a male actor to portray several parts in "Elephant Man" (he had a male actor drop at the last moment). Rehearsals involve up to nine days in Plainview, Texas, and then nine days in Ruidoso. Room and board will be provided at both places and due to the last minute request, the actor would not have to be there for all 18 days of the rehearsals. There also may be a small stipend available to do it but that would have to be a conversation with Dr. Runnels. In short, there is flexibility in participating.
Why do this?
One, it is an opportunity to perform on the Spencer stage, an acclaimed regional theater stage.
Two, Wayland's theater productions are quality shows and are great learning experiences. (Runnels taught me most of what I know about theater).
Three, it is a chance to network with people involved in the Spencer theater program as well as WBU theater's program (which has sent graduates on to other professional jobs throughout the region, etc).
Four, it is chance to spend a free week with no expenses in Ruidoso.
If you are interested, please let me know ASAP and I'll make introductions for you. I'm sure it would be an experience that would not disappoint.
Your "Perfect, Now Change" president,
Remember, the Playhouse has 73 years of history and the "community" in community theater means everyone, including you!
