PERFORMANCES
A Christmas Carol
at the Stranahan Theatre
December 4 and 5, 8:00 pm; December 6, 2:30 pm

Directed by Debra Ross Calabrese

The classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, the curmudgeonly miser, in Victorian England who learns to love more than his money. No story speaks to our longing for charity at the holiday season as Charles Dickens’ classic tale of greed and redemption. Big, beautiful sets, gorgeous costumes, original music combined with traditional holiday favorites played by a live orchestra, and energetic dancing give our traditional holiday performance timeless appeal. Join a large cast of adults, teens, children, a pony and one crusty, old miser for this holiday classic performed at the beautiful Stranahan Theater. A holiday treat for the entire family!
Tickets: Adult: $25; Child: $15; Seniors $20; Active Military Family Discount (with I.D.), $5; Group pricing available. Tickets on sale at the Stranahan Theatre box office, 419.381.8851.

From the author of Moon Over Buffalo and Lend me a Tenor comes the hilarious exploits of two down on their luck English Shakespearean actors.

AUDITION
Auntie Mame
Saturday, January 9, 2010, 1 pm, at the Tenth Street Theatre
(performances: April 16 – May 2, 2010)

directed by Lee Krähenbühl

25 men, 12 women, 3 boys (these include numerous bit parts, and extensive doubling is possible): 20 total.
This fabulously successful hit hardly needs introduction. Besides being the source for one of America’s most popular musicals, AUNTIE MAME set a standard for Broadway comedy that’s been sought after ever since. “Auntie Mame was a handsome, sparkling, scatterbrained and warm-hearted lady who brightened the American landscape from 1928 to the immediate past by her whimsical gaiety, her slightly madcap adventures and her devotion to her young nephew, who grew up to be Patrick Dennis. Through fortunes that rose and fell and a pleasant but brief marriage to a likable Southerner, who had the bad luck to tumble down from the Matterhorn, Auntie Mame’s chief concern was that nephew, whom she raised…[the play’s] central figure is a woman of spirit, innate kindness and undefeatable courage…”—NY Post.
