A. OUR SEASON

SHATTERING STEREOTYPES

2016-2017 Season

The Diviners 

The Diviners is the story of an autistic young man and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher in southern Indiana in the early 1930s. When the boy was young he almost drowned. That trauma, coupled with the loss of his mother in the same accident, has left him deathly afraid of water. The preacher, who has given up the church, works as a mechanic for the boy's father. The townswomen try to persuade him to return to preaching while he tries to persuade the child to wash. When he finally gets the boy in the river and is washing him, the townspeople mistake the scene for a baptism. They descend on the event and, in the confusion, it ends in tragedy.

In the Ole Kittleson Theatre directed by Mr. Aaron Blokker.

Auditions: Sept 6 & 7

Performances: November 2 - 12, 2016

 

Legally Blonde

Legally Blonde The Musical, follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery, and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. Elle Woods appears to have it all. But her life is turned upside-down when her boyfriend dumps her so he can start getting serious about his life and attend Harvard Law School. Determined to get him back, Elle uses her charm to get into Harvard. At school, she struggles with peers, professors, and naysayers. But Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world. Legally Blonde explodes on the stage with memorable songs and dynamic dances. Equal parts hilarious and heart-warming, this musical is so much fun it should be illegal!

Summer and Smoke

Set in Glorious Hill, Mississippi in 1915, Tennessee Williams’ Summer and Smoke is the not-so-simple love story of a somewhat puritanical minister’s daughter and the decidedly unpuritanical young doctor who lives next door. Each is attracted to the other but because of their divergent attitudes toward life, over the course of years, each is driven away from the other. By the play's end, however,they have traded places philosophically. He tries to convince her that what they had between them was indeed a "spiritual bond", but she realizes that it is too late. He has come to value the spirituality she embodied her entire life while she comes to embrace the sensuality for which he had lived his life. In the Ole Kittleson Theatre directed by Mr. Mark Stevens. Auditions: December 12 & 13. Performances: March 1-4 & 8-11.
