Master Class by Terrence McNally

Directed by Farley Norman

Rehearsals September 10 – October 4, Performances October 5-21, 2017

 

Aging diva Maria Callas is teaching a master class in front of an audience. She’s glamorous, commanding, larger than life—and drop-dead funny. She and her accompanist have three young singers coming to learn from the great Callas.  The lessons are far from what they and she expect.

 

Cast

Maria Callas – 40+, former opera star who still commands a devoted following

Manny – her accompanist, must play the piano

Sophie – a first soprano, must sing

Tony – a tenor, must sing

Sharon – a second soprano, must sing

Venus in Fur by David Ives

Directed by Greg Proccacino

Rehearsals – January 21 – February 14, Performances February 15 – March 3, 2018

 

Thomas is desperate to find an actress to play Vanda, the female lead in his adaptation of the classic sadomasochistic tale Venus in Fur. Into his empty audition room walks a vulgar and equally desperate actress—oddly enough, named Vanda. Though utterly wrong for the sophisticated part (she’s brash, vulgar and unschooled), Vanda exhibits a strange command of the material, piquing Thomas’ interest with her seductive talents and secretive manner. As the two work through the script, they blur the line between play and reality, entering into an increasingly serious game of submission and domination that only one of them can win. A mysterious, funny, erotic drama that represents yet another departure for the multifaceted David Ives.

 

Cast

Thomas – a beleaguered playwright/director

Vanda – mid to late 20’s, an actress who is a bit off-beat but with the ability to transform to the parts in the Thomas’ play


A Life in the Theatre by David Mamet

Directed by Elizabeth Harris

Rehearsals March 18 – April 11, Performances April 12 – 28, 2018

 

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Glengarry Glen Ross and Speed-The-Plow, takes us into the lives of two actors: John, young and rising into the first flush of his success; the other Robert, older, anxious, and beginning to wane. In a series of short, spare, and increasingly raw exchanges, we see the estrangement of youth from age and the wider, inevitable and endless cycle of life, in and out of the theatre.

 

Cast

Robert – 50, an older actor

John – 25-35, a younger actor
