The R-ACT family has already been busy at work for 2015 on our first production of the year, “Do Not Disturb,” by Van Zandt and Milmore. This show is a set of six one-act plays set in a large city hotel room and so a slight departure from our usual productions. Don’t worry though-you’ll get your usual fair share of laughs, just spread out over a few more characters.
The two (yep-two) directors had their usual difficulty in choosing from the talented folks who came to offer their services. But choices were made and the rehearsals are almost behind us with opening night in a matter of weeks. So far, there have been many laughs from the cast as you can see from our backstage picture, and the set is almost ready to go after some great work from our design and construction volunteers.
Along with some great shows this year, R-ACT members are planning some great new programming for the community to enjoy. We’re hosting a paddle-party fundraiser in March, a red-eye bus trip to NYC in April, a new kids theater camp in July, and a new type of show featuring classic TV sitcoms to round out the summer as well.
As you can see, this year’s going to be fun-filled and jam-packed with opportunities to join R-ACT in some great shows and events. Remember that we welcome new talent on stage as well as behind the scenes. We always need volunteers for tasks big and small so join us at our next monthly meeting on February 5th at 7pm at the Avenue Theater, and see how you can get in on the action.
Remember to mark your calendar for our first show of the season on February 13th-15th, and plan on coming out to enjoy “Do Not Disturb.”
