FALL SHOW : “HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY
Power, sex, ambition and greed…it’s just another day at
the office. From Abe Burrows and Frank Loesser comes one of the most
delightfully irreverent musicals of all time. Big business means big laughs as
“How to Succeed…” celebrates the Great American Corporate Way and lampoons
it at the same time.
The story charts the meteoric rise of an ambitious window
washer who, with the help of a simple guidebook, gets the job, gets the girl,
gets the raise, and gets the attention of the Big Boss himself. This tune-filled
gem, which opened in 1961 with Robert Morse and had a revival in 1995 with
Matthew Broderick, is a gold mine of laughs and music.
Returning director Bob Kaplan, who directed the delightful
“Sylvia” in the spring of ’04, and an enthusiastic cast including
Playcrafters’ own Nick Sanna, Bill
Rudock, Jane Maushay, Jen
Merritt, Linda Hillman, Peter
Morrison, and many newcomers, will provide an evening of fun. We are pleased to
welcome Dan Stravino as our musical director and returning choreographer Debbie
Bieler (Leader of the Pack). We encourage
all our members to attend! Your support is necessary and appreciated. Please
attend one of our performances to make this production a success.
Performance dates: Friday and Saturday Oct. 28th

and 5th, 8:00 P.M.
Tickets: $15.00, seniors and students $12.00
Performed at Bellport Middle School

-- “INHERIT THE WIND”
Playcrafters is pleased to announce the return of Readers
Theater with the production of “Inherit the Wind” by Jerome Lawrence and
Robert E. Lee. This intense
courtroom drama based on the “Scopes Monkey Trial”, about a teacher brought
to trail for teaching evolution in a Tennessee classroom, is still as poignant
today as it was in 1925 when the actual trial took place.
Readers Theater is another venue that Playcrafters uses to
creatively explore and present various works of drama.
The use of a “dramatic reading” enables the audience to truly
experience and appreciate the playwright’s work.
It also provides individuals who are reluctant to perform on stage, the
opportunity to be involved as an actor without the intense rehearsal and
performance schedule associated with our other productions. Auditions are opened
to Playcrafter members only, so those members who have been away from the stage,
here’s your chance to come back and share your talent again.
This Readers Theater production will be directed by John
Hannon, and produced by Judy Perfido. The
date of the performance is Sunday, February 12, 2006 (snow date, Sunday,
February 26, 2006). John is looking for 10 males and 2 females for major roles,
along with 3 to 4 males and 3 females for multiple roles. Auditions are
scheduled for the first week in January of 2006.
For further information, please contact John Hannon at (631) 286-1730.
This Readers Theater presentation is a “Thank You” to
the membership for their continued support of Playcrafters. Admission is free to
paid members of Playcrafters and $7.00 for non members.
That is our website and we encourage you to visit it often to keep up to date with our activities. For example, there is information about our scholarship program and a list of the winners since it was initiated in 1965.
