Announcing the Cast for A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED

We were pleased to see faces both new and familiar at auditions today for A Murder is Announced! Those in attendance gave us plenty to deliberate over, and we are pleased to announce the cast list.

STUDENTS: PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS INFORMATION

-If you were cast in a role and choose to accept your role, please write your initials next to your name on the sheet that will be posted on the Thespian bulletin board. This sheet will go up by lunchtime tomorrow, not  first thing in the morning, so by lunchtime, make sure you go and check the board and write your initials.

-If you were not cast in a role, we strongly encourage you to get involved with crew, with publicity or with costuming! There are going to be plenty of opportunities to be a part of this show, and the more the merrier. We would love to have you! In addition, please remember that musical auditions for Tuck Everlasting will be in the first week of January, with audition workshops in December. It will be a much larger cast–potentially three times as large as the cast for the fall play this year.

-ALL cast and crew are required to attend tomorrow’s informational session, beginning after school in the PAC. We will conduct crew leadership interviews for Stage Manager, Head of Lights and Sound, Head of Costumes, Head of Hair and Makeup, Head of Publicity and Head of Construction right away, then move into our safety seminar and then an informational session. Again, attendance is mandatory–if you cannot make it, please email smhstheatrecompany@gmail.com as soon as possible.

Announcing our 2018 Fall Play

We are pleased to announce that South Milwaukee High School Theatre Company’s fall play will be Almost, Maine by John Cariani!

“Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.”

Almost, Maine has been one of the more popular high school shows in America over the last several years for its touching depictions of love and loss in unique, magical ways. The show features a series of vignettes loosely tied together by these themes and the fictional northeastern woodsy setting.

Shows will run November 9th and 10th at 7:30 p.m. and November 11th at 2:00 p.m., all in the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center. Tickets will be available to the public soon.

Audition date and information will be available soon on the website, and we will also publicize the information on our official Facebook page, so be sure to “like” and follow us there.
