Announcing the Cast of SMHS Theatre Company’s “Singin’ in the Rain”

We were so thrilled to have a fantastic turnout for Singin’ in the Rain auditions! We had our callbacks today for the main roles, and were thoroughly impressed with the talent that was on display. After deliberation, we have completed the cast list for the show.

Students: if you accept your role, please visit the Thespian Call Board on Wednesday and initial next to your name.

Wednesday after school at 3 PM we will have crew leadership position interviews. Following those interviews at 3:30 we will have the first information and introductory session for the musical. This will include script passout, overview of the rehearsal process and the required SMPAC safety seminar. All cast and crew are required to attend.

Finally, a note about the ensemble designations. “General Ensemble” also contains other small speaking roles that are not listed on this cast list. Those roles will be assigned during rehearsal. “Dance Ensemble” is a separate ensemble of featured dancers and singers for the songs “All I Do is Dream of You,” “Beautiful Girls” and “Broadway Melody.” These are the most tap-heavy roles in the production. They are also in the general ensemble in some other scenes.

Announcing our 2019 Spring Musical!

We are excited to announce our spring musical for the 2018-2019 school year, Singin’ in the Rain!

Adapted from the 1952 movie of the same name, the plot closely adheres to the original. Set in Hollywood in the waning days of the silent screen era, it focuses on romantic lead Don Lockwood, his sidekick Cosmo Brown, aspiring actress Kathy Selden, and Lockwood’s leading lady Lina Lamont, whose less-than-dulcet vocal tones make her an unlikely candidate for stardom in talking pictures.

According to Music Theater International:

Singin’ in the Rain has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline – the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item but, behind the scenes, things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career in ‘talking pictures’ without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her.”

Auditions and callbacks for Singin’ in the Rain will be held January 7 and 8, 2019, with an audition workshop on January 4. Auditions will consist of singing and dancing, with some reading of lines from the script.

Audition materials will be available on www.smhstheatre.org sometime in December before winter break. Show dates are March 15-17, 2019 in the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center.

If you are interested in getting involved as a volunteer for the show, we are always in need of help for costuming, set construction, makeup and more. Contact us to learn how you can get involved, we greatly appreciate any help you’re willing to lend us!

We look forward to taking on this challenging, classic show this spring!

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.
