Improv Anyone? [24 May 2006|07:36pm]

Hey, it's Sam from Lexington. Since the year is coming to an end, the improv group at our high school is performing more and more. We have three more shows in June coming up and we'd love to be able to perform for people from other towns.

The LHS Improv Troupe is made up of 14 high schoolers and is mostly student run with a faculty adviser. Our shows last generally from an hour to an hour and a half. We do mostly short form games (Who's Line type stuff), but end the show with a long form. The shows are in the Blackbox theater (Rm. 200) at LHS and will probably be free or a recommended donation of $2 (so still free basically).

The show times are:

Thursday, June 1st at 7:30 PM
Tuesday, June 6th at 7:30 PM
Last show in late June TBD

We'd love to see people from other schools. If you have any questions or are interested in coming, please comment and I'll get back to you quickly. So if you wanna spice up a week night, come down to see some high school improv!

Awsome job to everyone that was at ipswich for prelims!! and good luck to everybody at semis!!! competition just rocks!!

also, major props to Human Kind, the play itself was great, and then, it was original! omg, that just made it more amazing, awsome job guys

I saw the pictures of duxbury, and it looks like a awsome theater!, couple questions though, first, is there a fly system for that fly space? i can tell there is fly space, are the electrics white? it seems like they were, and that would be retarted, i just wasn't sure, also, does that second catwalk do much good? it seems too far away to do anything, these were thoughts from the pictures, it looks awsome, i just would have had a black celing and darker colors, actually one last thing, its got the polished wood front, do you guys cap that at all? ours has one too, some people just don't understand the glare you get! lol, and we actually made a masonite cover that is painted black for it

also, along the lines of theaters, what did people who have been to the Ipswich IPAC think of the theater? any comments about it? good or bad.. i always am like "omg, this theater is so much better then ours" but there is worse then ours, i was just wondering!

I'm a new member of this community and i'm shocked i actually found it lol.

I'm from Bellingham High. This is my/our school's third year going to DramaFest.

We just finished two one act plays. We usually do one one-act alongside the one-act that we bring to DramaFest. This year we did The Crazy Mixed Up Island of Dr. Moreau, it was a parody of the book/several movies of the same title although it was very different (in fact I'm suspicious if it is just different enough to not require getting permission from anyone) I played Dr. Moreau. And the one we are bringing is called The Spirit of Life, it's made up of several true stories of the holocaust.

We just started our full-length for the spring, it's Alice in Wonderland, I got casted as Humpty Dumpty and the Queen of Hearts' Executioner.

I'm also directing one of our school's first Student-Directed plays, it's The Princess and the Pea.

Well, I guess there's nothing much more to say.

Is anyone else here going to be in Attleboro for the Festival.

Hey Everyone,

I go to Newton North High School (NNHS),

We just had auditions this week for our spring musical:


Production Dates March 23, 24, 25, 26
Venue Lasker Auditorium
Time of Show 7:30pm/2:00pm on the 26th
Ticket Price $10 and $14

by Joseph Stein
Directed by Caitlin McGee and Tori Gwin

Production Dates January 12, 13, 14
Venue Lasker Auditorium
Time of Show 7:30 p.m.
Ticket Price $5.00

Enter Laughing by Joseph Stein is a sidesplitting comedy about a young man named David working in a sewing machine repair shop, who decides to pursue a career as an actor. His carefree manner and charismatic ladies-man persona impair his ability to keep a healthy relationship with his girlfriend Wanda. As if being an actor isn't hard enough, David must deal with his over-involved Jewish parents who are convinced he has a promising future as a druggist, and an elderly boss who thinks David aspires to be the heir to his shop. Through David's relationships with his quirky parents, director, boss and friends, the audience is given an insightful view into the hardships of life in the theatre and the message that nothing should stop you from following your dreams.


Presented by The Fingerpaint Players

Production Dates December 2006
Venue Libraries and Schools
Time of Show TBA
Ticket Price FREE!
Don't miss the second season of Theatre Ink's Children's Theatre troupe, The Fingerpaint Players in "The Princess and the Pea". This original production will tour throughout Newton at schools, libraries and after-school programs. Will the Princess feel the Pea under the mountain of mattresses and wed the Prince? The zany antics of the Fingerpaint players will bring you their version of this wonderful Hans Christian Anderson tale.


The Improvisation Show
Student directed by Mary Lauran Hall and Jonathan Jaffee-Anechiarico

Production Dates March 2, 3, 4
Venue The Little Theatre
Time of Show 7:30 p.m.
Ticket Price $5.00
Spontaneous Generation is Newton North Theatre Ink's improvisational theatre troupe. Every year they perform a crazy, zany, off-the-wall completely improvised show.

Production Dates March 23, 24, 25, 26

by Robert Harling

Venue The Little Theatre

The play that inspired the highly acclaimed movie, Robert Harling's Steel Magnolias is "the funniest play ever to make you cry." Steel Magnolias is a witty and bitingly sarcastic mix of drama and comedy. Watch as six southern women muse over their small town life and complex life issues in a local beauty salon. See their bond grow stronger with the unexpected death of a loved one and watch as they choose laughter to remedy their grief. Filled with humor and heartbreak, these "Steel Magnolias" make us laugh and cry, as they are hilarious and marvelously lovable in good times and bad.


Production Dates May 18, 19, 20, 21
Venue Newton South
Time of Show 7:30 p.m.
Ticket Price TBA



by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by Maria Fulwiler and Zack Baer

"Someone's been messing around with our fairy tales."
When a Baker and his Wife learn that their inability to bear a child is due to a curse cast by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest to gather the special objects required to break the spell, swindling and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack (of beanstalk fame). Through suffering and sacrifice, the Baker and his Wife, as well as the other fairy tale characters' wishes are fulfilled, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them, with disastrous results. When an angry giant poses a threat to the community, all of the characters are forced to unite to overcome this great malevolent force. What begins as a lively, irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility, the danger in wishing, dealing with loss, and the stories we tell our children. "Into the Woods," James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim's Tony Award-winning sinister, fractured fairy tale, depicts life after "happily ever after."
