Disney’s High School Musical is fun for the whole family. Its large cast size and upbeat numbers make it the ideal show for middle and high school productions or the highlight of any community theatre’s season!

THE BOYS NEXT DOOR AUDITIONS!

Directed by Ron Church

Sunday, February 24th, 2:00 pm-5:00 pm
Monday, February 25th, 6:30 pm-8:30 pm


Performance dates:

May 10 - May 25, 2019
Fridays & Saturdays @ 8:15 pm
Sundays @ 2:15 pm

The Story:
The Boys Next Door is set in a group home in a New England city where four mentally challenged men live under the supervision of an earnest but increasingly ‘burned out’ social worker named Jack. Each of the four men have different disabilities, and their stories are woven into scenes where ‘little things’ can become momentous (and often very funny) events, and they are mixed with moments of great poignancy when, with touching effectiveness, were are reminded that ALL people want only to love, laugh, and find some meaning and purpose in the brief time we are allotted on this earth.

The Cast: (7 Men, 2 Women)

Main Characters
• Arnold Wiggins, the ringleader of the group, is a man who lives with a mild mental disability who works at a movie theater as a janitor. He tends to be very obsessive compulsive. He is hyperactive and talks constantly. He's also often abused by coworkers and afraid to fight back. When he becomes angry or scared, Wiggins repeats the word 'nyеt', meaning no in Russian, and threatens to run away to Russia.

• Norman Bulansky is a middle-aged man with mental disabilities who works at a doughnut shop. Eating doughnuts at his job has caused him to become overweight. His girlfriend, Sheila, lives at another group home. Bulansky is very proud and possessive of a large ring of keys.

• Lucien P. Smith is a large African-American man who faces extremely debilitating mental disorders. Despite the fact that he cannot read, Smith insists on checking out armloads of books from the library. He is at risk of losing his disability funds when the state senate accuses him of faking his mental condition. Smith doesn't understand what is around him when he goes to the "State Sneck" resulting in a profound scene.

• Barry Klemper is a 28-year-old man with schizophrenia who believes he is a pro golfer. He gets highly agitated over small things. This is partly because Barry has had a traumatic life growing up. Later in the story, when Klemper's abusive father visits him for the first time in years, it proves harmful to his mental condition.

• Jack Palmer is the social worker for the four men. He's found himself increasingly burned out and is thinking about a new line of work. At the end of the play, Palmer leaves the men and becomes a travel agent.

• Sheila is Norman's girlfriend. Like Norman, she faces mental disabilities. She is also obsessed with Norman's prized keys and is "no skinny minnie herself".

• Mr. Klemper is Barry's abusive father. During the course of play, he decides to visit Barry while in the Boston area.

"THE BOYS NEXT DOOR is one of the most unusual…and one of the most rewarding plays in town." —BackStage. "Griffin's play hits squarely on the truth of life with its constant interplays and shadings of triumphs and tears." —NY Daily News. "THE BOYS

NEXT DOOR moves the audience to an awareness of how many things in everyday life we take for granted…" —NY Times.

Music by Tom Snow | Lyrics by Dean Pitchford | Stage Adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie | Based on the original screenplay by Dean Pitchford | Additional Music by Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.

FOOTLOOSE is presented through special arrangements with R & H Theatreicals: www.rnh.com.

Consider yourself at home with Lionel Bart's classic musical based on Charles Dickens' novel, Oliver Twist. The Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike.

The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.

Welcome to the Annual Holiday Variety Show and Christmas Pageant at St. Everybody's Non-Denominational Universalist Church, where all faiths are welcome because we'll believe anything.

An irreverent yet heartwarming trip through the holidays, THE ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS SHOW (ABRIDGED) is festive, funny, physical, family fun as these Three Wise Guys send up and celebrate our favorite holiday traditions.
