Toby doesn’t want to go to summer camp. He’d rather stay home, alone in his room with his games. He has a bad attitude about everything until he is visited by three spooky friends, each with their own lesson. This fun musical teaches about the power of a positive attitude and taking a chance on friends.

January 13 through February 4 on Saturdays and Sundays at 1pm
 
Teachers who are considering bringing  Choices to their school get a free ticket.

Two Audition Notices

The Twelve Dancing Princesses
Sutter Street Theatre
Book and Lyrics by Jennifer Kirkeby
Music by Shirley Mier
Directed by Lisa Dillion
Sunday, January 7 at 7:00pm

Auditions will be held at the Sutter Street Theatre Annex, 710 Figueroa Street Folsom -- one block up from the theatre in a white building with a parking lot in front between Wool and Riley Streets.
Synopsis: Enter the magical world of twelve princesses who love to dance. Each night, they sing the song that allows them secret passage into the enchanted forest. Once they arrive, the trees sparkle and chime with silver and gold leaves, beautiful music plays and the spirit of their mother watches over them. In the meantime, their father, the king, is perplexed, and the shoemaker and his apprentices are exasperated, but the princesses must dance. Then one day, the king (tired of finding twelve pairs of worn shoes outside his daughters’ room each morning) issues a proclamation. The first person to discover the secret of where the princesses go each night shall receive his or her heart’s desire and eight bags of gold! After an entertaining visit from the Prince of Arrogance (“Talking about me is my favorite thing to do!”), Matthew the commoner comes to visit. And when the Spirit Mother gives Matthew an invisibility cloak, events rapidly begin to change.
All ages from children to seniors are invited to audition.

Duck Hunter Shoots Angel
by Mitch Albom
Directed by Michael Coleman
 
Auditions held at Sutter Street Theatre, 717 Sutter Street, Folsom
Sunday, January 7 at 7:000pm
 
DUCK HUNTER SHOOTS ANGEL is the uproarious story of two bumbling Alabama brothers who have never shot a duck but think they shot an angel. As they lament their fates in a murky swamp, they are chased by a cynical tabloid journalist and his reluctant photographer, who don’t believe any of it—until feathers, wings and a tiara are discovered along the way. The play hysterically interweaves a love story, sibling rivalry, tawdry media, race relations and cultural stereotypes as the chase to find the angel builds to a crescendo in the swamp. Ultimately a sweet allegory about redemption, DUCK HUNTER SHOOTS ANGEL has been hailed by audiences as a rare comedy with a surprisingly heartfelt lesson.
 
Character descriptions:
 
Sandy (late 30s, 40-ish): a tabloid journalist. Cynical, a little jaded, a little self-hating. Sandy had plans, and they did not involve tracking would-be Angel shooters for The Weekly World and Globe.
 
Lenny (30-ish, African American): a photographer. Has even less desire than Sandy to be on this particular assignment.
 
Lester (30s): a tabloid publisher. Fast talking, fast walking, always looking for an angle. Lester knows what his readers want, and Sandy better get it for him – yesterday.
 
Duane (late 20s to early 50s, southern accent): one of the Duck Hunters. Duane’s not the brightest bulb in the chandelier, but he’s trying.
 
Duwell (late 20s to early 50s, Southern accent): the other Duck Hunter, and Duane’s younger brother. Duwell is a little dimmer than Duane, but sweeter with it.
 
Woman (late 20s, Southern accent): sweet, thoughtful, supportive, but some spark and spunk as well.
 
Kansas (teenager, 17. Southern accent): Smart girl with a smart mouth – but likeable.
 
Gator Man/Phil (no age specified): Gator Man.  A strong, physically comic actor who moves well. Fun role without a lot of lines, but lots of presence.
 
The Voice/Loan Officer (40s). Commanding vocal presence; actor is mostly heard, not seen – the inverse of Gator Man.
 
Please bring a headshot and resume if you have them.
 
The audition will be cold readings from the script.
 
The show runs February 24 – March 18 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 4:00pm.
 
Rehearsals will to be scheduled.
