A COMEDY OF TENORS
Opening this Saturday!
Comedy of Tenors by Ken Ludwig brings its comedic chaos to Sutter Street Theatre
Directed by CONRAD CECIL
 
One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong? It’s 1930s Paris and the stage is set for the concert of the century – as long as producer Henry Saunders can keep Italian superstar Tito Merelli and his hot-blooded wife, Maira, from causing runaway chaos. Prepare for an uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, bedroom hijinks, and madcap delight.
 
The comedy is directed by Conrad Cecil who has a master’s degree in Directing from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and King’s College, London, and is a graduate of East 15 Acting School, London.
 
He has performed with the National Theatre Workshop (London), at the Avignon Festival (France) and at The Actors Company (LA) in Shirley Lauro’s The Radiant , directed by Jane Edwina Seymour. In Paris, France, he collaborated with filmmaker Werner Schroeter to stage Madame fait ce qu’elle dit by Roland Dubillard at the Théâtre du Rond-Point, Champs-Elysees, Paris.
 
Comedy of Tenors stars Shane Burrows, Mike Jimena, Rich Kirlin and Janine La Forge with a supporting cast of Ren Elser, Connie Mockenhaupt and Kevin Nolan.
 
Rated PG
 
Comedy of Tenors plays November 9 through December 1 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 4:00pm.
 
Tickets are General $24, Seniors $21, Students with ID $18, Children 12 and under $15. For online reservations go to www.SutterStreetTheatre.com or call (916) 353-1001.

13 The Musical Brings a Fun Coming-of-Age Musical to the Sutter Street Stage
Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
Book by Dan Elish and Robert Horn
Directed by Allen Schmeltz
Musical Direction by Christine Irish
Choreography by Dian Hoel
 
Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe. These are the labels that can last a lifetime. With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, (Parade, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County) 13 is a musical about fitting in – and standing out!

Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents divorce. Surrounded by an array of simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain… or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!?

13 The Musical plays through November 24, 2019 on Sat. and Sun. at 1:00pm (No Performance on November 3)

Rated: PG

Tickets are: General $18, Seniors $16, Students with ID $15, Children 12 and under $13. For online reservations go to www.SutterStreetTheatre.com or call (916) 353-1001.

Casting: We are looking for 11 versatile actors in their late teens to 40s to play multiple roles. (5M/5W 1 either M/F) All roles are large roles – it is truly an ensemble cast.
 
Puffs! (not a musical) is an adult parody spanning 7 years (in 90ish minutes) at a certain school that teaches magic.
 
Synopsis: The New York Times proclaims PUFFS, “A FAST-PACED ROMP through the ‘Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic.’ For POTTERphiliacs who grew up alongside Potter and are eager to revisit that world, ‘PUFFS’ exudes a jovial, winking fondness for all things Harry!” This clever and inventive play “never goes more than a minute without a laugh” (Nerdist) giving you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three potential heroes just trying to make it through a magic school that proves to be very dangerous for children. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders with a thing for badgers “who are so lovable and relatable, you’ll leave the theater wishing they were in the stories all along” (Hollywood Life). Their “hilariously heartfelt!” (Metro) and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be
