City Park Players 2015 Season
City Park Players, your community theatre, announces its 2015 season and invites community members to be a part of the show, either on stage, backstage, or front of house – there’s a place for you! Here’s what is store for next season (audition times will be posted later):
March 18 – 29, an old favorite:
The Sunshine Boys by Neil Simon
Put two former vaudeville partners together with an anxious nephew, a comeback performance, a nurse who’s a knock-out, and a nurse who might knock you out. Toss in Neil Simon’s trademark one-liners and you have what critics hailed as his “masterpiece” and “a comedy to end all comedies.”
Love Letters by A. R. Gurney
The relationship between the stiff, dutiful, proper Andrew and the lively, unpredictable Melissa is charted over the course of their lifetimes through their letters. Humor, wit, emotion, dramatic surprises, and the grace of a meaningful, loving relationship.
Jenny’s House of Joy by Norm Foster
A typical Western town in 1870’s Oklahoma, with some not-so-typical ladies who tell it how they see it with hilarious directness. Playwright Norm Foster has been called “Canada’s Neil Simon” for his comic wit and in-your-face one-liners.
Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris
A biting, satirical comedy which portrays attitudes towards race, class and real estate with characters showing both honesty and hypocrisy. Same house, Act 1 takes place in 1959, Act 2 takes place in 2009. Fast-paced, sharp dialogue, strong characters, and a thought-provoking story earned this play the Pulitzer in 2011 and a Tony Award in 2012.
The 39 Steps by Patrick Barlow & John Buchan
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have an award-winning whodunit packed with non-stop laughs. A theatrical tour-de-force of inventive stagecraft with over 150 characters racing from scene to scene at a breakneck pace. An unforgettable theatrical experience and audience-pleaser.
