Your Suggestions for A Season of Plays by Women

For the 2018-19 Theatre Season, we are planning to produce all works written by women or with significant contributions by women.  The goal is to highlight, represent and celebrate the voices of women and the stories they want to tell.  We also intend to showcase a diverse array of women’s backgrounds and perspectives. We also acknowledge that gender is fluid and exists on a spectrum. Therefore we will consider “women” in the most open sense possible.

WE WANT YOUR SUGGESTIONS

Some Considerations:

  • Casting:  Due to demands of enrollment and efficiency, the cast must have roles for at least 10 actors.
  • Technical demands of the set and other special effects must be achievable on a limited budget.
  • Although we have not determined if we have the resources to produce a musical next season, we would love to hear your suggestions.

Please use the form below to submit your thoughts.  Feel free to include any or all of the following Information in your message:

  • Playwright’s Name
  • Specific plays by the playwright.
  • Thoughts on why this playwright or play is compelling for you and or our community.

Peter and the Starcatcher Cast

To All who auditioned, thank you for your time and commitment.  It’s a blessing to have such an abundance of skilled and talented actors to choose from. This has been one of the hardest casting situations for me.

Cast, first rehearsal will be Monday, January 29th at 6:30 PM on the Howard Brubeck Stage.  Please arrive on time (10 minutes early if possible) dressed for movement and thoroughly prepared for the adventure of this show.  During the break you should read the play several times and begin working the script and memorizing lines.  I will send an email with access to the script.

We have 4 weeks of rehearsal before tech. This is one week shorter than I thought.  Somehow, I miscalculated when I looked at the production schedule.  To ensure that we have the most amazing show possible, I’m considering adding some rehearsal. I’d like to do three sessions during the week of January 22, devoted primarily to physical and vocal training to prepare for the shows.  Because classes are not in session yet, it might be possible to meet in the daytime instead of night.

Please send me an email confirming that you accept your role and detailing your availablilty during the week of January 22.  I’m thrilled and excited for our work on this magical adventure story. mmufson@palomar.edu

Aldous Huxley set his remarkable novel 600 years in the future, but today, just 85 years after its publication, Huxley’s Brave New World seems all too familiar and it will be here sooner than you think.  Starting Friday, September 29th, Brave New World will come alive in our intimate and immersive Studio Theatre for seven performances.

Welcome to the year A.F. (After Ford) 632, the ultimate world of mass distraction. Perpetual youth, sexual liberation, the Soma holiday, media-state-entertainment conditioning and genetic engineering create a world of perfect contentment; unless you happen to be different. This immersive mixed-media theatre experience will take you on an unforgettable trip into Huxley’s strange but familiar future.
