Players de Noc has an exciting 2017/18 season ahead with two musicals and two thought-provoking plays and a fifth show outside of the regular season.
Wall:A Product of Resourcefulness and Efficiency in Americ’s Never-Ending Battle for Absolute Supremacy and General All-Around Kick-Assedness is a play written by local playwright J.R. Spaulding Jr. He is directing his own play. It runs October 6-14 at the Bonifas Theater.
All Mr. Rondo and his assistant, Ms. Ricki, want is to build a wall of grandiloquent scale and epic importance as a symbol to provide Americans purpose in their otherwise meaningless and mundane lives. But when a government agent from the Dept. of Redundancy, Waste, and Red Tape shuts down the project with a cease and desist order their noble task becomes more difficultized, leaving them to decide if the completion of this American Dream is really worth bringing the wrath of The Man down on them.
The Marvelous Wonderette:Winter Wonderettes runs December 8-16. It is directed by Lynn Soderberg with musical direction by Travis Dubord.
The Wonderettes are back! This seasonal celebration finds the girls entertaining at the annual Harper’s Hardware Holiday Party. When Santa turns up missing, the girls use their talent and creative ingenuity to save the holiday party! Featuring great ‘60s versions of holiday classics such as “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Run, Rudolph, Run,” and “Winter Wonderland,” the result is, of course, marvelous! This energetic and glittering holiday package is guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages.
The musical Curtins runs March 2-10. It is directed by Jeff Woerpel with musical direction by Tom Knoll.
It’s the brassy, bright, and promising year of 1959. Boston’s Colonial Theatre is host to the opening night performance of a new musical. When the leading lady mysteriously dies on stage the entire cast and crew are suspects. Enter a local detective, who just happens to be a musical theatre fan!
Steve O’Driscoll is directing Dinner With Friends April 27-29.
Karen and Gabe have been friends with Beth and Tom for over a decade, since introducing the two at their summer house on Martha’s Vineyard. During what was to be a normal dinner with friends, Beth, attending alone, announces their breakup. This sends Tom into a fury since he was unable to defend himself, despite being the one that left for another woman. The twists and turns from the past, present, and five months later leave Karen and Gabe as well as the audience questioning their own situation.
