Fall Play Confirmation for Mary Poppins, Jr.

Hi everyone!

We recognize that everyone has different health and family situations, everyone has different comfort levels with face coverings and distancing. We also know that with our current cast size and blocking, distancing is a significant challenge. Please read over the plan carefully and consider it with your family. Then fill out and submit the form below before Wednesday, August 19 to let us know if you will be participating or not. Please know that if you choose not to participate for any reason, we completely understand. 

Also, as we all are very much aware, any plans we make these days are very much written in pencil. It may be that none of the above is able to happen, but we are moving forward in this direction. As a board, our entire goal has been to give you an opportunity to have the experience of bringing Mary Poppins, Jr. to the stage, and to do it in a way that is safe for you, for you families and for our patrons…it is our hope that it will happen in some form this fall.

February 1, 2020 Workshops

We have two workshops available on February 1, 2020 at the Sunset Theatre. We have a Sound Workshop from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. and the Musical Theatre Master Class from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The Musical Theatre workshop is for actors in middle school, high school and up, and will be limited to the first 25 people to sign up. RhinoLeap’s stars of The Last 5 Years will be leading the workshop, which will focus on singing and dancing, with an emphasis on auditioning.

He recently appeared in the world premiere of Steve Martin’s Bright Star in San Diego and spent two years in the cast of Wicked in Chicago. Ashley has a BFA from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

Our other offering on February 1 is a Sound Workshop. This is for 10 people and you must be at least high school age to participate. The workshop will be held in the Sunset Theatre sound booth and will be led by Mark Dillon.

He has appeared as multi-instrumental musician and producer on 15+ CDs and in 2000 released his first solo album “A Certain Slant of Light” followed by “Apple Barn” in 2005. His stage show is known for its diversity ranging from the country tunes learned in his youth to the 12 string Middle Eastern slide pieces he is known to undertake when the mood seems appropriate.

The cost for either workshop is $25. Spots are on a first-come, first-served basis. Absolutely no spots will be held without payment.
