City of Angels
Book by Larry Gelbart Music by Cy Coleman Lyrics by David Zippel
CITY OF ANGELS is the rarest of musical comedies; one that is not only loaded with music and written in the contemporary jazz idiom, but also filled with sidesplitting comedy. Set in the glamorous, seductive Hollywood of the 40′s, the world of film studios and flimsy negligees, the show chronicles the misadventures of Stine, a young novelist, attempting a screenplay for movie producer/director, Buddy Fidler. While Fidler professes to be a fan of Stine’s work: “I’ve read a synopsis of every book you’ve ever written,” he assures the author, his gargantuan ego forces Stine to make endless compromises in the script he’s writing. The script is an adaptation of one of Stine’s novels which features his Raymond Chandleresque hero, a private investigator named Stone. Every movie scene that Stine writes is acted out onstage in the black and white film nior world. With music scored remenisint of a 1940's private eye film. It is a tale of decadence and homicide with a liberal sprinkling of femmes fatale.
Location: Kelsey Theatre on the West Windsor campus of Mercer County Community College.
The show will require 18-24 actors, many will play dual roles.
There will be some light choreography.
Directed by John M. Maurer

A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare
MCCC’s very own Theatre Company is holding open auditions for their April production of A Midsummer’s Night Dream at the Kelsey Theatre, on the campus at Mercer County Community College in West Windsor, NJ. All roles are open and we pride ourselves on casting for talent and not seniority.
Performance dates are April 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10. Friday and Saturday night performances are at 8:00 pm and Sunday afternoon performances are at 2:00pm.
ABOUT THE PLAY & OUR PRODUCTION:
Four hopelessly young lovers run off to the enchanted woods after a fight with one of their parents. The young lovers get caught in the crossfire between the King and Queen of the Faeries. This funny, sexy, goofy comedy is full of action: mistaken identity, love potions, mayhem, mystical creatures, ass-headed weavers and nature gone mad. In this production we meld the world of dance and Shakespeare by setting the action in India during the 1920s. This reinvention of this timeless love story blends jazz, Sanskrit Theater and poetry making for one wonderful, magical midsummer night’s dream.
