Performance​ ​Dates:​ May 5-19, 2018 (weekends only)

SUMMARY​ ​OF​ ​SHOW: Skeptical novelist Charles Condomine invites self-proclaimed medium Madame Arcati to his home for a séance, hoping to gather material for a new book. When the hapless psychic accidentally summons the spirit of Condomine’s late wife, Elvira, his home and life are quickly turned into shambles as his wife’s ghost torments both himself and his new bride, Ruth.

AUDITOR(S):​ Jenny Martin (Director)

CHARACTERS/CASTING​ ​NEEDS: 2 men, 5 women

Charles​ ​Condomine:​ ​ ​In his forties, Charles is an intelligent and urbane English novelist. Charles is the husband of Ruth Condomine and deceased first wife, Elvira. Charles is bright, sophisticated, articulate, and debonair but somewhat at the mercy of his wives, past and present. His interest in spiritualism as a subject for a novel leads Charles to ask Madame Arcati to dinner and a seance. He is skeptical but becomes a believe when the ghost of his first wife appears – and stays.

Ruth​ ​Condomine:​ ​A smart looking woman in her mid-thirties, Ruth is the wife of Charles. She is a bit jealous of Charles’s relationship with his first wife. Like her husband, Ruth is witty and sophisticated, and she is quite the society matron. Ruth is a bit stuffy and a little predictable. She is convinced that Charles has lost his mind when Elvira appears. Ruth acts as a concerned wife, trying to restore Charles to normalcy.

Dr.​ ​Bradman:​ ​A pleasant-looking middle-aged man, Dr. Bradman is a friend of the Condomines who is invited to dinner and the seance. He is entirely skeptical of anything to do with the occult but tries his utmost to go along with the proceedings for the sake of Charles’ research.

Mrs.​ ​Bradman:​ ​The wife of Dr. Bradman, Mrs. Bradman is middle-aged and a bit faded. Simple and naive, she is quite excited about being in the presence of the medium, whom she finds fascinating. Madame​ ​Arcati:​ ​A middle-aged spiritualist, Madame Arcati is a striking woman. She is not too extravagant but has a definite bias toward the barbaric. Elderly but spry, Madame Arcati comes into the play talking to an eight-year-old contact on the other side. She truly is in contact with the other world and inadvertently is the “medium” through which Elvira is called back to this one. She is eccentric, effusive and boisterous.

Elvira:​ ​Charles Condomine’s deceased first wife, Elvira returns as a ghost with a goal. In the process, she makes Charles’s and Ruth’s lives very complicated. Only Charles can see or hear her. In life, Elvira was spirited, outgoing, wild, and carefree. In death, she is no different; she socializes with Genghis Khan. She does love Charles, if somewhat casually, and is jealous of Ruth.

Edith:​ The Condomine’s maid, Edith is always in a hurry. She is nervous and tears around at breakneck speed trying to do things right and make a good impression.

Performance​ ​Dates:​ July 28-August 11, 2018 (weekends only)

SUMMARY​ ​OF​ ​SHOW: A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

AUDITOR(S):​ Dwight Chiles (Director); Sarah Fowler (Music Director); Tina Pisano-Foor (choreographer)

CHARACTERS/CASTING​ ​NEEDS: 5 men, 5 women

Jesus(male) Must be the most charismatic individual in the cast. High energy, charming, funny, gentle but with strength. He is the sort of person others instinctively follow.

John​ ​the​ ​Baptist/Judas​ ​(male) He has attributes of both Biblical figures: He is both Jesus’ lieutenant and most ardent disciple and the doubter who begins to question and rebel. Like Jesus, he is also charismatic, but in more of an overt revolutionary way. Usually played by someone handsome and masculine, with an undertone of sexuality. He is the most “serious” and intellectual of the group, though as with all the actors, he must still possess a good sense of physical comedy.

Nick​ (male) Very high energy. Impish and playful. In the original, he played several musical instruments, including concertina, recorder and guitar.

Telly​ ​(male) Not the brightest in the bunch, he is a little slow on the uptake. But there is a great sweetness and innocence about him. Because he sings “All Good Gifts” he must be a very good singer.

George​ (male) The comedian, the class clown. The guy who can do a hundred voices and imitations.

Anna​ ​Maria​ (female) A bit of a tomboy, but basically open and sweet. Perhaps the youngest of the group. She is the first of the group to commit to following Jesus in the song “Day by Day.”

Lindsay​ (female) The confident one, the show-off. The first one to volunteer, sometimes she jumps in before she really understands what’s going on.

Uzo​ (female) The shy one. Sometimes a little slow to get things, but when she does, she commits all the way. Has an “earth mother” kind of warmth to her.

Morgan​ (female) Sassy and slightly cynical, the most urban of the group. Also the “sexy” one, but her sexiness contains a large element of put-on, in the manner of Mae West or Madonna (who in fact once played this role).

Celisse​ (female) The female equivalent of the class clown. Goofy and a cut-up. In the 2012 Broadway revival, she played several instruments, including conga, ukulele and guitar.Dial M Slide with credit

Now Wendice must frantically scheme to outwit the police and avoid having his plot detected.

CHARACTERS/CASTING​ ​NEEDS: 5 men, 1 woman

Captain​ ​Lesgate:​ ​An old schoolmate of Tony’s and a convicted criminal, Lesgate is now being blackmailed by Tony into murdering Margot. He seems willing to do anything for money.

Get the Hook Improv Comedy Troupe Performing this Weekend!

Olivia Hughes (pictured: right) is a Get the Hook troupe member and she is getting excited about this weekend’s performance!

How do you use Improv in your everyday life?

“I use it in awkward situations. I’m able to think more quickly. I enjoy coming [to practice] every Tuesday, and putting everything else away, and just be funny.”

 

How do you Improvise now compared to how you used to?

“I’m a lot more confident. It’s become easier to drive a scene. Like, if it’s dying, I’m not afraid that all my ideas are going to be stupid because I have more confidence in my abilities. You just get used to it. Some scenes aren’t going to be funny, but after so many practices and performances, you just say ‘It’s okay if a scene doesn’t get a big laugh because you can just do another one, and the audience will forget about it.”

 

What has been your favorite part about being a member of Get the Hook?

“I love performing. I love acting, theatre, singing, and dance because it’s a safe-haven. When I come [to practice], I forget about school and stress. I like improv because it’s a place to laugh and be funny. It’s also been a confidence booster. I feel like Improv has helped me in theatre, and I want to keep doing theatre in college, so I feel like I’m going to be glad that I did it during my high school career. And I get to see my friends when I come to practices, so that’s pretty cool.”

 

What do you enjoy most about performing improv?

“Getting laughs. It feels good after practicing so much to have an audience.”

 

Why should people come to the Get the Hook performances, Dec 1 – 3?

“Because we are hilarious! It’s convenient because you don’t have to drive all the way to Asheville to see a comedy show that might not be as funny as ours. Improv is fun, comedy is fun. And you can interact with us while we are performing. You get to have that human interaction during the show, instead of just going to a movie or something. Plus we are pretty good.”

 

How would you describe the show to someone who has never seen a Get the Hook show?

“Energetic! We do have to involve the audience some because we have to ask for suggestions, so you guys to think quickly too and help us out. It’s just a fun night overall. I love watching different troupes perform because it’s so different from seeing any other kind of performance. Comedy is completely different from anything you will ever experience. So you should give it a chance and come see us!”

Yes, there are Cookies…

but there’s no cookie-cutter Christmas in Burnsville! No box-store-shopping or bah-humbugs here.

Everything that’s right about the Christmas season is happening in Burnsville this weekend. This time of year should be less about things and more about about people and experiences We’ve got Christmas trees, art, parades, good food, and laughter guaranteed!

First, the FIRS. Fraser Firs, that is. There’s nothing better than choosing and finding the right Christmas tree. So, why not do that here in Mitchell or Yancey Counties, right where the trees are grown? Go home with your beauty (safely) strapped to the roof of your car.

christmas-1018112_960_720

Secondly, it’s the Toe River Arts‘ Holiday Studio Tour.  It’s going on Friday through Sunday 10am to 5pm… Think of this as a combination scavenger hunt, curated museum tour, and unique gift-buying smorgasbord.  There is nothing more Made-in-America or supportive of our rural community and small businesses than buying art!

20171127_133931

Thirdly, The Burnsville Christmas Parade at 3pm sponsored by the Yancey Chamber of Commerce!  (Visit their site or ExploreBurnsville.com to find places to stay and eat.)

3180596.jpg

Yes, you will need to eat while you were here and there are many good places (see links above), but of particular note, Snap Dragon‘s burger just got some recognition as one of the best in the state!20819726_868858253267652_7033221320195646275_o-700x500

OK.  Now we’re distracting ourselves….

What else is going on… OH YES! We promised laughter.  Well, here you go! Our improv  comedy troup is going to do their thing… which means a good time for you.

23632765_720244578186750_205684661894634278_o

Or maybe we’ll see you later in December…

Get the Hook about the New South Comedy Festival

A few weeks ago Parkway Playhouse’s very own Get the Hook Improv Comedy Troupe traveled to the New South Comedy Festival in Greenville, SC. While there, the troupe members attended workshops and even got the opportunity to perform!

We were given the privilege to interview Get the Hook troupe member, Jack Weinmeister, about his time at the festival, and this is what he had to say about his experience at the NSCF.

What did you think of the New South Comedy Festival (NSCF)?

“It was fun. There were a lot of good opportunities to learn how we can make other people laugh without trying so hard to get those definite punch lines. There are these subtle things that we can do to make an awkward scene funny, not just something random, but make [the scene] have an actual purpose.”

 

What did you enjoy about the workshops that were provided at the NSCF?

“My favorite workshop was Let It Be by Lewis Kornfield. He taught us how to stop for a moment after saying something and do these little things to make the scene funny. That’s what I really took from him, less it more. Normally, with comedy, you try to be really big, really loud, or really funny, but Lewis taught us about having those honest moments. Moments where you are in a scene with one other person, having a conversation, then based on what the other person is saying, your reaction doesn’t have to be huge, but it can still be funny.”

 

What about Megan Grey’s workshop?

“In her workshop we practiced continuing with the energy in a scene instead of taking another path or just changing the scene completely. Basically keeping with the same scene, and keeping the same feeling throughout.”

 

What was your favorite exercise?

“[Lewis] had two people get up. One person would make a statement, and the other would have to react to it three different ways. Mine was ‘You just got accepted to Columbia University, congratulations’ and the person opposite of me had to act happy about it, then sad, then angry. We were able to use the same scene to make different feelings. That was my favorite thing, seeing those different reactions that people can take in a scene.”

 

What did Get the Hook perform while at the NSCF?

“We played the game Growing and Shrinking, which is where two people start a scene, then it will grow as other people come in, then shrink back down to the two original actors. We had 25 minutes to do that, and we used up exactly 25 minutes. It was perfect!”

 

What did you enjoy most about the Get the Hook performance?

“Our performance was very fun. In the past we have had performances we have gotten a few laugh out of the audience, people felt awkward at some points, and those were good times, but that performance at the festival was one of the funniest we have ever done. We got a lot of laughs and we were able to do a lot of call-backs, meaning that we were able to bring back jokes that we used in the beginning of the performance.”

 

What was your favorite part about the NSCF?

“Getting to see mock turtle soup from Clemson and being able to see people of all ages perform Improv.”

The cultural touchstone that is THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) was born when three inspired, charismatic comics, having honed their pass-the-hat act at Renaissance fairs, premiered their preposterous masterwork at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1987. It quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, earning the title of London’s longest-running comedy after a decade at the Criterion Theatre. Featured are all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays, meant to be performed in 97 minutes, by three actors. Fast paced, witty, and physical, it’s full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.

So there you have it! Aren’t you excited, too? Honestly, we’re going to have so much fun together next year we’re already buzzing about it.
