Theatre News and Notes

   Catching up on a few things:

   - I hope you all got to see The Full Monty, which wrapped up on Saturday. ARTS has a long string of excellent shows, and this may have been the best one yet! My lovely wife and I had a great time at the musical - it's a terrific, funny, touching, naughty show with great songs and amazing performances by the perfect cast! If there was a flaw in there, I didn't see it - a terrific orchestra, spot-on-the-money choreography, the tech was glitch-free (the highest compliment I can pay), and the talent was amazing! We laughed, we cried, we laughed even more - a terrific show! Congrats to everyone at ARTS!

- Portsmouth Little Theatre surprised the Tri-State yesterday by announcing auditions on Tuesday, Aug. 30 at 7 p.m. for
 Jekyll & Hyde: The MusicalAuditioners will be provided scenes from the script for a cold reading and should come prepared to sing a song that showcases their vocal range and stylings. Performance Dates are Oct. 21, 22, 28, 29 and 30.

- Auditions wrapped on Sunday for First Stage's production of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, a unique version of the classic story by Mark Twain. First Stage has also just started rehearsals on its second show of the season: School of Rock the Musical: Youth Production (and while I admit prejudice, the cast already sounds terrific)!

   And that's it!
