Yea Video!!

With Thanksgiving coming up I ahve more time on my hands to work out this whole video thing. Mr. Rhodes turned the whole thing over to me so wish me luck. Hopefully bellow you will be able to view the fight scene from Jack and the Beanstalk.

We have a lot of folks coming out to audition for Alice in Wonderland!!! It's pretty amazing and we are very excited. I will get some pics of the Makeshift family from Thanksgiving and post them over the weekend.

Other than getting ready for the Alice auditions things are pretty quiet on the Makeshift Theatre front. We are looking for a lighting designer and board op for Alice, so if you are interested please email Mr. Rhodes to set up a meeting.

Hope you enjoyed the video!!

Getting to know you... getting to know all abouot you...

Hey folks,

As you see in the previous post audition time is quickly approaching once again. Our second show of the season is Alice in Wonderland and this one is once again adapted by the one and only Jack Neary.

This show is going to be directed by Anna Wladron who performed last year in Sleeping Beauty and then came on board as Makeshift's new Director of Marketing. Let me tell you she has done a great job since she took the position. Some of you have seen the fancy new season cards that we have been giving out, well you can thank Ms. Waldron for those. Ms. Waldron is also getting married this summer to multi talented Stephen Libby who not only played the story teller in Jack and the Beanstalk, but designed our logo and has done many other projects for us along the way. I asked Ms. Waldron if I could be the ring bearer and she said she would get back to me on that.

I plan on interviewing Ms. Waldron and other members of the Makeshift staff this winter so you can get to know the team that brings you these crazy shows. There is also a lot of news about next year that I want to tell you, but Mr. Rhodes said he would cancel my X-Box live subscription if I let the cat out of the bag to early.... He was pretty compelling.

In the mean time take a look at the audition notice bellow and sign up for an audition!!

See you soon!

Lewis Carroll's whimsical adventure is given a new spin with Jack Neary's witty adaptation. Alice is up to her neck in tardy rabbits, mad-hatters and grinning felines, but will it cost her her head? It will if the Queen of Hearts has anything to say about it! When nothing in Wonderland makes any sense, how will Alice ever find her way home?

female, adult actress who can play younger;
Queen of Hearts:
female, any age, imposing presence, it is always the Queen's way;
King of Hearts:
male, any age, a meek soul next to his wife;
