MASTER CLASS  by Terrence McNally

directed by Diane Malone

September 11- October 4, 2015

Anna Gangai returns to the role of Maria Callas in this Tony-Award winning play.

Based on a series of master classes the opera diva gave at Julliard, Callas berates

her students as much as she encourages them, reflecting on a lifetime of triumphs

and disappointments and recalls her relationship with shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis.

MEDEA  by Euripides
directed by Mark Stringham

November 6-29, 2015

Medea and her two children wait in exile for her heroic husband to secure a place for them,

only to find out that he has abandoned them for the King's daughter.

With her imminent banishment, divorcement from her only love,

and separation from her two children drawing nigh, Medea has twenty-four hours

to exact revenge and reclaim the only thing she has left: her life.

Auditions will be held on September 13-14 from 7-10 pm with callbacks on the 21st from 7-10 pm.

Contact Florence at (210) 589-8450 for more details.

 

THE SEAGULL  by Anton Chekhov
directed by Allan S. Ross

February 12- March 6, 2016

Amid the weariness of life in the country, the famous actress Arkadina presides over a household

riven with desperate love, dreams of success, and dread of failure. It is her son, Konstantin,

who one day shoots a seagull; it is the novelist Trigorin who will one day write the story of the seagull so casually killed;

but it is Nina, the seagull herself, whose life to come will rewrite the story.

 

BORN YESTERDAY  by Garson Kanin
directed by Matthew Byron Cassi

April 29- May 22, 2016

In this classic American comedy, an uncouth, corrupt junk dealer, Harry Brock, brings his showgirl mistress Billie Dawn

with him to Washington, D.C. When Billie's ignorance becomes a liability to Brock's business dealings,

he hires a journalist, Paul Verrall, to educate his girlfriend. In the process of learning,

Billie Dawn realizes how corrupt Harry is and begins interfering with his plans to bribe a Congressman.
