PSA from Theatre West Summer Repertory
Theatre West will present four mainstage shows this summer. Opening the 2023 season, The Marvelous Wonderettes will open June 1 in the Judy Chaloupka Theatre at WNCC. The Marvelous Wonderettes takes us back down memory lane to the Springfield High School prom in 1958. Meet The Wonderettes: four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts.
Theatre West will present Neil Simon’s classic comedy, The Odd Couple, in conjunction with the newer version of the play, The Odd Couple Female Version. The original version depicts the lives of two very different men thrown together at a turning point in their lives. The female version presents Unger and Madison at it again–Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is! The shows open June 22 and run through July 1st.
Guys and Dolls In Concert will open July 13th. Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway. Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. This concert version as presented this year at Washington’s Kennedy Center, spotlights Frank Loesser’s brassy, immortal score that makes Guys and Dolls a crowd pleaser.
Auditions for these four shows will be held in the Judy Chaloupka Theater on Saturday, March 25 at 1:00. Registration for the auditions will start at noon in the lobby of the theater on that day.
Rounding out the 2023 season, TOFY, Theatre West’s summer camp for youth, will present Disney’s Moana Jr. on July 22 & 23. Three showings will be available for this a 60-minute musical adaptation of the 2016 Disney animated film. Information on the TOFY camp and auditions for the show, to be held on April 14th, will be available on the Theatre West website.
