Upcoming Shows

November 20 & 21, 2021

Auditions for MCP's
 "The 39 Steps"
in November!

AUDITIONS for The 39 Steps
Sat/Sun, Nov. 20 & 21, 2021
3:00 to 5:30 PM at the Ilsley Library Conference Room
Middlebury, Vermont
(Enter lower level from back garden,

please come to only one audition day.)

The Middlebury Community Players are pleased to announce auditions for a February production of  Patrick Barlows’s adaptation of The 39 Steps. The play will be directed by Dr. Gary Gillen, who directed MCP's HILARIOUS production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) in fall 2019. In The 39 Steps, four actors play all roles to create the themes and characters of Alfred Hitchcock’s ground-breaking spy masterpiece movie of 1935. It is both a spoof and homage to all the elements of spy movies that would become cliches used by others for decades. Fast-paced and fun!

Casting Four Actors

● Male lead playing Richard Hannay (British) - Ordinary man who becomes a spy

● Female lead playing Annabella Schmidt (German), Pamela (British), Margaret (Scottish)

● Clown 1 & Clown 2  either gender playing the other 30+ parts
 

Rehearsals begin on December 12 with dates to be determined, but we anticipate three days a week held on weekday evenings (except for Mondays and Tuesdays) and weekends.

Performances will be February 11-13, 2022.


COVID Protocols
All those attending auditions will be required to provide a negative Covid test within a few days of auditions plus proof of vaccination. Participants will remain masked and maintain safe distancing. These protocols will be in effect throughout rehearsals.

Tuck Everlasting The Musical

Book by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle
Music by Chris Miller
Lyrics by Nathan Tysen
Based on the novel Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

Tuck Everlasting is a musical based on the 1975 American children’s novel Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. Adapted for the stage by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle, it features a soaring score from Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen.

Eleven-year-old Winnie Foster yearns for a life of adventure beyond her white picket fence, but not until she becomes unexpectedly entwined with the Tuck Family does she get more than she could have imagined. When Winnie learns of the magic behind the Tucks’ unending youth, she must fight to protect their secret from those who would do anything for a chance at eternal life. As her adventure unfolds, Winnie faces an extraordinary choice: Return to her life or continue on with the Tucks on their infinite journey.

Director: Kristen Ginsburg
Music Director: Jennifer Allred
Choreographer: Kendra Gratton
Stage Manager: Dora Greven
Co-Producers: Kate Tilton & Mary Longey

Tuck Everlasting is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
