Now Showing: "Goodbye, My Fancy"
"Goodbye, My Fancy" is a Broadway hit set in 1948 about a liberal Congresswoman who returns to her old school as an honorary visitor. Since her wartime experiences in Europe, Agatha Reed has devoted herself to the task of acquainting people with the horrors of war. That is why she has brought a documentary with her to be shown to the young graduates. The movie is considered harsh and improper by the trustees, so she has a fight on her hands. The 1951 movie starred Joan Crawford. Performance dates are May 5-7 and 11-13, 2017, with a preview performance on May 3. Learn more.
Upcoming Auditions: "The 39 Steps"
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy
spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have “The 39 Steps,” a
fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theater! This
two-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop
laughs, more than 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented
cast of four), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and
some good old-fashioned romance! Pierre Players will hold auditions for "The 39 Steps" on Tuesday, May 30, 2017, 7 p.m., at the Grand Opera House. There are parts for 3 males and 1 female. Show dates are July 21-23 and 27-29, with a preview performance on July 19. For more information contact Director Hannah Carda at 605.222.7723. Learn more.
