Upcoming Production: "Rumors"
Charley and Myra Brock are celebrating their 10th anniversary and have invited all their good friends. The night goes awry when the first guests arrive to find Myra missing and that Charley has shot himself in the head (don't worry it’s just a flesh wound). Charley is the deputy mayor of New York City and, hoping to avoid a scandal, his friends go about covering up what they assume to be the truth of the situation. Performance dates are Feb. 19-21 and Feb. 25-27, 2016, with a preview performance on Feb. 17. For more information contact director Samuel Smith at 605.870.0188 or assistant director Kristin Kellar at 712.260.3051. Learn more.
Upcoming Auditions: "The Boys Next Door"
Four mentally handicapped men live under the supervision of an earnest, but increasingly "burned out" young social worker named Jack. Mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these four, where "little things" sometimes become momentous (and often very funny), are moments of great poignancy. Auditions for the comedy/drama "The Boys Next Door" by Tom Griffin will be held Monday, March 7, 2016, 7 p.m. at the Grand Opera House. Performance dates are April 29-May 1 and May 5-7, 2016, with a preview performance on April 27. There are parts for 7 men and 2 women. For more information contact director Alisa DeMers at 605.280.3700 or assistant director Kimberly Zerr. Learn more. Read character profiles.
2016 Children's Theater Production:
"Sideways Stories from Wayside School"
Is your school a little too…normal? Welcome to Wayside. Before you enter Wayside School, you should know it’s a 30-story building with one classroom on each floor. On the 30th floor, everything is sideways, exaggerated and very, very colorful. The zany characters of Wayside School take you on a bizarre classroom journey that promises to thrill and excite the entire family. Pierre Players will present the children's theater production "Sideways Stories from Wayside School" at the Grand Opera House on March 11-13, 2016, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door. (This production is not part of the main stage 2015-2016 season.) Learn more.
