Experience Pierre Players Community Theatre's new venture, Outside the Box!
Outside the Box is a new series for PPCT to perform scripts not chosen for the main stage, gauge audience feedback on new scripts or those by local playwrights, give more people an opportunity to be involved in our community theater, and broaden our reach into the community. Performances will be done readers theater style and open to the public to attend, with a free-will offering requested to help cover costs.
The first performance will be "Love, Loss, and What I Wore" by Delia & Nora Ephron on Friday, March 24, 2023, at St. Charles Lounge. Come at 7:30 p.m. to enjoy a drink and mingle. The show will start at 8 p.m.
"Love, Loss, and What I Wore" is a play of monologues and ensemble pieces about women, clothes, and memory covering all the important subjects—mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses, and why we only wear black.

Pierre Players Community Theatre will hold open auditions for "Jake's Women," a dramatic comedy by Neil Simon, on Monday, March 6, 2023, 7 p.m. at the Grand Opera House. There are parts for one male and seven females (one character is a 12-year-old girl).
Jake, a novelist who is more successful with fiction than with life, faces a marital crisis by daydreaming about the women in his life. The wildly comic and sometimes moving flashbacks played in his mind are interrupted by visitations from actual females. Jake's women include a revered first wife who was killed years earlier in an accident, his daughter who is recalled as a child but is now a young woman, his boisterous and bossy sister, an opinionated analyst, his current wife who is leaving Jake for another man, and a prospective third wife.
Show dates for "Jake's Women" are April 28-30 and May 4-6, 2023. Learn more about the characters. For more information contact Director Scott Lee. Or visit pierreplayers.com.
