Theatre Frisco is excited to get our 2020 season started! The turnouts at auditions have been amazing and we appreciate everyone for coming out. Listed below are the remaining shows in our 2020 season. Details regarding the individual auditions are typically posted 6 weeks before the audition date.
Apr 24 – May 10, Barefoot in the Park
By Neil Simon
Directed by Stefany Cambra
Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she’s a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. Their new apartment is her most recent find – too expensive with bad plumbing and in need of a paint job. After a six-day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic, Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does. Paul just doesn’t understand Corie, as she sees it. He’s too staid, too boring, and she just wants him to be a little more spontaneous. Running “barefoot in the park” would be a start…
Auditions February 23 & 24
July 24 – Aug 9, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder
Book and Lyrics by Robert L. Freedman, Music and Lyrics by Steven Lutvak
Directed by Neale Whitmore, Music Direction by M. Shane Hurst
When the low-born Monty Navarro finds out that he’s eighth in line for an earldom in the lofty D’Ysquith family, he figures his chances of outliving his predecessors are slight and sets off down a far more ghoulish path. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and become the ninth Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn’t the only thing on Monty’s mind… Winner of Four Tony Awards!
Auditions May 3 & 4, Callbacks May 7
Audition details coming in March…
Nov 6 – 22, The Seven Year Itch
By George Axelrod
Directed by M. Shane Hurst
Richard Sherman roams restlessly around his empty apartment bemoaning the fact that his wife of seven years, and their son, have just walked out on him. He then suffers a head injury that affects his perspective. He now sees his marriage as wasted time and feels it necessary to exercise his libido as quickly as possible. His temptation leads him to the ‘delectable doll’ that lives in the apartment above him. However, morality and guilt make themselves known, and hilarity ensues. Many will remember the iconic scene that Marilyn Monroe created in the movie that was inspired by this classic play.
Auditions August 2 & 3
Audition details coming in June…
