A mysterious old woman lives in the misty mountains, making beautiful quilts for the poor. Meanwhile, the greedy king is desperate to find happiness, assuming it will come from one of the many presents he has demanded from his subjects. When the old woman refuses to give the king a quilt, she starts him on a journey of self-discovery that takes them both on a whimsical adventure. At times mystical, hilarious, gently provocative and touching, this intimate musical has delighted parents and children alike.

========

 Audition for I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change 

When: Sunday, December 7 at 7:00pm in the theatre at 717 Sutter Street, Historic Folsom.

Synopsis: This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as 'the relationship'. Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, "Say, what are you doing Saturday night?"   

lDirector: Connie Mockenhaup

tPerformance Dates: January 17 - February 15, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 4:00pm plus Thursdays, February 5 & 12 at 7:00pm.Rehearsals: To be scheduled.

 Audition for James and the Giant Peach

When: Sunday, December 7 at 7:00pm in our annex at 710 Figueroa Street, Historic Folsom (one block up from Sutter Street between Wool and Riley Streets.

 Synopsis: The story of Roald Dahl's classic tale is told by James himself and the insect characters - Miss Spider, Old-Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybird and Earthworm. The play begins at the end of the story, when James and his friends are living in the giant peach stone in Central Park, New York. A tour guide brings a party of tourists (the audience) to see this major attraction, and James and his friends tell the story of how they came to live in New York. The insects play the other roles, like James's cruel Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, and the epic journey across the Atlantic is acted out with live action, puppetry and storytelling.  

Non-Musical Director:  Allen Schmeltz

 ========

Audition for Noises Off  

When: Sunday, December 14 at 7:00pm in the theatre at 717 Sutter Street, Historic Folsom.
Synopsis: Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearse a flop called Nothing's On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.
Non-Musical
Director: James Gilbreath
Performance Dates: February 21 - April 4 on Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 4:00pm plus Thursdays, March 26 & April 2 at 7:00pm.

Characters: Dotty Otley is an older actress, in her 50s who has put up most of the money for this show. She plays Mrs. Clackett, the housekeeper. 
Llyod Fellows, 40-50, is the director of the "show". He keeps interrupting the action during act one to get things right, and tries to keep the show going during the other acts.

Poppy Taylor is the Stage Manager of the show. She's a sweet girl in her 30s who's been having an affair with Lloyd. 
Belinda Blair is an actress in her 30s who has a habit of finding the gossip backstage. She plays Flavia Brent, the wife of Philip who owns the house... they aren't there though. As they tell the housekeeper, they are still in Spain to avoid the taxman. 
Tim Allgood is the show's gopher. He does everything needed to keep the show going... repairing doors, stepping on stage as one of the characters... whatever he needs to. He is in his 20s. 
Frederick Dallas, 30s, has recently broken up with his wife. He can get very emotional. He plays Philip Brent. 
Garry Lejeune, 30s, has a habit of never finishing a sentence. "It's like, you know, and then... wow, and there you are." He's also having an affair with Dotty. He plays Roger Tramplemain, who shows the house to pontential renters. 
Brooke Ashton, late 20s, is blind as a bat. Which isn't a good thing when her contacts keep popping out. She's also a bit dense. She's been having an affair with Lloyd. She plays Vicki, the sexpot Roger brought to the house in order to have an affair.

Performance Dates: January 10 - January 18 on Saturdays & Sundays at 1:00pm
Rehearsals: Rehearsals will be limited to only 2 or 3 days to stage the show and set lighting.  You will need to rehearse your act on your own and be fully prepared by the show opening date.If you have any questions email aschmeltz@earthlink.net.

Audition for Aristocats

 When: Monday, December 15 at 7:00pm in the theatre at 717 Sutter Street, Historic Folsom.

Synopsis: What's a cat to do? In Disney's The Aristocats KIDS, Madame's jealous butler Edgar cat-naps Duchess and her Aristokittens and abandons them in the Parisian countryside. Luckily, Thomas O'Malley and his rag-tag bunch of alley cats come to their rescue! The show, based on the Disney film, features plenty of exuberant group numbers and a cast that can be expanded by adding additional alley cats to the chorus.

Director: Alison Gilbreath

Performance Dates: March 28 - May 3 on Saturdays & Sundays at 1:00pmRehearsals: To be determined.

Characters:  AMELIA and ABIGAIL Two bold geese sisters who rescue O'Malley from the river and lead the way out of the country back to Paris. It's also important for Amelia and Abby to be able to move convincingly as geese.  DUCHESS Elegant and nurturing mother of the Aristokittens. EDGAR Villainous butler of Madame. He's allergic to the pampered Aristocats and secretly hates tending to them. GENERAL NAPOLEON and PRIVATE LAFAYETTE General Napoleon and Private Lafayette are two country dogs in a comedic power struggle throughout the show. Napoleon is the power-hungry leader and Lafayette the not-so-subservient private.  MADAME Madame is the eccentric and kind human owner of the Aristocats who loves her pets more than anything else in the world.  MARIE Spirited and sassy daughter of Duchess. She is the youngest child and a charmer just like her mother.  ROQUEFORT Roquefort is the naïve yet ultimately brave house mouse who overcomes his fears and saves the Aristokittens from Edgar.  SCAT CAT Jazzy leader of the Alley Cat narrators. He or she is ultra hip and enjoys introducing the Aristocats to jazz music. Scat Cat leads the song "Ev'rybody Wants to Be a Cat," should be a strong singer and smooth mover.  THE ALLEY CATS - HEP, MAD, SLICK and WACKY Small acting parts, but are the glue that holds Disney's THE ARISTOCATS KIDS together. These storytellers set up and comment on the action as well as execute the scene changes.  THOMAS O'MALLEY Charming and charismatic lead alley cat. He lives as a free spirit with no attachments but secretly desires to be part of a family.  TOULOUSE and BERLIOZ Duchess's sons.  VICHY and SOISSE Two privates in the dog army who report to General Napoleon.
