Stagecraft: The Video Game by Wade Bradford

Finally, there’s a video game about life in the theatre! And here’s the best part, the game plays out live, onstage! Katie is in an all-too-familiar predicament. She’s running auditions for the school play and — surprise, surprise! — she needs more guys. Her cousin Matt, who is obsessed with video games, isn’t interested in helping her out. He’s got levels to pass and villains to conquer. She strikes a deal with him. He has to be in the play unless he can beat the new, never-before-seen video game she’s brought along with her. Matt’s up for the challenge and soon finds himself in a wild, virtual world of theatre where he must tackle casting decisions, staging and set building challenges, and ultimately put on a show! It proves to be the most difficult — and rewarding — game he’s ever played.

The Brothers Grimm: Out of Order by Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus

When brothers Jake and Will Grimm can’t agree on a script, they end up in a fight — pages are swapped, plots intermingled... it’s a complete mess! After all, Jake likes blood and guts, and Will likes fluffy bunnies and happy endings. What’s worse is that the principal is coming to see a production of the show in less than half an hour! The intermingled storyline now has Hansel and Jorinda on their way to meet the stage mother and her two evil step daughters, Gretel and Joringel — who’s so happy to be part of the “A” story, he’ll do it in drag! Meanwhile, Rapunzel, who’s been demoted from ingénue to character actress, wants her son, Prince Charming (played by a wise-guy with big-time family connections), to go to the Gingerbread Castle for a ball to meet his true love, the evil witch Cinderella. With name-calling, finger pointing and lots of “I quits,” the entire show collapses just as the principal arrives. But all is not lost! The producer rallies the troops with an incredible cheesy speech, and the cast dishes out the works of the Brothers Grimm in six minutes and 12 seconds. And although they don’t truly succeed, they actually find their own path to happily ever after.

The Rehearsal by Don Zolidis

A young teacher tries to pull off a production of Guys and Dolls, but putting a musical together is never easy, especially with a megalomaniacal stage manager, a lead who’s convinced that Wicked is a much better show, and a girl who is clinically incapable of following directions (she has a doctor’s note to prove it). And to make matters worse, there aren’t nearly enough guys to be the Guys. A hilarious and poignant look behind the scenes of a drama club production filled with -- what else? -- lots of drama.

Take Two Players

7-8 grade (3 weeks)

Daily, 8:30-4:00 (doors open at 8:15 AM) for three weeks starting Jul. 13. Tuition: $375 non-members, $350 members.

The Audition by Don Zolidis

A new theater teacher is bringing a production of A Chorus Line to the high school. Though the hopefuls range from shy to outrageous, and from diva-like to determined, everyone has a chance to step into the spotlight. A hilarious and heartbreaking look at the madness of auditioning and the actors who brave the process for that perfect part.

Break a Leg Players

8-12 grade (3 weeks)

Daily, 8:30-4:00 (doors open at 8:15 AM) for three weeks starting Jul. 13. Tuition: $375 non-members, $350 members.

Zeus on the Loose by Alec Strum

The gods are restless! Zeus has disappeared from Mt. Olympus without a trace. What’s more? Prometheus seems to have busted out of his chains. Hera, worried about what the mischievous fire thief might have done to her husband, calls an emergency family gathering of the rest of the Olympic deities to decide what they should do. What results is hysterical family drama when all the Greek gods and goddesses come together and their outlandish personalities create a true clash of the Titans! It’s full of mythical madness!
