What Are You Going to Be? at the Greenbelt Community Center, June 23 & 24

What Are You Going to Be? at the Greenbelt Community Center, June 23 & 24

THE FEDERAL THEATRE PROJECT AND GREENBELT
Featuring an 80th anniversary presentation of Betty Smith’s one-act play:
What Are You Going To Be?

Greenbelt Community Center Auditorium, 15 Crescent Road

Saturday, June 23, 2018, 7:00pm
Sunday, June 24, 2018, 3:00pm

This 80th anniversary multi-media event, hosted by Chris Cherry, will recount the highlights of the WPA’s Federal Theatre Project and its connections with Greenbelt and the town’s first amateur theatrical group, the Greenbelt Players. The program will include a narration and slideshow, song performances by talented Greenbelt vocalists, and a presentation of the one-act Federal Theatre Project play, What Are You Going To Be? The play, recently rediscovered in the FTP archives at the Library Of Congress, was presented by the Greenbelt Players in the Greenbelt Community Center auditorium eighty years ago, on June 23, 1938. The play’s author, Betty Smith, was then a struggling writer, whose employment by the Federal Theater Project enabled her to keep writing. She eventually produced the world-famous novel, A Tree Grows In Brooklyn. The novel’s central characters, Francie Nolan and her family, were sketched by Smith in the one-act play. The Old Greenbelt Theatre will show the film version of A Tree Grows In Brooklyn, on Monday, June 25, giving Greenbelters the opportunity to trace echoes of the play in the film. Following the multi-media presentation and play performance on June 23, a reception will be held to mark the opening of the new permanent exhibit, The Federal Theater Project and Greenbelt.

Location: Greenbelt Community Center Gymnasium 15 Crescent Rd.

Tickets: $5
For tickets, call 301-397-2208 or visit the Community Center business office.

Auditions for Singing in the Rain by 2nd Star Productions, Jun 18-19

Auditions for Singing in the Rain by 2nd Star Productions, Jun 18-19

Auditions for 2nd Star’s ‘Singin’ in the Rain’

Singin’ in the Rain
Directed by Allison Erskine
Music Direction by Sandy Melson Griese
Choreography by Andrew Gordon

2nd Star Productions at the Bowie Playhouse

Audition Dates: Monday, June 18th, 2018 at 7pm and Tuesday, June 19th, 2018 at 7pm. Callbacks will be Wednesday, June 20th.

Performance Dates – September 21 – October 20, 2018.

Come out and audition for 2nd Star’s upcoming production of SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN!

The “Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” is faithfully and lovingly adapted for the stage. Singin’ in the Rain has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline – the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item but, behind the scenes, things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career in “talking pictures” without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her. Filled with every memorable moment from the film and a downpour of unforgettable songs, Singin’ in the Rain is a guaranteed hit!

AUDITION/CALLBACK INFO:
Auditions are Monday, June 18th, and Tuesday, June 19th at 7 PM at the Bowie Playhouse in Bowie, MD (16500 Whitemarsh Park Dr, Bowie, MD). Callbacks will be Wednesday, June 20th at 7 PM (by invitation only.)

Those who wish to audition may attend either the Monday or Tuesday dates. Please keep Wednesday night clear in case you are called back. If you are needed for callbacks, you will be notified by phone and/or email.
