PHS Spectacle Theatre announces auditions for the Fall Play: The Play That Goes Wrong! 

The play that goes wrong

 

The Story:  “From Mischief, Broadway masters of comedy, comes the smash hit farce. Welcome to opening night of the Cornley University Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a show—an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines). Nevertheless, the accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences! Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, this Olivier Award–winning comedy is a global phenomenon that’s guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!” (Dramatists Play Service)

Auditions are on Tuesday, September 13.  Information is posted on the Drama website and available in the Black Box Theatre at PHS.  An information meeting will be held on Thursday, September 8 during break in the Black Box Theatre.

About the PHS Drama Program

Whether a student dreams of starring in a show, leading the technical team, or helping manage a theatrical production, the PHS Drama department has a long legacy of introducing students to theatre in a way that builds confidence on and off stage. From Drama I classes to the Advanced Acting and Performance Seminar, students explore all aspects of theatre through hands-on experiences. 

Drama classes are offered during the day so that students are able to participate in theatre productions while also being a member of an athletic team or other after-school organization. Courses offer students a creative outlet while also introducing them to the principles and techniques of playwriting, including plot structure, dramatic action, point of view, mood, character development, setting, written dialogue, and stage directions. In addition to acting courses, PHS also offers a course on Musical Theatre that explores song and dance and provides students with practical steps to pursuing a career. 

Our theatre facilities include the 700+ seat Trego-Biancosino Auditorium and a black box theatre. A full student orchestra accompanies the annual spring musical.
