Auditions for our summer musical Shrek the Musical will be held Saturday and Sunday, April 13 and 14 from 1-3 p.m. each day. We’re looking for a LOT of people, both on stage and behind the scenes! There are non-singing roles available, as well as a lot of singing roles – we need a large chorus for this one! Come join us at the Blue Earth high school – this one’s going to be a lot of fun!

It’s Christmas in the third smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities, including hot competition in the annual lawn display contest. In other news, voracious Joe Bob Lipsey’s production of “A Christmas Carol” is jeopardized by unpaid electric bills. Many colorful Tuna denizens join in the holiday fun. A Tuna Christmas is a total delight for all seasons. Audiences will enjoy a laugh-filled evening!
Read-through for “Joseph” will be on Tuesday, June 5th at 6:30 p.m. in the High School Choir Room. Wednesday and Thursday at 6:30 p.m. will be Chorus Practice (same room), and the Children’s Chorus will be at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday every week (either in the H.S. Choir Room or on stage).
All sorts of news. Auditions were completed for this summer’s musical, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” and for once we had enough men! We still need younger gals and child singers, however. If you’re interested, please let us know!
The Patron Drive is humming right along—Treasurer Laurie reports that the contributions are strong AND the voting for Christmas Dinner Theater shows is running 3-1 for a new show (rather than an encore performance). Tell us in the comments to this post if you would like an encore, or a new performance for Dinner Theater this year! If you have ideas for shows you would like to see, go ahead and add a title. We’d love to hear from you!
Get ready for the Blue Earth Town and Country Players’ 2011 Christmas Dinner Theater production of “A Christmas Story!”
The play is based upon the Warner Bros. motion picture, A Christmas Story, written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown, and Bob Clark and on the book, In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash, by Jean Shepherd. “This play is adapted from the movie, so it contains much of the movie’s humor and charm,” explains Director, Nancy Steinke.
