Upcoming Auditions

AUDITIONS!!!

The Winters Theatre Company

is holding auditions for

“Curse You, Jack Dalton!”

An Old- Fashioned Melodrama

By

Wilbur Braun

Auditions will be held on April 1st and 3rd

at 7:30pm

at the Winters Community Center

201 Railroad Av. Winters, Ca. 

Auditions will be by cold readings from the script.

Performance dates are May 16th, 17th, and 18th.

These performances are part of dinner theater, and will be performed in the round.

You’ve met villains in your time, but you’ve never encountered such a sleek, treacherous, deep-dyed villain as Egbert Van Horn.  Or a hero whose bosom is half as manly as Jack Dalton’s bosom.  Or a heroine with such flawless qualities as Bertha Blair possesses.  Add to it Jack’s aristocratic mother who sneers at anyone whose name isn’t on the Social Register; and Anna Alvarado, a Spanish adventuress who is determined to wed Jack.  Included in the action are Richard Blair, Bertha’s courageous brother, and Eloise Dalton, Jack’s tall, plain, and very geeky sister.

Last Chance for “You Can’t Take It With You” and first chance for upcoming auditions!

Last chance for “You Can’t Take It With You” this weekend!
Don’t miss this hilarious, heart-warming show.
Winters Express reviewer Debra DeAngelo writes,
“…each and every actor puts full effort and then some into her or his character to make this large ensemble cast bring the story to life.”
“…there may be no one as familiar and beloved as Germaine Hupe, and her performance as slightly over the hill and drunk-as-a-skunk actress Gay Wellington all by itself is worth the price of a ticket.”

Friday, March 21 and Saturday, March 22 at 8 p.m.
Sunday, March 23 at 2 p.m.
$10 general, $6 seniors and children 12 and under
Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Ave., Winters
Tickets available here or at Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters.

WTC Presents Pulitzer Prize Winning Play

byline Germaine Hupe

The members of the Winters Theatre Company invite their friends and patrons to meet the charming and eccentric Sycamore family, the central characters in ‘You Can’t Take It With You,” the first play of the 2014 season.  The production opens on Friday, March 7, with a Champagne Gala performance and continues for 8 additional presentations, including matinee performances on Sundays, March 9, 16, 23 and evening performances March 8, 14, 15, 21, 22.

The Sycamores have their own way of dealing with the challenges of the Great Depression of the 1930s.  They simply “do their own thing” and assume that everything will come out all right in the end.  Grandpa Sycamore collects stamps, attends commencement exercises, raises pet snakes, and refuses to pay income tax.  Daughter Penny dabbles in the arts as playwright and portrait painter, with little talent in either. Her husband and their boarder make illegal fireworks; granddaughter Essie is a would-be ballerina, and her husband Ed spends his time with his amateur printing press. Unfortunately he prints inflammatory slogans which he doesn’t understand and distributes them in the neighborhood.  These are just a few of the many eccentricities of this thoroughly happy, but very non-traditional family.

Problems arise when granddaughter Alice, the only conventional family member, falls in love with young Tony Kirby, the son of very wealthy, socially prominent parents.  Obviously complications occur and the hilarious situations increase as two very different life styles collide. This play, written by frequent collaborators George M. Kaufman and Moss Hart won the Pulitzer Prize in 1937.  The film version, directed by Frank Capra, was the Academy Award winner as the best film in 1938.  Both versions have stood the test of time and remain popular today.

Plan to attend WTC’s version of this comic family classic. The Opening Gala on Friday, March 7th at 7:30 p.m., features champagne and dessert.  Ticket prices for the Gala are $15.00.

The performance on Saturday, March 8th will be a dinner benefit for the Winters Relay for Life with proceeds donated to the American Cancer Society.  The dinner will feature baked ziti with meatballs (vegetarian option available), green salad, garlic bread and dessert.  A no-host bar with wine, soda and water will be available.  A silent auction will also be held.  Doors will open at 6:00 p.m.  Tickets are $20.00 for adults, $16.00 for seniors and $12.00 for children 12 and under.

Tickets for remaining performances through March 23rd are $10.00 general and $6.00 for seniors and children 12 and under. Fridays and Saturdays, March 14th – 22nd at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday matinees on March 9th, 16th and 23rd at 2:00 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased online here or at Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters.  For more information, call 530-795-4014 or send email to winterstheatre@gmail.com
