Coming soon to the Winters Community Center Theater…the Winters Theatre Company production of “Night of the Anemic Vampire.” This comedy melodrama pokes fun at the myriad novels, television shows, and films which explore the popular myth of vampires, the bat-like creatures who haunt the night in search of the blood of their human victims. “Night of the Anemic Vampire” is the work of area playwright, director, and actor, the late Darrel Akers, and was first performed in Napa in 1977. The play has received rave reviews for its rapid-fire dialogue and zany characterizations. While many vampire plays are truly frightening, “Night of the Anemic Vampire” was written strictly for laughs and comedic effects.
Performance dates are Friday and Saturday evenings, October 24 and 25, and on the following Friday and Saturday evenings, October 31 and November 1. There will also be two Sunday matinee performances at 2pm, on October 26 and November 2. The Friday and Saturday shows start at 8pm ,except for the opening night show on Friday October 24th, which will be the gala opening at 7:30pm. Audience members are encouraged to join in the fun and wear scary costumes, especially to the Halloween performance on October 31. Tickets to see “Night of the Anemic Vampire” are available at: http://www.winterstheatre.org or by calling (530) 795-4014. Please contact WTC at email@example.com for more information.

The Winters Theatre Company
announces Auditions for
“The Best Christmas Pageant Ever”
by Barbara Robinson
Wednesday, September 17th and Thursday, September 18th
7:30 p.m. at the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Avenue. Come to whichever night works best for you!
In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids–probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won’t believe the mayhem – and the fun – when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on! This delightful comedy is adapted from the best-selling Young Adult book.
Several roles are available for children ages 5 through 13 as well as adults. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
Children ages 3 and 4 may audition for the Angel choir or to be a shepherd.
Performances are scheduled on November 21-23, 28-30 (Thanksgiving weekend) and December 5-7.
Rehearsals will take place two to three weeknights per week and on a couple of Saturdays.
“An American classic.” – McCall’s Magazine
“One of the best Christmas stories ever – and certainly one of the funniest.” – The Seattle Times
Please plan to join the Winters Theatre Company for an evening under the stars
with William Shakespeare’s “All’s Well That Ends Well,”
Fridays and Saturdays, August 8 – 16,
at the outdoor Amphitheater
behind the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Ave.
The cast of “All’s Well” features a number of veteran WTC Shakespeare performers including several from last year’s hit production of “As You Like It.” Michelle Vyvlecka (above as Rosalind) appears as Helena; Trent Beeby (Jacques) portrays the King of France; Jim Hewlett (Touchstone) plays the interpreter; Jeremy Nelson (above left as Oliver) portrays Bertram; Anita Ahuja (Audrey) appears as the Countess; Alexis Velasquez (Phoebe) enacts the role of Diana; and Morgan Curtis (Corrin) plays the Widow. The company is pleased to introduce to its ranks Bryan Pro in the role of First Lord Dumain and David Denebeim as the Duke of Florence (above right) and welcomes back Phil Pittman as Parolles, Manny Lanzaro as Second Lord Dumani, Sarah Velasquez as Mariana, and Michael Barbour as Lord Lafeu.
Because The Winters Theatre Company wishes to present “Shakespeare Under the Stars” as family-friendly entertainment, all children under 12 years of age, if accompanied by an adult, will be admitted free. Adult tickets are $5 each and will be available at the door and here.
Please feel free to bring blankets, lawn chairs, and a picnic dinner to enjoy before the show. Refreshments will also be available for sale. For more information call 530-795-4014 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
