About the show

Arnold Lobel’s treasured characters hop from page to stage in a story of friendship and adventure.

A hit on Broadway, A Year With Frog And Toad was nominated for 3 TONY Awards – including Best Musical. Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books and featuring a hummable score by Robert and Willie Reale, this whimsical show follows two great friends — the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad — through four, fun-filled seasons.

Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in their differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe, all charm, A Year With Frog And Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.

The jazzy, upbeat score of A Year With Frog And Toad bubbles with melody and wit, making it an inventive, exuberant, and enchanting musical for the whole family

The show will be performed in the Gaddy-Goodwin Teaching Theatre.

For more information, see the Frog and Toad show page.

Twin City Stage announces auditions for Swingtime Canteen

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

twin city stageTwin City Stage will hold auditions for the musical comedy, Swingtime Canteen, on Monday, August 31 at 7 pm at the Arts Council Theatre, 610 Coliseum Drive, Winston-Salem.  No appointment is necessary.

It’s 1944 and movie legend Marian Ames and her gal pals from the Hollywood Canteen are heading to London to entertain the troops.  Laughter, tears, air raids, and a celebration of women during the war punctuate this hilarious (and true!) story.  Songs include “I’ll Be Seeing You”, “Sing Sing Sing”, and a fast-paced, 12-song Andrews Sisters medley.  The New York Times called the musical “An exuberant excursion back to the days of World War II! War may be hell, but at Swingtime Canteen it’s still a lot of fun.”

Gene Johnson will direct the production, with music direction by Steve Bradford.  There are roles available for 5 women, ages 20-55.  Actors are asked to prepare a song and bring along sheet music in the correct key.  A cappella and CD sing-alongs are also allowed.  For these auditions, the director would prefer to hear songs from the era (early 1940’s). Rehearsals will begin September 21.

Swingtime Canteen performance dates will be November 13-15 & 19-22, 2015.  All performances will be held at the Arts Council Theatre.  For more information, please call Twin City Stage at (336) 748-0857 x209 or visit the website at www.twincitystage.org.

Description of Play

Tennessee Williams’ classic. Tom, his mother Amanda, and his sister Laura live together in a small apartment. Their father abandoned them years earlier, and Tom is now the family’s breadwinner. He works during the day, but he disappears nightly “to the movies.” Amanda is a loving mother, but her meddling and nagging are hard to live with for Tom who earns the wages that support the entire family. Laura is a frightened and terribly shy girl, with unbelievably weak nerves. She also has a slight limp in one leg, and she seldom leaves the apartment of her own volition. She busies herself caring for her “glass menagerie,” a collection of delicate little glass animals.

RugBugs Information

RugBug Theatre @ HCT is an opportunity for young people to perform for our youngest audiences. RugBug actors’ ages range from 6-17 years old. Actors rehearse, learn lines and blocking, wear costumes and perform on our RugBug stage. There is no cost to the actor. All actors must be at all performances. Auditions are open to everyone! Ethnic diversity is strongly encouraged, and is part of the theatre’s vision. No experience is necessary. The best way to prepare for auditions is to practice reading out loud from any book, speaking loudly and clearly. For auditions, actors will be reading from the script, and doing lots of improvisation (so wear clothes you can roll around in).

Actors need only attend one audition date. All actors must be AT LEAST at first grade reading level. Email pam@hickorytheatre.org for further information.
