Auditions for Teen Theatre’s GUYS AND DOLLS May 7, 8


Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, GUYS AND DOLLS is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. GUYS AND DOLLS takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.

Bellevue Society for the Arts’ Teen Theatre announces auditions for their 2018 musical, GUYS AND DOLLS, Monday and Tuesday, May 7 and 8 at 7 p.m. at 205 Maple Street, Bellevue.

New Children’s Theatre director named

received_10155304552871845.jpegBellevue Society for the Arts welcomes Bellevue’s own Juliet Russell as the director of our Children’s Theatre program for 2018.

Juliet will be directing the comedy, AESOP, COME BACK! by Joshua Mikel.

2015AESOPCO-P1-300.jpgIn an attempt to prove that Aesop was history’s greatest fabulist, a group of storytellers cracks the spine of a massive edition of Aesop’s Fables, releasing the old man’s most memorable characters into the theater. The Tortoise, the Hare, the Hart, the Vines, the Simpletons, the Fox, the Lion, the Mouse, and a certain golden egg-laying Goose all take the stage, delightfully re-imagined; the Tellers alternate between narrating and joining the action. Bristling with comic energy, this play caters to a large cast and is perfect for audiences of all ages.

Sponsored by Bellevue Kiwanis, and Bellevue Lions Club, open auditions will be held June 18 and 19. Performances will be in August.

AESOP, COME BACK! is presented by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.

Bellevue Society for the Arts’ Children’s Theatre is open to all children ages 7–12 in any school system.
