2014-2015 Season

30 Jun

We are looking forward to our 2014-2015 season. Our fall production will be “The Wizard of Oz” and our spring production is “Writer’s Block”. We are waiting to hear from the auditorium manager if we are approved for our requested performance dates. But, we are looking for an early November weekend for “The Wizard of Oz” and a late March or early April performance for “Writer’s Block”

We expect to cast 30 actors for “The Wizard of Oz” and 20 acting buddies.

Applications will be sent out on July 1, 2014. There will also be applications for actors and buddies on this blog, too. If you have an email in our files or have given us your home address, we will send you an application. The deadline for actor applications is Aug. 15, 2014 so don’t delay when you get your mail. There will also be applications at River Valley Special Recreations for actors and buddies.

If you have a technical theater background and would like to help out, send me an email message at easystreettheater@yahoo.com

Calling All Buddies

9 Aug

Easy Street is putting together our 2013-2014 season and looking for buddies to help our actors.  “Hat’s Off to the Holidays” will be presented in early November with rehearsals beginning early in Sept.  We are hoping for April dates for our Spring Show with rehearsals beginning late in Feb.

Buddies must be at least 16 years old with a solid sense of responsibility and discipline.  All buddies must attend a seminar called Protecting Our Participants (POP) immediately after our first rehearsal.  The seminar is approximately one hour long.

Rehearsals will be scheduled for Tuesdays and/or Thursday evenings from 5:30 -7:30 p.m.

Please call 815-697-2665 (Monica), 815-768-5306 (Andi), or 815-955-6753 (Dorene) to sign up or ask questions.

Getting Ready for the 2013-2014 Season

8 Aug

Easy Street Theater for Actors with Special Abilities is getting ready for the 2013-2014 performance season. We have a Holiday program called “Hats Off to the Holidays” coming early in November. We’ll sing and dance to songs about Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanakkuh, and New Years. And, of course, a lot of “hats” may be involved in the fun on the stage.  We are hoping for an April performance for our Spring Show. We need 20 actors for this show.

Actors may make their choice for one of the two shows.  We’ll do our best to put you in the show of your choice.

All actors MUST send the application and their $20 membership fee to 140 Mansfield Court, Chebanse, IL  60922 or send/drop off the application to RVSRA, 1335 E. Broadway, Bradley, IL.  60915 on or before Sept. 1st, 2013 to be put on the cast list for either of the shows.   A phone call or a Facebook notice is not valid….sorry.
