Presented by Madison Consolidated High School
Welcome to the 2012/2013 Season
We have some great productions lined up for our audience this year. There are a couple of outstanding Broadway musicals that everyone of all ages will enjoy. And, we have some great comedies that are a little off-beat, fun and just plain hilarious. There are also some special events planned in the spring that will help bring together school and community to help support the arts.
Here are a few lines from our upcoming productions.
Bye Bye Birdie – Broadway Musical
Harry McAfee: The next time I have a daughter, I hope it’s a boy!
Doris McAfee: Tell me, Mrs. Peterson, what does your husband do?
Mae Peterson: I don’t know, he’s dead.
The Drowsy Chaperone – A Musical (within a comedy)
Greg: Still, in the larger sense, in a broader sense, it’s better to have lived than left, right?
Man in Chair: It does what a musical is supposed to do; it takes you to another world. And it gives you a little tune to carry with you in your head.
The Sound of Music – Broadway Musical
Captain von Trapp: You brought music back into the house. I had forgotten.
Maria: I can’t seem to stop singing wherever I am. And what’s worse, I can’t seem to stop saying things – anything and everything I think and feel.
Mother Abbess: Some people would call that honesty.
Maria: Oh, but it’s terrible, Reverend Mother.
Fools – A Comedy by Neil Simon
Snetsky: Have you seen my two dozen sheep?
Tolchinsky: Two dozen sheep?
Snetsky: Yes, there were 14 of them.
Tolchinsky: Excuse me, what is your name, please?
Tolchinsky: And, your first name?
Snetsky: Ah…how soon do you need it?
There’s nothing much better than live theater! We hope you enjoy our new season.
Why Study Theater?
To study theater is to take life’s experiences and reflect them through various characters on stage. Live theater sharpens your perceptions while enhancing your creative capabilities. And, it’s not just for “theater majors” or those students who want to develop a career in acting. Theater is for everyone!
Theater is a great form of expression. You can reach your audience through storytelling, movement, music and expression. It also requires other art forms: technology, lighting, scene design, costume design, make-up artistry and music. Students of theater become an important part of our culture as productions mimic historical and current events.
Theater at MCHS
Our theater students at Madison Consolidated High School have fun. We learn. We play. And, we grow together as we venture upon the challenges of producing, acting and presenting various productions to our peers and the Madison community.
We’re excited about the 2012/2013 theater season at MCHS. We have some fun comedies that will make you laugh out loud and musicals that will leave you humming and singing show tunes well after you leave the theater.
We personally invite you as a MCHS student to join our theater group or audition for one of our great productions this year. We also invite all of our MCHS students, teachers, staff and parents to attend our shows. We’re certain you’ll have a great time.
