THEATRE PRODUCTION WORKSHOP   (note: this is not a musical)

That despicable “mastermind,” Dr. Evil, is once again up to no good in this hilarious, all-ages comedy written to be performed entirely on a video conferencing app! At the monthly online meeting of the Council of Evil, the bumbling ne’er-do-well reveals his newest plans for world domination...trained pigeons...with lasers! Having heard his hair-brained schemes before, Countess Gothma, Lord Warhammer, Archduchess Arsenica, and Prince Vladi practically laugh him out of the Zoom room! Undeterred, Dr. Evil unleashes his army of pigeons upon a rainy but repellent Seattle and a harsh, brash New Jersey, only to have his plans thwarted by unexpected events. About to lose hope, the doc’s assistant and BFF, Shirley, encourages him to keep on trying. But when the doctor sends his battalions to Garvin County, Oklahoma, he may finally have met his match in Josephine Esoteric and her army of tigers with jetpacks!

THEATRE PRODUCTION WORKSHOP   (note: this is not a musical)

In this kooky kangaroo court, it’s never been more crazy (or hysterical)! You’ll love the cast of outlandish characters in this funny, farcical court case. 

Casey Licit is on a cross-country road trip when she’s apprehended and held for trial in a town appropriately named Berserksville. Charged with an outrageous triple crime, Casey maintains her innocence. But as the trial begins, our level-headed defendant realizes her hapless defense attorney is an ineffective dolt, and the prosecution effectively uses silly, childish distractions to win the case, including bribing Judge Falter and witnesses with candy and leading the courtroom in the Macarena! The parade of witnesses offers testimony that’s nothing more than twisted fibs, boastful self-promotion, and gabby gossip.

Students will work on acting, character development, memorization, and more as they rehearse for their big (pre-record) performance! Recordings will be done in class.
