Now Playing Onstage in Los Angeles - Week of 11/04/2012 SHOUT!! THE MOD MUSICAL
CASTILLEJA SCHOOL
11/8-11/10/2012
SHOUT! is the mod musical magazine that brings back the beautiful birds and smashing sounds that made England swing in the 60's. Created by Phillip George and David Lowenstein, SHOUT! features terrific new arrangements of such classic tunes as "To Sir With Love," "Downtown," "Son of a Preacher Man," and "Goldfinger."SHOUT! travels in time from 1960 to 1970 chronicling the dawning liberation of women. Just as Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, and Cilla Black, were independent women with major careers, English and American women were redefining themselves in the face of changing attitudes about gender. SHOUT! (and its all-female cast) reflects that through the unforgettable music of the time. With a shimmy and shake, the songs are tied together by hilarious sound bites from the period -- from 60's advertisements to letters answered by an advice columnist who thinks every problem can be solved with a "fetching new hair style and a new shade of lipstick."The songs in this delightful musical resonate with a timeless quality which appeals to every generation. A wonderful choice to showcase strong, female talent at any community theatre, high school, or college.Please note that original NY and touring sets, costumes and more for this title are available on MTI ShowSpace here. A presenters pack, with all original artwork, newspaper, magazine ads, programs, posters, merchandise and more is available to all presenters of SHOUT!

Contra Costa Musical Theatre
10/12-11/10/2012
The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. This version of JOSEPH?DREAMCOAT features extended songs and dances. The Megamix is available as a separate rental with this version.

"People's destinies are so different. Some people drag along, unnoticed and boring—they're all alike, and they're all unhappy. Then there are others, they are one in a million. They are happy —." On a 19th-century RussIan Lakeside estate, the magic of summer evokes passion in three generations of self-doubting artists. Masha pines for the young writer Kostya, but Kostya yearns for the aspiring actress Nina, who is infatuated with the older novelist, Trigorin. Trigorin "loves" both Nina and theater diva, Irina. Irina decidedly loves herself. And everyone aches for recognition, as artists and as human beings. Written in 1896, The Seagull is widely regarded as Chekhov's first masterpiece, subtly dissecting the affairs of the heart and the demands of a life in the arts, while balancing the comic, the lyric, and the tragic in a manner that has become the hallmark of his work. Recommended for kids 14+ due to mood and complexity of the show. Directed By: Rachel Tracie Mary Hill Theater November 8–17, 2012 November 8–10 and 15–17 at 7:30 p.m. November 17 at 2 p.m.

The 'G2K' Getting To Know Series: Uniquely adapted musicals specifically for youth performers. Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today.

Ahmanson Theatre

Roundabout Theatre Company's acclaimed Tony Award winner ANYTHING GOES sails into the Ahmanson in the Fall of 2012. Winner of three 2011 Tony Awards® including Best Revival of a Musical and Choreography, Roundabout Theatre Company's ANYTHING GOES continues on Broadway with Sutton Foster and Joel Grey at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. Director and choreographer Kathleen Marshall won the 2011 Tony Award® for Best Choreography. New Yorker Magazine says "I challenge you to find a natural high greater than the first-act finale of ANYTHING GOES, a giddy layer cake of tap-dancing sailors atop droll Cole Porter lyrics. Of course, ANYTHING GOES is from the golden age of musical comedy, a genre that is doggedly committed to manufacturing joy." Roundabout Theatre Company's ANYTHING GOES features music and lyrics by Cole Porter; original book by P.G. Wodehouse & Guy Bolton and Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse; and new book by Timothy Crouse and John Weidman. Cole Porter's roundup of nostalgic hits in the production include "You're the Top," "Friendship," "I Get a Kick Out of You," "It's De-Lovely," "Blow, Gabriel, Blow" and, of course "Anything Goes." This 1934 musical comedy about the lovers, liars and clowns on a transatlantic cruise is "a daffy, shipshape romp!" - Variety. When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love… proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. The New Broadway Cast Recording of Roundabout Theatre Company's ANYTHING GOES, nominated for a 2012 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album, is available on Ghostlight Records.
