Theater at Monmouth to Present THE MAKING OF A HARD DAY'S NIGHT, 8/7 Photos Theater at Monmouth to Present THE MAKING OF A HARD DAY'S NIGHT, 8/7
(7/29/2014) - The British Invasion continues at Theater at Monmouth with Mark S. Cartier's presentation The Making of a Hard Day's Night on Thursday, August 7 at 7:30 p.m. Join TAM favorite, Mark S. Cartier, as he covers a ten-month period in the history of the most influential band in the rock era: The Beatles. Developed as a final piece of component of the trilogy which includes The Beatlemania Years: 1962-1966 and Beatles: The Studio Years 1967-1970 produced at TAM in the 2012 and 2013 seasons. The Making of a Hard Day's Night starts in late 1963, as Beatlemania blossomed in Britain. United Artists offered the Beatles the chance to star in their own rock 'n' roll film. Mark S. Cartier traces how the group conquered America, unleashed the British Invasion, hosted their own television special, and launched their first world tour-all while simultaneously helping to create what Andrew Sarris of the Village Voice calls "the Citizen Kane of juke box movies."


BWW Reviews: Tomorrow's Stars Shine in GODSPELL Photos BWW Reviews: Tomorrow's Stars Shine in GODSPELL
(7/29/2014) - The intern program at Maine State Music Theatre is one of the company's finest features, and what better way to showcase these talented 2014 performers than as the youthful, energetic ensemble in the Steven Schwartz/John-Michael Tebelak rock musical, GODSPELL. Billed as a concert performance, this production directed by Curt Dale Clark, is actually fairly elaborate in terms of choreography and musical-dramatic staging. Clark sets a compelling pace - ninety minutes of sheer joie de vivre - and he draws from these young actors highly individualized and detailed characterizations, at the same time that he inspires the kind of ensemble dynamic so crucial to this show: the sense of love and sharing that resonates with the play's message and communicates to the audience.

There are always discoveries being made. This show is an adventure every single night!'

Twitchell is part of a six-person panel assembled at the Curtis Memorial Library on July 23 for the third Peek Behind the Curtain talkback.

WHAT THE BUTLER SAW to Open 8/1 at Theater at Monmouth Photos WHAT THE BUTLER SAW to Open 8/1 at Theater at Monmouth
(7/25/2014) - Joe Orton's frenetic farce, What the Butler Saw, opens at Theater at Monmouth on Friday, August 1 at 7:30 p.m. The perfect blend of Oscar Wilde's wit, Monty Python's physical comedy, and Benny Hill's lewdness, What the Butler Saw bursts with mistaken identities, catastrophic complications, and rapid-fire dialogue. Orton's ribald examination of societal attitudes toward sexuality is a rampaging celebration of licentiousness and free-will.

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail', "Spamalot" retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, cows, a killer rabbit and many French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?

(7/21/2014) - 'I definitely have a choreographic style - much of what I do is ballet-based and athletic, but I was trained in the Jack Cole manner. My mentors, Ron Lewis, Ron Fields, were all Jack Cole people. I have a strong sense of jazz, true American jazz based in ballet.' The speaker is a petite, svelte, red-haired dynamo of energy and bubbly enthusiasm. Seated opposite me a few days before the opening of her latest theatrical endeavor, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers at Maine State Music Theatre, director-choreographer Patti Colombo talks about her Maine debut and her other award-winning theatrical projects - among them, On the Town, West Side Story, Mask, L'il Abner, Peter Pan, Seussical, which have taken her to Broadway and around the world.
