Now Playing Onstage in Raleigh - Week of 3/16/2014 HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS...TRYING
CARRBORO HIGH SCHOOL
3/20-3/23/2014
Power, sex, ambition, greed... it's just another day at the office. From the authors of GUYS AND DOLLS comes one of the most delightfully irreverent musicals of all time.  A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant "company man," the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.Winner of the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, HOW TO SUCCEED melds wit, comedy, and romance together to perfection. This show requires a large cast, featuring many roles for all types of performers.

Now Playing Onstage in Raleigh - Week of 3/16/2014Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party in Broadway" border="0" height="100" width="100" align="right"> ANDREW LIPPA'S THE WILD PARTY

3/7-3/23/2014
Adapted from a book-length poem written in and about the Roaring Twenties, Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party tells the story of one wild evening in the Manhattan apartment shared by Queenie and Burrs, a vaudeville dancer and a vaudeville clown. In a relationship marked by vicious behavior and recklessness (mirroring the time in which they live), they decide to throw a party to end all parties. As the guests arrive, we meet an assortment of people living on the edge. Queenie and Burrs set out to make each other jealous, but Queenie begins to fall in love with her conquest named Black. After a long night of decadence, Burrs' jealousy erupts and he comes to a violent end at Black's hand. In the stark light of a new day, Queenie moves out into a brighter world, although not necessarily a brighter future, leaving the passed-out revelers in her wake. An award-winning score by Andrew Lippa provides excitement and drive for this tale of passions out of control. Capturing the sound of a bygone era with a nod to the present one, he makes us realize that moral decadence is not only limited to our past. The Wild Party March 7-23, 2014 Book, lyrics and music by Andrew Lippa Directed by Craig Johnson Cast: Black: Ben Muller Burrs: James Ilsley Dolores: Jess Hill Eddie: Jon Todd Jackie: Randi Winter Kate: Melanie Carviou Madelaine True: Natalie Turgeon Mae: Lauren Knott Max: Bobby Furmage Nadine: Noelle Barnard Azarello Oscar D'Armano: Josh Kellum Phil D'Armano: Brent Blakesley Phryne: Julia Fair Queenie: Anne-Caitlin Donohue Sally: Alex Matsuo Sam: Roberto Diaz

Raleigh Little Theatre

OPQRS, ETC. By Madge Miller Part of the RLT Youth Series Gaddy-Goodwin Teaching Theatre; general admission March 14 - 30, 2014 Thursday & Friday 7:30 pm Saturday & Sunday 1 pm & 5 pm An original fable based on the fallacy that one color is superior to another. Even the alphabet suffers in Ottoville, ruled by a ridiculous dictator, Otto the Of?cal. He decrees that orange is the only acceptable hue. The townspeople are further cowed by wearing labels that tell them how to behave: Peter the Prudent, Quilla the Quiet, Stacia the Silly. Only Rozelle the Rebellious refuses to conform and dares to bring a blue ?ower into Otto's orange world. It takes the arrival of an artist, loving all the tints of the rainbow, to paint Otto in his true colors!
