Theatre Season 2022-2023

As sometimes happens, we suddenly had to rethink directors, calendar positions, and titles.  We had a list of shows that suited the first production slot.    As always, the parameters included calendar time for rehearsals, hitting important dates (such as homecoming), time to build scenery for a given show, appropriate roles to serve current students, vocal parts, necessary creative staff, etc. “The students think we’re doing Into the Woods.”  “I know.”  “Ha ha.”  “It’s not even on the list.”  “You know, if we WERE doing into the woods, it would solve almost as many problems as this show.  Maybe more”  “Yes.”  “Actually, it would be better than this one, and this one, too.”  “Yes.  And better than this one, and maybe better than this one.”  “Hmm.”  “Maybe we should add it to the list.”  “If we end up doing it, some of them are gonna be mad.”  “Yes.”  “Ha ha.” So, to those of you who might feel misled:  Sorry.  Also: ha ha.  😀             – Kizer Into the Woodsby James Lapine and Stephen SondheimDirected by Jessie ChapmanOctober 6 – 8 (NHETG and Homecoming)Auditions in April with limited rehearsals following this spring.https://www.mtishows.com/into-the-woods The story follows a Baker and his wife, who Read More
