Town Hall Arts Center is extremely lucky to have over 100 individuals dedicate countless hours to the theatre, without them, the show truly couldn’t go on! Many of these volunteers have been with us for years, others are just joining our team. I want to recognize every single person who is participating in our volunteer program, I am truly blessed to work with each of you, and it has been an absolute pleasure getting to know you this season. Big thanks to everyone who has signed up last minute to help during this busy holiday season, I can’t thank you enough!

Wishing you & yours the happiest holidays

& a fabulous NEW YEAR!

FALL CLASS PLAY PRODUCTION SCHEDULE:


 SUN | 12.07.14 | 6:00 PM

THE FINAL DRESS REHERSAL 

Grades 6 – 12

Directed by: Susan Rahmsdorff

Our most exciting production yet! One-half student created, one-half Noises Off! Our actors will create their unique characters and give them personality. Students build the first half of the show together as those characters hilariously audition for the school play. Then, in the second act, we go back to the script to see the disastrous results as the production falls apart around them! You think the theater is crazy from an audience perspective? Wait until you see the pandemonium back stage!

RSVP ON FACEBOOK


 MON | 12.08.14 | 6:00 PM

CINDERELLA: A COMEDY

Grades 3 – 5

Directed by: Luann Buckstein

Who let the mice drive? Join us for this hilarious “Fractured Fairytales” style take on the classic story. We all know the tale of little Ella, forced to do the dirty work so often she became Cinder-Ella! Thanks to her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella scrubs up pretty well, much to the dismay of her wicked Stepmother and terrible Step Sisters!

RSVP ON FACEBOOK


TUES | 12.09.14 | 5:30 PM

ROBIN HOOD

Grades K – 3

Directed by: Justin Kress

Join Robin Hood, Maid Marian, Little John and the whole band of Merry Outlaws as they take on the dastardly Sheriff of Nottingham. We’ll rob from the wicked and give to the good and have a great time doing it!

RSVP ON FACEBOOK


WED | 12.10.14 | 6:00 PM

PERCY JACKSON 2: SEA OF MONSTERS

Grades: 5 – 7

Directed by: Kelly McAllister

Kronos has a new plan to rise and destroy Olympus! This time, it starts with breaking down the protections around Camp Half-Blood. In an attempt to save their sanctuary, Percy, Grover, Annabeth, and Percy’s half-brother, Tyson, set off to find the mythical Golden Fleece that can heal any wound. Along the way, they’ll meet gods and monsters and an array of the most bizarre characters, all living unnoticed in our world! Can Percy accept the burdens of leadership and his family? Can you fight prophecy, even if you aren’t sure what it means? Who is going to get eaten and will that slow them down?

RSVP ON FACEBOOK


THURS | 12.11.14 | 4:00 PM

HARRY POTTER & THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX

Grades: 5 – 7

Directed by: LuAnn Buckstein

Will Harry be kicked out of Hogwarts? It looks that way. The Ministry of Magic is calling Harry a liar and denying the return of Voldemort. On top of that, the new Defense Teacher, Dolores Umbridge, seems determined to make everything worse! In response to these threats, Sirius Black, Harry’s godfather, introduces him to “The Order of the Phoenix” – a clandestine group formed to fight the Death Eaters and Harry starts “Dumbledore’s Army” – a clandestine student group formed to fight the problems within the school itself. Can Harry, Ron, Hermione and their friends take on all these troubles and still pass their O.W.L exams?

EDUCATION:  Attended Colorado Christian University, Los Angeles Film Studies Center and the Denver Center Theater Academy

DAY JOB: Administrative Assistant for two radio stations in Aurora


WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE…  

COLOR: Right now it’s red

MOVIE: It’s a toss-up between “Clueless,”  “Mean Girls” and “Bed of Roses”

BOOK: Just finished reading Patty LuPone’s Autobiography Patty LuPone: A Memoir and loved it!

BAND: Don’t have a favorite band, but favorite singer is Mariah Carey.

SONG: “If It’s Over” by Mariah Carey

MUSICAL: Many would say it’s “Dreamgirls” because I’m always quoting it, so we’ll go with that. Although I just saw “Kinky Boots” which could definitely become one of my favorite ones.

FOOD:  Breaded Steak and potatoes and/or Pizza

PLAY: Just read “Unmarried in America” by Kristin Carlson. Pretty powerful. (It’s based on the CA Prop 8 Trial of 2010)

BEVERAGE: Any herbal tea before bed or a Coke in the morning

HOLIDAY: Christmas!

SCENT:  Mom’s house.  She’s always cooking something up so it always smells amazing.


THIS OR THAT…  

DOGS OR CATS? Dogs

HEELS OR FLATS? Flats?

BOXERS OR BRIEFS? Boxer Briefs

COKE OR PEPSI? Coke

MAC OR PC? PC, although I’ve never had a Mac

SPRING OR FALL? Spring

SUNRISE OR SUNSET? Sunset

BEACH OR POOL?  Beach


ANSWER THIS…  

THE BEST INVENTION IN HISTORY IS? The Printing Press.

WHEN LIFE HANDS YOU LEMONS? See if you can switch up for a good Grapefruit or Pomegranate. They’re a lot more fun.

YOU’RE STRANDED ON A DESERTED ISLAND… WHAT TWO ITEMS DO YOU BRING? A good book and a warm coat (I’m sure whatever else you need you can find there)

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN ACTING? Started in Kindergarten with “The Three Little Pigs” (I played the Wolf).

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE ROLE YOU’VE PLAYED? Molina in “Kiss of the Spider Woman”

WHAT’S YOUR DREAM ROLE TO BE CAST? There are so many… but maybe Marius in “Les Miserables” or Linus in “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown.”

WHO IS YOUR HERO? BIGGEST INSPIRATION? Definitely my parents.  They’ve showed us the value of hard work at an early age and how important it is to have strong faith when everything seems helpless.

WHERE ARE YOU IN 10 YEARS? Who knows.  Life has taken me to some pretty cool places, but  I’d love to be back in California or overseas somewhere performing in shows.

CAN WE FOLLOW YOU? FB? TWITTER?  Twitter is fine. @gmorale83181014 (sorry didn’t know you could come up with with a cool name for it when I opened the account). LOL

WHY SEE ANYTHING GOES? It’s definitely a show for all the romantics at heart.  The notion of a handsome man pursuing a gorgeous girl the “old school way” definitely reminds us how much of that chivalry we have lost over the years due to technology advancing so fast.  I mean when a person gets asked out these days it’s via text.  Not even a phone call is made anymore. I think its super romantic that Billy goes through all that trouble to get the girl he loves.  Plus it’s Cole Porter’s music!  Enough said. =)
