FRESH FROM THE BOX OFFICE
Hamline University Theatre is proud to kick off its 82nd season with CABARET (the new Broadway revision), directed by Randy Winkler. “Life is a cabaret, old chum” in 1931 Berlin, Germany where the Nazis are rising to power. Sally Bowles, an English night-club singer, and her lover Clifford Bradshaw, an American writer, find themselves swept up in the decadence of a world on the verge of catastrophe. CABARET features a wild and raucous musical score (including a new song written specifically for the revision) and embraces sexuality as it showcases several touching and sometimes terrifying melodies to mesmerize the audience.
CABARET opens Friday, November 2 at 7:30 p.m. and runs November 8, 9 and 10 at 7:30 p.m. with performances on Saturday, November 3 at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. in Hamline University’s Anne Simley Theatre. Due to mature themes, this show may not be suitable for children.
Tickets are $2 for Hamline students, $3 for ACTC students and staff, $10 for adults, and $8 for outside students and seniors. Advance reservations are recommended and can be made through the Hamline University Theatre Box Office at 651-523-2905 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are so excited about the new ‘Les Mis’ film! It comes out on December 25th. Just watched the film trailer. Check it out and tell us what you think!
Welcome back, everyone! We’ve hit the ground running at HUT this season, and can’t wait for you all to get involved!
On Monday, rehearsals began for Hamline’s musical ‘Cabaret.’ We are so excited to be doing a musical at Hamline again! It’s going to be a real fun time – but you’ll just have to check it out for yourself in November.
Another show that’s currently being worked on is ‘Thom Pain,’ a 1-man show performed by Phil Behringer. This show also goes up in November, so keep your eye out for more information coming your way!
And finally, the Stage Direction class is hosting auditions on Sunday, September 23rd. These are great opportunities for students who want to act but don’t want the time commitment of a production. The auditions are for short, two person scenes that the students in Stage Direction work on as part of their grade. This set of auditions will be for the first three exercises; one in which the director stages a dream of their favorite character, a scene from ‘Romeo and Juliet,’ and another from ‘A Doll’s House.’ No preparation is necessary, just sign up for a time on the door of Drew Residence Hall 67, and show up there at 1:00 on Sunday! The auditions are scheduled until 4:00. Whether you’re new to HUT or are a senior desiring to stretch your acting skills further, the directing scenes are a great way to get involved!
Hello Theatre Patrons!
We are ending the semester next week, so there will be little to no postings on the blog until September.
Some notes from the library:
We will be open on Monday, May 14th 2:00 – 3:00 and Tuesday, May 15th 2:00 – 4:00. Make sure you return all the books you have checked out, or you will not be able to check out books next year.
Hamline University Theatre continues its 81st season with William Shakespeare’s TWELFTH NIGHT, directed by Associate Professor of Theatre Arts Jeff Turner. First performed in 1602, this Shakespearean classic is full of jovial festivities. This play hits the ground running as the world of Illyria is infused with a frenzied storm, hidden identities, and meddling fools. With the audience in on the joke, the players of Illyria struggle to figure out who’s who, who’s in love with whom, and who has gone mad. This production of TWELFTH NIGHT, presented in-the-round, is sure to entertain; from bath-tubs to fist fights, swords will be drawn.
Tickets are $2 for Hamline students, $3 for ACTC students and staff, $8 for adults, $5 for students and seniors. The show opens Friday, April 20 and runs April 21, 26, 27, and 28 at 7:30 p.m. with a Saturday Matinee on April 21 at 2:00 p.m. in Hamline’s Anne Simley Theater. Advance reservations are suggested for this production, and can be made through the Hamline University Theatre Box Office at 651-523-2905 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
