The Actorsingers

Presenting Community Theatre since 1955

In The Spotlight - Christie Conticchio 

Placard Girl - REEFER MADNESS

"REEFER MADNESS"

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

CHRISTIE CONTICCHIO

PLACARD GIRL

Actorsingers is pleased to present Nashua’s own Christie Conticchio in our IN THE SPOTLIGHT Series.  She will be performing as Placard Girl in REEFER MADNESS.

Christie auditioned for the show because she wanted to work with the talented directorial team.  Also, she wanted to push herself creatively by doing a show outside of her comfort-zone. Christie was very excited as this was her first non-ensemble character role.

Her character's name is Dorothy "Placard Girl" Riley and is a fellow carefree teenager who uses her placards to clearly state scenes' moral lessons. The most challenging part is acting like she believes the placards...

 Christie's Actorsingers background started in 2014 with "Young Frankenstein".  She then did several shows with other neighboring communities.  In 2018, she did a lot of work with Actorsingers performing in Sister Act in May, then musically directed Damn Yankees in July. 

Christie's earliest theatre memory is her senior class play, "Bye Bye Birdie" she played Mrs. Macafee and she remembers how much fun it was to work with Mr. Heinhold. 

With every show her theatre family grows, and she is very blessed for all the wonderfully talented people she’s met. 

When Christie is not working in the theater, she loves spending time with her husband and friends. She also enjoys anything active such as biking, hiking, etc. 

 

Enjoy REEFER MADNESS August 31, September 1-2, 2018 ! Tickets available here !

ROLES:

Queenie, Female, 20-30, F3-F5 Blonde and beautiful. Sexy. Looks a little older and more tired than her age would indicate. Afraid of being alone. Has become addicted to Burrs' presence and ravenous sexual appetite.

Burrs, Male, 30-40, G3-A5 Handsome. A professional clown. Dangerous and charming all at once. Sexually ravenous and drawn to Queenie like a moth to the flame. Hurts somewhere deep inside, and slowly descends into jealous insanity.

Black, Male, 25-35, F3-G5 Strong, handsome, and poised without being posed. An enigmatic loner. Protective. No-nonsense kind of guy who cannot understand Queenie's attraction to Burrs.

Kate, Female, 20-30, F3-E5 A lush. Likes to be the "life of the party." Always looking out for number one, and is jealous of Queenie. Sexy, sensual, and confident.

Madeline True, Female, 30-55 (Age Flexible), A3-E5 A tired woman and an announced lesbian. Sexually hungry. Blunt and very dry.

Delores, Female, 30-45(Age Flexible), A3-A5 A party-goer pitching ideas and hoping to score with Sam. A wild woman of the night.

Eddie, Male, 30-45, A3-A5 Mae's husband who is perhaps even more dim-witted than she is. A big oaf. Can be a lovable teddy bear but also a quick tempered brute. Adores his wife.

Mae, Female, 25-45, A3-D5 Eddie's wife. Sweet and beautiful, but not particularly bright. Adores her husband and dotes on him.

Sam, Male, 30-50, A3-A5 Busy producer and "attention whore." Trying to avoid the outrageous pitches made by Dolores, until it becomes sexual.

Oscar D’Armano, Male, 25-35, A3-B5 Phil's brother and lover who dresses as his twin. A composer and an entertainer in every sense of the word. Very flamboyant.

Phil D’Armano, Male, 25-35, A3-A5 Oscar's brother and lover who dresses as his twin. A composer and an entertainer in every sense of the word. Very flamboyant.

Nadine, Female, “A Minor” 16-18 (in appearance) A3-A5 The only minor at the party. Waifish and somewhat naïve. She is in over her head and trying to keep up.

Max, Male, 25-35, A3-B5 One of the party goers and a member of the usual "gang." He is full of life and energy.

Jackie, Male, 20-30, (Ensemble singing/Good Dancer)

Ensemble (10-12) Male and Female, various vocal ranges, Should be good dancers.
