Seeking Proposals for Teen Production  

To be staged July 17-19 2015
Posted by Evelynn Decker Thursday, October 2, 2014 12:29:00 PM Categories: Actorsingers Teen Seeking Directors

 

Actorsingers is gearing up for 2015 and we are putting out the call for Directing teams (Director, Music Director, Choreographer) who are interested in working on the Teen Actorsingers show the summer of 2015!

Interested teams should email Evelynn Decker at secretary@actorsingers.org by December 31st 2014 with the proposed show title and resumes of the Direction team. Teams should be prepared to make a presentation sharing the vision for your proposed show to the Board of Directors at the Tuesday January 6th board meeting.   

Although the Board typically selects a pre-formed team of Director, Music Director and Choreographer for our teen shows we are also open to interviewing individual director submissions and proposals; if we feel strongly about a fit after your individual interview the board will work to select the remaining members of the team.

The Teen show is scheduled for July 17-19, 2015 at Janice B. Streeter Theatre in Nashua.

Tell us what you want to see!
Posted by Evelynn Decker Thursday, August 7, 2014 2:29:00 PM Categories: Main Stage Survey

Now is your chance to have input into the Actorsingers upcoming Main Stage season!

We are looking for you to tell us which musical theatre productions you would like to attend and/or be a part of for the 2015-2016 season!

It's easy to help us pick our next season! Simply select 1-3 musicals from our 31 choices. That's it!

If you want to enter your own selections, that's great too but please make sure that your shows are available to Community Theatre companies before entering them. For example, Newsies is a great show but not available yet.

We'll tally the results and include your feedback into our discussions for our upcoming Main Stage Season.

This survey will close by October 1st.

In The Spotlight - Jenn Morton and Michelle Morrison 

Co-Producers The Music Man
Posted by Evelynn Decker Thursday, May 8, 2014 6:37:00 AM Categories: In the Spotlight

Jenn Morton and Michelle Morrison are co-producers for The Music Man. They just started producing Actorsingers youth shows a few years ago, and we are grateful they volunteered to take on producing a main-stage show! 

 

Jenn and Michelle became involved in Theatre because their children wanted to be in shows. Community theater is a great opportunity for families to work on something together, so they jumped in to help whenever there was a need. They want everyone to know that no prior theater experience is necessary. If you think this might be fun, give it a try! We are glad they did, because they have become valuable production resources for Actorsingers! Jenn and Michelle have made many friends and laughed often with Actorsingers pals. When they are old(er) and gray(er), some of their favorite memories will be of music and laughter that filled the rehearsal rooms and stairways of Actorsingers Hall.

 

They say “The best part of working on a show is getting to know the people involved. The cast members are very talented & have a wonderful time together. And just as important as the cast are the behind-the-scenes volunteers. The many hours and hours that it takes to coordinate every little piece of the show… publicity, the set, the costumes, props, lighting, sound, tickets, concessions, program… many people are spending time & energy thinking about those things and working hard to make sure every piece fits into place, like a giant puzzle.  Then, it all comes together during Tech Week (really, it does!) and you breathe a sigh of relief and have fun!”

 

By day, Michelle works as an account manager in corporate America, and Jenn is a home schooling volunteer-a-holic who works part time at the Nashua Public Library. They both love spending time with family & friends, as well as taking care of their pet menagerie, which includes chickens they inherited with their recently purchased home.
