Seeking Creative teams for summer adult production!

 

Oh what a phenomenon  you could create this summer!

 

Do you have a show in mind you are passionate to direct this summer ?  We would love to hear your ideas!

 

Actorsingers is gearing up for summer 2016 and is putting the call out for Directing teams (Director, Music Director, Choreographer) who have a show in mind they would love to bring to stage this summer!

 

Interested teams should email secretary@actorsingers.org by April 29, 2016 with their proposed show title and resumes of the Direction team. The team should be prepared to make a presentation sharing your vision for the show to the Board of Directors. Interviews will be scheduled at a later date.

 

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

 

This years summer adult show is scheduled for August 26-28 at Janice B. Streeter Theatre in Nashua.

In The Spotlight - Becca Urban (2015)  

Costuming Assistant Into The Woods

Using theater as a loose term, Becca was what she called a “Disney” kid since childhood. Growing up on Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and all the rest.  She even went as Snow White for Halloween in a costume her mom had made for her. Becca got into doing improv around age 11, where she was a yogurt in a grocery store play, and then did true theater in high school.  Becca credits her friends as her inspiration for her getting into theater.  To her, they were shining stars on the stage, and not so shining backstage, so she signed up to support them, seeing all of the shows for free.  She says it just so happens that she became very good at “herding cats”.

Currently Actorsingers is the only theater group that Becca is involved with, but she also does Cosplay, Steampunk and roleplay as a hobby with friends on the weekends.  She is very excited to be a part of “Into the Woods| but her other two favorite shows are Almost Maine and a student written play from her high school of one act plays. What Becca enjoys most about being involved I community theater is that no one takes it too seriously.  Everyone is in it to have fun, put on a great production, and takes great pride in their work.

 When not doing costumes for “Into the Woods” Becca has an automotive back ground with engineering thrown in, but learned to love sewing about four years ago. She says that with lots of practice, she has honed her sewing skills and love to learn new things all of the time, usually out of necessity.  Becca’s dream is to be a lead costumer in a show that has many challenges.

In The Spotlight - Mia Berardi (2015) 

Cinderella in Into The Woods

Mia’s very first memory about musical theatre was being cast in “Gypsy”, her first musical show, in Keene, NH. She remembers opening night being super exciting. Seeing all of the grown up ladies putting their makeup on and doing their hair Mia her first rush of adrenaline and excitement. It was a magical moment, and one that she still feels every opening night of each show she is in.

Mia first performed in her first play in second grade. Her parents said was the only one who knew every single one of her lines, and the lines of her castmates!  She would even whisper the lines that were forgotten into the ears of the other characters onstage, to keep the show going. Her character in that show just happened to be a princess!

Mia credits her dad as her inspiration for getting into theater, as she says he was the theatre nerd in the family so he was the one that inspired to pursue it all. Her dad always made the most out of the parts he was given and Mia strives to do the same with every role she plays. Most of her shows have been with Actorsingers, but one of her most favorite shows ever was with Stagecoach Productions.

Her top three show are: “Legally Blonde”, “All Shook Up”, and “The Crucible”.

What Mia loves the most about being in Community Theater, are the people you meet. She says that she has met many amazing people that she happily calls friends. Mia has a B.A. of Fine Arts in Theater Performance, which is exactly what she loves to do. Any aspect of the theatre is what her heart and soul love. When not pursuing her passion, Mia loves to bake and make ring-bearer pillows. That may be super random, she says, but it is a lot of fun. Her dream roles are to play Millie, in “Thoroughly Modern Millie”, and to perform in “Jekyll and Hyde” as Lucy Harris, again.

Last, but certainly not the least, come see “Into the Woods”!!!!
