A Christmas Carol

Join us for this celebrated holiday tradition! The Charles Dickens classic will be brought to life once again by Shining Light Productions in a picturesque storybook setting. It is Christmas Eve, when the crotchety and cruel Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his old business partner, Jacob Marley. Marley warns Scrooge of the spirits to follow and to take heed of what is to come. The Ghost of Christmas Past and Present show Scrooge the carefree child he once was, and how money and life have hardened his soul. Once he is visited by the Ghost of Christmas Future, Scrooge learns the fate that awaits him, should he not change his ways and let the joy of Christmas into his heart.

West Side Story

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim is often considered Broadway's finest, its songs a part of the nation's musical heritage. With such memorable songs as “America,” “Tonight,” “I Feel Pretty,” and of course, “Somewhere,” Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs: the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican immigrant Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence, and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching, and relevant musical dramas of our time.

Auditions will be held at the Stadium Theatre Performing Arts Centre - 28 Monument Square, Woonsocket, RI 02895 on Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 and Wednesday, October 25th, 2017, beginning at 6:30pm.
