PROSSER – Valley Theater Company (VTC) is seeking potential directors and producers for its 2014-15 four-show season.
VTC owns the Princess Theatre in Prosser, where all performances are staged.
The new season will open with “Greater Tuna” this coming August. Richard Reuther of Richland will direct; a producer is not yet in place for this show. This comedy is about “the third smallest” town in Texas, where the Lions Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by two actors.
In December, VTC will present “The Rented Christmas,” a family-friendly holiday story about a man who hasn’t enjoyed a “real Christmas” for years. On the spur of the moment, he decides to “rent” a Christmas – complete with a tree, presents, carols, a wife and five children – from the local rental shop. VTC is seeking a director and producer for the production.
VTC’s February 2015 production will be “Altar Egos.” A recently engaged couple wants a simple wedding. Then, their families get involved. The comedy is a fun look at the “do’s and don’ts of an American wedding.” VTC is looking for a director and producer for the play.
The theatre troupe will close its season with “33 Variations,” which debuted on Broadway in 2009. The drama simultaneously examines the creative process behind Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations and the journey of a musicologist to discover why Beethoven was compelled to write 33 distinct variations on a simple theme by a minor music publisher. VTC seeks a director; Patty Cook of Richland is the producer.
Persons interested in directing or producing may contact Candace Andrews, VTC’s president-elect, at (509) 539-6764.
