PerformingView December

A Time to Perform In November
By Kaye Osborn

My husband, Jerry and I recently went to San Francisco to see the Tony winning musical Pippin. It was amazing! The sets, the costumes, the performers were mesmerizing! I was in Pippin at Modesto Junior College. It was my first audition! Happily I was cast! Our ensemble was very talented! We had a great director, Michael Sundquist and choreographer Lori Bryhni! As I was sitting in the audience in San Francisco, many joyous memories embraced me. I immediately began remembering cast members, choreography, costumes and staging. To be part of a cast is a team building experience. Everyone applauds and supports each other. You become family! So, if you have never auditioned for a show, maybe you should reconsider. You just might surprise yourself.

Here’s what happening in our neck of the woods!

In the last decade of the twentieth century, a beautiful young woman in nineteenth-century clothing is found floating on an iceberg in the middle of the North Atlantic. When rescued, she says only one word: Titanic. The woman, Winifred, is taken to an isolated spot on the coast of Maine where an expert on the sinking of the liner, a mysterious man named John, has arranged to interrogate her for six days. His goal: to crack her story, get her to confess she’s a fake, and reveal her true identity; his one clue: her enigmatic references to an unknown place called “Scotland Road.” By the play’s end, one of the characters is dead, all the characters’ identities have been questioned, and John and Winifred’s shared secret is revealed as they make one final journey to Scotland Road.
