In view of the recent tragic events in our County and beyond, we at Curtain Call Theatre would like to reach out and express our deepest sympathies to all who lost loved ones, homes, pets, and other valuables during the last two harrowing weeks.

We must also keep in mind that it is important to go forward now and try to give our community something of another value which is what we do best, that is to entertain and evoke human feelings in our own small way.

Therefore, in consideration to other companies who had to cancel or postpone productions at this time due to the fires, we hereby announce open auditions for our 2018 Season at CCT to provide new opportunities to anyone who wants to be part of our efforts.

If I missed anyone in this bulk mailer, please forgive me and forward the message to everyone you think would like to join us in a friendly and supportive atmosphere crucial to our living art.

The Plays scheduled for 2018 Season are as follows:

  1. The Language of Flowers” by Gavin Kayner, a Sonoma County Premiere of a tantalizing psycological thriller, a first for CCT.
  2. Bullshot Crummond” by House, White & 3 other authors; a hilarious send-up of low budget 1930s detective movies.
  3. Count Dracula” by Ted Tiller based on Bram Stoker’s classic novel; scary with lots of laughs too. Just in time for the ghoulish Halloween festivities.
  4. Mrs. Warren’s Profession” by George Bernard Shaw; with his typical acerbic humor and social commentary that is just as relevant today as a hundred years ago.

We are looking for Actors of all ages, ethnicity, and gender.

The exciting next Season will thrill you beyond your wildest imagination.

“The Language of Flowers” by Gavin Kayner

March 2 – 24

(A California Premiere)
Directed by Michael Tabib

This is one of the most tantalizing plays in recent years. Two sisters, with a horrific mystery they share, must shut themselves away from the world until an unintentional intruder shatters their proverbial walls, culminating into unexpected revelations and surprises. Chock full of literary sensuality and dark humor, Mr. Kayner’s masterpiece is a must for the discerning theater goer. Adult situations. Don’t miss it!

“Bullshot Crummond”

June 1 – 23

by Ron House, Diz White, John Neville Andrews, Alan Shearman, and Derek Cunningham
Directed by Avi Lind

A parody of the 1930s low-budget grade “B” detective movies, this production derives its humor from the audacious attempt to transport effects normally reserved for films to the stage. Follow the fearless and somewhat dim-witted Captain Crummond through a series of adventuresome mishaps, alongside a damsel in distress, many colorful characters, and three deliciously nasty villains, to the long awaited conclusion of love, romance, and the saving of jolly old England from total annihilation. Fun for the whole family.

“Count Dracula” by Ted Tiller

October 5 – 27

Directed by Nadja Masura

The classic tale of the ultimate vampire, based on Bram Stoker’s horror novel, comes to life with some unexpected melodramatic humor and surprises. Special effects and colorful characters will add to your Halloween Season enjoyment. Bring the kids and come in costume for prizes and treats.

“Mrs. Warren’s Profession” by George Bernard Shaw

November 24 – December15 (10 performances only)

Directed by Michael Tabib.

Shavian humor and irony disguise this typical situation comedy of many a parent-child relationship. Not a Holiday play by any stretch of the imagination, but a lesson in life by any standard. A woman’s dishonorable past morphs into the failure of her life with the one important object of her being, her daughter. Or so she thinks! The dilemma that many parents must face with their children when the time comes for truth and reconciliation with their decisions for survival and self respect. Parents, beware of being judged by your own children!
