9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie.

Rated PG-13 |Some Adult Language & Situations

Set in the late 1970s. This hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can’t she?

This high-energy show is not only a blast for those on the stage, but also for everyone in the audience! With its jubilant score and easily relatable characters, 9 to 5 is the perfect show to bring to our community this September.

The production is directed by Kyle Bradley with vocal direction by Lloyd Alexander-Holt, and choreography by Jordan Alexander-Holt. Photography by Marshall Meadows.

Prospero’s slave, Caliban, plots to rid himself of his master, but is thwarted by Prospero’s spirit-servant Ariel. The King’s young son Ferdinand, thought to be dead, falls in love with Prospero’s daughter Miranda. Their celebrations are cut short when Prospero confronts his brother and reveals his identity as the usurped Duke of Milan. The families are reunited and all conflict is resolved. Prospero grants Ariel his freedom and prepares to leave the island.

Recyclable trash helps to create the theatrical magic of The Tempest.

SYNOPSIS

The final collaboration between Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein II, The Sound of Music, has become a play beloved around the world. Based on the true story of the Trapp Family Singers, this play captures a personal tale of growth and hope amidst the horrors of World War II. 

The Sound of Music tells the tale of young postulant Maria Rainer, whose free spirit has trouble fitting into the rules and regulations of Nonnberg Abbey. Commissioned by the Mother Abbess to serve as the governess for seven motherless children, Maria transforms the von Trapp family home from a place of dour rules and regulations to one filled with joy, with laughter, and with music.

In the process, Maria wins the hearts of all seven children–and their widower father, Captain von Trapp. With the Mother Abbess’ blessing, and to the children’s delight, Maria follows her heart, and Maria and the Captain marry.

Upon returning home from their honeymoon, Maria and the Captain learn that their beloved Austria has been taken over by the Nazis, and the retired Captain is asked to report for immediate service in the Nazi Navy. When the Nazis show up at their door to take Captain von Trapp away, it is a family singing engagement (wily navigated by their friend Max) that buys the family time to make their narrow escape.

Their Austrian convictions compel Maria, the Captain, and the children to flee over the mountains of Switzerland to safety, taking the words of the Mother Abbess to heart: “Climb Every Mountain… till you find your dream.”

The Branson Regional Arts Council is holding open auditions this Thursday and Saturday for an award-winning musical based on the Stephen King novel Carrie. This will be an add-on Halloween themed production to be presented in late-October 2021.

Carrie White is a teenage outcast who longs to fit in. At school, she’s bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s dominated by her loving but cruelly controlling mother. What none of them know is that Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it.

Set in the present in the small New England town of Chamberlain, Maine, Carrie: The Musical features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose). The BRAC production is directed by Jacob Deck.

All Roles Open: Males & Females to play 16-65

ETHNICITY: All Ethnicities

ROLES:

CARRIE WHITE (Lead): Female, should read 17 onstage
Painfully shy outsider who, in spite of her best efforts to belong, has been a victim of her
classmates’ cruel jokes since childhood, as well as her mother’s strict, biblically ordained control at home; transforms from ugly duckling into graceful, and then vengeful, swan; vocally, she must be capable of lyrical sweetness as well as fierce power. Mezzo-Soprano.

MARGARET WHITE (Lead): Female to play 35-50
Woman of visceral extremes; balances her fervent religious convictions with equally sincere true-believer spirituality and tender, maternal love for Carrie; in the end, she proves to be a religious extremist; like Carrie, with whom she shares several duets, her voice must range from expressive and melodic to ferocious and frightening. Soprano.

SUE SNELL (Lead) Female, to play 17-18
A popular over achieving student. Her unthinking participation in a cruel act of bullying causes a crisis of conscience that leads her on a complicated emotional and psychological journey to make amends. Smart with just a touch of shrewd edge. The play is told through her memory. Vocally, she has a pop ballad voice that delivers sincerity and strength. Mezzo-Soprano.

TOMMY ROSS Male, to play 17-18
Handsome, popular star athlete, and all around standout. Yet he also has unexpected, quirky sensitivity and is just starting to mine his personal life and feelings – a budding poet. Effortless pop tenor.

CHRIS HARGENSEN Female, to play 17-18
Rich, spoiled, and dangerous. Serious daddy and anger management issues. Her voice is pop/rock percussive: rangy and powerful. Must be an equally strong dancer. Implied sexual content. Mezzo-Soprano.

BILLY NOLAN Male, 20s
A dangerous, trashy, stupid-like-a-fox bad boy beholden to Chris’s bidding. His voice is that of a wailing rocker. Implied sexual content. Baritone.

MISS GARDNER Female, to play mid-30’s
The girls’ no nonsense P.E. teacher. A tough disciplinarian, Carrie also arouses within her a surprising instinct to protect. Warm and powerful pop belt.

MR. STEPHENS / REV. BLISS Male, to play 30’s – 40’s
A still sexy English teacher and guidance counsellor not quite connected to the world of his students. Doubles as Reverend Bliss, the voice of a radio evangelist.

NORMA Female, to play to play 17-18
A gossip with an artistic hipster edge. Norma is second-in-command to Chris’ queen bee.

FRIEDA Female, to play 17-18
Sue’s sometime friend. A drama dork, she’s an easy going, get-along follower and a tireless extracurricular committee volunteer.

HELEN Female, to play 17-18
A leggy cheerleader. Giggly and easily shocked, her immaturity and need to belong make her the perfect example of the herd mentality.

GEORGE Male, to play 17-18
A jock. Preppy. Somewhat unsure. Tommy’s wingman since childhood.

STOKES Male, to play 17-18
A bit of a nerd, he’s happy to be sometimes included as one of Tommy’s posse.

FREDDY Male, to play 17-18
The wise-cracking class clown and official yearbook photographer, he can’t believe any girl would ever give him the time of day.

The Branson Regional Arts Council is indefinitely postponing the large cast production of Hunchback of Notre Dame that was scheduled to appear at the Historic Owen Theatre from October 14-24, 2021. There is no return date scheduled at this time but the production is in consideration for the 2022 season.

All current ticket holders for this production will be contacted and offered to have their tickets transferred to alternative productions instead.

“Concern for cast safety was the primary reason for pulling the Disney musical production from this season’s line-up. This particular musical would have been our largest cast of the year, and even has a full choir associated with the production.

Some of our talented actors and crew members had concerns regarding a huge cast on our small stage during a pandemic, and it was determined by our board of directors to be in the best interest of our patrons, actors, crew and volunteers if we hold off on this show while continuing to implement our effective safety protocols with our smaller cast shows.

We appreciate the understanding of our actors patrons as we continue to err on the side of caution during these challenging times for everyone.”
– BRAC Executive Director Jim Barber

BRAC Producers are currently considering a smaller cast replacement musical that would appear in late October at the Historic Owen Theatre.

There is also incredible talent that isn’t very well-known. There are up-and-comers and less experienced performers who are dedicated and working hard on their skills. They might be young, or they might have had to put their talent on the back-burner, or simply decided that their special gifts and talents were going to be a hobby, instead of a career.

Ozarks DynaCom is a family of five area radio stations that reach across Southwest Missouri and Northern Arkansas to an audience of over 200,000 listeners. In Branson, Missouri: 98.1 (Branson4U.com), 106.3 (KRZK), 100.1 (KOMC) and in Harrison, Arkansas: 102.9 (New Country), 94.9 (KHOZ).

These stations have all teamed up with the Branson Regional Arts Council and the Ozarks Arts Council to give striving performers, the unknown and the inexperienced their moment in the spotlight.
