“I have enjoyed several careers before retiring to Branson last year. My Clothing and Design degree from the University of Missouri led to an exciting career in the fashion industry throughout the country. When family brought me back to my roots in Missouri, I went back to school for my Masters in Education. I then taught high school art and adult classes in my hometown of Nevada, Missouri. As a member of the art communities of both Nevada and later Stockton, I developed art shows, classes, city murals, and workshops. My love of art and community always find a home wherever I live.” – Kelly Wrenn (Art Instructor)

HISTORIC OWEN THEATRE TICKETS

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

Shakespeare in the Park Opens This Sunday in Hollister

Forte Theatre Productions and The Branson Regional Arts Council are partnering once again to present Shakespeare in the Park in Southwest Missouri.  This year’s production, “The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet” is set in the last days of the Civil War.
Performances will take place at Chad A. Fuqua Memorial Park in Downtown Hollister on Sunday July 29, Monday July 30 and August 5th and 6th at 8pm.  Tickets may be purchased at the gate line, however (no wait) advance tickets are available at BransonArts.org/tix.

This is a “bring your own blanket or lawn chair” event.

The famous Shakespearean love tragedy takes on a new challenge, as not only are Romeo and Juliet from opposing families, they are on opposing sides of the war.  “Incorporating Missouri Civil War history in our version of Romeo and Juliet plays to the tension of the story,” says Forte Theatre producer Tina Cool-Anderson. “Here in Missouri, it was family versus family.  The state was extremely divided.”

Music and costumes from the era are utilized in the production.

The show features a 15 foot antebellum home set piece designed by Ian and Duane Lahlum. It is distressed to showcase the wages of war. Extensive fight sequences choreographed by Brian Huff include sword play and even a bull whip.  “These are not your traditional fights seen in Romeo and Juliet.  It is going to keep the audience on their toes,” says Cool-Anderson.

The cast of 15 includes Maceo Cortezz as Romeo and Brenna Kellem as Juliet.  Cortezz is a recent high school grad and will be studying acting in London in September at the prestigious Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.  Kellem will be a senior at Forsyth Public Schools.
Other cast members are Josh Boulden (Mercutio), John Paul Fox (Benvolio), Brian Huff (Tybalt), Michael Sager (Friar Lawrence), Randi Shetley (Lady Capulet), Mindy Law (Nurse),  Jeffrey Stringer (Capulet), Tommie Anderson (Montague), Joel Ashur (Paris), Daniel Bush (Prince), Charis Boulden (Featured Ensemble) Mary Huff (Featured Ensemble) and Brandon Farrar (Featured Ensemble).
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is directed by Justin Ables with choreography by Cori Briggs.

Theatre Arts Opportunities For Branson Tri-Lakes Area Youth

BRAC’s Youth Troupe Institute – July 16-August 5, 2018

Youth Troupe Institute’s Aladdin Jr. Cast

As the curtain closed on the Branson Regional Arts Council’s Youth Troupe production of Aladdin Jr. last week, 43 young area actors received an enthusiastic standing ovation from the appreciative audience. Two and a half weeks of preparation, six public performances, and six standing ovations left these kids feeling proud of their accomplishments. Their parents were equally proud of the effort, dedication, and courage that their children put forth as part of this exciting musical production.

During the final performance, emotions were high as the kids experienced joy for what they had accomplished, as well as sadness that their 3 week theatrical adventure had come to an end. They all have one thing in common, however, their lives have been positively influenced by the opportunity to learn and grow their confidence and performing skills through their participation in the Youth Troupe Institute program.

Youth Troupe Institute’s Aladdin Jr. Cast

Disney’s Aladdin Jr. was the first of two Youth Troupe Institute programs this year, specifically designed for students age 6-18.  The next program begins on July 16th and culminates with public performances of Seussical Jr. from August 2nd – 5th at the Historic Owen Theatre in downtown Branson. There are no auditions to participate, just a registration fee to help cover a small portion of the expenses involved in producing a community theatre show of this quality. A professional team of Producers, Directors, Technicians and trained volunteers work with the children in a safe, and nurturing environment in order for these young actors to enjoy the best experience possible, while they grow and develop their social and interpersonal skills through the performing arts.

Additional information and registration for Youth Troupe Institute 2 can be found at BransonArts.org/institute.

The Branson Regional Arts Council and Forte Theatrical Productions present, The Diary of Anne Frank, a play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett.

Six public performances will take place at the Historic Owen Theatre on Sunday May 6th at 2pm and 7pm, Monday May 7th at 7pm, Sunday May 13th at 2pm and 7pm, and Monday May 14th at 7pm.

Cast rehearsal for The Diary of Anne Frank

This popular dramatic presentation is one of the most famous and haunting stories to emerge from the 20th Century. The memoirs of this young Jewish girl, forced to hide for nearly two years to escape Nazi persecution, are an essential part of how we remember one of the darkest periods of our human history.

For nearly two years, Anne, her father, mother, and sister, joined with the Van Daan family, to hide in a secret annex space above her father’s former office in Amsterdam, as the Nazis deported the Jews of Holland to their deaths. In her secret attic, Anne comes of age: she laughs, plays, fights with her mother, and falls in love for the first time.

In spite of her oppressive circumstances and the horrors that surround her, Anne’s spirit transcends, as she voices her belief, “in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.” Anne’s dynamism, her luminous spirit, and her story of resilience continue to resonate deeply, making her story as vital today as when her diary first was published.

Forte’s production of The Diary of Anne Frank is produced by Tina Cool Anderson, and directed by Justin Ables.Cast members included Emily Homburger as Anne Frank, Tom Hallet as Mr. Frank, Ariel Jenkins as Miep, Charis Boulden as Mrs. Van Daan, Perry Harper as Mr. Van Daan, Stephen Baker as Peter Van Daan, Mary Huff as Mrs. Frank, Abigayle Wilcox as Margot Frank, Ian Lahlum as Mr. Kraler, and Josh Boulden as Mr. Dussel.  Costumes are designed by Kristen Ables, and Matthew Noll is the Stage Manager.

Nightclub singer Reno Sweeney and Public Enemy #13 Moonface Martin aid Billy in his quest to win Hope. The musical introduced such songs as “Anything Goes”, “You’re the Top”, and “I Get a Kick Out of You.”

The high energy dance musical features a cast of 25 actors, and will be presented at the Historic Owen Theatre, 205 S. Commercial St., Branson, MO 65616.
