Conquering the Dance Call @ WaterTower Theatre
Oct 4 @ 6:30 pm – Oct 11 @ 8:00 pm

An “on your feet” participation-based workshop, Conquering the Dance Call will take the singer/actor who “moves well” through the basic jazz and ballet steps that are likely to show up in most musical theatre movement or dance calls. This workshop is specifically geared toward music theater performers both new and established, and was created by Penny Ayn Maas, educator, choreographer, director & Broadway performer, with the goal of demystifying dance calls- to break it down into the essential information necessary to successfully navigate the movement portion of any audition call with style, personality, and confidence.

Many times, singers/actors who feel they are not dancers, or lacked access to the dance training that their competitors have, or who lack the confidence in their current level of dance ability, shy away from auditions that have a movement calls. This program seeks to level the playing field and give good movers and those that wish to, the chance to improve their core skill-set, tackle that next audition with confidence, and get noticed to book the job!

The Taming @ WaterTower Theatre
Oct 13 @ 7:12 pm – Oct 24 @ 8:12 pm

A patriotism obsessed Miss Georgia has kidnapped a Republican Senator’s campaign manager & a liberal activist who is fighting to save the endangered pandashrew, and is holding them hostage in her hotel room the night before the big Miss America Pageant. In this hilarious, raucous, all-female “power-play” inspired by Shakespeare’s Shrew, contestant Katherine has political aspirations to match her beauty pageant ambitions. All she needs to revolutionize the American government is the help of one ultra-conservative senator’s aide on the cusp of a career breakthrough, and one bleeding-heart liberal blogger who will do anything for her cause. Well, that and a semi-historically-accurate trip where they search for the secret to fix our broken democracy by becoming James Madison & George Washington. Here’s lookin’ at you, America.
