MEN NEEDED AT LYRIC ARTS FOR MULTIPLE ROLES
Lyric Arts is seeking men to play some specific roles in CONEY ISLAND CHRISTMAS and SUPERIOR DONUTS as part of the 2017–2018 season. You can read more about these two productions on our website at www.lyricarts.org/productions.
CONEY ISLAND CHRISTMAS (runs Nov 17-Dec 17; first rehearsal on Oct 3)
Seeking multiple male actors aged 17-28 to portray sixth grade students. Although the students are cast with adult actors, they should be youthful enough to be plausible as a group of 12-year olds, and it is important that the ensemble captures the ‘essence’ of being children without ‘doing’ children.
Actors will need to have a playful sense of engagement while actively contributing to the ensemble dynamic of the students.
Actors should be under 6’ tall. Actors of all ethnicities are STRONGLY encouraged to submit.
SUPERIOR DONUTS (runs Jan 12-28; first rehearsal on Nov 20)
OFFICER JAMES BAILEY: 43 years old. African-American. A good cop and a Star Trek superfan. Tough, but with a heart.
Please submit your headshot, resume, and potential conflicts to firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP. Please also include the word “CASTING” in the subject header, along with the show and/or role in which you are interested. Stipend paid.
This Just In...
From one quartet to the next, Armando Ronconi, currently starring in "Anything Goes" has been cast in Forever Plaid: Plaid Tidings, opening Thursday, Nov. 20 as part of our holiday season of shows. Read on to see more about who has been cast in this fun holiday musical revue.
Cherry and Spoon says "Director Scott Ford has assembled a fantastic cast of Lyric favorites and newcomers. In the latter category, Jaclyn Juola as Reno is a wonderful addition to the #TCTheater scene and I look forward to seeing more of her.

Great choreography is essential to a great musical. We sat down with Lauri Kraft, the choreographer of "Anything Goes" at Lyric Arts to learn more about her role in creating a show.
What do you get when you take three little girls, one smart and savvy workshop instructor and give them a week to talk about what they want to be when they grow up? You get Lyric Arts Academy's summer workshop "The Wonderful Things You'll Do"

CASTING ANNOUNCEMENT: Flavio Betrayed: A Commedia cast has been finalized and we are thrilled to share with you a group of very talented performers who have the challenge of taking on Lyric Art's first adventure into the Italian-inspired theater style of commedia. You don't want to miss this fun!
I don’t know if you have heard the news, but Lyric Arts is having an absolutely spectacular season. And, your past support is what has helped us get here! I want to thank you from the
bottom of my heart for your helping providing a warm and welcoming home for professional theater (and theater education) right here in downtown Anoka.
Quite literally, Lyric Arts couldn’t entertain and inspire tens of thousands of audience members, artists, technicians, volunteers, and workshop students every year without generous
contributions from theater lovers just like you—and for those gifts, we are enormously grateful.
Director Scott Ford gives his take on the upcoming production of Anything Goes and Kate Beahen sings a song from the show. Find out which song when you watch our Director's Take video for the show that the AM New Yorker calls, “a giddy explosion of escapist romance, combining old-fashioned farce, extended dance breaks and light, breezy songs.”
On Saturday night, Jill Shafer of Cherry and Spoon came to see our production of Moonlight and Magnolias, here's what she had to say...
"Although it became and still remains the highest grossing film of all time (adjusted for inflation), Gone with the Wind had an infamously difficult beginning. Producer David O. Selznick bought the rights to the popular book shortly after it was published in 1936, and spent years obsessing over every detail of the production, hiring and firing directors and screenwriters along the way."
The Golden Age of Hollywood
