The Play Is You!

What happens when summer theater expands into the winter? Everything's upside-down!

Normally, when Endless Mountains Theatre Company holds auditions for its crowd-pleasing shows, the plays are selected in advance. But for EMTC's upcoming winter 2004 productions, there's going to be an exciting inversion of this process.

"We're keeping our options open regarding the choice of play," explains EMTC Chair Bob DeLuca. "We may get some different people going out for theater at this time of year, and once we can assess all the talent at our disposal, we'll be in a great position to pick a play that's just right." Among the plays that the Company is considering are Steel Magnolias (which EMTC presented in 2000), Love Letters, The Nerd, Same Time Next Year, and The Diaries of Adam and Eve.

This winter production will actually be twin productions – a weekend of performances at the Carriage Inn in Tunkhannock (weekend of February 15, in conjunction with the Endless Mountains Council of the Arts), followed by a return to Susquehanna County the weekend of March 6, when the same play will be performed at Blue Ridge High School in New Milford. The arrangement with EMCA follows EMTC's successful production of their summer hit "Figments," in Tunkhannock this September.

The New Milford production will serve as a fund-raiser for EMTC's important summer youth program, the Ed Lonzinski Middle/High School Theatre Camp. Like the 3-year-old theater camp, the presentation of winter shows demonstrates how much this community theater group has grown since its inception in 1999.

Open auditions will be held on January 3, 6:30 p.m. at Blue Ridge. Show and casting decisions will be made quickly, and rehearsals will kick off on January 5. EMTC encourages all adults and teens with a dramatic flair to escape the winter doldrums by taking to the stage!
