Studio Players is Creepy, Sexy, Funny & Smart in its 4th Season

Season4_WebBanner

Studio Players, in cooperation with Sheboygan Theatre Company, is proud to announce its 4th Season, to be performed at the Paradigm Annex from Fall 2015 through Spring 2016.

The 4th Season kicks off with Studio Players’ first foray into musical theater with The Rocky Horror Show, music, lyrics and book by Richard O’Brien. Brad and Janet come upon the home of the sweet transvestite, Frank ‘n’ Furter, and his gang of misfits. This kitschy rock ‘n’ roll sci-fi gothic is perfect for the Halloween season, and Studio Players will celebrate with a special midnight performance on October 31. The rest of the performances will run October 29-31, 2015 at 7:30 p.m.

In Jonathan Tolins’ deliciously funny send up of a pop icon, Buyer & Cellar takes a real setting (the boutique-style basement of Barbra Streisand’s California estate) and imagines what it would be like to be the shop keeper of Ms. Streisand’s mini mall. One actor takes on seven roles in this fast-paced and witty one-act play. Performances are January 28-30, 2016 at 7:30 p.m.

Finally, Studio Players takes our audience on a time-bending adventure in The Curious Case Of The Watson Intelligence, by Madeleine George. The titular “Watson” refers to Sherlock’s right hand man, Alexander Graham Bell’s assistant, the super-computer/Jeopardy! champion, and a regular IT worker trying to make sense of life and love in the modern day. A small cast embodies many -roles as the play jumps back and forth in time and space. Performances are March 17-19, 2016 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets for shows will be available for purchase online and in person at Paradigm Coffee & Music a few weeks prior to each show. Audition information for each production will be found on www.StudioPlayers.net. Find Studio Players on Facebook and follow @StudioPlayersWI on Twitter for updates as they happen.

Studio Players is pleased to announce shows for it’s upcoming 3rd season. The following shows will be presented at the Paradigm Annex.

The season kicks off with Greater Tuna, written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard. This ambitious comedy features two actors playing over 20 roles as they portray the hilarious lives of citizens in small town Tuna, TX. Greater Tuna made it’s off-Broadway premier in 1982, and was one of the most produced plays in the country by 1985.

Extremities, by William Mastrisimone, tells the story of a young woman, Marjorie, who is attacked in her home by a would-be rapist, Raul, and manages to turn the tables on him, tying him up in her fireplace. When Marjorie’s two friends return home, a tense argument ensues as each makes the case for what to do with Raul. Personal histories are shared, and secrets are spilled as Raul uses the knowledge he’s gained stalking the young women to negotiate his release. Extremities will play October 23-25, 2014.

Finally, Yankee Tavern, by Steven Dietz, will transport you inside the crumbling walls of a New York City bar. Just when you thought you’d heard every crazy 9/11 conspiracy theory, a stranger walks into the Yankee Tavern. There, a young couple finds themselves caught up in what might be the biggest conspiracy of all. This acclaimed production is a fierce, funny and ultimately mind-bending work of theatrical power that grips you until the final word. What you don’t know can hurt you. Yankee Tavern will play April 9-11, 2015.
