Paradise Valley Community College's 2016 / 2017 Season!
Paradise Valley Community College
by Michael Frayn directed by Gary Zaro
Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing's On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant plate of sardines all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.
CPA Show Dates: September 30, October 1, 7, 8, at 7:30pm and 2 & 9 at 2:00pm.
by Kevin Dyer, directed by Craig Kosnik
Freddie receives a mysterious text from his dad, a soldier fighting in a faraway war. He is in trouble and only his son can help. Transported to the twisting, turning labyrinth of ancient Minos, Freddie must travel through time to fulfill his destiny. Can he slay the half-bull, half-man Minotaur and rescue his father?
Studio Show Dates: November 11, 12, 18, 19 at 7:30pm and November 13 & 20 at 2:00pm. And two matinee performances for Middle Schools (and public) November 11 & 17 at 11am.
Advanced Directing Student Shows
Each year in our Studio Theatre we have opportunities for our students to direct One Act plays or Full length plays if they are directing a second time. There is always a wonderful variety and even some original works written by the directors.
Titles and their specific performance dates will be announced sometime in December. February/March
All My Sons
by Arthur Miller directed by Joe Flowers:
In 1947, Arthur Miller exploded onto Broadway with his first major work, All My Sons, winning both the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best New Play and the Tony for Best Author. The play introduced themes that would preoccupy Miller throughout his career: the relationships between fathers and sons and the conflict between business and personal ethics. All My Sons is still a powerful show, a true classic of the Theatre.
CPA Show Dates: April 14, 15, 21, 22 at 7:30pm and 22 & 23 at 2:00pm.
How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
by Frank Loesser, Jack Weinstock, Abe Burrows and Willie Gilbert directed by Andrea Robertson
A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant "company man," the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.
CPA Show Dates: June 16, 17, 23, 24 at 7:30pm and 18, 25 at 2:00pm.
