Kechi Playhouse will hold auditions for A Little Murder Never Hurt Any Body by Ron Bernas on Tuesday, June 14th starting at 7:00 p.m. The Playhouse is located at north Oliver and 61st Street, or for those of you with GPS systems,100 East Kechi Road.
The play, a very silly comedy with parts for 2 women and 4 men, will run for 16 performances, August 4 – 28.
The story opens on New Year’s Eve with Julia and Matthew announcing their resolutions for the coming year. Julia, after declaring that she has decided to read Dr. Zhivago, is taken aback upon learning that Matthew’s resolution is to kill her before the year is out! Other characters are their rather addle-brained daughter Bunny, her finance Donald, Buttram the Butler and a hard working, if somewhat inept, detective named Plotnik.
Shows are Thursday through Saturday evenings with Sunday matinees starting at 2:30. Rehearsals will run through July. Reading material will be provided, so come on out and bring a friend!

Everyone's hard work this last month has paid off – our first show for 2011, Rashomon, opened at the Playhouse June 2nd and we want everyone to come see a performance!

Tickets are $10 on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons and $11 on Fridays and Saturdays. Rashomon will run until June 26 and, while we recommend reservations, they aren't necessary – come on out and we will find space for YOU!

On the Playhouse front, rehearsals for Rashomon are underway with David Dennis and Abri Geist creating and teaching the big samurai sword fight to Jason LaCoss and Paul Snyder. It is so exciting to see this Japanese folk tale come to life on our stage. Thanks to Mark Anderson and his brother we now have one of the tall plaforms from Wichita Community Theater's production of To Kill A Mockingbird on stage waiting to be turned into the Big Rashomon Gate, and all the actors are working hard on their parts. We should be ready to open by June 2nd so mark your calenders and come get in on all the fun! See You Soon!

Well, the photo isn't really Japan – it's the Wichita temple where I saw the Jade Buddha as he was traveling through on his way to his new home in Australia, but it seems like a good picture for this blog entry, because auditions for RaSHOmon (Accent on the second vowel, please) will be April 25th and 26. Rashomon is a tale of mystery set in old Japan and we think it will be an amazing show. Two of the roles have been taken, but we are still looking for lots of people, and not only for our June show but for our July show as well when we will be doing a comedy called The Psychic. Readings start at 7:00 in the evening both days and we would love to see you here. The Playhouse is at North Oliver ad 61st street. Hope to see you there!
