August 2017 • 9 to 5, The Musical Auditions

9 to 5, The Musical

Auditions

Tuesday, August 15 &
Thursday, August 17
6  to 10 p.m.
Performing Arts Center,
Snowflake/Taylor Campus

Performing Arts and show Director Dr. Mike Solomonson recommends preparing a one-minute comic or dramatic monologue of your choice, and 16 bars of a Broadway-style song. An accompanist will be available to play if provided sheet music. There will also be cold readings from the script as part of the audition process. Music Theatre International, the performance licensing company, rates the script PG-13 for drug references and some adult language.

9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.

Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with Mr. Hart — the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?

This high-energy show is ideal for a large, mostly female cast, but also has opportunities for talented male performers, notes Solomonson.  The musical also has a multi-media component that will be coordinated by Mark Ford, NPC's Film and Digital Video faculty member, and his students.

Questions about 9 to 5, the Musical auditions or fall 2017 performing arts classes can be directed to Performing Arts Department Chair Dr. Mike Solomonson at 536-6217 or email.

Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2

Friday, Aug. 25, 2017
Show begins at 7 p.m.

Rated PG-13 • Released May 2017

Peter Quill and his fellow Guardians are hired by a powerful alien race, the Sovereign, to protect their precious batteries from invaders.

Cars 3 - Driven to Win

Friday, Sept. 15, 2017
Show begins at 7 p.m.

Rated G • Released June 2017

Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo), with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn't through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing's biggest stage!  Geoffrey Macnab of Independent (UK) writes:  “Cars 3 itself is a sprightly and likeable film because it shares Lightning's self-effacing qualities and his nostalgic fondness for looking at life through the rear view mirror.”  This family-friendly film is *Rated G*

October 2017 • Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Friday, Oct. 6, 2017
Show begins at 7 p.m.

Rated PG-13* • Released July 2017

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine--distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man--but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.  Christopher Orr of The Atlantic writes: “An utter gas, a fast and very funny super-flick that inserts Spidey into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe without ever losing sight of what makes him unique and beloved.”  *Rated PG-13* (Sci-fi action violence, some language and brief
suggestive comments).
