Foothill College Theatre Arts Announces Auditions for
The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui
Chicago! A city of jazz and gangsters, prohibition and poverty. Amongst the murk of the Great Depression, there’s room for a small time crook like Arturo Ui to make a name for himself. Ui and his henchmen just want to look after you, to offer protection for workers, for jobs, for businesses. Nothing to fear. But a little bribery here, some harmless corruption there, and soon something much more dangerous takes hold. Brecht’s satirical masterpiece about the rise of a demagogue in a new adaptation by Pulitzer, Olivier and Tony Award-winning American playwright, Bruce Norris.
Directed by Bruce McLeod

Foothill Music Theatre Announces Auditions for
The Mystery of Edwin Drood ~ This hilarious musical whodunit was a smash hit on Broadway where it received rave reviews. Loosely based on Charles Dickens' famous unfinished novel, it takes audience participation to new heights by letting them directly affect the play's outcome by voting for whomever they think murdered the unfortunate young Edwin Drood. Presented as a 'first night performance by The Music Hall Royale', a troupe of decidedly hammy Victorian actors, this affectionate recreation of a bygone theatrical age is certain to prove an enormous hit with everyone. The witty and tuneful score contains such numbers as "There You Are", "Moonfall", "Perfect Strangers" and "Off To The Races"
