Join us! Six delightful comedies you should know!
In our convivial, professional, 90 minute, broad-stroke style!
September: Our 2015 Fundraiser “A Taste of Shakespeare” at the home of Dr. Mario and Therese Molina, was a huge, fun success. Thanks to all who came and who helped make it possible, especially Mary Chalon, Kim Besen and Nora Frankovich.
October: We open our production of George Bernard Shaw’s comic fable “Androcles and the Lion”. In Lance Davis’ timely adaptation a gentle dentist is threatened by a wounded lion. Sound familiar?
December: Mr. Dickens himself would enjoy our Readers’ Theater presentation of “Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story”, in which we highlight some of his finest descriptive passages.
February: Moliere’s “School for Wives!”. Creepy Arnolphe has created the perfect wife! His own ward, the lovely Agnes, raised in ignorance in a convent! But a giddy young idiot, Horace, enters the scene, and, of course, Love conquers all!
March: A reading of “The Wind in the Willows”, Kenneth Grahame’s idyllic tale of pre-war England, Mole, Rat, Badger, and the creatures of The Riverbank.
April: We’ll close our season with a production of “As You Were: Stories for GIs in WW2” - a “knapsack book” of American stories and poems, for our service men and women, compiled by Alexander Woollcott. Twain, O Henry, Whitman, Katherine Taylor, with a few tunes thrown in.
May: SideStreet Project’s “NEA: Our Town”. Parson’s Nose will present a reading of Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize winning classic, “Our Town” in the rotunda of Pasadena City Hall, featuring local talent from Northwest Pasadena and PNP company members!
Two exciting new projects: The PNT Academy and The Senior Theater Workshop.
Plus one major announcement. Stay tuned!
