Just a heads up: There are now links to our club constitution and officer duties to the right of this post!
This fall, 3rd Act will be producing one of the following two musicals. Below are synopses, character breakdowns and links where you can find the cast recordings to preview.
The Spitfire Grill
Music and Book by James Valcq
Lyrics and Book by Fred Alley
Cast: 3m 4f
A feisty parolee follows her dreams, based on a page from an old travel book, to a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill. It is for sale but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy suggests to Hannah that she raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow full and things are definitely cookin’ at the Spitfire Grill.

Music and Lyrics by Barry Keating
Book by Barry Keating and Stuart Ross
Cast: 5m 6f (Possible Chorus)
Shy teenager Eleanor has built a fantasy world around the sci-fi comic books she collects. To the distress of her mother, she has learned to avoid the pains of growing up by escaping into fantasy, imagining herself to be an unrecognized superhero. When she is mysteriously thrust into the world of her favorite comic book, Eleanor is drawn into the conflict between Shak Graa, Arch-Creep of Chaos, and the Starmites, guardian angels of Innerspace. She turns out to be the legendary Milady, teen superhero who must lead the Mites on their Quest to save the Galaxy. Standing in her way are a colorful assortment of villains including the delightfully flamboyant Diva, Queen of Innerspace and her Banshee warriors. With the help of Space Punk, Eleanor learns to own up to the inner power she has always denied, defeating her foes and conquering the evil force of the “Cruelty.”

As you heard at the MPRA Town Hall meeting today, 3rd Act will be playing an integral part in the Performing Arts season for the upcoming 2010-2011 school year. The department will produce, as usual, its Main Stage Season, which this year will include the following shows:
Art by Yasmina Reza
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Dog Sees God by Burt V. Royal
Hair by Galt McDermott, James Rado and Gerome Ragni
Along side the Main Stage Season, 3rd Act will be producing, what we like to call, the Second Stage Season. We will have one show per quarter, starting with a musical in the Fall and two undecided projects in the Winter and Spring.
