Hello, folks. I'm starting this forum because a couple of people have e-mailed me about putting up notices for their local shows. At Manka Bros., we're pretty much a big theatre outfit (Gulag!: A New Musical opens July 15th in New York), but, we definitely support all the great talent and theatrical efforts being made in the sticks. So, let's hear what's going on.

If anybody is in Mansfield, Texas this weekend, this is your last chance to see Bells Are Ringing at the Main Street Theatre! It's a great show that the people here have worked extremely hard on. Anyway, hope you all get to see it!

Hello. I just wanted everyone out there to know that Bells Are Ringing has closed. So if you're in Mansfield, you won't be able to see that show, but there's plenty to around town anyway. Have a happy 4th!

Had to post this. This is from the Burbank Leader:

"Local Actor Returns to the Stage -
J.D. Hall, a 15-year resident of Glendale, has returned to the stage after a five-year hiatus to perform in "The Darker Face of the Earth" which through September 17 at the American Renegade Theatre."

Sounds to me like this guy just stopped acting. I don't think he's famous. I haven't done a show in 7 years. If I did a show could I get a mention in the paper that I was "returning to the stage"?

The show that we did back in July was a real winner for our theatre group. It's over now - but I will post future events here if you don't mind.

My community theatre is producing "You Can't Take It With You", and we are curious about a period reference in the script. The play is set in New York State in 1938, and the character, while trying to open a beverage bottle with an opener of some sort, says "Why they make these bottle openers for singer midgets I'll never understand." None of us has any idea what a 'singer midget' might be.

If I remember correctly, when we did this show someone found out that the Singer midgets was a popular vaudeville troupe of little people who performed across the country during the 20's and 30's. But unfortunately, I don't remember where they found that information. hope it helps.

You guys at Manka should figure out a way to more community groups to post and talk about their community theaters here.

I'm thinking of putting together a revival of "The Owl and the Pussycat". Who wants in?

I'm trying to think of ways to pump up the posts on the theatre boards and I think maybe if this topic - Community Theatre - can sort of try to bring together community theatres from across the country to talk about ways they run their theatres, sort of a tricks of the trade and promotional area. It would be much easier than say running their own message boards for their own theatre. Any thoughts?

I'm thinking of getting in a community theater production of "Our Town". Am I an idiot?

It may not be quality, but you will meet chicks. So that makes you not an idiot. Unless you're married and then you may be an idiot, but then again, you may want to get out of the house.

Thanks to all your "fascinating" response... NOT... I decided not to do the show. I just felt it wasn't what I was best at.

Did anybody catch that production of "Star Spangled Girl" at the Columbus Community Playhouse in Columbus, Mississippi last year?
