“AGATHA ON THE RISE” ON THE HORIZON!
Whatever is a lovesick sleuth to do when mayhem is on holiday? Hilarity ensues when a famous Brit detective navigates the comical conundrums posed by a mercenary maid, marriage hopping ex-husband and nettlesome neighbors. And when the mysterious murders begin and the best suspect is a bowl of figs, prepare yourself for a rollicking whodunit that can only be solved by the intrepid “Agatha on the Rise”.
Agatha on the Rise is in rehearsal now; a small, dedicated group is hard at work to bring this World Premiere comedy to life. Written by local playwright Sally Stember and directed by Sarah Ominski, the show opens July 10, playing through July 26. Come support the production which is the selection from Page to Stage III last October!
PAGE TO STAGE IV is now accepting script submissions! Sharpen your pencils and your scripts – our team of readers are eager to see your work! Details here:
The performance is Saturday, October 17th.
Coming Saturday, July 25 and including a performance of Agatha on the Rise…..our first Summer BBQ Benefit! We thought that with the hot weather coming, it would be a perfect setting for a classic outdoor BBQ! Complete with (among other goodies), hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, drinks, and live music, there will be silent auction items in the lobby, (gift baskets, service and product gift certificates) and a few bigger ticket live auction items just before the performance.
Finally, we’d like to bring to your attention an upcoming summer project which you can and should be a part of……
HART has received a generous grant from the Hillsboro Arts and Culture Council (HACC), to produce several mural-style banners. The project is currently titled The Community Banner Project: A Moveable Feast. These murals will highlight the Hillsboro community, history, arts and culture, and significant events and people. Here’s where it gets fun: you, the community, our patrons all get to have a hand in it. Literally – these panels will be painted by the public under the direction of a bona-fide muralist. They’ll be available at the Tuesday Markets and at the above-mentioned Summer BBQ, among other locations. We hope to have signatures from any and all who participate, with an unveiling tentatively in September. Stay tuned for more info and updates!
And to whet your appetite for shows to come, we’ve announced our 2015-2016 Season – A Change of Heart on the News and Events page! Let us know what you think…and mark your calendars now so you don’t miss a single show.
Curious about who is going to be taking the stage in our upcoming productions? You can see who was cast on the Completed Auditions page for each show – most recently, Agatha on the Rise. If you’d like to audition for one of our productions, check the Auditions Page for details as they’re scheduled.
