The Comedy of Errors, March-April 2014

Comedy-of-Errors-LGAnna DeVault directs Willaim Shakespeare’s hilarious play, The Comedy of Errors.

The plot of this play is exactly the kind of thing for which the term “madcap” was coined.  The humor has survived the many changes our culture has undergone since Shakespeare’s time.

This is one of Shakespeare’s most farcical comedies, with a major part of the humor coming from slapstick and mistaken identity resulting from the presence of not one but two sets of identical twins.  He was writing pop culture, and in some ways, pop culture hasn’t changed a bit in 400 years.

Performances Dates: March 28th, 29th, and 30th; April 4th, 5th, and 6th.

Times: Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 PM and Sundays at 3:00 PM.

Ticket Prices: Adults $14, Seniors: $12, Students $12 and Children $7
$10 Rush Tickets Available at Box Office 15 minutes before Showtime (mezzanine only).

You won’t believe the mayhem -and the fun- when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!

The Crucible, October 2013

2013-2014 The Crucible poster 3This production of Arthur Miller’s Tony award winning play, THE CRUCIBLE, comes to life on the Foothills stage with 20 actors from the upstate. Performed at Easley Foothills Playhouse in the historic West End Hall, October 17-27th and directed by Anna DeVault (The 39 Steps, Three Murders and It’s Only Monday, The Miracle Worker, Diary of Anne Frank, Much Ado About Nothing), the show features Dave LaPage (BJU’s The Comedy of Errors, Faust) as John Proctor, Elby Bruce (EFP’s Three Murders and It’s Only Monday, Gold Frankensence, Christmas Tree Ornaments and Myrrh, Witness for the Prosecution) as Elizabeth Proctor and Bethany Irwin (CU’s Jane Eyre) as Abigail Williams- creating the three pivitol characters of this drama. Here is the entire cast list…

THE CRUCIBLE, a historical play based on events of the Salem witchcraft trials, takes place in a small Puritan village in the colony of Massachusetts in 1692. The trials begin with a rumor. Some of the village young girls are caught dancing, among other things, in the woods and two of them become ill afterwards. Witchcraft is mentioned as a possible cause and as rumors often do, it grows until out of contol leading to tragic results-but ultimately, this is a story of forgiveness and redemption. A story that lingers in the mind long after the curtain falls.

A 1953 Tony award winner for Best Play, we celebrate its 60th anniversary this year. THE CRUCIBLE evokes a lethal brew of illicit sexuality, fear of the supernatural, and political manipulation, a combination not unfamiliar these days and probably why it contiues to facinate audiences today. THE CRUCIBLE is considered one of the most important dramas of the last century and continues to thrill and affect audiences today.

Production dates are October 17-19th (Thursday-Saturday, 8pm) October 20 (Sunday, 3pm), October 25-26 (Friday-Saturday, 8pm and Sunday, October 27, 3 pm. Tickets are on sale now. www.showtix4u.com or by calling the box office at 864-855-1817. $10 RUSH tickets may be purchased the day of show- while seats last!

Smoke on the Mountain Homecoming, August 2013

Smoke on the Mountain HomecomingThe season opener at Easley Foothills Playhouse will be “Smoke on the Mountain Homecoming”. The show is the third in the Sanders family saga, a series about a traveling Southern Gospel band that goes from church to church preaching and singing bluegrass gospel tunes. This part of the series is set in 1945 at the end of World War II.

It’s October, 1945. The war is over and America’s years of prosperity are just beginning. But there’s another kind of rite of passage at the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, where the Reverend Mervin Oglethorpe is giving his last service. Having been called to preach in Texas, he’s already bought a 10-gallon hat and is preparing to ride into the sunset with his wife June, who is eight months pregnant. Tomorrow morning, June’s brother Dennis will take over as the congregation’s pastor. Join the Sanders Family as they send Mervin and June off in style, with hilarious and touching stories and 25 fabulous Bluegrass Gospel favorites.

“Prosperity is just around the corner and from the vantage point of the 21st Century we can see the innocence that is now gone,” says the show’s producer Maurice Reed. “This play is full of fun, sometimes tetchy family dynamics and, best of all, some really good toe-tapping feel-good music.”

  • Written by Connie Ray, Alan Bailey and Mike Craver
  • Directed by Donna Duffie
  • Music directed by Amanda Gunter
  • “Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.”

Dates and Time: August 9-25
Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM Sundays at 3 PM

See How They Run, May 2013

2012-2013-See-How-They-Run

 

By Philip King

Directed by Maurice Reed

So swift is the action, so involved the situations, so rib-tickling the plot in this London hit that at its finish audiences are left as exhausted from laughter as though they had run a foot race.

Galloping in and out of the four doors of an English vicarage are an American actor and actress (he is now stationed with the air force in England), a cockney maid who has seen too many American movies, an old maid who “touches alcohol for the first time in her life,” four men in clergyman suits presenting the problem of which is which, for dis-guised as one is an escaped prisoner, and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings on and the trumped up stories they tell him.

May 31st-June 9th, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM.
