Upcoming Production: "Nana's Naughty Knickers"
Bridget and her Grandmother are about to become roommates. However, what Bridget saw as a unique opportunity to stay with her favorite Nana in New York for the summer quickly turns into an experience she’ll never forget. It seems her sweet Grandma is running an illegal boutique from her apartment, selling hand-made naughty knickers to every senior citizen in the five borough area! Will Bridget be able to handle all the excitement? Will her Nana get arrested – or worse – evicted? Pierre Players presents Katherine DiSavino's "Nana's Naughty Knickers" on Dec. 9-11 and Dec. 15-17, with a preview performance on Dec. 7. Learn more.
Upcoming Audition: "The Best Man"
“The Best Man” crackles with the smart lines and situations inherent to the work of Gore Vidal. The political intrigues rampant in Vidal’s 1960 setting are strangely similar to the political intrigues of the present day. This darkly satirical drama finds two presidential contenders seeking the endorsement of an aging ex-president and explores how personal agendas can change the course of a nation’s destiny. Pierre Players will hold auditions for "The Best Man" on December 19, 2016, 7 p.m., at the Grand Opera House. There are parts for 14 males and 6 females. Performance dates are Feb. 24-26 and March 2-4, 2017, with a preview performance on Feb. 22. For more information contact Director Michael Pangburn at 605.222.9138. Learn more.
