Rapunzel, The Pantomime - Coming 2020

Yes, it is that time again. We are excited to announce that the 2020 SMP Dramatic Society Pantomime will be Rapunzel, The Pantomime.

In this hair-raising adventure, the evil witch Gothel has kidnapped Rapunzel, locking her in a tower for sixteen long years.  Dame Trixie Bouffant, Rapunzel's mother and the village hairdresser, has not given up hope that one day her daughter will return, and help comes from an unlikely source.  The king, who has tired of Prince Frederick’s immature ways banishes him from the kingdom, telling him not to return until he proves his worth as the “hair” to the throne.  The prince leaves, accompanied by Rapunzel's brother Frankie, his trusty valet, and this sets off a series of hil-hair-ious events as they stumble upon the tower, rescue Rapunzel and return to the palace.  Their proud moment is short lived, however, as Gothel and her dimwitted henchman, Curly and Bob, suddenly appear and steal her back.  Will love or evil win out as Dame Trixie, Prince Frederick, Frankie and a host of other characters rush to free Rapunzel once and for all? 

Join us in this traditional British pantomime, filled with action, gags, music, dancing and adventure.  Ian Sigurdsson will be directing and Corey Hollett will be assisting.  Grant Ritchey is the producer.

Audition Requirements:

Cold readings from sides. Bring headshot and resume.

Roles:

Marty (F 45-60) – the instructor of the adult drama class is equal parts down-to-earth and touchy-feely-new-age, with a passion for theatre and helping others that is tangible.

James (M 50-65) – Marty’s husband, a lifelong hippie and college professor of economics who is reluctantly participating in the class.

Schultz (M 35-50) – a carpenter, and vulnerable divorcee, a bit needy and trying to find his path and his footing in this newly single world.

Theresa (F 30-45) – a former Broadway actress who has just moved to this small town; outgoing, flirtatious, lost; positive energy is a cover up for the undercurrent of pain; a little out of touch.

Lauren (F able to play 16-17) – socially a bit awkward, a bit dark, reclusive and shy; has created a tough exterior which belies an inner kindness.

Synopsis:

In a small Vermont town, five strangers embark together on a six week journey in a creative drama class for adults. Each week, as Marty leads them through a few seemingly trivial games, quiet wars are waged, bonds are formed and broken, emotional wounds are nursed, and healing is finally, slowly, able to begin. A beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see, with hilarious detail and clarity, the antic sadness of a motley quintet.

The roles of Schultz and Theresa must be comfortable with onstage kissing. Theresa must be able to hula hoop. All actors must be able to comfortably get down on the floor and up again.

This is a non-equity, volunteer production.

SMP Dramatic Society

SMP is a community theatre group which operates out of St Martin's Parish Hall in North Vancouver, B.C., Canada. We produce a pantomime each January to spice up the post-holiday doldrums, a production put on by SMP members under the age of 17 (and mentored by more 'seasoned' members) in May, and other occasional comedy productions (Fawlty Towers in 2010, Little Grimley in 2014). We welcome new members who’d like to venture into theatre, whether on stage or as part of the production crews, and we strive always to have fun!
