Teen Ensemble Theatre
The Pioneer Valley is chock full of talented teenagers and young adults who come to the Red Door Theatre to hone their theatrical skills in productions chosen to showcase their talent. Be it a variety show, a musical or a drama production each project is chosen to give aspiring actors and actresses an opportunity to expand their acting skills and experiences, make lasting friendship and, most importantly, to have fun. Usually three shows a year are produced for the 12 to 22 year old group; one in the fall, winter and spring. Frequently there are other productions which incorporate this age group as well. One of the hallmarks of this program is our commitment to using family-friendly material.
TEEN SHOW: An Evening of One Acts!
Show Dates: March 29 and 30
Come join us as we present three comedies in one evening.
I Hate Shakespeare!
We hate Shakespeare! At least that's what the audience thinks until they get a rip-roaring rundown of Shakespeare's classics in a modern, comic form. With zombies, talking cows and an appearance from a famous talk show host, I hate Shakespeare! is a hilarious and fast paced introduction to Shakespeare with a modern twist. Plus, someone gets a pie in the face!
30 Reasons Not to Do A Play
Stage kisses, pinkeye, inciting World War 111-these are only a few of the many things that can go wrong during the production of a play. 30 Reasons Not To Do a Play presents the horrors and hardships that befall those who feel the call of the stage. In an uproarious series of examples, this play proves that drama is dangerous and should be avoided at any cost!
The Brothers Grimm: Out of Order
When brothers Jake and Will Grimm can't agree on a script, they end up in a fight-pages are swapped and plots intermingled- in short. It's a disaster! Jakes likes blood and guts, while Will likes fluffy bunnies. What's worse is the drama club has less then half an hour to put the show together for the principal who will decide if the club should continue to be funded. While Prince Charming is headed off to the Gingerbread Castle for a ball to meet his true love, the evil witch Cinderella,
other fairy tales get mangled along the way as the cast dishes out the entire works of the Brothers Grimm in six minutes and 12 seconds.
