What a testament to have 53 years of wind behind the sails of community theater in our waterfront town. BOTTG produces two plays each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. Now entering its 54th year, the Solano County ARTY-award winning Benicia Old Town Theatre Group is introducing a new director for the spring 2018 season—Bay Area director Angelina LaBarre—who is taking the helm of the romantic comedy Coming Apart, by Fred Carmichael. LaBarre is also a professor of drama at Contra Costa College in San Pablo, Ca. Her recent directing credits with CCC include How We Got On, Exit, Pursued By A Bear, The Laramie Project, and The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare. Her local directing pursuits include the Fetterly Playhouse, Missouri Street Theatre, Darkroom Productions and Harbor Theater. She holds a BA from Sacramento State University and a MFA from Mary Baldwin University in Staunton, Virginia.
Want to try your hand at the stage? Two men and two women will be cast in the romantic comedy, and those auditioning will be asked to prepare a short comedic monologue. Auditions will be held Jan 16, 17, and 18 at the Benicia Community Center at 7pm, 370 East L Street, no audition appointment necessary.
The show runs April 20 through May 12. Online performance tickets will be available March 1. For more information, visit beniciaoldtowntheatregroup.com, 707.746.1269.
