Saline Area Players have been actively working on their upcoming season.  They are pleased to announce that they have created a season with a little something for everyone. 

 In an annual tradition, SAP will entertain guests at the Rentschler Farm during their Harvest Days on October 2.  Shows will be at 1 & 3:30 and highlight SAP through the ages.  The show is an original production and those interested in joining in can come to auditions on September 8 at Liberty School.

During November 3-6, SAP will present a “Carol Burnett” show which will feature funny sketches from the TV show.  The Players created a similar production 5 years ago and it was a rousing success.  Auditions for adults will be in the fall.  The show will be performed at Fifth Corner.

December marks another SAP tradition.  The holiday show this year will be “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” written by Barbara Robinson.  The show dates are December 1-4.  Kara Cardella directs as she did the first time SAP performed it.  Actors of all ages are welcome to audition.  Auditions will be sometime in October.

In the spring, final date still being negotiated, SAP will perform the musical Oliver by Lionel Bart.  This show, based on the novel by Charles Dickens, is a favorite among audiences and tells the story of the orphaned Oliver Twist as he navigates the streets of London, encountering the underworld of theft and violence, while searching for a home.  He encounters Fagin, who runs a pick-pocket operation, his disliked sidekick Bill Sykes, and the warm-hearted Nancy.  Actors of all ages are encouraged to audition! 

Full information is available on the SAP website at www.salineareaplayers.org.  Frequent updates and behind-the-scenes info are available on SAP’s facebook page.

If you are interested in working on any of these shows, for example building sets, painting, sewing costumes, finding props, assistant directing, etc, please send an email to [email protected] with your interests.
