Fall Drama


FALL DRAMA 2018 November 15 - 17 Auditions: 9/17 or 9/18 from 3-5:30 in the theater Cloud 7, by Max Wilk


THE STORY: Newton Reece, who has spent most of his adult life discovering new ways to take the flavor out of frozen foods, rebels. He decides that while he's still young he should take some time for himself to do the things he really enjoys—like playing his trumpet, and being with his wife and daughter. Mary, his wife, is less excited about this idea than Newt is. It's not part of the “proper suburban way of life” at all. But Sally, his teenage daughter, is delighted. Some of Mary's PTA friends are charmed by Newt, but the grocery and the bank cut off his credit immediately. Newt's boss is convinced Newt must have a better offer from another frozen foods firm, and he comes up with one lavish bid after another, in an attempt to persuade Newt to stay with the old firm. Through all this, Newt manages to straighten out the lives of a couple of unhappy neighbors, but will he be able to persuade his wife that everyone should be entitled to a little relaxation and fun - and a chance to follow a dream?
