Newnan's live theatre—for & by the community
Auditions for Godspell
Newnan Theatre Company is proud to announce upcoming auditions for the amazing Stephen Schwartz musical Godspell!
A small group of people helps Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.
Auditions for this show will be held Sunday, Dec 18, and Monday, Dec 19, at 7pm on the NTC Mainstage. Check-in will begin at 6:30pm.
The show will run March 9-12, and 16-19, 2017. Please come prepared to fill out a calendar of nights for which you will not be available to rehearse.
A Christmas Carol returns
NTC's classic holiday show A Christmas Carol returns this year, once again directed by its author/composer Dale Lyles.
There will be a twist to the story this year, Lyles says. Auditions produced a large group of little girls—and not a large group of adults—so he decided to make use of the actors in an innovative way.
Enlarging the scope of Dickens' classic, he and the cast have devised the story of Natalie Fairgood, a rather spoiled little rich girl who is having a sleepover for her birthday. She and her friends gang up on Jessica, and when Natalie's grandfather intervenes, they demand a bedtime story—a ghost story.
As it happens, he has one in his pocket. He pulls it out and begins to read: "Marley was dead..."
The boundaries of the present day and Victorian England blur until the girls are completely engaged by the power of storytelling and the lessons that Ebenezer Scrooge teaches us every year at this time.
Performances are Dec 1–4 and 8–11.
2016-17 Season tickets
2016-17 Season Tickets are on sale now!
More than just a ticket to every show...
At Newnan Theatre Company, our season tickets are a little different. When you purchase our season ticket, you actually purchase a set number of admissions. For example, our regular season ticket is good for 10 admissions - however you wish to use them. You could attend every show in our season once and use 10 admissions, or attend five shows and bring a friend to each one (5 x 2 = 10). This system offers you total flexibility in how you use your admissions, and you never feel like you have to see every show in our season lineup, just the ones that appeal to you!
Season ticket holders enjoy discounted admission, special reserved seating (with a chocolate on your seat!), and invitations to "members only" events and performances.
As an NTC season ticket holder, you also enjoy knowing you are supporting live theatre in your community. Season Tickets are a great gift for the theatre lover in your life!
