GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS

By David Mamet

June 2 - 4 at 7pm and June 4 & 5 at 2pm in Stage Too   

Directed by Rob White

This scalding comedy took Broadway and London by storm. Here is Mamet at his very best, writing about small-time, cutthroat real estate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their share of the American dream. Revived on Broadway in 2005 and 2012, this masterpiece of American drama also became a celebrated film which starred Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin and Alan Arkin.

"Crackling tension… ferocious comedy and drama." - The New York Times

"Wonderfully funny… A play to see, remember and cherish." - New York Post

Winner! 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
Winner! 1983 Olivier Award, Best New Play
Winner! 1984 New York Drama Critics' Circle, Best American Play
Winner! 2005 Tony Award, Best Revival of a Play

NOTE: EXTREME ADULT CONTENT AND LANGUAGE!

 

How to find STAGE TOO:

The best way to find STAGE TOO is to enter the alley between PCA and the merchants on Cortez St between Willis and Sheldon. From the alley, Murphy's is on the far left (south) and Peregrine is on the far right (north).  Walk through the alley until you arrive at STAGE TOO, one door to the south of the freight entrance to Peregrine Books.  There will be signage to mark the location.

PCA is very grateful to Ms. Judith Hardes and to the Prescott Lowes for their generosity which is assisting PCA with making Stage Too possible.  PCA is also extremely appreciative to all of our AMAZING volunteers who have put in many hours and lots of physical labor making Stage Too a viable space for performers, students, and patrons.

PRESCOTT SUMMER REPERTORY

2016

Lunacy, Love & Laughter!

JULY 8TH-AUG 14TH

The Rainmaker

by N. Richard Nash

Director – Catherine Miller Hahn

 

With a touch of the poet and couched in homespun language with down-to-earth humor, The Rainmaker guarantees to bring plenty of smiles and laughter as it weaves its magical tale of what we want and need to hear about hope and human nature.  The Curry family is wilting under the dry Western heat when a traveling rainmaker with a smooth line of talk sells them a promise of renewal and refreshment in the form of rain that will end the current drought.  Sure, he’s a phony, but he’s a true believer in the power of optimism to water dry souls. We learn alongside Lizzie, Pops, Noah and Jimmy that “once in your life you gotta take a chance on a conman.”  Only militant idologues will fail to catch his drift.  Such parched people should really stay home and coddle their resentments, because everybody else will love The Rainmaker! 

 

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare [Abridged] Revised

(also known as The Compleat Wrks of Wllm Shkspr (Abridged))

by Adam LongDaniel Singer, and Jess Winfield 

Director – Bruce Lanning

 ime to parody the plays of William Shakespeare.  The entire canon are performed in comically shortened form by only three actors.  The fourth wall is nonexistent as these actors speak directly to the audience where some scenes involve audience participation!  There are common references to pop culture, local people and places.  Each performance can be vastly different from another when this high-speed roller-coaster of a show condenses all of Shakespeare’s plays in 90 minutes. This production is not recommended for people with heart ailments, bladder oblems, inner-ear disorders, outer-ear disorders, Shakespearean scholars, degrees in Elizabethan history and/or people inclined to motion sickness!  Don’t miss The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged!

 

 

The Good Doctor

By Neil Simon

Director – Paul Epoch

 

Neil (Doc) Simon began his writing career in television and established himself as our leading writing of comedy by creating a succession of Broadway hits.  The Good Doctor is vintage Simon featuring 11 vignettes, hilarious and heart- warming, as they put a twist on short stories written by Russian playwright Anton Chekov.   Individually the scenes are remarkably original as the character of the Writer (that some critics believe is Neil Simon’s vision of Chekov himself) narrates and bridges the scenes and also appears some of them.  Delightful fun, and if you are a Neil Simon fan, you will love The Good Doctor.
