kitchen front120Kitchen Theatre Company's second show of the 2016/2017 season is Precious Nonsense by Rachel Lampert directed by Sara Lampert Hoover, on stage October 16- November 8.

Synopsis: It's 1939, and the Depression has reduced the Carter Family Savoyard from a thriving theatrical company to a troupe of four singers. When a theater manager insists that they perform a full version of Pirates of Penzance, anyone and everyone is recruited to make it happen. Precious Nonsense is a backstage/onstage, tour de force for seven players, packed with mistaken identities, romantic entanglements on the boards and in the dressing rooms and a do-or-die determination that gender-bending role-playing. Fun for the whole family. (Ages 7+)

The season will run from January to August, with auditions for middle and high school aged students to be held September 23-25.

"This is the 10th anniversary of R2P and we wanted to do something special," says R2P board president Lilly Westbrook. "Having Joey play a different role (other than director) is always exciting for our company members. We chose 'The Music Man' for the season because it's such a wonderful musical and having Joey play the role of Harold Hill seemed perfect. We are so pleased and excited that we can give our company members the opportunity to work alongside professionals."
