Anchorage Community Theatre
ACT's 2014 - 2015 Season

Anchorage Community Theatre is pleased to announce of six great plays. We sell individual tickets as well as season tickets (see six shows for the price of five) and punchcard/passes of 6. See below for details.

 

star I Hate Hamlet

by Paul Rudnick: August 22 - September 21

Directed by Colby Bleicher

produced by special arrangement with with Dramatist Play Service, Inc

 

A young and successful TV actor relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment. His television career is in limbo. Now the actor is offered the chance to play Hamlet onstage, but there's one problem: He hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore's ghost, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. The contrast between the two actors, the towering, dissipated Barrymore whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time, and Andrew Rally, hot young television star, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment.

Bell, Book and Candle

by John Van Druten: October 10- November 2

Directed by David Flavin

produced by special arrangement with Dramatist Play Service, Inc

 

Gillian is one of the few modern people who can actually cast spells and perform feats of supernaturalism. She casts a spell over an unattached publisher, partly to keep him from a rival and partly because she is attracted to him. He falls head over heels in love with her at once and wants to marry her. Witches, though, cannot fall in love, and this small imperfection leads into a number of difficulties. Ultimately, the lady breaks off with her companions in witchery, preferring the normal and human love offered her by the attractive publisher. But before the happy conclusion of the romance, Gillian comes very near to losing him—but does she?

star Christmas Belles

By Jones, Hope & Wooten November 21 - Dec 21

Directed by Don Gomes

produced by special arrangement with Dramatist Play Service, Inc.

 

At Christmas in the small town of Fayro, Texas, the Futrelle Sisters are not in a festive mood. Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins. Twink is in jail, and hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb's Christmas Program from spiraling into chaos. But it’s not promising – the cast is dropping like flies due to food poisoning.

There’s more! Frankie lets slip a carefully guarded family secret. All hope for a successful Christmas program seems lost. But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget!

Crimes of the Heart

At the core of this tragic comedy are the three MaGrath sisters, Meg, Babe, and Lenny, who reunite at Old Granddaddy's home in Hazlehurst, Mississippi after Babe shoots her abusive husband. Past resentments bubble to the surface as they're forced to deal with assorted relatives and past relationships while coping with the latest incident that has disrupted their lives. Each sister is forced to face the consequences of the "crimes of the heart" she has committed. Their reunion causes much joy, but also many tensions.

The Trip to Bountiful

by Horton Foote February 27 - March 22

Directed by David Block

produced by special arrangement with Dramatist Play Services, Inc.

 

Carrie Watts is forced by circumstances to live with her daughter-in-law who hates her and a loathsome son who does not dare take her side. Set in 1947 Houston, the unhappy family lives in a small apartment. Carrie dreams of returning to Bountiful, where she was raised. She eventually runs away and travels there by bus.

Upon her arrival, Carrie sees that Bountiful is now a ghost town of empty ruins and dilapidated shacks. It doesn't matter, though: she sees Bountiful just as it was when she left it, and for the first time in years she is truly happy and at peace with herself.

A Day in Hollywood, A Night in the Ukraine

by Dick Vosburgh & Frank Lazarus April 10 - May 10

Directed by

produced by special arrangement with Dramatist Play Services, Inc.

 

The first act, A Day in Hollywood, is a revue of classic Hollywood songs of the 1930s performed by singers and dancers representing ushers from Grauman's Chinese Theatre. It includes a number where the “famous feet” of movie stars are the only parts of them seen in a dance routine. The second act, A Night in the Ukraine, is loosely based on Anton Chekhov's one-act play The Bear, and is presented in the style of a Marx Brothers movie.
Lots of merriment, memories, and movement!
