Guys and Dolls

Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950.

It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards, including Tony Awards, Drama Desks and Oliviers. Frequently revived, the show has been done with numerous all-star casts, including productions/concerts featuring Ewan McGregor, Jane Krakowski, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Jessica Biel.

Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.

ADDAMS FAMILY

THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare:

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family– a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before– keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

ABOUT US

Audience of One Productions

OUR BEGINNINGS

Audience of One Productions began with the vision of having Broadway quality theatre available in Wilson County. Angie Dee, founder and director, walked into Capitol Theatre and envisioned talented young actors performing Broadway shows on this remarkable stage. With a dream and the help of the Holy Spirit, Angie began to take flight with launching Audience of One’s first production 2015 Into the Woods followed by sold out productions of Beauty and the Beast and A Christmas Carol Musical 2016.  The summer of 2017 was a huge success with our first Jr. Show: Peter Pan Jr. Broadway version followed by the outstanding 10 show run of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers!  Our busy 2018 season of shows included Singin’ in the Rain, Little Women, Seusical Jr, West Side Story,  Mary Poppins, She Loves Me, Newsies and A Christmas Carol Musical.  With another amazing year in the books, we are working hard in preparation for You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown and many more shows to follow.

The greatest Christmas gift that I ever received was in 2015.  Bob and Pam Black asked me to join Capitol Theatre as a full time director.  Audience of One Productions was just in the infant stages as a company and I could not imagine being anywhere else but on the stage at Capitol Theatre.  The marriage of our companies was such a beautiful gift that felt otherworldly.  I remember each time I walked into the space feeling an overwhelming love and presence that moved me to tears.  By the way, I still feel this way all these years later.  Bob and Pam have become like family to me and I treasure their friendship and am forever grateful for the trust of this treasure of a theatre.  We put on Broadway shows, year after year, season after season, show after show… and the feeling I had Christmas 2015 still feels fresh.  I am in a space that has an open heaven over it.  I am in a space that kids come to and learn about so much more than theatre skills… they learn how to love themselves,. See themselves through the eyes of Christ…how to see others through those same eyes and we create something bigger than one person.  We are able to create art with an incredible team of artist, music directors, and choreographers, costumers, set designers, builders, and crew and now have an immense capacity to continue to grow with the help of generous sponsors.  It all began with the gift of trust from Pam and Bob Black … it all began with a dream… I am forever thankful.
