SEASON

Fun for the entire family, Matilda, is a great family experience.

Matilda is the story of an extraordinary little girl with extraordinary powers. The daughter of abusive parents, Matilda finds refuge in library books, which she reads quickly and in creating her own stories. Things are no better at school, where Matilda also must face a tyrannical and cruel headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, who believes in Crunchem Hall’s motto: “Bambinatum est Magitum,” or “Children are Maggots.” She finds companionship in her teacher, Miss Honey, though well-intentioned, is shy and fragile. Brave little Matilda knows she has to stand up against the adults in her world, and in doing so, discovers her own remarkable powers. Matilda’s bravery teaches Miss Honey and her classmates an important lesson -- that even though life can be hard, “nobody but me is gonna change my story” so “sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty.

Into-the-Woods

Into the Woods October 2022 (Ages 10-Adult)

The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

One of Sondheim's most popular works, Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy. Designers will especially enjoy highlighting the fantastical elements of this magical word.

ABOUT US

Audience of One Productions

We are thankful to each of you for your love and support of this company. It is our honor and pleasure to bring Broadway level productions to the stage at Capitol Theatre.

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.

Our Growth:
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, Seussical Jr, West Side Story, and Mary Poppins. This incredible troupe continued to dazzle audiences in 2019 with She Loves Me, Newsies, Shrek Jr., A Christmas Carol Musical, 2020: You're A Good Man Charlie Brown, Guys and Dolls, Willy Wonka Jr., Sound of Music. Our anticipated 2021 season will be the best yet to come!

Our Calling:

Audience of One Productions is a community group of actors collaborating in the arts to express one heart to do all things unto Him.
Director Angie Dee

 

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.
