December 6 - 8 ~ The Majestic Theatre
Suzy has written music for two songs that will be featured in Santiam Christian High School's production of THE HYPOCHONDRIAC. This is some of her first original work to be performed on stage, and she is very honored to have been asked to arrange and teach the melodies to the students. Here's some more info about the show to further entice you to come:
A life of drama--A pretty girl is in love with the handsome man of her choice, but her ill, distempered father insists she marry someone else. It's a powerful problem. See who wins the war when you attend this pleasant play, THE HYPOCHONDRIAC, based on THE IMAGINARY INVALID by Moliere.
This famous comedy is terribly entertaining, filled with foolishness and farce, plus a touch of
tenderness and charming song tossed in. You'll want to enjoy an evening of comedy by Moliere.
See it performed at the attractive Majestic Theatre, 115 SW Second Street in Corvallis, December
6-8 at 7:00 PM. Tickets cost $8.00 adults, $6.00 students and senior citizens. Tickets are
available at Santiam Christian School Business Office, or in the lobby of the Majestic Theatre
starting at 6:10 PM on performance nights. See you there.
Aug. 24 - Sept. 15 ~ Pentacle Theatre
Her Majesty's Ship Pinafore is setting sail for the splash hit event of the summer!
Suzy is a member of the ensemble for this nautical comedy; she sings, dances, and giggles whilst wearing a hat & carrying a parasol. Need a bit more incentive to come? Well, you're silly - but fine. Here ya go:
HMS Pinafore is among the most popular Gilbert and Sullivan operas, perhaps because of its infectious tunes and generally well-constructed libretto. Drawing on several of his earlier "bab ballad" poems, Gilbert imbued HMS Pinafore with mirth and silliness to spare. The opera's gentle satire reprises and builds upon one of The Sorcerer's themes: Love between members of different social classes.
The gentlemanly captain of the Pinafore, who claims he would never swear at his crew (What, never?), does not know that his daughter has fallen in love with a common sailor serving on his ship. Meanwhile, the captain has arranged for her to marry the First Lord of the Admiralty, Sir Joseph Porter. Sir Joseph himself has risen from humble beginnings to gain his office by political acumen, despite having never gone to sea! And the captain himself fancies a poor bumboat woman. Fear not: it all works out in the end. Hip, hip, hoorah!

At First Sight
Sept. 23-Oct. 8 ~ Albany Civic Theatre
Suzy is stepping out of the limelight and is the Props Mistress (I know ... that sounds saucy -- but it's the PROPer title) ... (hehehe, see what I did there?) ... Right, props. Suzy will be working backstage for AT FIRST SIGHT by Annie Pie! ... Here's the synopsis [to further entice you in coming to see the show]:
At 51, Julia Goldman thought she'd done it all. Widowed for two years, financially well-off, with two grown children busy in their own successful lives, Julia found life routine and uneventful, and expected to ease into her sunset years.
Suddenly, "Life with a Capital L" hands her what is to become the biggest decision of her life; the sort of occurrence to which many a younger woman would hardly be equal. An accidental encounter in the cocktail lounge of a posh hotel with a man who sweeps her off her feet and then disappears leaves her with much more than just a fond memory.
Directed by Rebecca Douglas, this play is sure to provide the audience with an entertaining evening!

The 25th Annual Putnam county Spelling Bee
Feb/March 2011 ~ Albany Civic Theatre
MAY I HAVE THE DEFINITION, PLEASE?
Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser.
This hilarious musical tale of overachievers' angst chronicles the experience of adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. It's about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.
Spelling Bee opened on Broadway in 2005 to rave reviews and went on to win Tony awards for Best Book of a Musical and Best Featured Actor.
(If you missed your chance to shine in the spelling bee wars of your childhood, take heart: before each performance, a number of volunteers will be recruited to appear onstage as guest spellers!)
