Last Romance

Gloria McCafferty and Bob Snyder as two people who--in the sunset years--find romance on a bench in a dog park, in ART's "The Last Romance."

A Repertory Theatre Announces Auditions for "The Christmas Tree Tells His Tale"--a January celebration following their successful performance of "The Last Romance" this past weekend.

"'The Lost Romance" is a fundraiser presented by A Repertory Theatre and St. Stephen's Church to benefit the Charles Winan Scholarship Fund, which is awarded annually to deserving graduating seniors from either the Banning or Beaumont High Schools.

Last year's recipients were Jennell Encizo and Isaias Jacinto, both from Beaumont High School.

Thanks to the generosity of those attending ART's production of "The Last Romance" on Saturday, Nov,19 and Sunday, Nov. 20, the fund was enriched with many donations from an appreciative audience.

In keeping with ART's tradition of doing plays to benefit worthwhile causes and charities, the theatrical group is once again gearing up for another performance. This time, the January production will celebrate the New Year of promises to come.

In answering a call for another performance, ART and St. Stephen's Episcopal Church announce auditions for "The Christmas Tree Tells His Tale." Performing this original play by ART's Artistic Director, Dr. Mary Kay Switzer, has become an annual tradition.

The cast calls for a female, age 14 or older ,male, age 18 or older, as well as actors to portray a father and mother of about 30 and up, and two children between 8-10 years of age. Debut performances are encouraged.

Auditions will be held at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church Meeting Hall on 225 East 8th Street in Beaumont at 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Reading material for auditions is provided. Singers of traditional Christmas music are also needed. So come, help a worthy cause, and have fun doing it!

Performance dates are scheduled for post-Christmas season as an extension of the celebration of the New Year in January.
