“DAVID AND LISA”: A PLAY BY JAMES REACH
OLD STONE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
Weekends from June 10 – June 25.
See www.oldstonebend.com for specific dates and times of performances.
Set in the late 1950’s, David and Lisa is a play based on the classic film named by Time Magazine as the “Best American Film of 1962.”
The play follows David, a brilliant, handsome young man wracked by an intense psychosis, as he is taken to live and study at Berkeley Academy, a progressive school headed by the compassionate Dr. Alan Swinford who, along with his staff, dedicate themselves to watching over and treating severely troubled adolescents with respect rather than prejudice.
It is during his studies that David meets Lisa, a wildly fascinating girl haunted by troubles of her own. The play follows the unlikely love story that builds between a boy deathly afraid of physical touch and a girl controlled by two completely different identities, ultimately culminating in a message of hope and innocent love that comes to even those who may be written off as hopeless and helpless.
Join us as director Mary Kilpatrick brings theater-in-the-round to The Old Stone with a large cast of adults and adolescents from the Central Oregon community.
David and Lisa, a play by James Reach, is for everyone ages 9 to 90 and will have 10 performances on weekends between June 10 – 25.

6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Open auditions for Shore Thing Productions’ “A CHORUS LINE”, the TONY Award and Pulitzer Prize winning musical, will be held on June 27 & 28 from 6-9 p.m. at Pinckney Center on the Central Oregon Community College campus.
The public will be able to take a peek behind the curtain as “A CHORUS LINE” callbacks for audition finalists will be held at the Tower Theatre in conjunction with Bend’s First Friday Art Walk on July 1 from 6-9 p.m.
Shore Thing Productions’ “A CHORUS LINE” is being directed by Broadway veteran Michael Heaton, with choreography by Michelle Mejaski of Gotta Dance Studio in Bend. Music and vocal direction will be overseen by Eileen Heaton with Central Oregon Symphony Maestro Michael Gesme conducting a 19 piece orchestra. A centerpiece of the production will be the original Broadway costumes by TONY Award winning designer Theoni V. Aldredge.
“ A CHORUS LINE” focuses on an audition for a Broadway musical and is told through poignant, as well as humorous, stories shared by seventeen dancers who really want, and need, the job. Ultimately, only eight will be chosen. The stories, based on interviews with real-life aspiring actors are universal and are at the center of a show that is a powerful metaphor for all human aspiration.
“A CHORUS LINE” is an American musical theatre classic, having originally played on Broadway for 15 years and over 6,000 performances, that is a brilliantly complex fusion of dance, song, and compellingly authentic drama.
The music, written by Academy Award winner Marvin Hamlisch, includes such songs as “I Hope I Get It”, “At the Ballet”, “What I Did For Love”, “Dance: Ten; Looks: Three”, and “One”.
Shore Thing Productions’ “A CHORUS LINE” will be presented by The Tower Theatre Foundation as a part of the theatre’s popular Marquee Series. The production will open on September 16 and run for eight performances through September 25. Tickets for the show are currently on sale and available by calling the Tower Theatre box office (541-317-0700) or visiting the theatre’s web site (www.towertheatre.org).
