Theatre for Scandal

THEATRE FOR SCANDAL is a comedy loosely inspired by Sheridan’s School for Scandal. It involves a group of actors who begin to spread rumors that one of the most flamboyantly gay members of their group is secretly straight. Anthony Hamilton, played by Stephen Poer last seen in The Last Days of Oscar Wilde, plots to wreak vengeance on a macho stud (Aaron Ramos) who has betrayed a female friend.

Everyone gossips, especially Jacosta (Greg Hinojosa) but in the theatre world it’s amplified. Rumors and scandal can sometimes be fun, but at whose expense? Ultimately, you never really know what’s true or false, so sometimes it’s best to be silent.

The show has a handful of ATAC award-winning actors, educators, and directors. Cortez is a founding Company member of The Magik Theatre, former Artistic Director of the Cameo Theatre and current head of Killer Productions producing murder mysteries. Multi-award winning Director, Greg Hinojosa has had a long standing association as Artistic Consultant for the Magik Theatre and is the former Artistic Director of the Woodlawn Theatre. Jose DeHoyos, who plays the Tin Man, is an Adjunct Professor at San Antonio College and is the Fine Arts Program Coordinator at Southwest ISD. “Having talent like this is perfect for this type of comedic show”, Erwin said.

The show is the third of productions by Bernard J. Taylor planned at Woodlawn Pointe (directly opposite Jefferson High School). The show will be presented in the Auditorium which seats 300. Woodlawn Pointe is located in a very pleasant neighborhood with easy parking.

Practically enslaved and in rags, the boobalicious Sinderella lives with her wicked stepmother and two jealous stepsisters who try to keep her from attending the royal burlesque ball at Pink Taco Palace. Although her fairy godmother magically makes her wish of going to the ball come true (“A twerk is a wish your booty makes!”) and helps her to win the heart of the “shagalicious” Prince Charming, who’s having trouble with his glass zipper, the beautiful Sinderella must face the wrath of her stepfamily when her godmother’s magic spell wears off at midnight. This comedic burlesque fairy tale reminds us that a good girl is just a bad girl who’s never been caught.CocoPurple

Backstage at Oz

OzWebHeader

This comedy musical follows the backstage antics of a group of six actors and a director who are taking part in a stage production of The Wizard of Oz. There is a pompous Shakespearean actor who thinks his role as Oz is beneath him, a nervous drunk playing the Cowardly Lion, a practiced extrovert playing the Tin Man, a sharp-tongued cynic playing Glinda the Good Witch and a more easygoing actress playing The Wicked Witch. Glinda and the Wicked Witch are in a relationship.  The Pollyanna nature of the actress playing Dorothy fits the part even though her breasts are too large for the role. All pull together after the Munchkins go on strike demanding bigger pay for little people. There are 10 songs.
