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.

Performances: Aug 17-26, 2017 at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

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.

Backstage at Oz


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.

Edgar Allen Poe’s “Nevermore”

Take a dark and mysterious journey into the life of Edgar Allan Poe. This imaginative musical uses Poe’s poetry and short stories as its base and his shifting obsession with the women in his life as its catalyst. With hauntingly beautiful melodies, “Nevermore” breathes new life into Poe’s work and explores a twisted true-life tale that is as bizarre as his classic stories of the macabre.


Aria Creative Productions and Texas Light Opera in association with the Roxie Theatre, will present “Edgar Allan Poe’s NEVERMORE,” a bio-drama on the master of macabre himself. This musical is a dark and romantic portrayal of Poe’s life, told thru a series of dream-like vignettes that take the audience on a whirlwind thru his life, as well as presents ten of his most brilliant poems as musical numbers, including “Evening Star,” “Annabelle Lee,” and “The Raven.” This production will be the Texas premiere of this musical. The cast includes Catie Carlisle, Morgan Clyde, Nicole Erwin, Erin Polewski, and Sharon Newhardt. Joseph Urick plays Edgar, as well as directs.

Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an early Romantic American writer best known for his dark poetry and chilling short stories. He is one of America’s literary pioneers, as he popularized the short story, and is often credited to pioneering the detective genre, which even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle drew inspiration from for his iconic Sherlock Holmes tales. Most importantly, Poe was the first established American writer who tried to earn his livelihood through his writing alone, which resulted in crippling financial difficulties, and a tumultuous career as an editor and critic.

The production is featured at the Roxie Theatre, which offers a unique 360<sup>o</sup> experience for its audience. “We want the audience to experience something very new,” says TLO Executive Director, Nicole Erwin, “and having this kind of non-traditional musical told on a traditional proscenium stage simply would not have worked for us. The beauty of the Roxie is in its malleability, giving us opportunities for new and exciting staging. This means you’ll be seeing actors not only in front of the audience, but up in the rafters, intermingling in the aisles – really inviting the audience into this weird, twisted world of Edgar Poe.”

“The musical is not a biography,” Urick said, “it is a romantic memory, so it’s incredibly biased, as we only see the story thru Edgar’s eyes; but it is the women who haunt him that remind him and us that his life is not quite as we would like to see it. And that, to me, is what is most important about this piece. It allows us to humanize this literary icon and us understand why he wrote the way he did.”

While the play is about Edgar’s life, it is the women who are the most prominent feature. The ladies of this cast include Catie Carlisle as Virginia. Catie has been seen most recently in productions around San Antonio including “Locolobo” at the Overtime, and “Born Yesterday” at the Classic. The Whore is played by Morgan Clyde, who has won ATAC Awards for her performance of Katherine in “Taming of the Shrew” (Classic Theatre), and her fight choreography for “Born Yesterday.”  As Edgar’s young sweetheart Elmira, Erin Polewski joins the cast after having played Rose in “The Secret Garden” at the Emily Ann Theatre in Wimberley, TX and Rachel Brown in “Inherit the Wind” at the Circle Arts Theatre in New Braunfels. TLO Executive Director, Nicole Erwin portrays Elizabeth Poe, Edgar’s Mother.  Nicole has been featured on many San Antonio stages, and most recently portrayed Claire Holmes in “The Secret Garden” and The Wardrobe in “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast,” at The Playhouse San Antonio. The role of Muddy (Maria Clemm) will be played by Sharon Newhardt whose recent credits include “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and “Mary Poppins” at The Woodlawn Theatre. Lastly, Rebecca Trinidad returns to the theater scene as the show’s Co-Director after overcoming her battle with cancer. Rebecca is the creator and driving force behind “Broadway Nights” at The Woodlawn Theater. Notable performances include “Funny Girl” at The Playhouse San Antonio and Jack’s Mother in “Into the Woods” at The Woodlawn Theater. She also recently directed the highly acclaimed “Memphis” at The Woodlawn Theatre.

An important note: This musical shares a name with another, also called Nevermore, also about the life of Edgar Allan Poe. This production is not “Nevermore: The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe.”

This production is not recommended young children, and contains mature situations. The running time is 2 hours and 15 minutes with intermission. Music Direction is by Darrin Newhardt, Set Design by Jonathan Pennington, Lighting Design by Tim Kelleher, Costume design by Rose Kennedy and Sound Design is by Charles Drew.

Performances are April 6-15, 2017 at 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays

The Last Waltz

The Last Waltz: A play about Alzheimer’s by Bernard J. Taylor

Directed by Nicole Erwin

Aria Creative Productions in association with The Overtime Theater, present “The Last Waltz”, a play about those who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and the loved ones who care for them.

The play by Bernard J. Taylor tells of a doctor who commissions a composer to create a piece of music as an anniversary present for his wife, who is suffering from early onset Alzheimer’s. Music is one of the few things that seem to give her peace and joy. In the beginning we see the doctor committing some highly questionable acts on his wife but his motivation becomes clearer in his discussions with the composer. After his wife dies, the doctor has a life changing experience.

Four leading San Antonio actors have been cast in the roles: Greg Hinojosa, Artistic Consultant for the Magik Theatre who recently won an ATAC award for his performance in Born Yesterday at The Classic Theatre, will be adding almost 20 years to his real age to play the Doctor; Whitney Marlett, who delighted audiences with her recent performance in Jackson Square at the Overtime, plays his afflicted wife; Kathy Feinstein, ATAC Award Winner for Blythe Spirit, plays the loyal Nurse; and Torence B. White, local favorite of Queen’s Castle at Overtime Theater, plays the Composer.

Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that destroys memory and other important mental functions. It is irreversible and slowly destroys thinking skills and eventually the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. In most people with Alzheimer’s, symptoms first appear in their mid-60s. Estimates vary, but experts suggest that more than 5 million Americans may have the disease.

lastwaltzA talkback with the cast will be held after the show on Sunday, Jan 15. A representative from The Alzheimer’s Association of San Antonio ( will be available to answer audience questions and provide helpful resources. A silent auction benefiting the Alzheimer’s research will be held on opening night, Jan 13, and will feature paintings from the Playwright and other artists. The theater will also accept donations for the organization. The production is dedicated to Ron Casola, Director of The Live Oak Singers.

Performances: January 13-22 

Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m.; Sundays at 3 p.m.

The Lady of Shalott

Playwright(s): Bernard J. Taylor
Helen, a professor of literature long settled in a relationship with her former tutor, is visited by a former student, Elliott, who has achieved considerable success as an author. There is immediate tension between Helen and Lloyd, the professor she lives with but has never married. Lloyd senses that there is a strong attraction between Helen and Elliott and feels that the raw animal energy of Elliott could overwhelm and destroy Helen. Elliott, meanwhile, sees Helen as someone who has been stifled, robbed of any passion and spontaneity, by the rigid regime imposed upon her by Lloyd, who has been the primary influence on her since she was his student. It soon becomes evident that something happened between Helen and Elliott at a literary conference they had both attended without Lloyd some time earlier – something that left Helen highly unsettled, but which she is reluctant to discuss. Then everything explodes into the open with unforeseen consequences. The play features music taken mainly from two symphonic works, “Passion’s Progress” and “The Millennium Suite”.
