Time after time where everything looked better in neon, people always looked Pretty in Pink and you could just about Say Anything, lived a young girl named Beauty. Beauty was the Belle of the ball in her town. She was smart, never afraid to speak her mind, but most of all, loved the music of today, the music of 2022. Everything was a sweet dream made of this, until she stumbles into a castle where a group of characters are trapped in the times of neon. Now the only thing left to do is go back to the future. 

 

We invite you to tease your hair while you release 99 red balloons and join all your favorite characters as we Rock You like a Hurricane in this classic fairy tale with a modern twist. APTC’s Beauty and the Beat reminds children young and old alike that inside each of us is the courage and strength to overcome whatever obstacles may come our way – especially with the power of love.

Pageant is a pageant. Judges selected from the audience actually vote and determine the winner who, therefore, may be different at each performance. The show takes its shots not by mocking the pageant from the outside, but by being one. The six contestants compete for the title of Miss Glamouresse (Glamouresse being a cosmetics company). Miss Deep South, Miss West Coast, Miss Great Plains, Miss Bible Belt, Miss Industrial Northeast. and Miss Texas and compete in evening gowns, talent, swim-wear and spokemodeling, plus the finalists answer actual calls from the Glamouresse Beauty Crisis Hotline.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges pins a father longing for the son he lost against a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.

 

To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top Forty score, augmented with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.

Unfinishedness
Music, Book, and Lyrics By: James Powers

Theatre [Untitled] Reading Series

NYC
Open Jar Studios - September 2022

Unfinishedness is a one-act musical comedy tackling the issues that many young adults find themselves in today. When life is suddenly halted and you are left wondering, “What do I do now?” In this world, we are introduced to Dude, a young person trying to become a writer. While he is trying to finish his song, many of the unfinished ideas, moments, and relationships from his life, in the form of three other actors, come to him and demand that he finish their part of the story first. In the process, we discover his own personal failings and feelings of inadequacy that have led him to this point in his life, as we journey with him until he ultimately learns to accept and embrace his own “unfinishedness.”
