Audition Notice: Channel your inner-Liza


Just got this news over the ‘Wire’ that Runaway Stage Productions is still looking for a few good men and women for their upcoming production of “Cabaret” (now in rehearsals).

Performances are 2/29 (that’s a Leap Year Day!) thru 3/23, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of taking in a Runaway Stage production, let me assure you that from a community theater perspective- they are top-notch. Far and away, they are one of the best local theaters in the Sacramento area- and totally cleaned house at last year’s Elly Awards for their production of “Chicago.”

An Absolutely FABULOUS Press Release after the break

  1. I recently saw their production of All Shook Up. Great performance, but they interacted WAY too much with the audience. They took the play off stage and went into the audience at least three times in the play and it made for an uncomfortable environment for some of us. Hopefully they’ll stick with being on stage this time around.

    The acting and the singing are brilliant for a local production. Go and see this if you have the opportunity, but don’t be afraid to leave if you’re uncomfortable.


  2. Breaking the 4th Wall is a staple of RSP shows- it makes up for the postage-stamp sized stage of the 24th Street Theater; but in-the-audience dancing more than 3 times in one show? That does seem a little too in-your-face.

    I’m just glad they kept it all on stage during “Chicago.” With as little as everyone was wearing during that show, I felt more than a little uncomfortable being seated in such an intimate house. Had they broken the 4th in that production, I would have felt compelled to pay $20 for each number.


  3. Just a scheduling note— RSP is a very intensive group to do productions with, and require a large time commitment, otherwise I’d be trying out for them! 🙂
