Auditions – Dog Sees God

DOG SEES GOD

By Bert V. Royal
AUDITIONS will be held on Monday, March 27th and Wednesday, March 29th at 7:00 pm at Steamer 10 Theater, which is located at 500 Western Avenue in Albany…
When CB’s dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife.  His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and the rest of his friends are too inebriated to give him much solace.  But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of bullying, offers CB a peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits.  Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, and sexual identity careen toward an ending that’s both haunting and hopeful.
“A welcome antidote to the notion that the Peanuts gang provides merely a slice of American cuteness.”
– N.Y. Times
“Good grief!  The Peanuts kids have finally come out of their shells.”
-Time Out (New York)
Directed by Matthew T. Teichner

The Women

March 25, 31, April 1 at 8:pm – March 26, April 2 at 3:pm

NorthEast Theatre Ensemble Presents – The Women 

by Clare Boothe Luce

Written in 1936, The Women is a classic icon of the era- fashionable, funny and dark. When Mary Haines finds out that her husband is keeping a mistress, the younger more beautiful Crystal, she begins to learn what it’s like to stand up for herself.  In a climate clouded by the rules, gossip, and artifice of Manhattan’s high society, Mary and her companions search for love, friendship, and truth. Through fast-paced dialogue, cutting humor, and timeless wisdom the play exposes the simultaneously ugly and beautiful condition of womanhood.

The Women is directed by Suzanna Bornn* featuring Tressa Brooks as Mary Haines and Janet Hurley Kimlicko* as Sylvia Fowler. The cast includes Emily Fernandes, Shae Fitzgerald, Monica Hoh*, Cori Irwin, Lily Kimlicko, Emily Kosmaczewsk, Deborah Thorne Mazzone, Sheila O’Shea and Christina Reeves

Finish the Castle! Help meet the CHALLENGE!

Times Union Article – Castle 3-10-15

Help us meet The CHALLENGE!

Never judge a Book by its Cover – But we have a tired looking cover of weather-beaten Tyvek.   To make our exterior reflect the quality and cultural quantity of the performances taking place at the theatre, we have embarked on a Capital Campaign.  Now, Steamer No.10 has been given a CHALLENGE!  If we raise $50,000 we will be given an additional $50,000.  We are currently one-third of the way to  reaching our goal having raised $17,000 of the match.  We must do this.

Put Your Name on a Seat

For a contribution of $250, you can buy a seat at Steamer No.10, and place your name on it, or contribute in honor of a loved one.  You have up to 32 characters (including spaces) and a maximum of two lines.

Finish the Castle

Steamer No.10 Theatre spent its first century as a working firehouse and the past two and a half decades as the Capital Region’s Children’s Theatre.  Our goal is to continue to serve our audience of kids, parents, grandparents, adults, seniors, and neighbors.

Why we need the Castle

Issues:

  • Create a Lobby for the comfort of our Patrons waiting for a show;
  • Improved handicapped accessibility;
  • Improve lighting for the entrance;
  • Improve the ability of audience to find the theatre – a distinctive entrance to serve as landmark – our Castle;
  • Get our Audience in out of the wind, rain, and snow.
  • Better signage to help the audience find us, and let everyone know what shows are taking place;
  • Additional space for classes and meetings.

The Plan – A Capital Campaign of $300,000

1. Brickwork and Permanent Roof, Windows & Doors
2. Finish: Interior, new Concession Exterior Landscaping & railings
3. Update Theatrical Systems – Replace the 20 year-old (failing) theatrical lighting system, upgrade other systems
4.  Air Condition the theatre – we currently use noisy window units – we have already installed 75% of a built-in system.

Name the Castle

We have numerous naming opportunities for portions of the Castle such as the towers, drawbridge, etc..  Contribute a significant portion of the total Campaign and we will Name the Castle for you.

Our Mission and How We Achieve It

We want to get children, adults, teachers, grandparents…everyone…excited about theatre and the arts. Everyone should attend live performances with a burning desire to see more.

Steamer No.10 Theatre, Inc. is a non-profit, tax-exempt professional theatre creating shows for children and families. We produce  nine shows each year, with an emphasis on fairy tales, children’s literature and local history, reaching 12,000 to 14,000 people annually.

We have been dubbed the mad scientists of children’s theatre. We rely on audience participation, so no two shows are ever the same and we never know what will happen at any given performance. We take risks, but it’s worth it. That ‘expect the unexpected’ atmosphere is what makes us unique and enjoyable for parents and children alike. In the process we are getting the next generation hooked on the performing arts.
