Directed by Lindsay Grandt

Big Deal Productions is thrilled to present 10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse as our spring in-person production at the Community Arts Center. This side-splitting show will be a treat for the whole family, and will come in very handy as it guides the audience on how to survive a zombie apocalypse (hint: sacrifice the weak is step number one).

Performances are scheduled for April 23 at 7:30 pm, and April 24 and 25 at 2 pm. A limited number of in-person tickets are now available for purchase. No more than 90 tickets will be sold for each individual performance. These seats will be assigned in a socially distant manner in our large auditorium that has a normal capacity of over 400. Tickets are available for a cost of $12 plus a $0.95 processing fee. All audience members (as well as the actors on stage) will be required to wear a face covering while inside the Community Arts Center.

Big Deal Highlights At Twilight

Music Direction by Kara Spector

Big Deal Productions is excited to present the first-ever Big Deal Highlights at Twilight! We are looking for talented young singers to perform in this outdoor, cabaret-style music performance at the Dan Schimmel Pavilion at Willow Stream Park on Saturday, June 26 at 7 pm. The production, featuring show-stopping solos and duets, and exciting small group numbers, will celebrate musical highlights from many of our most beloved recent children and teen productions. Auditions are open to all young performers currently in grades 3 - 12. Performers in grades 3 - 7 will perform favorites from past fall and spring children’s musicals, and performers in grades 8 - 12 will perform hits from past winter teen productions.

Auditions will be held at the Community Arts Center on Tuesday, April 27 in the evening. Performers should prepare a 60 - 90 second musical theater piece, and bring a karaoke-style accompaniment track on a device that can be connected to a Bluetooth speaker. Please note: Spaces are limited and filled on a first come, first served basis. All performers must secure an audition appointment prior to the audition date.  No walk-in auditions will be accepted.

If selected as a cast member, a participation fee of $85 will be assessed for all performers.  This fee includes expert musical instruction/coaching, a production t-shirt, and all necessary rehearsal materials. Rehearsals will be held on Monday evenings, Saturday afternoons, and occasional Wednesday nights at the Community Arts Center. These rehearsals will be conducted outdoors, with appropriate mask and social distancing guidelines in place. A copy of the production calendar is posted below for your convenience.
