Upcoming Events

Please check back often for details on the next scheduled camp.

 

The Elberton Arts Ctr is located at 17 W. Church Street, Elberton, GA 30635.  The director is looking to cast a mid-sized group of adult men and women ages 25-50  in this hilarious production.  Anyone planning to audition should drop in between 6PM and 8PM on either date and be prepared to read excerpts from the script for Director Ray Stowers.  Those auditioning should be available during most evening hours from Aug through early Oct. (Please note that 2 male roles will require a heavy Spanish accent.)  Performances of The Odd Couple (Female Version) will be held Oct 2-4 and 9-11 in the Elberton Arts Ctr.  This production is not part of the regular Encore Productions season.  No experience is necessary to audition!  The Elbert Theatre Foundation is a community theatre organization, and all acting roles granted are strictly on a volunteer basis – no paid roles are available.  

Show Synopsis:  Florence Unger and Olive Madison are at it again in this hilarious female version of a comic classic. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers, but the hilarity remains the same!  Come see the funny problems that arise from the two roommates who couldn’t be more opposite in personality and lifestyle.

Fruitcakes Open Read
Director Toni King will be leading the Open Reading.  FRUITCAKES will be the last show in the 2020 Encore Productions Season.  This event is very casual, free to attend and open to anyone!  Participants will be randomly assigned roles to read and the script will be read aloud from start to finish.  This is great opportunity to hear the story of the script and get a feel for the characters if you are interested in auditioning for this event in August.  Usually readings end around 8pm.

Encore Productions will be having auditions for the final show in the 2020 season Fruitcakes on Mon. Aug. 31 and Tues. Sept. 1 in the Elbert Theatre located at 100 S. Oliver Street, Elberton, GA 30635.  The director is looking to cast a mid-sized group of adult men, adult women and children/pre-teens around ages 10-12 yrs. in this holiday production.  Anyone planning to audition should drop in between 6PM and 8PM on either date and be prepared to read excerpts from the script for Director Toni King.  Those auditioning should be available during most evening hours from mid-Sept. through mid-Nov. 2020.  Performances of Fruitcakes will be held Nov 6-8 & 13-15, 2020 in the Elbert Theatre.  No experience is necessary to audition!  Please note that Encore Productions is a community theatre organization, and all acting roles granted are strictly on a volunteer basis – no paid roles are available.

Show Synopsis:    Mix together a batch of fruitcakes, some Christmas trees, 10,000 outdoor lights, a chicken pox epidemic, two southern spinsters, a lost cat named Tutti Frutti and a Christmas hog named Buster and you've got the recipe for a fun-filled and touching evening of holiday cheer.  Into this world comes Jamie, a kid who has run away from home and come as far as his money will take him.  At first, he thinks this town's inhabitants are "nuttier than fruitcakes" but soon he comes to admire, appreciate and adore this nutty little town.  A moving story of understanding and reconciliation, this show will leave you with a heaping helping of holiday warmth.
