At last we have found a new location!!
Play Nice is so excited to be part of the very nice neighborhood of Park Slope in Brooklyn, just 20 minutes by subway from downtown Manhattan, five blocks from the Atlantic Ave/ Barclays Center station, a stop on many subway lines and the Long Island Railroad, too. Having our own street-level theatre space 24/7 gives us more flexibility to schedule rehearsals and performances, do longer runs, and have room to build, paint, and store scenery, costumes, and props, and put up a curtain... so we will no longer be reluctantly minimalistic with our visuals or bringing them from place to place in shopping carts or taxis, like gypsies.
NOW HOLDING AUDITIONS FOR OUR NEW MUSICAL
Auditions are now being scheduled for all roles for our upcoming production which will be performed in late May and June ... We are seeking all types and all ages for the musical called....
The Three Little Pigs Buy a Brownstone in Brooklyn
... Yes, it's a re-imagined telling of that trio of fine swine and their houses and the wolf..... with some new characters, human and otherwise (and we'll consider some roles being shared and will have understudies if we cast someone who is unable to commit to all the performance dates).
So, what happened after that sturdy brick residence is no longer their home sweet home? Will they move to a new neighborhood?
Well, we did! And we are setting up at 89 Fourth Avenue and getting to know our Park Slope neighbors.
We are transforming a nice, big space to become the PLAY NICE theatre. But our goals and mission have not changed. We are still all about raising money for local charities (100% of the ticket income from the runs of our full musicals goes to worthy causes that are related to the themes of our shows). We are committed to presenting life-affirming, positive-themed original musicals, but with a sense of humor, accessible to kids and adults. Our casts are proudly multi-generational, encouraging cooperation and interaction among school-aged actors, those in their teens and adults from their early 20s through senior citizens. We foster a "family" atmosphere, enjoying a time to play and have interplay, not just rehearsing the play.
Our new season of shows will be announced VERY soon, with exact performance dates for our weekend matinees and other times. First, we are checking with returning actors about their availability.
But you can expect shows in May and June as well as the summer and then the fall and another winter, etc. Old favorites will be produced again, along with new material. And there will be concerts and fundraisers for our budget, the beginning of classes and tuition-based acting and music workshops (with scholarship programs, audition required). We are also generating income by letting others use our cool space by the hour when we are not using all of it, so PLAY NICE is looking for other nice individuals who need space for their meetings, classes, or shows.
