Side Show Auditions

Tuesday, Apr 17, 6:00 pm
Wednesday, Apr 18, 6:00 pm

Theater Arts Guild is proud to present Side Show, the musical live on stage October 5th – 20th, 2018 at the very fitting location of The Historic Lincoln Theatre (an old vaudeville performance theatre!)

Based on the true story of Siamese twins Violet and Daisy Hilton, who became stars during the Depression, SIDE SHOW is a moving portrait of two women joined at the hip, whose extraordinary bond brings them fame but denies them love. Told almost entirely in song, the show follows their progression from England to America, around the vaudeville circuit, and to Hollywood on the eve of their appearance in the 1932 movie FREAKS. With musical styles ranging from the vaudevillian “Stuck With You” to the sweepingly emotional “Who Will Love Me as I Am,” this gorgeous musical from the composer of DREAMGIRLS will touch your heart and tickle your funny bone.

In the Art Bar: Jo Jones

Jo Jones

After repeated visits to Skagit Valley, Jo Jones felt drawn to the region and decided to locate there to pursue nature, wildlife and landscape photography full time. Skagit Valley felt like coming home. Living in the Skagit Valley, she was a short drive away from the mountains, forests, and coast. The abundance of wildlife is everywhere. She was thrilled the first time she saw deer eating her Azaleas! She sent a picture of the tulip fields to everyone in California with a caption, “Look where I live!” She has a deep love for the Skagit Valley and feels blessed to be living here.

Meet Jo at an Artist Reception in our Art Bar on Saturday, April 7th from 2-5pm.

A Tony Award®-winning musical classic by Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine

Into the Woods reacquaints us with the most enchanting Brother's Grimm folklore, and characters that we not only adored in our youth, but also continue to pass on to our children today. Joining Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel and, of course, Little Red Riding Hood, is a childless Baker and his Wife. Of course, no fairy story would be complete without a Witch! 

These familiar tales are retold through a sophisticated, witty, and beguiling storyline with a musical score so dazzling, and full of dark comedic verse so clever, that many critics have hailed Into the Woods as "one of the few masterpieces of our time". Better still is that none of the important cautionary lessons about life's physical and moral hazards from the original Grimm's stories are lessened by this modern recounting of classic "happily ever after” fables. And that's only the first act!

In the Art Bar: Clare Tatarsky

I cannot remember a time when I did not make art. I grew up in a family where art was part of everyday life. My mother sewed clothing and dolls, my father made dioramas, my sister took fabulous photos, and my brother made stop action films. Art is still part of my daily life.

The paintings in this show combine my love of pattern with Doodles collected from a variety of sketchbooks.  The sculptures are mostly extensions of the creatures that appear in my paintings.

In the Art Bar: Addy Nydegger

"I didn't know I could paint until nursing school. I was recently married, living in a dark dreary basement apartment. Since I was too poor to buy wall furnishings, I decided to make my own. I sat down with a blank canvas and realized I could paint! Since then, I have experimented with different styles and techniques. I hand-mix all my colors from the primary colors: red, yellow and blue, along with black and white. 

I create whatever I think is beautiful, whether it be a portrait, animal, or even a single color. My artwork challenges me, giving me moments of clarity, frustration, and at times, euphoria. I thank God for my artistic abilities and for the precious beauty of the natural world around us."

Addy Nydegger is a registered nurse and proud Skagitonian. She and her husband Kyle have two perfect cats, and have had the opportunity to visit 49 National Parks. Alaska is next on their list.

Meet Addy at an Artist Reception on Friday, January 12th from 5:30-7:30 PM.

In the Art Bar: Bill Ball - Fireball

Bill Ball is an artist who constantly explores in all directions to find the path of the healing process in his creative work.  He works from a pure sense of artistic endeavor running fast and standing still with strong images and designs. He is open to whatever presents itself.

Bill surprises us with ideas we overlooked or never connected with. His courage in pushing the technical aspects of his media to express the raw ideas is inspiring.

"Meet the Artist" at a reception on December 30, 2017 prior to the showing of "Loving Vincent".  5pm to 7:15 pm
