About Miss Beth's Spotlight

Spotlight is a theatre program for youth ages 7 to 17 led by Beth Bonnabeau. The teen program is designed for high school and college students. It is underwritten by Brookfield Theatre to keep costs low and to make theatre education accessible to all.

Beth has been a childrens theatre educator/director since the early 90's. She received her BA in Theatre in 1989 from SUNY Plattsburgh where she served as President of Alpha Psi Omega, a National Theatre Honors Fraternity, and Vice President of the College Theatre Association. Beth discovered her passion for childrens theatre early. She taught and directed at many local theatres, schools and dance studios and is thrilled to be bringing her very specific skill set to Brookfield Theatre. Beth is known for creating safe spaces for children to express themselves and discover the joys of being part of a family of actors . . . a "no judgement zone" where young people are free to stretch their imaginations and creativity to the max!

All Covid-19 protocols will be adhered to by our fully vaccinated staff. Keeping everyone safe is our priority! For more information, please email: brookfieldtheatrect@gmail.com

The Revolutionists

Auditions

Brookfield Theatre announces open auditions for

"The Revolutionists"

by LAUREN GUNDERSON

directed by JARED REYNOLDS

AUDITION DATES: Sunday, Feb. 19 & Monday, Feb. 20 from 7 - 9 PM
SHOW DATES: April 21-May 7
Rehearsals will begin in February.

Auditions

Auditions are coming in February for "The Revolutionists" by Lauren Gunderson. All roles are open and all are welcome to audition. Actors cast in the show are expected to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (or show proof of medical exemption) by the start of rehearsals.

About The Show

Four badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution's Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelles hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity of 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It's a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection... That ends in a song and a scaffold.

Auditions will be held on Sunday, Feb 19 and Monday, Feb 20 from 7 - 9 pm at Brookfield Theater. Callbacks on February 23 if needed. Sides will be provided - more information coming soon!

Performances are April 21st - May 7th on Fri & Sat @ 8 pm, Sun @ 2 pm.

Casting the following roles

Olympe de Gouges: 38. Badass activist playwright and feminist. Theatre nerd, excitable, passionate, a showman. Widowed and never remarried to ensure her personal freedom.

Side for Olympe

Marianne Angelles: 30s. A badass black woman in Paris. She is from the Caribbean, a free woman, a spy working with her husband, Vincent. Tough, classy, vigilant, the sanest one of them all.

Side for Marianne

Charlotte Corday: 25. Badass country girl and assassin. Very serious, hardened by righteousness, never been kissed. Has a pocket watch she keeps checking.

Side for Charlotte

Marie-Antoinette: 38. Less badass but fascinating former queen of France. Bubbly, graceful, opinionated, totally unaware, unintentionally rude, and oddly prescient. Never had a real friend.

Side for Marie
