Bright Star musical at the Winspear thru June 24th

Bright Star, book and story written by Steve Martin, lyrics and music by Edie Brickell is a lovely piece of musical theatre, telling a story of hope and the strength of love with songs played by banjo, mandolin, piano, bass, guitar and violin (on stage) and sung and acted by wonderfully talented singers and actors of this equity tour.  The story takes place in two time settings, 1923 and 1946.  We follow Miss Alice Murphy, beautifully played by Audrey Cardwell, over a 22-year span of time.  We first meet her in 1945, as an adult with a high-powered job as a magazine editor-in-chief but then we actually see her walk out of her shoes and turn into the young girl she was in 1923.  As we follow her story back and forth through time, we wait to see what truths she will know and how those truths will effect her life and the lives of others who were also involved.  The folk-flavor of the music is delightful and easy to listen to as the story musically unfolds before us.  Patrick Cummings as Jimmy Ray shows strength yet not enough to overcome his weakness when he learns the truth.  Lucy and Daryl, played by Kaitlyn Davidson and Jeff Blumenkrantz are so enjoyable in their scenes, you'll wish there were more of them.  Henry Gottfried as Billy Cane is the young writer in search of his voice, but what he finds enriches his life so much more.  Bright Star is playing at the Winspear through June 24th.  You'll be sorry if you miss it!!  The story was inspired by true events!

History, Goals and Services

What is S.T.A.G.E.?

S.T.A.G.E. (Society for Theatrical Artists' Guidance and Enhancement) is Dallas/Fort Worth's premier performing artists' organization. A membership organization, S.T.A.G.E. promotes the theatrical, broadcast, and film industries, serving as an information clearinghouse, and providing training and education in many facets of the entertainment industry in the North Central Texas Region.

How was the organization formed?

Leslie Evans-Leach approached P.L. Moore with the idea of an organization that would serve as a source of information for area theatrical artists. The idea was the result of frustration shared by local performers who frequently learned of auditions AFTER they had occured. Leslie and P.L. expanded their collaboration to include a small group of local performers, and in 1981, the Society for Theatrical Artists' Guidance and Enhancement was formed. With Leslie Evans-Leach as Executive Director, Janice L. Franklin as Managing Director, and P.L. Moore as President of the Board of Directors, S.T.A.G.E. opened its doors in an office building adjacent to the Esquire Theatre at the intersection of Oaklawn and Lemmon in Dallas, Texas.

What does S.T.A.G.E. offer?

  • Upon joining S.T.A.G.E., you will begin receiving auditions notices that contain information about upcoming film, theatre, voiceover, and other auditions all over the DFW area. We send email notices each week full of audition, class, and employment information as we receive it.
  • S.T.A.G.E offers 2 studio spaces if you are in need of a location to hold an audition. If interested in renting a space, just give us a call.
  • We have a script library with hundreds of scripts for our members to check out any time, along with perusal scripts of shows that are currently auditioning at local theatres.
  • S.T.A.G.E. has lists of casting directors, agents, photographers, and printers on hand for our members at all times.
  • Along with these lists, we offer many resume examples and resume consultations at any time.
  • Call S.T.A.G.E. to find out what shows are currently casting so you can peruse the script before your audition!

 

S.T.A.G.E.'S primary goals are...

 

  • To provide professional training with experienced working industry professionals in a variety of areas
  • To facilitate networking among artists, producers, and casting representatives
  • To provide a space where artists can convene for the purpose of rehearsal, study, class, and or camaraderie
