Looking for a few Good Directors
Night of Laughs Variety Show


Producers : Jerry Zimmerman and John Keller


These have been trying times for all including community theatres, but as the saying goes "The Show Must Go On."

We previously asked our patrons/fans/actors if there would interest in a variety show. We received an overwhelming positive response to this inquiry.  

We intend to produce this variety show when we are permitted to reopen or maybe even possibly performing at an outdoor venue (even if it in the parking lot .)  

The variety show will include 8 Carol Burnett skits with musical numbers before and/or after each skit.  

We are seeking directors for the following 8 skits:

1. The Wall Flowers - Cast of 4 plus
2. The Exterminator - Cast of 2
3. The Coffee Commercial - Cast of 3
4. Prison Nudge - Cast of 3
5. The Old Folks #4 - Cast of 3
6. So Proudly We Heal - Cast of 7
7. Divorce American Style - Cast of 4
8. As the Stomach Turns - Cast of 6

If you are interested in directing on or more of these skits, please email Encore at by July 6, 2020. Please include what skit or skits you are interested in directing and a brief indication of your directing experience.  If you would like a copy of the script to review, we can email a pdf copy for your perusal.  The production team will meet after July 6th to select directors and those directors will be notified around July 8th.  A meeting will be held July 15th for those selected directors.  


For those wanting to act or sing in the show, auditions will be held on July 21 and 22 beginning at 7 pm.  We will need to follow social distancing guidelines so further information will be coming as to how we will schedule individual auditions.  The audition dates will be for both actors interested in the skits and anyone wishing to participate in the musical numbers.  

Skit age range for actors is 18 and up.
Musical Production numbers age range is Middle School and Up (those under 18 will need parents' permission)

If planning to auditon for musical numbers come prepared with 30 seconds of a song. 

Fingers crossed that we can make this happen for late August and again, it may be at an outdoor venue.  

Thank you for all the response to our original interest email.  We will try to work everyone in who is interested so don't be shy and give it a try.
