Behind the Scenes at The 1940’s Radio Hour!

Looking for volunteers!

We’re looking for adult volunteers for the production of the 1940’s Radio Hour. The time slots are quick, and the reward is tremendous. We need folks to staff the ticket sales table, sell flowers, and work the concessions stand. We could also use help with the Silent Auction on Saturday, November 17th.

Please visit the our Sign-Up Genius page and join us often as you can. Thanks so much!

noisesoff_1000x378_2Blake Stage Company will be performing Noises Off on March 24-April 1. (See below for dates & times.) Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On. This hilarious romp about the on – and off – stage shenanigans of a mediocre acting troupe is a tour de force of precise timing and comic ability.  Slamming doors, feuding actors, missed cues, girls in their underwear, guys in their underwear and errant plates of sardines are all part of the choreographed chaos.

  • Friday, March 24
  • Saturday, March 25

  • Friday, March 31

All shows are at @7:30pm

BLAKE STAGE COMPANY PRESENTS THE DROWSY CHAPERONE!

The Blake High School Stage Company will be presenting six performances of the 2006 Tony Award winning musical THE DROWSY CHAPERONE this November 13, 14, 19, 20, and 21 at 7:30 pm. The November 18th will be a 2 pm matinee presentation. The Drowsy Chaperone pays tribute to the Jazz-age shows of the 1920’s and the power those shows held to transport us into a dazzling fantasy and to lift our spirits in times of sadness.
Staff on the show besides Michael D’Anna as the Director, include John Ovington as the Technical Director, Mary Wagner as the Business Manager, and Harry Winter as Vocal Director.

Reserved Seat Tickets may be purchased online, and general admission tickets will be on sale at the door before each performance.

New Forms Posted for Ads, Contributions, and Shout-outs for Summer Shows

All forms and information discussed below is on our Forms page.

I have reformatted the ad form for Blake Stage Company.  Everything is on one form.  When you print these, please print the first two pages back-to-back.  That way, the ad/shout-out sizes are on the back of the main sheet.  The last page has two half-sheets, to be copied separately and used as a sort of receipt.  It will remind the advertiser/sponsor of what they gave us money for and how to reach us with questions or emailed artwork.

I have to warn you that the deadlines are quick.  The programs must be submitted to the print shop a week in advance and I need several days to put the program together before I submit it.  The other complication is that I will be awayJuly 12-20, so I will need to submit the Little Mermaid program before I leave, even though the show is a week later than Legally Blonde.  So, the deadline for all program materials is  Monday, July 6 for Legally Blonde, and Thursday, July 9 for Little Mermaid.  I’m sorry about the rush, but we might be more effective if we know we have very little time.

Also, I have compiled a list of people and businesses who have advertised in our programs over the past several years.  It is not complete, because I still have to finish grading exams and packing up my room, but it is pretty good.  I suggest people soliciting ads start with the people who have advertised with and donated to us in the past.  I’ll keep sending updated versions of the database as I continue to update it.  Please note that one tab is advertisers and one tab is sponsors.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the forms or the deadlines.
