Silhouette Productions and The Shore Cultural Centre Auditions for "Annie Get Your Gun"

Annie Get Your Gun scored a bulls eye when it returned to Broadway in 1999, starring Bernadette Peters and sporting a revised libretto by Tony, Oscar and Emmy winner Peter Stone. As Newsday reported, Stone's revisions 'are sweetly ingenious, and the show is a dream.' Stone reshaped the 1946 book to create a Wild West show-within-a-show that frames the ageless 'Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better' love story of sharpshooters Annie Oakley and Frank Butler. Stone has added a secondary romance between the younger sister of Frank's bothersome assistant Dolly, and a boy who is (to Dolly's horror) part Native American. 'The book has been updated in ways that pass p.c. muster,' reported Time Magazine, 'without losing all the fun.' Joined to the new book, of course, is that amazing Irving Berlin score, featuring hit after hit after hit. 'Irving Berlin's greatest achievement in the theater,' wrote the New York Post, ANNIE GET YOUR GUN 'will always be a musical for the ages, one of the Broadway theater's enduring triumphs.'

Modeling, Charm & Etiquette for Today's Youth

B-Elite Modeling & Charm School recognizes the need for a program that builds self esteem in our youth as well as re-introduces etiquette. In today's world, one must be able to walk into a room and command attention. Whether it be in a board room, a courtroom or in a classroom, everyone needs confidence to do so. At the tender age of 10, my mother enrolled me in modeling and charm classes to combat my shyness. I am grateful that she recognized the need for me to participate in such a unique program that helped boost my self esteem. To date I have been an Educator, Youth Advocate, Radio Talk Show Host, MC, Runway Model etc. I believe that without my mother enroling me into that program, none of this would have been possible! B-Elite Modeling & Charm School will host a 10 week summer youth program at The Shore Cultural Center. Children, teens and adults will learn basic skills and techniques in runway modeling while building self esteem, self confidence and self awareness. Classes will be held every Monday from 5-6:30 PM beginning June 5th. The 10 week program will end the week of August 13th (Date TBD) with a Fashion Show Graduation. Each participant will highlight the skills and techniques that they've learned and each will recieve a certificate of completition. In the past mothers have joined their daughters, fathers have joined their sons and entire families have participated in this fun and unique program.

Strike up the Band, "The Music Man" is at Shore!

Silhouette Productions "The Music Man" arrives with a flourish at Shore Cultural Centre this month. This family friendly musical is about a fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall. This description is from Musical Theatre International, from whom special permission is granted to produce the show.

Lance King, who will be playing Olin Brit in the production, is looking forward to how this talented cast will present this very iconic show. He stated, “Audiences can look forward to an enjoyable show filled with music and laughter provided by the characters that live up to the creed "Iowa Stubborn". Harold Hill (Steven Schuerger) leads the audience and the River City townspeople down the path of gullibility straight to joy and of course love!" He goes on to say, "Silhouette Productions is a fantastic group that works tirelessly to provide quality performances that will entertain and delight."

"The Music Man", with book and lyrics by Meredith Wilson, is based on a story by Meredith Wilson and Franklin Lacey. The show is directed by Douglas F. Bailey II, Music Director Matthew Steven Grittner, and Choreography by Tara Mirabile.
