Upcoming Events in April and May @ PAX AMICUS THEATRE




The Castle on the Lake

23 Lake Shore Road

Budd Lake NJ 07828









Set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (Jessica Mortell), who is not sure whether or not she is still married; the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy (Laura Perez) dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, (Nancy De Rienzo); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee (Nicole Yori), who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M’Lynn (Cathy Reilly), whose daughter, Shelby (Autumn Menza), is about to marry a “good ole boy.”

Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad. Written by Robert Harling; Directed by Richard Boyer.

Please be prepared to sing a song from the show and to read from the script. Sides will be provided at audition.

Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie. It's 1985, and rock star wannabe, Robbie Hart, is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his own fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and, unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever. Book by Chad Beguelin and Tim Herlihy; Music by Mattew Sklar; Lyrics by Chad Beguelin; Directed by Richard Boyer.
