CAST Delivers a "Beauty"-ful Season Closer: "Beauty & the Beast" at the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre

In the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s ingenious new production of Beauty & the Beast, the first things to catch your eye are a small bench located stage right and a large screen – it’s nearly half the length of the stage – hanging upstage. On that screen is a rear projection of a rose, and it has a haunting, rough-edged quality; it looks like something that French waif on the Les Miz poster should be holding.

In Praise of the CAST Cast: "Don't Drink the Water" at the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre

Perhaps the biggest pleasure in attending an entire season of summer-stock theatre lies in the chance to see familiar faces in show after show. If a company’s actors have impressed you in the past, just noticing their names in a new program is enough to make you smile, and I’ve now smiled throughout four consecutive shows at the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre (CAST). By this point, I’m so happy just seeing Katherine Walker Hill and Nicole Horton and Chris Amos and Craig Merriman and Patrick Stinson and Sandee Cunningham and Michael Oberfield and the rest of CAST’s 2005 ensemble that it barely matters what show they’re in; with actors this enjoyable, audiences are all but guaranteed to have a great time. (It’s a wonderful argument for remaining faithful to a theatre … and for purchasing season subscriptions.)

Play Ball!: "Damn Yankees" at the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre

In the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s production of Damn Yankees, the characters you might find yourself adoring the most aren’t the devilish Applegate, or the seductress Lola, or newfound baseball star Joe Hardy, despite the considerable talents of those playing them. They’re Joe and Meg Boyd, whose story sets the plot in motion, and who – as portrayed by Rob Engelson and Nicole Horton – provide the show with more cumulative emotional impact than you might be expecting. Horton isn’t on stage as often as some of her co-stars, and Engelson appears even less frequently, but their spirits hover over the whole production, and it’s not until the last scene that you realize just how much of Damn Yankees’ success rests on how much you like Joe and Meg.

Surprise! Clinton’s "Sound of Music" Is Full of Surprises

I hate The Sound of Music, but on some level, doesn’t everyone? The sugar-coated sensibility, the repetitive songs we know far too well, the Julie Andrews wannabes trilling with relentless cheeriness, the use of Nazis as a pesky, simplistic plot device … . I know that the show is an assured cash cow for producers, but many of us would be happy for the book and score to disappear until the show’s hundredth anniversary in 2059. (I’ll be dead by then, right?)
