Playwright at Your Side: St. Ambrose Student Aaron Randolph III Authors Two Wintertime Productions

Cody E. Johnson, Stacy Phipps, and Tim Stompanato in Dakota Jones & the Search for AtlantisEvery year, St. Ambrose University’s theatre department produces four mainstage shows over the nine months that school is in session. It’s somewhat surprising, then, that given the myriad authors to choose from, the university opted to reserve half of the slots in its 2011-12 season for works by a single playwright.

Yet what’s more surprising is that the author in question isn’t one of the usual theatrical suspects – Shakespeare or Williams or O’Neill. Rather, it’s St. Ambrose student Aaron Randolph III, a 32-year-old pursuing additional degrees after graduating in 2002 from the school’s music department. His family musical Dakota Jones & the Search for Atlantis will be staged in the university’s Galvin Fine Arts Center December 3 and 4, and his comedy The Plagiarists runs February 24 through 26.

Much Ado About Many Things: Spring Theatre in the Quad Cities and Surrounding Areas

The Prenzie Players' Much Ado About NothingThe Quad Cities' spring theatre season will be bookended by Shakespeare, with the March 6 opening of Much Ado About Nothing, and Sophocles, with the May 28 debut of Oedipus Rex. But just because these plays are, respectively, more than 400 and 2,400 years old, it probably isn't wise to enter them expecting the expected. This Sophocles, after all, is subtitled The Audacity of Oed, and this Shakespeare is being staged by the Prenzie Players, so in both works, you may as well expect anything to happen; considering our lineup also features titles by Stephen Sondheim, Neil Simon, Euripides, and Mel Brooks, I'm thinking you can say the same for the theatre season as a whole.

The Underpants Fall, but Timber Lake's "The Underpants" Doesn’t

If there’s one theatrical axiom I’ve subscribed to over the years – both as a performer and as an audience member – it’s this: If anything is going to go wrong with a production, it’ll go wrong on opening night. (Things also tend to go wrong when the show is being videotaped or ... ahem ... when a critic is in the audience, but that’s a whole ’nother story.)

Just when I was convinced that Picasso at the Lapin Agile would endure as Steve Martin’s wittiest, funniest theatre script, the multi-talented writer/actor/comedian has outdone himself, with the adapted comedy The Underpants.

The Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's "Desk Set" Full of Laughs, Promise

Richmond Hill Players Theatre has done a very good thing. Instead of usual attempts to “wow” audiences with edgy (and, in my opinion, too brilliantly written for community theatre) scripts such as Steve Martin’s Picasso at the Lapin Agile or efforts to appeal to the older generation with shows such as On Golden Pond and Driving Miss Daisy, the organization’s current production of Desk Set settles contentedly into a much-needed middle ground.
