Magenta Theater’s Season Tickets on Sale Now

Magenta Theater’s 16th season launches with pure British humor with the production of “Jeeves Intervenes” in February. Rapidly following on Jeeves’ coattails is the pop musical “Emma” in April. In June, audiences will be caught up in the whirlwind farce “Boeing, Boeing.” Think there’s time for a rest? Nope! “Baskerville,” starring Sherlock and Watson, comes howling onto the stage in September, keeping pulses racing and minds boggled. To round out the season next November, Magenta has a ten-year revival of “Once Upon a Palace Purple.” It’s non-stop action on the Magenta stage in 2018.

Dead Beats at the Magenta Theater

Theater Classes for Adults at Magenta

Magenta Theater is known primarily as a performance venue for mainstage shows, improv events, staged readings and musicals. Due to ongoing requests from patrons and volunteers, Magenta is now offering more theater-related classes for adults. The company has always had workshops in lighting design, sound board operation and other technical areas, but has referred requests for acting and improv to other Portland or Vancouver organizations. But no more! Three qualified instructors are teaching classes in Beginning Improv, Intro to Musical Theater, and Intro to Acting.

The workshops will be led by longtime artistic director and vocal coach Kristi Foster, Los Angeles casting director and acting coach Karen Maseng, and veteran improv player and instructor KC Cooper. All classes will be held at Magenta Theater, 1108 Main St. in downtown Vancouver. Registration for all classes is now available online at magentatheater.com. Below are details about the workshops:

  • Intro to Musical Theater Auditions: If you’re a veteran theater performer or brand new to the stage, you know that auditioning for a show is often the scariest part of the actor’s process. How do you move from fear to fierceness? This workshop is the place to start. Demystify the process by learning some behind-the-scenes tips from a veteran director and sharpen your auditioning skills in this workshop format. Bring a 30-second monologue and a 16-bar musical excerpt and expect to leave the workshop with fresh perspective and some practical tools in your artistic toolbox. Free Q&A session Monday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m.; the workshop itself will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 14. Cost: $40.
  • Intro to Musical Theater Callbacks: after you’re more confident with the auditioning process, this workshop is exactly what you need. Dive right in and experience spontaneous scene work, and practice the technique of cold reading. Once again, you can take away the mystery of this more focused auditioning process by learning from experts and working with your artistic peers. Saturday, Dec. 9, 9 to 11 a.m. Cost: $40. A possible additional class will be offered on Tuesday, Nov. 21, depending on interest.
  • Intro to Acting: this class will cover reaction auditions (fundamentals of preparation), one-liners with action choices (intentions and action choices are essential to any actor’s toolkit), and Meisner Repeats with dialogue (the concept of Repeats and how to use them when preparing for a role). The original Oct. 30 class filled very quickly so an additional one has been added on Monday, Dec. 4, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Cost: $40.
  • Beginning Improv: this six-week course will focus on different aspects of improv each week. Students will learn the art of listening and responding, finding agreement, how to heighten scenes, using the environment, and developing characters—all in a fun supportive environment! Improv can also add another tool to a stage actor’s toolbox and can be applied to business and social settings as well. Each student will discover what works for them as individuals, and develop their own improv styles while having fun with other students. Classes are Sunday afternoons from 2 to 4 p.m. at Magenta Theater from Nov. 5 through Dec. 17 (no class on the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend). Cost: $125 for the series, which includes a ticket to the Magenta Improv Theater Dec. 23 show.

Prescription for Murder: You Be the Detective!

Murder mysteries are as English as a cup of Yorkshire Red tea with a Sainsbury’s Custard Cream biscuit. While that may seem puzzling to some Americans, it should be everyday terminology to those familiar with Miss Marple, Midsomer Murders, and Rosemary and Thyme—all wonderful British television shows. However, Magenta Theater’s October murder mystery, “Prescription for Murder,” is lacking one important element: the detective. Audiences are left to their own devices to try and decipher the covey of clues covertly interjected by playwright Norman Robbins.

This is routine until he has to tell them that he’s been offered a dream job that would take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. The news doesn’t sit so well. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around. Frank, Aida, Nunzio, and Emma do their level best to keep him home, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely—and single—Caitlin O’Hare as bait…but you’ll have to see the play to find out what happens next.

“The Rainmaker” at Magenta Theater

The Rainmaker,” a play by N. Richard Nash and directed at the Magenta Theater by Shaye Eller, takes the audience back to a time of paralyzing drought in the West. We meet a girl whose father and two brothers are worried as much about her becoming an old maid as they are about their dying cattle. (The truth is, she is indeed a plain girl.)

The brothers try every possible scheme to marry her off, but without success—nor is there any sign of relief from the dry heat. Then onto the scene comes a picaresque character with a mellifluous tongue and the most grandiose notions a man could imagine. He claims to be a rainmaker and he promises to bring rain…for $100. It’s a silly idea, but the rainmaker is so charmingly ingratiating that the family finally consent. They bang on big brass drums to rattle the sky, while the rainmaker turns his magic on the girl and persuades her that she has a very real beauty of her own. And she believes it, just like her father believes the self-proclaimed rainmaker can actually bring rain. Does the story end with everybody getting what they desire?

Well, come to the Magenta Theater at 7:30 p.m. on April 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 20, and 21 and find out! There are also matinee performances at 2 p.m. on April 15 and 22.
