Synopsis

 

A landmark in American drama, Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Our Town tells the story of a small town at the turn of the century, Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire. Narrated by the “Stage Manager”, we follow the Gibbs and Webb families, residents of Grover’s Corners, through twelve years of life changes — from the mundane in Act I, “Daily Life,” to the romantic in Act II, “Love and Marriage,” to the bittersweet in Act III, “Death and Eternity.” The play was revolutionary when it was first produced in 1938, challenging the conventions of realism and theatrical storytelling- this 2022 production will breath fresh life and fresh revolution into this old classic, reworking the staging and storytelling to challenge the theatrical conventions of today. While Our Town is often professed to be a play about “universal truths,” a story about “all of America,” there’s only so much limited truth a story about a small white East Coast town in the 1900s can offer modern audiences. But with the help of a dedicated and diverse ensemble of creators, the Woodland Opera House will reckon with the text to tell a powerful modern tale of the complications of nostalgia and the need to continue always moving forward in our social progress.

 

Character Breakdown

 

STAGE MANAGER: Female or Non-Binary actor of any race and ethnicity between the ages of 25+. The narrator and orchestrator of the play with a strong presence and command of space; this character holds the action and the storytelling in the palm of their hands. Good memorization and vocal skills a must.

 

THE GIRL: Female or Non-Binary actor of any race and ethnicity, ages 12-16, to play a girl of around 10–12 years. a young girl who assists the stage manager, and who represents the future, the ceaseless passage of time, nature, and the next generation in the play: she will be onstage the entire show, guiding and affecting the characters as they traverse the story, the fresh voice who will help bring this 1930s play into the 21st century. Strong stage presence and stamina required- singing skills a bonus.

 

EMILY WEBB: Female or Non-Binary actor of any race and ethnicity, ages 16-30, to play a young woman of 15-25. A young woman growing up in Grover’s Corners. Emily is very much the heart of the play. She has an open, curious spirit and an understanding of humanity which deepens before the audience’s eyes over the course of the story. Emily is studious and intelligent, unafraid to speak her mind, and concerned with cultivating an image of sophistication and maturity. She requires a strong command of poetic language. Singing skills and/or any other musical skills a bonus, but not required.

 

GEORGE GIBBS: Male or Non-Binary actor of any race and ethnicity, ages 16-30, to play a boy/man of 15-25. A teenage boy who grows into a young man, all the while fitting into the all-American fine-upstanding-boy mold with seeming perfection. He is a high school baseball star with dreams of becoming a farmer- he struggles in school, but not for lack of trying. His relationship with Emily, and his subsequent grief over losing her, forces George to push back against his comfortable mold and form a new, more complex understanding of his own humanity.

 

REBECCA GIBBS: Female or Non-Binary actor of any race and ethnicity, ages 12-18, to play a girl around the age of 12. Rebecca is George’s spunky younger sister, who has a pragmatic and sophisticated, if somewhat cynical, view of life. She is keenly aware of the power structures at play around her and quietly collects the capital (namely, money and beauty), that will most help her succeed within these structures. Not everyone in her family understands her, but that’s ok- she’s going places, and she’s going there fast. The rest of them will catch up eventually.

 

WALLY WEBB: Male or Any Gender of any race and ethnicity, ages 12-18, to play a 13-year-old. Emily’s younger brother (or sister!), who keeps being pushed into his/her older sister’s shadow, but who is determined not to stay there.

 

MR. WEBB: Male or Non-Binary actor or any race and ethnicity, ages 35+, to play a man in his 40s-50s. the editor of the town paper and Emily’s father, Mr. Webb is a sensitive soul who fancies himself a “modern type of man,” and while he mostly succeeds at fulfilling this persona, he can’t help but fall back into some old fashioned Grover’s Corners ways from time to time.

 

MRS. WEBB: Female or Non-Binary actor of any race and ethnicity, ages 35+, to play a woman in her 40s-50s. Mrs. Webb prides herself on being eminently practical and efficient, but she has her own poetic and romantic notions in spite of herself. Despite her conviction in maintaining a no-nonsense demeanor, Mrs. Webb is deeply empathetic, and often finds herself on the receiving end of heart-to-hearts, whether she wants to be there or not (mostly she does).

 

MR. GIBBS: Male or Non-Binary actor of any race and ethnicity, ages 35+, to play a man in his 40s-50s. George’s father and the town doctor, and a Civil War buff. He and his family are neighbors to the Webbs. He loves his family and his wife, but is a bit of a workaholic.

 

MRS. GIBBS: Female or Non-Binary actor of any race and ethnicity, ages 35+, to play a woman in her 40s-50s. Mrs. Gibbs loves her children, George and Rebecca, more than anything in the world, and loathes the day they must grow up and leave her nest. Despite this, she has an appreciation and yearning for life beyond Grover’s Corners- an artist lying dormant, Mrs. Gibbs dreams of seeing Paris, or anywhere else where no one speaks her language. She is simultaneously contented to stay where she is and eager to move beyond her current circumstances and her community’s conventions.

 

HOWIE NEWSOME/PROFESSOR WILLARD/JOE STODDARD: Male or Non-Binary actor of any race and ethnicity, to play a man between the ages of 40+. The jovial milkman who welcomes the birth of each new day, a relic of a history professor who lives in the town’s esoteric past, and the town cemetery undertaker who ushers the citizens to their final resting places, respectively; one actor will oscillate between these three characters, each of whom represents a different facet of the older generation in Grover’s Corners.

 

JOE CROWELL/SI CROWELL/SAM CRAIG: Male or Any Gender of any race and ethnicity, ages 13-20. One young actor to play three different young men (or women!) Two of these characters are the town’s newspaper delivery boys/girls, and one is a young man/woman returning home to Grover’s Corners after a time away.

 

MRS. SOAMES: Female or Non-Binary actor of any race and ethnicity, ages 35+. A bit of a busy body, whose usually well-intentioned concerns tend to fall into the trap of imagined moral superiority over her neighbors.

 

SIMON/SIMONE STIMSON: Any Gender, of any race and ethnicity, ages 25+. The local choir leader, and the local drunk. Simon’s coping mechanisms may be less than ideal, but his/her bitter views aren’t necessarily unfounded. Simon recognizes the follies of human existence- an important perspective in the play, and in the world. Ability to play a musical instrument (preferably guitar) is preferred but not required.

 

Come make some magic with us – we hope to see you there!

Synopsis

The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be “Out There,” observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful Romani woman, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the Romani people – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all.

 

Character Breakdown

A Congregation/Choir of gender-flexible storytellers narrates The Hunchback of Notre Dame. In story theater style, each performer in the show begins as a Congregant before taking on the characteristics of their assigned character(s), including principal characters, Gargoyles, Statues, Revelers, Soldiers, Romani (Gypsies), etc.

 

Principals:

Claude Frollo: Male, 30-50. Archdeacon of Notre Dame Cathedral and the most powerful cleric in Paris, he is the reluctant caretaker of Quasimodo. He will do whatever it takes to rid the city of the Romani “vermin,” even as he lusts after Esmeralda. Calculating, manipulative, and obsessive. Vocal range: Baritone

 

Quasimodo: Male, 18-30. The deformed bell-ringer of Notre Dame and Claude Frollo’s charge. Lonely and staunchly obedient to Frollo, he possesses a vivid imagination that brings to life the bells and gargoyles of the cathedral. Despite his shyness and uncertainty, he quickly befriends Esmeralda. Big-hearted and brave when necessary. Vocal range: Tenor

 

Esmeralda: Female, 18-30. A beautiful and free-spirited Romani woman who possesses the strong sense of justice and morality that Frollo lacks. Compassionate, she frees Quasimodo from the frenzied mob at the Feast of Fools and, against her better judgment, falls for the cocky Phoebus. Vocal range: Alto/Low Soprano

 

Captain Phoebus de Martin: Male, 18-30. Returning to Paris after serving in the war, Phoebus takes up his new position as Captain of the Cathedral Guard. Overconfident yet charming, this handsome, strong soldier makes the ladies swoon, yet his moral compass is also strong, and he openly defies the corrupted Frollo. Vocal range: Baritone/Tenor

 

Clopin Trouillefou: Male or Female, 20-40. The clever and charismatic King/Queen of the Romani (Gypsies). An air of mystery surrounds Clopin, who often leaves the scene in a puff of smoke. As the emcee for the Feast of Fools, s/he is witty and playful, but s/he boasts a darker, serious nature when not performing for the crowd. Vocal range: Baritone/Tenor/Soprano

 

Ensemble:

A Congregation/Choir of singers/storytellers: Gender flexible, age 16+. Vocal range: Bass, Baritone, Tenor, Alto, Soprano. The following roles will be cast from the Congregation/Choir ensemble:

 

Gargoyles/Statues: Gender flexible, age 16+. Eight stone figures of Notre Dame cathedral who come to life and function as Quasimodo’s friends and supporters. Vocal range: Baritone, Tenor, Alto, Soprano

 

Saint Aphrodisius: Male or Female, 20-50. A statue that comes to life. Vocal range: Baritone/Alto/Soprano

 

Jehan Frollo: Male, 20-30. Claude’s reckless younger brother. With the Romani woman Florika, he fathers Quasimodo, who he leaves in his brother’s care. Wild, passionate, and strong-willed. Vocal range: Baritone

 

Florika: Female, 20-30. A Romani and Quasimodo’s mother. Vocal range: Soprano

 

King Louis XI: Male, 40-50. King of France, nicknamed the Prudent.

 

Official: Male, 20-50. A judicial officer. Vocal range: Low Baritone

 

Madam: Female, 30-50. Owner of a brothel and safe haven for Romani.

Guild

Ushers and Docents The Woodland Opera House Guild is seeking ushers and tour docents. Become a guild member and support the Woodland Opera House. Membership is a wonderful opportunity for families and friends to enjoy a night out at the theatre. And of course, there is the good feeling of supporting our fabulous historic Woodland Opera House!

 

As a State Historic Park the Opera House offers tours. The Woodland Opera House is one of the smallest state parks in the California Park system and a designated historic landmark. Share our remarkable history by becoming a tour docent.

 

Join the Woodland Opera House Guild Thinking about becoming a guild member? These frequently asked questions may help you decide:

 

What is the Woodland Opera House Guild? The Guild is an organization of men and women who want to ensure the success of the historic Woodland Opera House by volunteering their services. Anyone over the age of 16 may join. Children 12-15 years old may join if sponsored by, and accompanied to, events by an adult member.

 

Are there lots of meetings? There is an orientation meeting when you first join, then one meeting a year. The Board of Directors meets once a month. And those meetings are open to any member.

 

How much does it cost? The dues for an active member are $25.00 per year. If you wish to join, but do not feel you can work much, or not at all, you may join as an Associate member. Associate dues are $40.00 per year. We have recently added a family membership for $90 a year as well. This is ideal for families of 4 or more that reside at the same address.

 

What can I do as a volunteer? You can: usher at all Mainstage and Theatre for Families productions and concerts, give out programs, provide help and assistance to our patrons, help backstage, sew costumes, paint sets, help with refreshments, serve on the Board, decorate for the holidays, learn to give tours, help with fundraisers, and many other tasks. There is always need for additional help and something for everyone. Let us know how you would like to contribute.

 

How often do I have to work? Active members are requested to help out at least 6 times a year. Most members enjoy serving much more than that. Associate members are not required to work, but their services are always welcome. They may sign up to volunteer for any event, performance, or concert as they wish.

 

What’s in it for me? The satisfaction of knowing you are helping keep the Historic Woodland Opera House Theatre a thriving venue is your greatest reward. More tangible rewards are seeing the performances and concerts free when you work at them, invitations to social events, and meeting wonderful, dedicated people like yourself. Each member keeps a record of their hours served. Members having 50 or more hours a year are honored at the annual Chesley Awards (W.O.H.’s Academy Award). Membership is a wonderful opportunity for families and friends to enjoy a night out at the theatre and spend some quality time together supporting our fabulous Historic Woodland Opera House!
