Our 20th Anniversary Season Has Arrived!

New Millennium Theatre Company is excited to announce:

A Very Bardy Birthday: NMTC’S 20th Anniversary Shakesplosion!

We have cooked up some exciting Shakespeare parodies to celebrate 20 awesome years of New Millennium madness. Come party with us!

 

This autumn we are kicking off the season with….

“The Tragedy of He-Manlet, Prince of Eternia.”

Written by Adam “Roz” Rosowicz and directed by Ali Keirn!

Something’s rotten in the state of Eternia. The king is dead, and it’s up to Prince Adam to seek justice or lose the figure of action! It’s Shakespeare meets Saturday morning in a brand new iambic pentameter adventure that begs the question; “To He, or not to He?”

 

Later in the autumn we’re going to be doing a fundraiser featuring a performance of…

“DEADPOOL ANDRONICUS”

Written by Alex B. Reynolds

A one-night-only performance of the classic Shakespeare tale of murder and revenge as told by everyone’s favorite Merc with a Mouth (and resident expert on murder and revenge): Deadpool. Daniel Day-Lewis may be retiring, but There Will Be Blood.

 

Wrapping up our 20th season will be…

“Romeo & Juliet & Dungeons & Dragons”

Written by Sam Long

They say if you put typewriters in a room full of monkeys, then eventually they’d write some Shakespeare. We’re going with the assumption that this could happen just as easily with a room full of kids playing some D&D. Our brave, young adventurers find their friendships tested as often as their luck of the dice. Owlbears and odes of love abound in this tale the shines a light on the magic within us all.

 

In addition to this action-packed season, we are happy to announce that WE ARE MOVING! All of our 20th Anniversary productions will be performed at Stage 773 at 1225 W Belmont.

Keep your eyes on our site and our Facebook page so you can stay up to date on all the details for A Very Bardy Birthday: NMTC’S 20th Anniversary Shakesplosion!

Hank Cast

 

AUDITIONS FOR THE INCREDIBLE HANK

 

ONE OF US. ONE OF US. ONE OF US. Audition for “THE INCREDIBLE HANK” and become part of the New Millennium family! We are definitely not a cult!

Written & Directed by Alex B. Reynolds, this original script is full of laughs, pop-culture references, and ACTION.

“It’s 2017, and superheroes are everywhere. In the city of Sandicago, every superhero and supervillain is competing for their place in the saturated super market – all except for Hank. Hank would rather ignore his superpowers and work his normal job for the rest of his normal life. But when his office becomes the setting for a supervillain’s evil plan, Hank is dragged kicking and screaming into the super drama. Faced with pompous heroes, reckless villains, hapless cops and the hounding press, Hank reluctantly finds himself in the fight of his life – to stay normal.”

We would love to see new and familiar faces at our auditions for THE INCREDIBLE HANK! Here are the details, folks:

Rehearsals will run through March and April, with performances Friday, Saturday and Sunday matinees May 19, 2017 through June 25, 2017 with no performance on June 21 and added performance on May 24th at 8pm.
