Grab your board, blare your tunes and boogie down to the Baltimore Rock Opera Society’s furriest, feltiest, full-length rock opera yet. “Welcome to Shakesville” teleports the audience to 1965 at the dawn of psychedelia. Join our unsung heroine, Betty, as she falls down the rabbit hole in search of answers to rock and roll history’s greatest mystery: the mysterious disappearance of Jimmy Graves. Pulling from some of pop culture’s swirliest influences, “Welcome to Shakesville” tips its hat to the citizens of Lidsville, The Muppets, Yellow Submarine and more. Featuring a wild cast of people and puppets, it’ll have you twisting and shouting all the way home.
Performances will take place in May/June 2019, at Zion Lutheran Church. (Opening May 24th & Closing June 16th) Cast auditions will take place in Jan/Feb and rehearsals will begin in Feb/March. Designers will be strongly encouraged to check-in at rehearsals so that they are familiar with how their designs are actually getting used.
As a Department Leader or Designer on a BROS Production, you get a chance to help shape a completely original, large-scale musical. You’ll be expected to bring high-quality designs that strive to get as close to professional production standards as possible in a community theater environment.
