Imagination Theater’s 101 Dalmatians in the Spring, 2016, will be a full production comparable to any of the musicals produced in previous seasons.
101 Dalmatians is also being considered a “workshop” type of production to afford experienced as well and new performers the opportunity to be a part of a very enjoyable and magical theater experience.
With seven leading roles, nine smaller roles, a large “puppy chorus,” relatively simple vocal requirements, a professional musical performance track, and a short rehearsal period, 101 Dalmatians is planned as a fun experience for participants and audiences alike. With a running time of one hour (not including an intermission), 101 Dalmatians will be a perfect introductory theater experience for younger audience members.
Peter Wolfe will be Director and Scenic Designer for 101 Dalmatians. Lanny Langston is the show’s producer. Maggie Bush will be the Assistant Director.
· There will be an eight-week rehearsal schedule February-March 2016, and at least 14 performances in April, 2016.
· Perusal Script with sheet music will be available for check-out at the IT Ticket Office September 1, 2015
· Rehearsal and Performance Schedule will be available on-line October 1, 2015
Based on the classic animated film, Disney's 101 Dalmatians is a fur-raising adventure featuring Cruella De Vil, Disney's most outrageous villain, and 101 of the most adorable heroes to set their paws onstage.
Artistically-inclined pet owners Robert and Anita live happily in London with Dalmatian parents Pongo and Perdita, stalwart dogs devoted to raising their puppies. Everything is quiet until the monstrous Cruella De Vil plots to steal the puppies for her new fur coat! All the dogs of London daringly rescue the puppies from Cruella and her bumbling henchmen.
