In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage. Then the girls who painted those watches began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, whose attempts to fight for her day in court are blocked by her idealistic former employer who cannot bring himself to believe the same element which shrinks tumors can possibly be causing the suffering of his employees. As the case goes on, Grace finds herself battling not just with the U.S. Radium Corporation, but also her own family and friends, who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire.

This entertaining version of Jack and the Beanstalk returns to the original English source, The History of Jack Spriggins and the Enchanted Bean. All the familiar characters are here: The dancing cow, the magic bean-seller, the hysterical chicken, the singing harp, the mother, the Giant. There are also zany villagers and a silly kitchen staff at the Giant’s castle. The Giant’s name is Gogmagog and he’s a horrible person. He even locks up the kingdom’s ruler. When Jack sells the cow for those magic beans the fun really begins. Jack goes up the beanstalk and into the castle where he not only fights Gogmagog but a spiteful Troll as well. By the play’s end the cow is returned, the chicken learns how to lay golden eggs and the good life returns to the kingdom — thanks to Jack. Our show dates and times are October 7th at 5:00 pm, as well as October 8th and 9th at 2:00 pm in the MVHS Black Box Theater! General Admission is $10; Students/Senior Citizens/Children Under 10 are $5.

A Chorus Line examines one day in the lives of seventeen dancers, all vying for a spot in the “chorus line” of a Broadway musical. After the first round of cuts, Zach, the director and choreographer, asks each dancer to speak about themselves. Discomfort opens into revelation, confession leads to redemption, and within the bright, outwardly homogenous chorus, the audience begins to see each dancer’s individuality. From Cassie, the star who just needs the “music and the mirror and the chance to dance,” to Val, a small-town girl with a brand-new big-town body, to Mike, who took his sister’s place in dance class, saying “I can do that. ”Based on real Broadway dancers’ stories, as told to fellow dancer and choreographer Michael Bennett, A Chorus Line is funny, heartbreaking, and refreshingly honest.

Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. The six guests are given aliases--Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, Professor Plum, and Miss Scarlet. Though discouraged from revealing personal information, it is soon discovered that all of them have fallen victim to the same blackmailer, their very host of the evening. Each is presented with a weapon and an option: pay their extortionist double, or kill the innocent butler. What follows is a madcap, slapstick evening full of murder, mystery, and laughs as they seek to puzzle out the culprit amongst criminals.

Our program director has the following message:

"At Metea Valley Theater, we strive towards creating an atmosphere that embodies the Metea LIFE statement of living with integrity, inspiring passion for learning, fostering positive relationships, and expecting equity and excellence for all involved. Our students learn from a variety of acting directors, technical directors, choreographers, both in education and professional theater. By providing perspectives from these various backgrounds, and encouraging an environment of collaboration, inclusiveness, and student ownership, we work with our students to make our visions a reality; a show that our audience won't be able to stop talking about!"
