Brooke Hills Playhouse schedules auditions

WELLSBURG - The Brooke Hills Playhouse has scheduled auditions for Richard O'Brien's hit musical comedy, "The Rocky Horror Show," according to Julia Barnhart of Wellsburg, president of the Brooke County Arts Council, the Playhouse's parent organization.

"Auditions will be held at the playhouse from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Aug. 20-21, and callbacks are scheduled for 6 p.m. Aug. 22," Barnhart said.

Barnhart noted the classic rock musical will be performed at 8 p.m. Oct. 12-13, 19-20 and 26-27 and midnight on Oct. 20 and 27. Because of the show's dialogue and subject matter, no one younger than 17 will be admitted unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Pete Fernbaugh of Weirton will direct the production, with Bethany Fernbaugh of Weirton providing musical direction and Terri Perry of Washington, Pa., serving as assistant director.

"The Rocky Horror Show" has been an international hit since its London opening in 1973. A 1975 film adaptation, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," has been equally popular with audiences, and continues to be screened today.

"The Rocky Horror Show" tells the story of a newly engaged couple, Brad and Janet, who get caught in a storm and seek refuge in the home of Dr. Frank N. Furter, a mad scientist who is about to unveil his new creation, a muscle man named Rocky Horror. Musically, the show is best known for its signature dance number, "The Time Warp."

Director Pete Fernbaugh emphasized that, because of the show's language and subject matter, all those auditioning must be 18 years of age and older.

Fernbaugh explained that auditions will be in two parts.

"In the first part, each actor will be asked to perform a two-minute monologue and sing 32 bars of a song from a Broadway rock musical," Fernbaugh said, adding appropriate musicals from which to choose a song would include, but not be limited to, "Bat Boy," "Rent," "Hairspray," "Spring Awakening," "Jesus Christ, Superstar," "American Idiot" and "Evita."

"The second part of the audition will involve cold readings from the script," Fernbaugh said. "We also will teach each group a portion of 'Time Warp' and a dance to go along with it.

"While dancing skills definitely are a plus, they will not be a critical factor on who gets cast, which will be decided primarily based on acting and singing skills," Fernbaugh continued.

Fernbaugh described what kind of actors he's seeking for the show.

"I'm looking for originality and the ability to let loose, have a good time, and live the performance organically as it's happening," he said. "This show requires a great deal of memorization, but it also demands improvisation from the performers, so those who display a facility for being 'in the moment' will have the greatest chance of being cast in key roles."

The tentative rehearsal schedule calls for actors to be available from 6:30 p.m to 9 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. Mondays and Wednesdays will be music and choreography rehearsals with Tuesdays and Thursdays devoted to scene work. Actors will be scheduled as needed on weekdays, with the whole cast rehearsing on Saturdays.

Actors should bring their personal calendars to auditions so they can list any scheduling conflicts on the audition form.

Fernbaugh also is looking for crew members and musicians for the show. He also is looking to assemble a rock band of sorts.

The Brooke Hills Playhouse's 41st summer season will continue next week with the opening of Agatha Christie's classic murder mystery, "The Mousetrap," directed by Diana Mendel of Wellsburg. The show will run at 8 p.m. Aug. 3-4 and 10-11 and 2 p.m. Aug. 5 and 12.

A Spotlight production of a readers' theater presentation of James Montgomery's comedy, "Nothing But the Truth," adapted and directed by Charles Calabrese of Wintersville, will be seen 8 p.m. Aug. 17-18 and 2 p.m. Aug. 19.

Ken Ludwig's comic farce, "Leading Ladies," directed by Russ Welch of Wellsburg, will be performed 8 p.m. Aug. 24-25 and Aug. 31 through Sept. 1 and 2 p.m. Aug. 26 and Sept. 2.

Tickets for Brooke Hills Playhouse musicals are $12 for adults; $10 for students, senior citizens and groups; and $8 for children younger than 12. Nonmusical plays are $10 for adults; $8 for students, senior citizens and groups; and $6 for children younger than 12. For reservations and information, call (304) 737-3344.

Doughty Valley Steam Days

Festival upcoming

The Doughty Valley Steam Days antique farm machinery reunion will be today through Saturday off state Route 557, near Charm in Holmes County.

A wide variety of operational exhibits set in an "on-the-farm" atmosphere will surely be interesting and educational to people of all ages.

A visitor to the event can see for themselves how steam and gasoline engines helped people accomplish jobs on the farm and in industry 100 years ago. During the first quarter of the 20th century it was steam that powered mills, lighted cities and broke the prairie of the Great Plains. Gasoline engines were common for small power needs where electricity was not available, but for big jobs, only steam-powered engines were up to the task.

This year's Steam Days reunion is pleased to host the centennial celebration of New Bedford resident J.D. Miller's Case 110 horsepower steam tractor. In action will be one of the largest steam tractors that the J.I. Case Threshing Machine Co. manufactured for just a few years during the first boom years of the western expansion of agriculture.

Dubbed "Miller's Monster" by locals, the machine is a mechanical marvel by any measure, but the story of machine restoration is one of a labor of love and dedication to craftsmanship. It was built in 1912 at Racine, Wis., and delivered to Alberta, Canada, where it remained in the ownership of the same family for decades. Miller saw it advertised in a Canadian Antique Magazine and purchased in 1998. The mammoth tractor is indeed a monster sure to impress and fascinate craftsmen and laymen alike. At more than 43,000 pounds and 13 feet high, it will dwarf most other machines at the event.

Last year's reunion included 21 portable and traction engines ranging from 9 to 110 horsepower and at least the same number is expected for 2012. Demonstrations of steam threshing, baling, plowing and sawing will be active all day. Visitors can also expect to see dozens of preserved and restored antique flywheel-engines and tractors running interesting farm machines in operational displays.

Field demonstrations of horse and steam plowing are also planned. In addition to the antique machinery, there will be local craft and flea market stands to browse through. Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m. spectators will be treated to live music from High County Bluegrass and Holmes County Bluegrass bands. Seating is limited, but there's plenty of room for lawn chairs.

The Doughty Valley Steam Days antique farm machinery reunion is held near Charm on state Route 557. Gates open for spectators at 7 a.m. each day. Admission for those 13 and older is a $4 donation to help defray costs of the event. Parking is free. Food will be available all day from Charm View Parochial School volunteers, with breakfast served from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

Museum of Art

PITTSBURGH - The Carnegie Museum of Art, in a co-production with the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, presents "Inventing the Modern World: Decorative Arts at the World's Fairs, 1851-1939" on display Oct. 13 through Feb. 24 at the Carnegie.

From their inception in 1851, the fairs showcased the cutting edge of industry, production, new materials and methods for creating everything from tools to jewelry, furniture to textiles.

In doing so, artists and manufacturers used breakthrough scientific innovations to create art objects that embodied the latest aesthetics and techniques.

Inventing the Modern World assembles more than 200 art objects from the world's fairs and showcases objects assembled from European and American collections.

The decorative arts made for the world's fairs often display the use of traditional styles while employing previously unknown materials and methods. Because early world's fairs were a gathering of nations in a less globalized time, works typically exhibited a nationalistic pride while showcasing the most cutting-edge craftsmanship of a given country.
