2018 Season Directors Search

Pinole Players is now accepting applications for Guest Directors for our 2018 Season:

February 2 - 24, 2018

When tightly wound Aaron is set up with cool girl Casey, a quick drink turns into a hilarious dinner served with sides of Google background checks, fake emergency phone calls, a slew of bad boy and uptown girl exes, and some seriously saucy chemistry. Can this mismatched pair turn what could be a dining disaster into something special before the check arrives, or will they end up at another table for one?

The 2013 Broadway premiere with book by Austin Winsberg and music and lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner featured Zachary Levi (TV's Chuck, and Tony Nominee for the 2016 Broadway revival of She Loves Me) and Krysta Rodriguez (TV's Smash, and "Wednesday" in the Original Broadway Cast of The Addams Family).

June 8 - 23, 2018

Neil Simon's semi-autobiographical comedy about chaos backstage at a 1950s comedy TV show. A gaggle of eccentric gag writers try to support their star, a charismatic lunatic modeled on Sid Caesar, as the network slowly chips away at his comic vision.

Laughter on the 23rd Floor opened on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on November 22, 1993 and closed on August 27, 1994 after 320 performances and 24 previews. Directed by Jerry Zaks, the cast featured Nathan Lane, Ron Orbach, Randy Graff, Mark Linn-Baker, Bitty Schram, J.K. Simmons and Lewis J. Stadlen.

September 28 - October 20, 2018

Based on the film of the same name, Xanadu centers on a Greek muse who is sent to Earth to inspire Californians during the 1980s. While on earth, she meets and falls in love with an artist and helps him realize his dreams.

With a campy, hilarious and self-effacing book by Douglas Carter Beane, Xanadu includes classic songs from the 70's & 80's, as well as the original film (I Have You Never Been Mellow, Evil Woman, Magic, Xanadu), as well as new songs written by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar and featuring Cheyenne Jackson, Kerry Butler (Tony Nominee), Jackie Hoffman, Mary Testa and Tony Roberts.
