stages_victor_victoria_graphicA woman pretending to be a man pretending to be a woman?! It’s a piece of cake for out-of-work soprano Victoria Grant in this hilarious, fun-filled romp through 1930s Paris. Based on the side-splitting seven-time Oscar-nominated Blake Edwards film and backed by an exhilarating Academy Award®-winning score by the great Henry Mancini, Victor/Victoria is a warm and wildly energetic look at gender perceptions as seen through the eternal battle of the sexes.

nonprophets_logo“Reasons to Be Pretty” by Neil LaBute is about Greg, whose tight social circle is thrown into turmoil when his offhand remarks about a female co-worker’s pretty face and his own girlfriend’s lack thereof get back to his girlfriend, Steph. But that’s just the beginning. Greg’s best buddy, Kent and Kent ’s wife, Carly also enter into the picture, and the emotional equation becomes exponentially more complicated. As their relationships crumble, the four friends are forced to confront a sea of deceit, infidelity and betrayed trust in their journey to answer the question, “How much is pretty worth?” “Reasons to Be Pretty” is a hopelessly romantic comic-drama about the hopelessness of romance.

stlas_nuts_graphicA Broadway hit, Nuts has been called the best courtroom melodrama since Witness for the Prosecution and The Caine Mutiny Court Martial. Set in a courtroom in New York's Bellevue Hospital, the story follows a high-priced call girl incarcerated on a charge for killing a violent "john". The State, represented by a court appointed psychiatrist and an aggressive prosecutor, say Claudia Faith Draper is unfit to stand trial. As testimony from experts, physicians and her parents unfolds, with her psyche and childhood dissected, she proves to the judge that she isn't "nuts" and stands legally sane at trial for manslaughter.                                                                                                                                                                \

Apply to be a Kevin Kline Judge


The staff and board of the Professional Theatre Council of St. Louis (PTC), who promote and celebrate excellence in professional St. Louis Theatre, are seeking a new group of judges for the 2012 calendar year.

Applications will be accepted until October 17th, 2011, and the new judges will be selected no later than October 31st, 2011.

PTC will be selecting approximately 12-15 judges to join the judging pool and begin evaluating professional productions in January of 2012.

This is a volunteer position requiring a significant investment of time, consideration, and dedication. It is also a meaningful and rewarding responsibility that serves the entire St. Louis professional theatre community.

Interested individuals must fill out an application and test ballot, both of which are available to download down below.  Note:  any application that does not include a completed test ballot will not be considered.

The Judging Committee will be selecting new judges from the pool of applicants based upon criteria such as each applicant’s theatrical training and experience, analytical abilities, critical eye, and enthusiasm for St. Louis professional theatre. Individuals who are Artistic or Managing Directors of PTC constituent theatres are not eligible to be judges, and a judge may not also maintain a position as a reviewer, critic, or blogger that creates content for public consumption in print, on radio/TV, or on the internet.

Judges selected MUST be available for an orientation and training session on Saturday, December 3, 2011, from 1pm-4pm, location TBD.

Judges will evaluate between 12 and 20 shows per year and will receive 1-2 comps for each show they evaluate. Judges do not choose which shows they evaluate; the assignments are random. Judges will be asked to serve a three-year rotating term, with 1/3 of the judges rotating out of the pool at the end of each year.

If you are intersted in applying, please download the application and test ballot, fill them out (typing strongly preferred), and return as an attachment to .
