The January kick-off production of “Give and Take,” features Justin Gaudoin, a former student at Monterey High School now returning from school at San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Taylor Rhoades, a former student of Pacific Grove High School currently majoring in Musical Theater at NYU, Audrey Moonan a Senior at Carmel High School, Collin Skerrit, a former student at Monterey High, and David Boehem, a new member of Paraphrase. Together, Godoin, Rhoades, Moonan, and Skerrit with the aid of Davis will guide audiences through the beginnings of Paraphrase as well as the future that it may hold.
The hour-long one-act play will include numbers from “Little Shop of Horrors,” “Addams Family: A New Musical” and previews from planned summer productions of “Man of La Mancha” and “Pippin.” Both plays will take place in a 10-day run at Carmel’s Forest Theatre, July 13-23. A third yet-to- be-announced play will be held at the Paper Wing Theatre, August 17-20.
The public is welcomed free of charge for the January productions and opportunity to bid on items to raise funds for the 2017 season. “This is a way of giving back to our community while helping to raise money for our production costs,” says Davis. “In addition to our friends at Paper Wing, we appreciate our partnership with the Forest Theatre Guild as well and thank them for their ongoing support to Paraphrase.”
Paper Wing Theatre is located at 320 Hoffman Ave. in Monterey. All performances begin at 8 p.m.
