Prospective Directors:

The Santa Clara Players (SCP) community theater group is now accepting applications from persons wishing to direct for our group in the 2017-2018 season. We are excited about our new season choices and about the possibility of working with you. The stipend for directing is $850 per production.

SCP presents three shows during the year: a Fall show in Oct./Nov., a Winter show in Feb./Mar., and a Spring show in May/June. The shows run four weekends (Thursday-Sunday) for a total of 11 performances.

The SCP 2017-2018 season selections are:

FALL (Oct. 27 - Nov 18, 2017): Agatha Crusty and the Health Spa Murders by Derek Webb
Crime novelist and amateur detective Agatha Crusty (pronounced ‘croosty’) decides that a health spa is just what she needs to recharge her batteries. She books into Seventh Heaven Health Spa. There she meets the other participants of the health spa weekend: members of a fashion house sales team who are there as a reward for being the highest sales achievers for the year. Things start well with the women experiencing the choice of spa treatments on offer until one of the group is found drowned, presumed murdered, in the Moor Mud Bath. Enter Detective Inspector Simon Aster – a DI with a penchant for complicating the simplest detection methods. When other murders follow, Agatha decides to take matters into her own hands.

WINTER (Feb. 23 - Mar 17, 2018): Helen on Wheels by Cricket Daniels
Helen Wheeler is a gun totin’ and whiskey drinking Granny, living in the small town of Crockett, Oklahoma. When Helen isn’t locked up in the local clink, she’s on her front porch shootin’ up critters and the local kids. Not even the local sheriff, who has already taken away all of her ammo and her driver’s license, can manage to uphold the law when it comes to Helen, her sidekick Zona, and their daily “Thelma and Louise” antics. Helen’s son Nelson thinks it’s time for Mama to move out of Crockett and closer to him. Helen on Wheels is a delightful heartwarming new comedy proving that feisty old ladies have the right to cause hell, play bingo and to bear arms.


SPRING (May 18 - June 9, 2018): The Ladies Foursome by Norm Foster
The day after their friend Catherine’s funeral, Margot, Tate, and Connie gather for a round of golf in honour of their recently departed fourth. At the golf course they are joined by another woman, an old friend of Catherine’s they’d never met. Over the course of eighteen holes, secrets and confessions unravel as the women discuss love, sex, children, and everything in between.
