“Austen the Musical”
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a female actor in possession of great talent should apply for this role. “Austen the Musical” starts when the author is an unpublished 20-year-old living in Hampshire.

Apropos to Mother’s Day, and a magnificent button to the end of its 63rd season, Arena Players’ Crowns: A Gospel Musical is, among many things, a celebration of Christian and African religious traditions. Adapted by playwright Regina Taylor from the picture-book “Crowns: Portraits of Black Women in Church Hats,” without a composer, and as directed by Kwamé Kenyatta-Bey, Crowns is a spirit-stirring, hand-clapping good time.

Director Matt Bassett, a faculty member of Montgomery College, in choosing Bat Boy: The Musical to direct, chose to examine, “how someone who doesn’t fit the social norm must struggle for recognition and acceptance, against others’ (and their own) baser natures.” That sentiment aptly fits the central figure of Bat Boy: The Musical, which features a Book by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming, and Music and Lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe. With Music Direction by Dr. Jay Crowder and Victor Simonson (who was also the Conductor), Montgomery College’s production of Bat Boy: The Musical an offbeat combination of tragicomedy and fun.
