Winter Show 2017!

The Upstage Players are in the midst of planning their winter show for 2017!  The production will be the last weekend in January or the first weekend in February or possibly a combination of the two!  Auditions will be held towards the end of November. The Arts Board annual meeting is October 23rd at 4:00 in the Upsala high school commons.  It is open to the public.  We will have our financial review, election of officers (must be a board member), and make final decisions regarding the winter show.  Check back for updates!

Summer Musical Announced

The summer musical for the Upsala Upstage Players will be "Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?" based on the novel by John R. Powers.  Music and Lyric by James Quinn and Alaric Jans.  It is a coming of age show that encounters the most entertaining aspects of adolescence.  Why shouldn't girls wear pearl necklaces or black patent leather shoes?  Why aren't there cookie cutters in heaven?  Come and be a part of the show and find out!  Auditions are May 17th at 7:00 pm in the Upsala High School auditorium.  Show dates will be July 29-August 1st.
