Accepting Director Applications for Season 72!
The Sioux City Community Theatre is now accepting director applications for Season 72! Qualified applicants should submit a letter of introduction, a completed director application, and a short resume. It is unlikely that anyone will be appointed director for more than one show per season, but you may increase your chances and submit more than one application if you so desire. Applications will be evaluated based on each applicant’s theater background/training, prior directorial experience, history of commitment/service to SCCT, motivation/enthusiasm, and show concept/vision. Understanding of Sioux City Community Theatre’s mission is a must.

Young Frankenstein (Main Stage)
(September 13 – 29, 2019)
Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga, Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. “It’s alive!” he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds.
Christmas Belles (Main Stage)

It’s Christmastime in the small town of Fayro, Texas, and the Futrelle Sisters are not in a festive mood. Frankie is overdue with her second set of twins and Twink, recently jilted and bitter about it, is in jail for inadvertently burning down half the town. Hot-flash-suffering, Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb’s Christmas Program from spiraling into chaos. But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program the citizens will never forget.

When it dawns on John that they are about the meet, he plunges into a mess of his own making in order to keep them apart.

His daughter and son-in-law live with him; she gets up for breakfast at lunchtime and he is curiously addicted to solitaire. It’s not only the impending birth that startles him; his previously meek little wife begins to lay down the law. There’s to be a nursery, a new bath, and she’s to have her own checking account.
