MARY POPPINS CAST LIST!
Mary Poppins: CAST LIST
A big THANK YOU to every one of you who put yourself on the line to be in the show. With so many people auditioning, there was some fine talent and we had some tough choices to make. However, casting depends on many factors beyond talent - schedule conflicts, size of cast needed, physical appearance in relationship to others, vocal projection, listening expressiveness, confidence, etc.
Because of the limitations of our backstage space we need to keep the numbers below thirty. As a result, we feel lucky to have had such a multi-skilled group of people to cast in the show.
Again, to those of you not cast, we appreciate your interest and hope you will not hesitate to return to audition for other productions - and, of course, to see this one with the troupe below.
Director: Liane Nichols
Musical Directors: Steve & Mary Citta

DIRECTOR/PRODUCER OF EMMY AWARD WINNING “E! TRUE HOLLYWOOD STORY”
The plot line centers on a big local and fabricated controversy. An out of town mob developer, his private secretary and a hired killer arrive in Cedar Falls to present their plan to construct a large 12 story hotel and casino. The massive complex will be constructed on the river across the street from the theatre. Plans might include a casino boat to take gamblers up and down the river. Naturally the locals are split on the plan: It will bring in business and some people love the tax revenues and fees it will derive, but environmentalists are violently against it. Battle lines have been drawn putting a local architect in the cross hairs. The Mayor is up for re-election but his Chief of Staff thinks he can sway the Mayor into making a fatal decision thus allowing an opening at city Hall for himself! The Mayor’s son, (a Romeo type) and the Developer’s daughter (a Juliet type) fall in love, of course. One thing is certain: someone will be murdered and one person will be the murderer. This a fun and engaging evening for the audience and for tv viewers.
“It’s Murder Out There! ™” is a partially scripted reality TV show that follows the antics of the author, writer, producer, production staff, and an acting troupe as they present high class original murder mystery comedy performances around the country. The backstage antics, romances, fights, and creative processes are captured as the “Murder Mystery Bus” travels from city to city with the Troupe, the host/author and staff. There are one or two area celebrities on the day of the show that will “star.” This is being recorded and the first pilot will be shot October 15 and 16 in Cedar Falls at the Oster Regent Theatre. Eight actors will be brought in from around the Midwest and local auditions will take place to cast actors for the TV show that rehearses and performs in front of a live audience the same day.
Producer/Director Paul Warshauer (over 360 murder mystery comedies in the USA, London, Paris)
Cedar Falls commercial production company Pixel labs (UNI, CF Community Schools, Pump Haus, Bartels, Boy Scouts, Brazillian 2wins)
L.A. Producer/Director - Michael Lynn (EMMY Award winning E! “True Hollywood Story”)
Welcome to the Oster Regent Theatre
Welcome to the Oster Regent Theatre, home of the Cedar Falls Community Theatre. This is a hip, fun and happening place to be for live performance in the Midwest. Great plays are performed live on stage throughout the year. Some are musicals and many are great comedies and farces that have proven to be hits. This traditional theatre, with a main floor and balcony, was built in 1910 and restored in 1994. The 472 seats have had enthusiastic people watching diverse talent from the past few years that included Tony Sandler, Leo Kottke, Buddy Morrow & the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, Greg Brown with Pieta Brown & Bo Ramsey, The von Trapp family singers, Roger McGuinn, Susan Werner, Larry O'Brien & the Glenn Miller Orchestra, the Ozark Jubilee direct from Branson, Richard Sladek, Clarence Williams & the Rising Sons. The Old Creamery Theatre and the Guthrie Theater have performed on the Oster Regent Stage and the Cedar Falls Community Theatre holds regular open auditions for plays year round. Many business owners and managers support the theatre through ads in the playbill and sponsorships of shows. The theatre has been very successful in driving business to people that support the theatre. The theatre is a welcoming place to be for those looking to get involved in helping backstage, front of house, or on stage. Check out our volunteer opportunities.
