Set on Santa Muerto beach, school has just let out for summer and the teenagers of Ocean View High are ready to surf, sun and have some fun!

From Nerds to Jocks to Beatniks, Attack of the Pom Pom Zombies is a hilarious show for the whole family, featuring a range of diverse characters, such as head cheerleader, Cindy Sue (Senior, Rachel Bradley), her all-american, football player-boyfriend, Roger (Senior, Patrick Compton), and Cindy Sue’s nerd nemesis, Weenie (Senior, Morgan Riddle).

Lovejoy Theatre Welcomes Tim Doyle!

Tim headshotLovejoy Theatre is pleased to welcome Tim Doyle to our theatre family!   Here is some info about our new Technical Director:

“My love for theatre began in middle school, in a production called, What’s Happening Hamlet, in which I got to play Hamlet. I was so pumped! I continued acting at Rowlett High School and into college at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, where I earned a BFA in Theatre Arts. It was at Midwestern that I began working as a technician as well and my love for technical theatre took form. After college, in 2004, I moved to Austin, Texas and joined a performing arts company called Yellow Tape Construction. During my five years as resident collaborator with YTC, I got the opportunity to help write, compose, conduct, direct, and perform original musicals, straight plays, and dance productions.

In 2010, my teaching career began at Lakeview Centennial High School in Garland, TX, where I taught both performance and tech theatre. In that time, we produced several shows, including Proof, Fame, Dark of the Moon, Bus Stop, Little Shop of Horrors, Ardy Fafersin, Aida, and Storm in the Barn, which was selected to perform at the 2014 UIL One-Act Play State Meet. In 2014, I became the Head Theatre Director at McKinney North High School, and produced many shows including Rumors, The Addams Family, Check, Please, Hedda Gabler, Tartuffe, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Big Mary, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, and Western Hero, an original musical written in collaboration with my students.

I often spend summers working for Garland Summer Musicals as the Tech Director. We do two shows a summer, and I have helped produce 9 to 5, Peter Pan, Thoroughly Modern Millie, West Side Story, Crazy For You, Fiddler on the Roof, and Nice Work if You Can Get It. I have also worked as a professional pianist and still enjoy playing piano in my downtime. I currently live in Plano, have been married to my wife, Jennylind, for 8 years, and have 2 dogs, Luca Brasi and Vincent.”

Seussical Tickets – On Sale Now

Oh, the thinks you can think! Join the Cat in the Hat and all your favorite characters on a whirlwind ride through the fantastic tales of Dr. Seuss. Come celebrate Lovejoy High School’s 10th anniversary performance of Seussical, The Musical, a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Together, we’ll journey from the Jungle of Nool, to the Circus McGurkus, to the invisible world of the Whos; it’s sure to be a joy for everyone, from the “tallest of tall to the smallest of small”!
The Cat in the Hat (Senior, Jeremiah “Jak” Barth) tells the story of Horton (Junior, Trace Glorioso), an elephant who discovers a speck of dust, the home to dozens of tiny Whos, including Jojo (Sophomore, Lindsay Haden), a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge–not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but also guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird (Sophomore, Raegan Vaughn). Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz (Senior, Caroline Vitanza) never loses faith in him. Throughout these colorful adventures, the powers of friendship, loyalty, and family emerge triumphant.
Seussical, The Musical is fun for the whole family! Seussical, The Musical will be performed in the Lovejoy High School Auditorium, Thursday, January 21st, through Saturday, January 23rd, 2016 at 7 pm. Tickets are $12 for students, staff, and seniors, and $16 for adults.
