Man of La Mancha*
Sep 20 - Oct 6, 2013
Dale Wasserman, Mitch Leigh and Joe Darion's brilliant and moving "Impossible Dream" musical about Don Quixote. When Miguel Cervantes is summoned before the Spanish Inquisition, fellow prisoners threaten to destroy his manuscript about the famed knight errant. To prove its worth, he and his manservant cast the prisoners themselves into the story and stage the quixotic tale. Rated PG.
*Because of issues with performance rights, MAN OF LA MANCHA replaces 1776 as the opening production of our 18th season.
Oct 6 - Nov 10, 2013
Ronald Harwood's funny and poignant play about four aged opera singers in a retirement home for musicians. To celebrate composer Verdi's birthday, they are called upon to set aside their ego-clashes and diminishing vocal skills to recreate the third act quartet from Rigoletto. Can they do it? Or, will Verdi roll over in his grave? Rated G.
Dec 6 - 22, 2013
Heartwarming musical adaptation of the beloved holiday film, featuring 17 Irving Berlin songs and a book by David Ives and Paul Blake. Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis are a successful song-and-dance act after World War II, who pursue a pair of beautiful singing sisters to a Vermont lodge to perform a Christmas show. And, the financially-struggling lodge just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil's former army commander. Will love prevail and the lodge be saved? Mr. Berlin's dazzling score features such classics as Blue Skies, I Love A Piano, How Deep Is the Ocean and, of course, White Christmas. Rated G.
The Night of the Iguana
Jan 17 - Feb 2, 2014
Tennessee Williams' blazing drama about a drunken, defrocked American minister and the multi-national denizens of a shabby Mexican hotel. Having become a tour guide in Mexico, the former clergyman battles his personal demons when tempted by a sensuous teenage girl. Through it all, the onetime cleric struggles to regain his sanity and self-respect. Rated PG-13.
August: Osage County
Feb 28 - Mar 23, 2014
Pulitzer and Tony-winning play by Tracy Letts. An Oklahoma family's crisis leads to an explosion of repressed feelings and old secrets. Despite the plot dealing with revelations of drug-addiction, broken marriage, incest, strained parental relationships and other dark subjects, the playwright mines laughs along with keen insights. In eye-opening fashion, this family explores the fun in dysfunction! Rated PG-13.
Apr 25 - May 11, 2014
William Shakespeare's absorbing drama about politics, power, conscience, and intrigue, centering on the events of one fateful day in March. As relevant today as it was when first penned, the Bard of Avon shows ancient Rome was no mere toga party. It serves as a reminder as to how back-stabbing politicians can really be. Rated PG-13.
Moon Over Buffalo
May 30 - Jun 15 , 2014
Uproarious farce by Ken Ludwig. Fading husband-and-wife stage stars hope to impress a famed Hollywood director to reclaim their fame and fortune, but, as fate would have it, everything that can go wrong does go wrong! Of course, it doesn't help that the couple is on the verge of splitting up because the husband has had a dalliance with the production company's young ingénue. Sight gags and frenzied hilarity about. Directed by Joe Doyle.
Les Liaisons Dangereuses
Jul 11 - 27, 2014
Christopher Hampton's sensual play (aka "Dangerous Liaisons") examines two pitiless French aristocrats. The Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont are both rivals and ex-lovers, using sex as a weapon to humiliate and degrade others for their own amusement. This adult drama depicts the decadence of the French aristocracy shortly before the French Revolution. It is Rated R.
