Now Playing Onstage in Albuquerque - Week of 2/17/2013 PIRATES OF PENZANCE
BOSQUE SCHOOL
2/15-2/24/2013
A fresh take on one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most popular comic operas, this updated version of THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE took New York by storm when it premiered in Central Park in 1980, leading to a subsequent smash-hit Broadway run. Wacky, irreverent and as entertaining today as it was when it first opened in 1879, THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE spins an hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, dewy-eyed daughters and an eccentric Major-General, all morally bound to the often-ridiculous dictates of honor and duty. The beauty, wit and whimsy of Gilbert andSullivan's classic score is suffused with a modern sensibility, making this version an excellent choice for opera and light opera companies looking to expand their audience base. The sheer number of memorable roles makes it perfect for community and school groups. And with production requirements consisting of only two sets and a medium-sized orchestra, it should be considered by any company featuring comic actors with excellent singing voices.

Now Playing Onstage in Albuquerque - Week of 2/17/2013 SPAMALOT
Spencer Theatre
2/25-2/25/2013
Winner of the 2005 "Best Musical" Tony Award, "Spamalot" is an outrageously fun musical by Eric Idle and John Du Prez lovingly ripped-off from the classic film comedy "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." Loosely telling the legendary tale of King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table, and featuring a bevy of beautiful show girls, cows, killer rabbits and French people, Monty Python's "Spamalot" "raises silliness to an art form" (The Sunday Times) and has been hailed as "a no-holds-barred smash hit" (The New Yorker). The national touring production by Troika Entertainment (Cats, Jesus Christ Super Star) features a cast of 30 singers, dancers and orchestra musicians singing a knee-slapping array of silly songs like He Is Not Dead Yet, The Song That Goes Like This and Always Look on the Bright Side of Life as the motley crew of knights defend their honor, fall in love and gallop through the countryside in searchof the Holy Grail.

NEW MEXICO JUNIOR COLLEGE
2/22-3/3/2013
A down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon "Audrey II" grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination! One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a household name, thanks to a highly successful film version and a score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who redefined the animated musical film with Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. Charming, tuneful and hilarious, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS never fails to entertain. A small cast, band and unit set make the other aspects of production a snap.
