Now Playing Onstage in Albuquerque - Week of 2/24/2013 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.

ANNIE GET YOUR GUN (STONE)
Volcano Vista High School
2/28-3/2/2013
ANNIE GET YOUR GUN scored a bulls eye when it returned to Broadway in 1999, starring Bernadette Peters and sporting a revised libretto by Tony, Oscar and Emmy winner Peter Stone. As Newsday reported, Stone's revisions 'are sweetly ingenious, and the show is a dream.' Stone reshaped the 1946 book to create a Wild West show-within-a-show that frames the ageless 'Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better' love story of sharpshooters Annie Oakley and Frank Butler. Stone has added a secondary romance between the younger sister of Frank's bothersome assistant Dolly, and a boy who is (to Dolly's horror) part Native American. 'The book has been updated in ways that pass p.c. muster,' reported Time Magazine, 'without losing all the fun.' Joined to the new book, of course, is that amazing Irving Berlin score, featuring hit after hit after hit. 'Irving Berlin's greatest achievement in the theater,' wrote the New York Post, ANNIE GET YOUR GUN 'will always be a musical for the ages, one of the Broadway theater's enduring triumphs.'Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin; Original Book by Herbert Fields & Dorothy Fields; As Revised by Peter Stone

PORTALES HIGH SCHOOL
3/1-3/3/2013
An affectionate paean to Smalltown, U.S.A. of a bygone era, Meredith Willson's THE MUSIC MAN follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band he vows to organize - this despite the fact he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall. Perfect for professional theatres, community groups, summer stock and schools alike, this award-winning, critically acclaimed Broadway classic is an all-American institution, thanks to is quirky characters, charmingly predictable dramatic situations, and one-of-a-kind, nostalgic score of rousing marches, barbershop quartets and sentimental ballads which have become popular standards. The cast features a soaring soprano ingenue, parts for young performers and children, and one of the musical theatre's treasures, a tour de force leading role for a charismatic actor who doesn't need to be a trained singer. By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, THE MUSIC MAN is family entertainment at its best.
