The 'G2K' Getting To Know Series: Uniquely adapted musicals specifically for youth performers. Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today.

Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!

Now Playing Onstage in Connecticut - Week of 11/11/2012 CHILDREN OF EDEN
ALBERTUS MAGNUS COLLEGE ACT 2
11/2-11/17/2012
From Stephen Schwartz and John Caird comes a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith... not to mention centuries of unresolved family business! Freely based on the story of Genesis, CHILDREN OF EDEN is a frank, heartfelt and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. Adam, Eve, Noah and the "Father" who created them deal with the headstrong, cataclysmic actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message: that "the hardest part of love... is letting go."A large cast is needed to take on the story of the Old Testament in this moving, foot-stomping musical. CHILDREN OF EDEN is a wonderful show to perform for children and students.

Now Playing Onstage in Connecticut - Week of 11/11/2012 WINGS, THE MUSICAL
The Spirit of Broadway Theater
10/24-11/25/2012
In her adventurous youth, Emily was an aviatrix who fearlessly walked on the wings of the family biplane. Just as she once plummeted dizzyingly through space, she is now falling through inner space as the result of a stroke. This extraordinary musical takes us inside Emily's mind as this gallant woman gropes her way toward the cave of memory, away from the scrambled words and short-circuited thoughts that hold her captive. With breathtaking simplicity, WINGS charts Emily's hesitant recovery as she begins regaining the vocabulary to accompany her reawakened emotions. But a relapse hurls her back into the void, this time to face death. In this musical's exultant view, however, Emily has merely taken flight once again, the curiosity and bravery that prompted her girlish exploits having seized her anew.

DEAD MAN'S CELL PHONE by Sarah Ruhl Directed by Alicia Dempster The Brookfield Theatre for the Arts announces their final show of the 2012 season, the comedy, Dead Man's Cell Phone, written by Sarah Ruhl and directed by Alicia Dempster. While at a cafe, a man dies but his cell phone will not stop ringing. The woman at the next table answers his ringing phone and is soon playing comforter to the man's grieving friends and family. In the course of meeting these people, she falls in love with the dead man's brother and becomes ensnarled in the dead man's bizarre life. Dead Man's Cell Phone is an imaginative comedy by award winning playwright and Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl. The play tells the tale of a woman forced to confront her assumptions about morality, redemption and the need to connect in a technologically-obsessed world.

Now Playing Onstage in Connecticut - Week of 11/11/2012 JOSEPH...DREAMCOAT (93' U.K. TOUR W/OPTIONAL `MEGAMIX`)
Curtain Call, Inc
11/16-12/15/2012
The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. This version of JOSEPH?DREAMCOAT features extended songs and dances. The Megamix is available as a separate rental with this version. Lyrics by Tim Rice; Music by Andrew Lloyd WebberFor more information on Curtain Call, Inc, click hereFor more information on Joseph...Dreamcoat (93' U.K. Tour w/Optional `Megamix`), click here
