Now Playing Onstage in Dayton - Week of 3/09/2014 HOMEROOM, THE MUSICAL
Brecksville Theater on the Square
The show begins with Jeff, expressing the belief that the kids in his homeroom have nothing in common except for their last name starting with the letter "V"?. Fifteen songs later, Jeff is more aware of the similarities than the differences. The teens come together to share their feelings regarding relationships, academic success and failure, social acceptance and alienation and the significance of bullying, secrets, lies, loss, love and lockers. Their individual stories weave together a musical that addresses the objectives and standards of character education through themes of understanding, acceptance, independence and responsibility and by encouraging communication. A sellout at the Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia, this insightful show is a perfect choice for middle/high school theater groups and teen theater companies.

Now Playing Onstage in Dayton - Week of 3/09/2014 MOZART & BEETHOVEN
Dayton Masonic Center
What to call it: The Marriage of Figaro, or The Day of Madness? That was probably the least of Mozart's concerns when he sat down to write this comic opera score in 1786. One of his main concerns had to be the fact that, no matter the title, the work was considered by the Viennese powers-that-then-were as lascivious, immoral, and sexually unrestrained. It had originally been based on a French stage comedy. Get the picture? Well, Mozart huddled with his librettist, who rewrote the book enough to be acceptable to the authorities. The revised version premiered and went on to great success. Through it all, the music was never the problem. After all, Mozart wrote it! 1786 also saw the Viennese premiere of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 24. With the most comprehensive scoring of all Mozart's piano concertos, the concerto has earned accolades as the one with the most effective, coordinated combination of all the separate musical elements and, as such, one of his greatest compositions, impressing and inspiring the likes of Beethoven and Richard Strauss. Hailed by the European press for his "overwhelmingly visceral" playing and a "phenomenal sound world realized through maximum palette," Zsolt Bognar will perform the Mozart Concerto. Regardless of who you are, where you live, or what you do, chances are better than even that you've heard Beethoven's Symphony No. 5-or at the very least the first four notes of the opening movement. They have made appearances in popular songs such as "Roll Over Beethoven" (Chuck Berry, 1956) and "A Fifth of Beethoven" (Walter Murphy, 1976) and in films such as The Longest Day (1962), Saturday Night Fever (1977), The Breakfast Club (1985), Howard's End (1992), Mr. Holland's Opus (1995), Fight Club (1999)...and the list goes on. But the greatest thing about Beethoven's 5th is the fantastic range of emotions that listening to it evokes. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the feeling. Symphony Sundaes is a unique concert concept. Featuring an entirely different and more intimate feel, Symphony Sundaes concerts are a shorter, more manageable presentation of family-friendly classics with no intermission; instead there's a relaxed ice-cream social after the concert sponsored by Graeter's, where you can meet and greet DPO musicians. Concerts are performed in the elegant Scottish Rite Cathedral at the Dayton Masonic Center. Free parking, too!
