ANNIE GET YOUR GUN, BOOMTOWN and More Set for Creede Repertory Theatre's 2014 Season
2014 CRT Season Announcement!
Annie Get Your Gun
Music & Lyrics by Irving Berlin
Book by Herbert & Dorothy Fields
As revised by Peter Stone
The feisty love story of Annie Oakley and Frank Butler set against the backdrop of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. Irving Berlin's timeless score includes "You Can't Get a Man with a Gun," "There's No Business Like Show Business," "I Got the Sun in the Mornin'" and "Doin' What Comes Natur'lly." Join musical theatre's sharpest heroine, as she shoots for the stars, hits her target, and lives scrappily ever after.
By David Ives
Adapted from the comedy by Pierre Corneille
Paris, 1643. A charming young man has only one flaw: he cannot tell the truth. He hires a servant who cannot tell a lie, falls in love with Lucrece, whom he thinks is Clarice, who is secretly engaged to his best friend. Nor is he aware that his father is trying to marry him off to Clarice, whom he thinks is Lucrece, who actually is in love with him. His increasingly-more-ridiculous lies add up to a sparkling romantic farce, brilliantly adapted for today.
The Secret Affairs of Mildred Wild
By Paul Zindel
Mildred's life is ordinary. But her dream world, fed by the 3,000 movies she has eagerly devoured, is spectacular! And when the outside world intrudes via her husband, his meddling sister, their hard-boiled landlady, or the wrecking crew sent to tear down the building - Mildred meets each crisis with a hilarious fantasy drawn from her precious lode of old movies. Audiences will lose themselves in the touching, funny escapades of this kooky, lovable and enchanting heroine.
The Last Romance
By Joe DiPietro
CRT favorites John Green, Christy Brandt, and Annie Butler star in this golden-years romantic comedy. Ralph, an elderly widower, feels young again - all thanks to an unexpected second chance at love. Relying on a renewed boyish charm, Ralph attempts to woo the elegant, but distant, Carol. Up against Carol's reluctance and his domineering sister's meddling, Ralph embarks on the challenge of a lifetime, and regains a happiness that seemed all but lost.
Hope and Gravity
Lives overlap and elevators stop on random floors as nine characters are compellingly revealed in this contemporary comedy about fate. From an impossible elevator accident to an unlikely hotel hook-up, chance encounters lead to surprising connections. From the author of 2012's Ghost-Writer, this deeply fascinating play traces nine stories, told out-of-order, that lead inevitably to one momentous leap of faith.
Pants on Fire
A totally made up musical for kids
