Mattanawcook Academy
3/20-3/22/2014
If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.Music by Mary Rodgers; Book by Jay Thompson & Dean Fuller & Marshall Barer; Lyrics by Marshall Barer

Now Playing Onstage in Maine - Week of 3/16/2014Keb' Mo' in Broadway" border="0" height="100" width="100" align="right"> KEB' MO'
Waterville Opera House
3/23-3/23/2014
Keb' Mo' has been making critically acclaimed albums since 1994 when he released his self-titled debut and became a fresh face in the blues / roots genre. That record proved to be an entryway that got many to sit up and take notice. But it was his second release, "Just Like You" in '96 that won him the first of three Grammys. It dared a deeper venture into the joyful and healing aspects of the blues and a more mainstream style. His genre-blending artfulness, intuitive lyrics, unique guitar style, distinctive voice, and magnetic charisma on stage have gained him a tremendously loyal fan base and the significant honor of being called, "a musician's musician." Though it seems that Keb' Mo' flies just under the radar of big name recognition, during his vibrant 18-year career he has been recognized with a vast number of honors, awards and nominations, including Grammys, BMI awards, and numerous WC Handy Blues Awards.

Now Playing Onstage in Maine - Week of 3/16/2014 CINDERELLA (ENCHANTED EDITION)
Sacopee Valley High School
3/20-3/23/2014
The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. This Enchanted Edition is based on the 1997 teleplay.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Adapted for the Stage by Tom Briggs; From the Teleplay by Robert L. Freedman
