Now Playing Onstage in Memphis - Week of 3/30/2014 THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS
Orpheum Theatre
4/1-4/1/2014
The year is 1933. Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Molly Sloan and her intrepid research assistant Timmy Mendez team up with a mysterious librarian from Flagstaff, Arizona, named Ben Wilcott. Together, they travel from Rumania to Scotland to the Alps to Tunis to the Robot Planet and finally to Imperial Zygon to defeat a terrible threat to the very future of humanity: an invading force of sludge-monsters from outer space known as the Zygonians. This one-of-a-kind theatrical experience mashes up radio drama with comic-books. Three actors, one Foley artist, and one musician perform all the voices and sound effects, while overhead; an illustrated outer-space graphic novel unfolds on a GIANT screen. The Intergalactic Nemesis is a spectacle unlike any other and it's for the kid in everyone.

Collierville High School
4/3-4/6/2014
Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile. Nellie learns that the mother of his children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, refuses Emile's proposal of marriage. Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable denies himself the fulfillment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl with whom he's fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie. When Emile is recruited to accompany Joe on a dangerous mission that claims Joe's life, Nellie realizes that life is too short not to seize her own chance for happiness, thus confronting and conquering her prejudices.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Book by Oscar Hammerstein II & Joshua Logan; Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize winning novel

Now Playing Onstage in Memphis - Week of 3/30/2014 I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE
University of Tennessee
4/8-4/12/2014
This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum know as 'the relationship.' Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, 'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?'Book and Lyrics by Joe DiPietro; Music by Jimmy Roberts

Now Playing Onstage in Memphis - Week of 3/30/2014 MIDTOWN OPERA FESTIVAL
Playhouse on the Square
4/3-4/13/2014
We launched this festival last year to showcase works scaled for intimate spaces, with special attention given to new and rarely performed operas. The Festival gives us an opportunity to make use of Playhouse on the Square - an acoustically perfect 347-seat theatre in Midtown Memphis. Year One of the festival was an overwhelming success. Our mainstage shows drew patrons from all over the country. And our ancillary ("fringe") events in the Festival Lounge were a big hit with patrons. These events included pre-show dinners and talks, as well as recitals from new American operas, children's opera, and late night, cabaret-style entertainment. (Last year's late-night events included some of the most memorable highlights of the Festival, such as Jamie Barton singing "The Alto's Lament," and Chad Sloan's rendition of "Craigslistlieder.") In April 2014, we'll present Year Two of the Festival. Building on the success of Year One, we're expanding the Festival to ten days. And, In addition to our mainstage operas, the festival will also feature the world premiere of an opera cycle entitled Ghosts of Crosstown.

Now Playing Onstage in Memphis - Week of 3/30/2014 JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
Youth Empowerment Through Arts and Humanities
4/4-4/20/2014
It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent '60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus' meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ's final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.Lyrics by Tim Rice; Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
