Now Playing Onstage in Memphis - Week of 4/13/2014 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

Now Playing Onstage in Memphis - Week of 4/13/2014 ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD
University of Memphis, Mainstage
4/17-4/26/2014
An absurdist take on the story of Hamlet…as told from the skewed and unexpected perspective of two relatively minor characters - Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Comedy ensues as the two oft-confused supporting players take center stage bewildered by their mission and their reason for being. Madcap humor, witty wordplay, gripping tension and a heady swirl of ideas all come together in this story of two nobodies who long to star in their own story.

Germantown Community Theatre

This drama is one of the great comedy plays by William Shakespeare. Our version is an inventive adaptation by director Justin Asher that puts a comic twist on the story…setting it in a seaside trailer park. Viola, cross dresses and takes the man's name of Cesario. Viola enters the service of the Duke of Illyria, Orsino. Orsino longs for the love of a neighbouring countess. Viola (Cesario) then falls in love with Orsino. To add to the farce Viola's (Cesario) identical twin, Sebastian arrives on the scene. Living in Olivia's household is her uncle, Sir Toby Belch, a merry character. The steward of the household is the conceited Malvolio.The plot illustrates jealousy, mistaken Identity, cross-dressing and features fights and duels. In the end Sebastian and Olivia fall in love and marry. Orsino realises that it is Viola that he loves and she agrees to marry him. Sir Toby Belch and Maria also decide to marry! Twelfth Night ends and everyone, except Malvolio, is happy and Shakespeare speaks of the madness of love.
