Now Playing Onstage in Nashville - Week of 5/25/2014 OKLAHOMA!
The Larry Keeton Theatre
5/14-5/31/2014
The 'G2K' Getting To Know Series: Uniquely adapted musicals specifically for youth performers. Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA! In this adaptation for pre-high school students, the content has been edited to better suit younger attention spans, but all the elements that make this show a classic are still in place. You and your students will be enchanted by the timeless story and the dazzling score, while at the same time learning about theater and its production. PLEASE NOTE: All schools wishing to peruse or perform a G2K musical should apply through theMusic by Rodgers, Richard; Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Based on the play GREEN GROW THE LILACS by Lynn Riggs; Original Dances by Agnes de Mille

Now Playing Onstage in Nashville - Week of 5/25/2014 ANNA IN THE TROPICS
ACT 1
5/16-5/31/2014
A traditional cigar factory in 1920s Florida is shaken to its very foundation when a new lector is hired to read aloud while workers hand-roll tobacco. His choice to begin with Tolstoy's classic, "Anna Karenina," affects all who listen; some think the story is romantic and ethereal, while others find plot lines hit too close to home. With the release of a new line of cigars, the factory, as well as the lives of those who call it home, will never be the same. "Anna in the Tropics" is directed by Paige Hall, and features Christopher Rogers, Jimi Brooks, Tammy Sutherland, Daniel DeVault, Betty Williams, Hallie Dyer, and Marcus Lackey.

Broadway's greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000 year old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM is a non-stop laugh-fest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan named Philia, for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors, and a showgirl or two.This unforgettable, hysterical musical allows a terrific ensemble of comedic actors to shine--"something for everyone, a comedy tonight!"

Now Playing Onstage in Nashville - Week of 5/25/2014 SHOW BOAT (GOODSPEED VERSION)
Lakewood Theatre Company
5/2-6/8/2014
Created for a Reduced Cast and Orchestra. Spanning the years from 1880 to 1927, this lyrical masterpiece concerns the lives, loves and heartbreaks of three generations of show folk on the Mississippi, in Chicago and on Broadway (and their life-long friends). The primary plot follows Magnolia, the naive daughter of the show boat captain, as she marries a gambler and moves with him to Chicago. His gambling continues as his debts compound, and soon he deserts her and their young daughter. A subplot concerns the potential arrest of Magnolia's selfless best friend on charges of miscegenation when it's discovered that she is mulatto, and her subsequent downward spiral into despair. The passing of time reunites Magnolia and her now-grown daughter with her family on the show boat as well as with her husband, who eventually returns offering a hopeful second chance at familial fulfillment. This Production Originally produced by Goodspeed Musicals, Michael P. Price, Executive Director, Directed by Rob Ruggiero. Music by Jerome Kern; Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Based on the novel `Show Boat` by Edna Ferber

Now Playing Onstage in Nashville - Week of 5/25/2014 JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
Hendersonville Performing Arts Company
5/29-6/15/2014
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
