Now Playing Onstage in New Orleans - Week of 4/28/2013 SHOW BOAT
Slidell Little Theatre- Young Actor's Theatre
4/19-5/12/2013
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.Music by Jerome Kern; Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Based on the novel `Show Boat` by Edna Ferber
