Good Shepherd Players
3/14-3/23/2014
The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical. When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Book by Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse; Suggested by `The Trapp Family Singers` by Maria Augusta Trapp

Now Playing Onstage in Norfolk - Week of 3/16/2014 THE IRISH TENORS
Sandler Center for the Performing Arts
3/25-3/25/2014
Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns, and Ronan Tynan have been touring together as The Irish Tenors since 1998, with sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall, Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall, The Hollywood Bowl, and major concert halls throughout the world. Their faces and voices are familiar to PBS audiences through several specials, including the "Ellis Island" recordings that sold a million CDs and DVDs. They are surely versatile, but for many, Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns, and Ronan Tynan are synonymous with Irish music. There is an aching bittersweet quality to much of Ireland's musical heritage, a melodic loveliness and emotional intensity that brings a tingle to the spine and a tear to the eye. The dazzling technique and depth of feeling that defines this musical genre, amplified to the third power, is the hallmark of The Irish Tenors.

Richmond CenterStage - Carpenter Theatre
3/23-3/25/2014
The cautionary tale of Sweeney Todd-a barber unjustly imprisoned by a corrupt judge-is gleefully dark entertainment. Todd returns to London, mad with revenge after his incarceration, and promptly slits the throats of the unlucky customers who enter his barbershop. But what to do with those pesky bodies? Enter Mrs. Lovett-his neighbor with a very secret recipe. Their gruesome plan seems to work... until things take a turn for the domestic and the Demon Barber's past catches up to him. Stephen Sondheim wrote the tuneful music and witty lyrics for this Tony Award-winning thriller. Director Ron Daniels, the original co-author of the stage adaptation that inspired the musical, is in his prime with this "killer production"* that features "the best of both opera and Broadway worlds."**

Now Playing Onstage in Norfolk - Week of 3/16/2014 ONCE UPON A MATTRESS
Mount Vernon Community Children's Theatre
3/21-3/30/2014
The 'G2K' Getting To Know Series: Uniquely adapted musicals specifically for youth performers. 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 it may not have been the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of beguiling 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. In this adaptation for pre-high school students, the content has been edited to better suit younger actors and audiences, but all the magic, hilarity and fun of the original are still in place. G2K? ONCE UPON A MATTRESS is the perfect show to introduce young people to the magic of live theater. PLEASE NOTE: All schools wishing to peruse or perform a G2K musical should apply through theMusic by Mary Rodgers; Book by Jay Thompson & Dean Fuller & Marshall Barer; Lyrics by Marshall Barer; Adapted by Tom Briggs

Generic Theater
3/14-4/6/2014
The Lazara Quartet is renowned worldwide for it's impeccable renditions of the world's classical masterpieces. But under that polished surface is all the drama of a high school lunchroom. The powerful passions of great musicians collide in "Opus," a touching, funny, and inspiring tale of a string quartet on a desperate search to replace a fired member in time for a performance at the White House. Time Out NY calls it "a tart and witty chamber piece about the politics and passions that threaten a classical string quartet. Like a good quartet, OPUS is an intimate, intense and profoundly moving conversation among artists."
