Now Playing Onstage in Norfolk - Week of 4/06/2014 MY HEART IN A SUITCASE
Sandler Center for the Performing Arts
4/7-4/7/2014
The gripping and poignant production is a tribute to the strength of the human spirit. My Heart In A Suitcase hopes to touch the hearts and minds of old and young alike by adapting a survivor's story to inspire audiences to read and learn more about the Holocaust by weaving an emotional bond through art. The show reveals to young people what happened in Germany and in other occupied nations prior to and during World War II and how a heroine survived thanks to her own courage and the generosity of others. The production teaches the importance of combating intolerance. The ultimate goal is to motivate children not only to appreciate reading and the theatre but also to love and respect their fellow human beings.

The Troubadours
4/11-4/12/2014
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
