Now Playing Onstage in Rhode Island - Week of 3/30/2014 ROCKAPELLA
Stadium Theatre Performing Arts Centre
4/4-4/4/2014
Rockapella's latest show & album, entitled Motown & More, pays tribute to the music of Motown with unique versions of hit songs from The Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, and more. Among other Rockapella favorites, the concert includes The O'Jays' "Use Ta Be My Girl", Stevie Wonder's "My Cherie Amour", The Temptations' "My Girl", "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", "Papa Was A Rollin' Stone", The Jackson 5's "Blame It On The Boogie", The Commodores' "Brick House", and More! Gleefully, they are NOT your childhood Rockapella. Rather they've become one of the world's most sophisticated and lasting pop vocal groups. With the wild success of the TV smash "Glee" and a cappella groups reigning in the Corner of Cool on college campuses, there is clearly a hunger for exciting live vocal performance. The little miracle that keeps the crowds coming back year after year and constantly draws new fans is Rockapella's astonishing full-band sound. A sound that seems to be impossible coming from just five guys with microphones. No instruments, no tracks, no mirrors -- and their hands never leave their wrists. "We're making every bit as much music as the whole "Glee" chorus -- but with only five guys," says Rockapella's human beat-box Jeff Thacher.

Now Playing Onstage in Rhode Island - Week of 3/30/2014 BLASTED
The Wilbury Theatre Group
3/13-4/5/2014
A middle-aged man, Ian, and young woman, Cate, enter a hotel room. As private and public violations collide, and personal violations open doors to progressively greater violent acts, the world fragments around them. Kane's best-known and most controversial play Blasted was written in 1995 and directly inspired by the war in Yugoslavia, a multicultural jerry-rigged nation that consumed itself in civil-war violence. It was Kane's insight that disclosed that many of the same historical influences which led to this violence were just as present in the streets of our western cities today as they were in the streets of Srebrenica. "Astounding drama...Ms. Kane's chilling contention is that it's not such a stretch for any of us." -The New York Times "A one of a kind theatrical experience." -Theatermania "[Kane's] surreal vision has taken on authentic reality for any nation that happens to be at war." -Variety About The Wilbury Group production Blasted by Sarah Kane Directed by Josh Short Alexander Cook*, Ian Amber Kelly, Cate Jo-an Belanger Peralta, Soldier Fight Direction by Normand Beauregard Projections by Mike Commendatore & Adam O'Brien Lighting Design by Jason Eckenroth Sound Design by Cyrus Leddy Costume Design by Sylvi Re Scenic Design by Monica Shinn Stage Management by Alex Maynard Assistant Director, Kira Hawkridge; Production Manager, Seth Finkle. *Member of Actors' Equity Association, the Union of Professional Actors and Stage Managers in the United States.?

Gamm Theatre
3/6-4/13/2014
An eerie prophecy and unchecked greed lead to an ambitious couple's downfall in the Bard's timeless tale of absolute power that corrupts absolutely. The brave soldier Macbeth, fresh from another blood-soaked victory, encounters a trio of witches who prophesy that he will become King of Scotland. Bolstered by supernatural omens and pushed by his indomitable wife, Macbeth kills the current king and claims the throne. Plagued by paranoia and guilt on their increasingly bloody path to glory, the seemingly untouchable Lord and Lady Macbeth get everything they ever wished for... but nothing they ever expected. Shakespeare's darkest tragedy, Macbeth moves at the pace of a thriller and keeps you riveted to your seat through to its brutal ending.

Ocean State Theatre
3/26-4/13/2014
Ocean State Theatre presents the Pulitzer Prize and Tony® Award-winning play, The Diary of Anne Frank, a beautiful story from one of the darkest periods in history. Through the diary entries of 13-year-old Anne Frank, the play tells the story of a Jewish family forced into hiding in an effort to avoid Nazi persecution during World War II. Isolated from the outside world, her family and three others lived in constant fear of being discovered. They remained hidden for two years and one month, until their betrayal, which resulted in their deportation to Nazi concentration camps. After the war, the pages of Anne's diary were discovered on the floor of the annex where the family had been hiding. This moving, true story is a testament to the human spirit and classic theatre not to be missed.
