Now Playing Onstage in Vermont - Week of 7/27/2014 CAROUSEL
Greensboro Arts
7/24-8/2/2014
In a Maine coastal village toward the end of the 19th century, the swaggering, carefree carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, captivates and marries the naive millworker, Julie Jordan. Billy loses his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant and, desperately intent upon providing a decent life for his family, he is coerced into being an accomplice to a robbery. Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life and is sent 'up there.' Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day fifteen years later, and he encounters the daughter he never knew. She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her father's reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instills in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. It's easy to understand why, of all the shows they created, CAROUSEL was Rodgers & Hammerstein's personal favorite.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Book by Oscar Hammerstein II; Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Based on the Play LILIOM by Ferenc Molnar; As adapted by Benjamin F. Glazer; Original Dances by Agnes de Mille

Stowe Theatre Guild
7/16-8/2/2014
Celebrating its 70th anniversary as a classic of American musical theater, "On the Town" is the great collaboration of the composer, Leonard Bernstein, the choreographer, Jerome Robbins, and the writers, Betty Comden and Adolph Green. The story of three sailors on leave in "New York, New York" who have 24 hours to sing and dance through the city while trying to find love will indelibly remind you that "The Bronx is up, but the Battery's down" while reinforcing that the simple pleasures of life were what made wartime bearable.

Now Playing Onstage in Vermont - Week of 7/27/2014 THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD
The Flynn Center for the Performing Arts
7/31-8/3/2014
Framed in the hilariously melodramatic world of British music hall, this madcap comedy follows the actors at the Theatre Royale as they attempt to complete Charles Dickens' unfinished story of Edwin Drood. The sudden disappearance of Young Edwin throws everyone into a panic with suspicious fingers pointing every which way…including at the dashing but villainous John Jasper, Drood's lovely fiancee Rosa Bud, opium den proprietress Princess Puffer, and mysterious siblings Helena and Neville Landless from Ceylon. As the investigation pushes forward, everyone who came into contact with Drood joins the lineup of the suspects…and since Dickens died before he finished the book, the audience at each performance votes on a different ending to the show! Join us for a night of sheer fun as we take a rollicking romp through Victorian England!
