Photo Flash: Area Premiere of LYSISTRATA JONES Opens Today at Red Branch Theatre Company
Red Branch Theatre Company (RBTC) continues its 2017 season entitled Mad About You with Lysistrata Jones, a musical about hoops, hope, and love. The production that will run at Drama Learning Center, where Red Branch is the professional theatre in residence, runs from August 4-26.
Travel from Ancient Greece to present day Athens University in this updated retelling of the classic Greek play. Featuring a new, infectious score, Lysistrata Jones follows "Lyssie J," a spunky transfer student. She and her brigade of sisters keep their physical affections under lock and key until their basketball player boyfriends start winning games, learning an important life lesson: absence might make the heart grow fonder, but abstinence makes the heart grow fondest. See what happens when women take fate into their own hands when the men around them refuse in this musical re-boot of Aristophanes' bawdy ancient comedy.
Individual tickets available for purchase online at www.redbranchtheatrecompany.com or by calling the box office at (410) 997-9352.
