RUMPELSTILSKIN Runs Now thru 3/16 at Imagination Stage
Anthony Hyatt will be the fiddle player, performing live for each performance. Anthony is not only a musician, but a keynote speaker and teaching artist, as well as the founder and principal of Moving Beauty, an organization that inspires groups of seniors in music and dance. Janet Stanford (Director) is the Artistic Director at Imagination Stage. She has helped transition Imagination Stage from a community-based arts organization to a nationally significant regional Theatre for Young Audiences theatre and arts education program. Janet has established a record for ongoing funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Theatre Communications Group, and The Shubert Foundation, among others. She has commissioned U.S. and international playwrights including Kevin Kling, Karen Zacarias, Joan Cushing, David S. Craig, and Charles Way, whose plays and musicals have gone on to be produced at other theatres in the U.S. and as far away as China. She is delighted that the summer 2012 production of The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe (which she wrote and directed) received two Helen Hayes Awards. The remainder of the creative team for Rumpelstiltskin includes Set Designer Daniel Pinha, Lighting Designer Rob Denton, Costume Designer Katie Touart, Sound Designer Christopher Baine, and Movement Specialist Gwen Grastorf.
The 2013-14 season's remaining shows include Lyle the Crocodile (Nov. 20-Jan. 10), Rumpelstiltskin (Feb. 5-March 16), Cinderella: the Remix (April 9-May 25), and The BFG (June 25-Aug. 10). Subscriptions and individual tickets are now available at 301?280?1660 or www.imaginationstage.org.
