Greater Boston Stage Company Announces Season 19 Special Events Including The Edward Twins and More
Greater Boston Stage Company kicks off its Season 19 Special Event line-up of stellar concerts and theatrical events with the always entertaining masters of impersonation, The Edwards Twins, from August 23 - 26, 2018. Direct from Las Vegas, twin brothers Anthony and Eddie Edwards perform 100 superstars with dazzling costumes, LIVE singing, and no gimmicks, just plain talent. Back by popular demand, it's a not-to-be-missed experience.
Then, celebrate New Year's Eve with four boys from Jersey with Let's Hang On, a tribute to Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons for two performances only on December 31, 2018, at 7:00pm and 10:00pm. It's the perfect way to ring in the new year, as GBSC provides the party hats, noisemakers, and a complimentary glass of champagne.
Rounding out the concert series is Ted Vigil: John Denver Tribute playing February 15 - 17, 2019. Come relive all of John Denver's greatest hits from "Take Me Home Country Road" to "Rocky Mountain High."
In addition to the concert series, there are two notable special theatrical events this season. First is GBSC's holiday offering for families, Tiny Tim's Christmas Carol. Adapted from the classic Charles Dickens' novel by Tony Award winner Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Crazy for You) and his son Jack, this heartwarming hour-long Christmas tale is full of family fun for all ages. Tiny Tim's Christmas Carol runs in repertory with It's a Wonderful Life from December 8 - 23, 2018.
Then, from February 22 - 24, 2019, Greater Boston Stage Company welcomes back Rohina Malik, this time with friends Kim Schultz and Susan Stone, with Lucia Thomas on violin, oud, and guitar for Keeping Faith: Sisters of Story. Each storyteller tells three stories inspired by their respective faith journeys. Ms. Malik graced this stage last season in her inspiring, critically-acclaimed one-woman show, Unveiled. Says Producing Artistic Director, Weylin Symes, "While Rohina was in town last year I had the opportunity to see her perform Keeping Faith alongside Susan and Kim and I immediately thought it would be a perfect follow-up to Unveiled. Rohina is devoted to the idea of interfaith dialogue and, in this moment, I think the notion of listening to, and getting to know, people of differing faith is absolutely vital."
Up next, Greater Boston Stage Young Company students will be taking the stage during the Summer Festival, August 9-19, 2018. GBSC's Young Company offers year-round theatrical training and performance opportunities for students in grades 1-12. The Summer Festival is the culmination of 5 weeks of preparation by the students and their professional Directors, Music Directors, Choreographers, Stage Managers, and Design Team. The Young Company Summer Festival includes 6 fully staged productions: family friendly Madagascar Jr. and the upbeat classic Footloose, while Shrek will bring all the Mother Goose stories to life - with a twist! High school students will continue the fun with the heartwarming musical Big Fish, as well as The Great and Terrible Wizard of Oz - a modern take on the classic, beloved story, and finally the extraordinary adventures of Pippin!
