OPERA HOUSE PLAYERS

That the everyday lives of ?common? men and women should be so compelling and moving will surprise and inspire anyone who has ever punched a time clock.BRBRBased on Studs Terkel?s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, ?Working? paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman, the housewife, just to name a few. It?s a highly original look at the American landscape that?s simply impossible to forget.

"Oh, the Thinks You Will Think" as the spirit of imagination transports the colorful characters from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisiblenbsp; world of the Whos.brp/ppFor this version, certain plot elements have been simplified, it is in one act, and runs approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes - perfect for presentation in schools. (See span style="font-weight: bold;"ADDITIONAL FACTS/span below for details) br/ppThe story centers around Horton the Elephant, who finds himself faced with a double challenge--not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (and all the invisible Whos) from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie Lanbsp; Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him, the only one who recognizes "his kind and his powerful heart." Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant, in a story thatnbsp; makes you laugh and cry. br/ppFor complete information on this and other span style="text-decoration: underline;"/spana href="http://

The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time. brbrWith its minimal costumes, small band and virtually non-existent set, "The Fantasticks" is an intimate show which may be performed in virtually any space, engaging the audience's imagination and showcasing a strong ensemble cast. Its moving tale of young lovers who become disillusioned, only to discover a more mature, meaningful love is punctuated by a bountiful series of catchy, memorable songs, many of which have become standards.
