Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt bring the bold, adventurous theatrical techniques they pioneered in THE FANTASTICKS a step further with CELEBRATION, an allegorical winter's tale.

On a magical New Year's Eve, a young Orphan stumbles into the home of the richest man in the world, whose bizarre entourage includes a beautiful fallen Angel. With the Orphan's help, the jaded Mr. Rich regains his humanity, only to find himself locked in ritualistic battle with the youth for the Angel's love.

The show's small cast is perfect for an intimate community theatre space. Audiences are encouraged to participate in this very original piece of theatre.

by Shari Barrett - Aug 19, 2017

From the award-winning Celebration Theatre, producers Nathan Frizzell and Tom DeTrinis, whose hilariously twisted minds brought you Go-Goy Boy Interrupted, comes the hilarious solo show SO LONG BOULDER CITY, a satire of the almost-Best Picture winner LA LA LAND. Its genesis began when co-writer/star Jimmie Fowlie and co-writer/director Jordan Black watched the movie and couldn't help but ask themselves what exactly about Mia's poorly-produced, designed and attended one-woman show in the movie was supposed to have launched her highly successful career? And since there was no definite answer to be found, the two created their own hysterical spin on the glorious mystery. (more...)
