A musical comedy by Jim Luigs, with music by Scott Warrender. Wagner’s Ring Cycle is spun as a witty Texas fable with five actors playing more than 30 outrageous characters at breakneck speed. Songs run the gamut from Broadway to Texas swing, from jazz to country western. Mismatched lovers who meet on the day of their shotgun double-wedding, three generations of feuding families, wild-west lariat tricks, a synchronized swimming revue, and the sweetest two-step ever to slide across the stage all add up to wild comedy. Your sides will ache with laughter. Directed by Jacqueline Jones. Tickets on sale Apr 1.
May 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, & 19.
Additional performance on Sat, May 18 at 2:30 p.m.
A comedy by Neil Simon. Leon Tolchinsky is ecstatic. He’s landed a terrific teaching job in an idyllic Russian hamlet. When he arrives he finds the town has been cursed with chronic stupidity for 200 years, and it’s his job to break the curse. No one tells him that if he stays over 24 hours and fails to break the curse, he becomes stupid too. A bright, fresh, funny, witty, warm, and happy comedy! Directed by Amy Berlin. Tickets on sale June 10.
July 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 27, & 28.
