Our 2018/2019 season line-up has been selected and subscriptions are now on sale.
SWEENEY TODD - music by Stephen Sondheim, book by Hugh Wheeler
Directed by John Fredo
With 8 Tonys under its belt, Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s Sweeney Todd has become a bloody, dramatic, yet funny musical theatre classic. The infamous 19th century tale of the revenge-seeking demon Barber of Fleet Street has shocked and awed audiences across the world. Director John Fredo brings together a cast featuring Kavinoky favorites from last season’s smash hit Mamma Mia! — Matt Witten as Sweeney is paired again with Loraine O’Donnell as Mrs. Lovett, with Peter Palmisano also starring as Judge Turpin. Mrs. Lovett’s meat pies will be available during the show…are you brave enough to sample?
A DOLL’S HOUSE PART 2 by Lucas Hnath
Directed by Robert Waterhouse
When last we left off with Nora Helmer in Henrik Ibsen's landmark 1879 drama A Doll's House, she walked out the door, leaving her family behind. Fresh off its award winning Broadway run, this play begins 15 years later with a knock on that same door —Nora has returned for a visit. Starring Kristen Tripp Kelley as Nora, this “sequel” comes almost 140 years after the original and answers the question: “what ever happened to Nora?” Funny as well as poignant, playwright Lucas Hnath made sure that her story didn’t end when the door slammed shut.
SPAMALOT by Eric Idle and John Du Prez
January 11th-February 3rd
Directed and Choreographed by Lynne Kurdziel Formato
Monty Python stalwart Eric Idle and composer John Du Prez adapt the classic film Monty Python and the Holy Grail into a musical featuring the Knights Who Say Ni, killer rabbits, accused witches, and other Python touches. Director Lynne Kurdziel Formato returns after directing last season’s smash hit’s The Producers and Mamma Mia!
TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD dramatized by Christopher Sergel
Directed by Robert Waterhouse
Adapted for the stage, To Kill a Mockingbird is the Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the Deep South—and the story of the heroism of one man in the face of blind hatred. Christopher Evans plays Atticus Finch in this classic American drama.
Equivocation by Bill Cain
April 26th-May 19th
Directed by David Lamb
William Shakespeare is commissioned by Sir Robert Cecil, the most powerful man in England, to write the true history of the Gunpowder Plot — a failed attempt to kill King James I. But as “Shag” and his actors rehearse their new play, they suspect the government’s version might be a product of “alternative facts.” Now, the greatest writer of all time must decide between writing a lie and losing his soul, or writing the truth and losing his head. A high-stakes political thriller with contemporary resonances, EQUIVOCATION gallops from the great Globe to the Tower of London to the halls of Parliament.
The remainder of our 2017/2018 season line-up includes the following:
Show Dates: March 2–25
Written by Richard Strand.
Directed by Robert Waterhouse.
When an escaped slave shows up at Fort Monroe demanding sanctuary, General Benjamin Butler is faced with an impossible moral dilemma—follow the letter of the law or make a game-changing move that could alter the course of U.S. history?
Part comedy, part historical drama, Ben Butler is clever without being glib, meaningful without being pretentious, and sidesplittingly funny. It’s a timeless exploration of social conscience and individual responsibility.
Show Dates: April 27 – May 20
Written by Larry Shue.
Directed by David Lamb.
At a rural fishing Lodge, Froggy, a British demolition expert, has brought along a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. He tells everyone that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone the fun really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should—the evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate; the fact that the minister's pretty fiancée is pregnant; and many other revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn't understand a word being said. All of that sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the "bad guys," and the "good guys" emerge triumphant.
