RUMORS

FEBRUARY 21 – 24, 2013

By Neil Simon

DIRECTED BY KEITH WEIRICH

Neil Simon, America’s best-known multi-award winning playwright, excels in presenting the frustrations and vagaries of life with delicious humor. His comic concoction RUMORS is a madcap murder-mystery dinner party where four well-dressed couples gather at the home of Charlie and Myra Brock – to celebrate the wedding anniversary of their hosts. However, they arrive to find that their host is lying upstairs with a bullet hole in his ear lobe, and Myra is nowhere to be seen. One by one, each couple is pitched headlong into high-voltage hilarity as the friends try frantically to protect their host, and themselves, by hiding the evening’s events from the rumor mill of the outside world.

INTO THE WOODS

MAY 3 – 12, 2013

Book by  James Lapine
Music & Lyrics by  Stephen Sondheim

DIRECTED BY KEITH WEIRICH
MUSICAL DIRECTION BY HENRY KOPCZYNSKIE III

An ambivalent Cinderella? A blood-thirsty Little Red Riding Hood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? They’re all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s fractured fairy tale masterpiece INTO THE WOODS. When a Baker and his Wife learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell, swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel and Jack (of beanstalk fame). Everyone’s wish is granted at the end of Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with disastrous results. What begins a lively irreverent fantasy – in the style of The Princess Bride – becomes a moving lesson about moral responsibility and the stories we tell our children.

One of Sondheim’s most popular works, INTO THE WOODS is a timeless yet relevant piece and a rare modern Broadway musical classic.

Musical, Rated PG
