Mariemont Players presents TAKING MY TURN, the award-winning, critically acclaimed musical about people “in their prime” performed by people “in their prime,” at the Walton Creek Theater, 4101 Walton Creek Road (just East of Mariemont), September 12 through September 28, 2014.
The score (lyrics by Will Holt and music by Gary William Friedman) includes songs from a variety of inspirations: Broadway, classical, waltzes, ballads, jazz and gospel. The spoken words (book by Robert H. Livingston) represent stories, poems, remembrances, reflections and even complaints collected from interviews with everyday senior citizens. The result is fresh, a little feisty, full of poignancy and of humor. TAKING MY TURN was the winner of the 1984 Outer Critic’s Circle Award for Best Musical.
TAKING MY TURN is directed by Dennis Murphy, with music and vocal direction by John Nixon and produced by Michael Sauer and NancyAnn Storey, and features Chuck Ingram as Eric, H. Scott Nesbitt as John, Tony Wright as Charles, Robert Weidle as Benjamin, Betty Coulter as Dorothy, Nor-Rita Winters as Helen, Samantha Toberman as Edna and Jan Costello as Janet.
Performances will be at 8:00pm on September 12th, September 13th, September 19th, September 20th and September 26th; at 2:00pm on September 14th and September 28th; at 7:30pm on September 18th and September 25th; at 2:00pm & 7:00pm on September 21st; and at 3:00pm & 8:00pm on September 27th.
