Marquee Shows: Performances at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts

GODSPELL
September 8 – October 2, 2016
A Musical based upon the Gospel According to St. Matthew.
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz; Conceived by John-Michael Tebelak.
One of the most successful musicals in history, GODSPELL presents a whimsical and ultimately inspiring view of Jesus, as His followers and disciples re-enact parables and scenes from the New Testament, energy, laughter and love. This rock musical was an immediate hit when it opened off-Broadway in the spring of 1971, before moving to its triumphal run on the Great White Way. Many songs from the show became popular hits, including Day by Day, All Good Gifts, Turn Back Oh Man, and All For the Best.
Maggie Perrino, Director/Choreographer; Xan Jeffery, Music Director

THE FOREIGNER
October 20 – November 13, 2016
Book by Larry Shue
In a fishing lodge in Georgia, “Froggy” LeSeuer (a British demolition expert of all things) has brought along a friend – a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who cannot bear the thought of making conversation with strangers! So “Froggy,” tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Of course, Charlie overhears more than he should—the evil plans of a two-faced minister and his redneck associates; the fact that the minister’s pretty fiancée is pregnant; and a litany of revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn’t understand a word being said! The hilarity builds to a wild climax where things go uproariously wrong for the “bad guys,” and the “good guys” emerge triumphant! Jodie Meyn, Director

District Series Shows: Performances at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater

[title of show]
September 29 – Oct 16, 2016
Music and Lyrics by Jeff Bowen; Book by Hunter Bell
[title of show] takes its name from the space on the theater festival’s application form. It follows Hunter and Jeff and their friends as they brave the gauntlet of self-expression – writing a musical. In the course of the show, they write and perform their creation at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists. [Title of Show] is, above all, a love letter to the musical theatre-a uniquely American art form-and to the joy of collaboration. The musical received a Tony Award nomination for Best Book of a Musical in 2009.
Mike Sherman, Director; Jay Goodlett, Choregrapher; Erin Magner, Stage Manager

God of Carnage
November 17 – December 4, 2016
Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton
Following a playground fight between two boys, their parents meet to discuss the incident. But a rational discussion among adults quickly deteriorates into displays of tears, surprising outbursts and deeply hidden emotions laid bare. A streamlined dissection of the human animal, God of Carnage delivers the cathartic release of watching other people’s marriages go boom! The building tension between civilized surface and savage instinct brings shocked laughter, riveting drama and no-hold-barred suspense. Elegant, acerbic and entertainingly fueled on pure bile, God of Carnage is a wild theatrical ride. Winner of the 2009 Tony Award.
Kirstin Clippard, Director
