Marquee Season Shows at Covedale Center for the Performing Arts:

THE MIRACLE WORKER
September 7 – October 1, 2017
By William Gibson
Immortalized on stage and screen by Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, this classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie’s success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: “water”. Winner of the 1960 Tony Award.
Greg Procaccino, Director; Steven Ducker, Production Stage Manager

YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN
October 19 – November 12, 2017
Book by Mel Brooks & Thomas Meehan; Music & Lyrics by Mel Brooks
Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. “It’s alive!” he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds. Young Frankenstein has all the panache of the screen sensation with a little extra theatrical flair added. With such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven, monstrously good entertainment.
Bob Brunner, Director; Ron Attreau, Music Director; Jeni Schwiers, Choreographer; Jenny Lutes, Production Stage Manager

As he seeks a meaningful life, she claims to seek only its pleasures. Meanwhile, the doomed romance between German boarding house owner Fräulein Schneider and her elderly suitor Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor, is headed for tragedy as Germany veers toward Fascism. Overseeing the action is the Master of Ceremonies, presenting the songs in the club as ominous political developments seep into the lives and hearts of the lovers. This Tony Award winning Best Musical includes the songs “Willkommen”, “Maybe This Time”, “The Money Song” and the all-time hit “Cabaret”.
