Marquee Season Shows at Covedale Center for the Performing Arts:
GUYS AND DOLLS
February 15 – March 11, 2018
Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser
Book by Jo Swirling and Abe Burrows
Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.
Tim Perrino, Director; Jeni Bayer Schwiers, Choreographer
April 5 – April 29, 2018
Music by Richard Rodgers
Book & Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Based on the play “Green Grow the Lilacs” by Lynn Riggs
Set in a Western Indian Territory just as the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and the cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to triumphant OKLAHOMA!
Maggie Perrino, Director/Choreographer; Christina Lalog Seal, Music Director
District Series Shows at The Warsaw Federal Incline Theater
FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS
Jan. 25 – Feb. 11, 2018
By Alan Ball
During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. They are Frances, a painfully sweet but sheltered fundamentalist; Mindy, the cheerful, wise-cracking lesbian sister of the groom; Georgeanne, whose heartbreak over her own failed marriage triggers outrageous behavior; Meredith, the bride’s younger sister whose precocious rebelliousness masks a dark secret; and Trisha, a jaded beauty whose die-hard cynicism about men is called into question when she meets Tripp, a charming bad-boy usher to whom there is more than meets the eye. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the women’s spirit.
Dee Anne Bryll, Director; Holly M. Davis, Stage Manager
Monty Python’s SPAMALOT
March 22 – April 8, 2018
Book and Lyrics: Eric Idle
Music: John Du Prez
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls? The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards, including “Best Musical,” and received 14 Tony Award nominations. Hilarious songs include: “I’m Not Dead Yet”, “His Name is Lancelot” and “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life!”
Matthew Wilson, Director; Brian Hoffman, Music Director; Kate Stark, Choreographer
