Village Players [Fort Thomas]

Watch out. Because little girls? They grow up. They become beasts. Or women. Or both.
What happens when a group of girls are sent, year after year, into a dark wood to fight a mythic beast? Join us as we explore the fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood, twisting it into new avenues and discovering what happens to generations of women as they unravel the stories, trauma, and heartache that weave together our identities and instead discover the meaning of community strength and care.

CABARET
Cincinnati Actor’s Studio & Academy
July 29-Aug. 7
[Avondale]

Directed by Gina Cerimele-Mechley
Music directed by Joe Montgomery
Choreographed by Gina Cerimele-Mechley & Cecelia Gries

Cast: Alex Pletikapich as Emcee, Maddi O’Connell as Sally, Trey Finkenstead as Cliff, Nick Swope as Ernst, Kate Stuard as Fraulein Schneider, Kayamarie Roll as Fraulein Kost, Ethan Brooks Baker as Herr Schultz, Hannah Hodson as Rosie, Sabrina Mack as Lulu, Peyton Wright as Frenchie, Cassandra Reeves as Fritzie/Gorilla, Cecilia Gries as Helga, Chandler Murray as Texas, Jason Coffenberry as Bobby, Tre Taylor as Victor, Con Williamson as Herman, James Pinkley as Train Officer/Sailor/Max & Jonathon Armstrong and Kat Swift as Bodyguards

In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken with English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Mature content and triggering scenes.

July 21-24
Sorg Opera House [Middletown]

Directed by Denise A Schnieders
Music direction by Jovonné Lewis

The new musical, Freaky Friday, is based on the beloved 1972 novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films. It is developed by Disney Theatrical Productions expressly for licensing to theatres, and features a book by Bridget Carpenter – the co-executive producer and writer on the beloved TV hits, “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood.” Music and lyrics by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey – the Pulitzer Prize-winning composers of “Next to Normal” and “If/Then.”

When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic. By spending a day in each other’s shoes, Katherine and Ellie come to appreciate one another’s struggles, learn self-acceptance, and realize the immeasurable love and mutual respect that bond a mother and daughter.
