Dorothy Gale Lands at Cincinnati Christian Schools Theatre

CCST_The Wizard of Oz logoThis Spring, Cincinnati Christian Schools is presenting THE WIZARD OF OZ, the timeless tale of Dorothy Gale’s quest to rediscover the importance of home, family, and friends. Lost in a land of munchkins, jitterbugs, and poppies, Dorothy finds herself among a trio of humble companions. A Scarecrow in search of a brain, a Tin Man in search of a heart, and a Cowardly Lion in search of some nerve become an unlikely set of new friends for the Kansas farm girl. The four follow the yellow brick road in order to find personal redemption through a mysterious and renowned wizard in the land of Oz.

We welcome you to a night of wonder, whimsy, and wizardry. With more than 60 students, the cast of THE WIZARD OF OZ, is sure to impress with their vocal talent, dancing, and intricate personalities. The beloved characters truly come to life in this stage adaptation of the 1930s flick. The memorable songs and well-known catchphrases are a delight for all ages, whether it’s your first time seeing this story or a walk down memory lane as you reflect on a childhood filled with lions, tigers, and bears!

The fantastical production will perform at the Parrish Auditorium the first weekend in March.

HELLO, DOLLY! at Cincinnati Christian Schools

CCS_Hello Dolly logo

HELLO, DOLLY!, the blockbuster Broadway hit, bursts with humor, romance, high-energy dancing, and some of the greatest songs in musical theater history. The romantic and comic exploits of Dolly Gallagher-Levi, turn-of-the-century matchmaker and ‘woman who arranges things,’ are certain to thrill and entertain audiences again and again. The show’s memorable songs include “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” “Ribbons Down My Back,” “Before the Parade Passes By,” “Hello, Dolly!,” “Elegance,” and “It Only Takes a Moment.”

Theatre has always been a place of brief escape from the chaos, stress, and frenzy of reality. To enter a world where you can fall in love in just one evening and where it’s perfectly acceptable to break out in song, just may be the place to spend an evening out of your busy schedule. It’s good to take a break and be reminded of how simple life can be if you have some love, joy, and friendship. If you do decide to come, be prepared to laugh and “hum” along with a Broadway classic.

The performances will be performed at the Parrish Auditorium the first weekend in March. This fast-paced, energetic musical is great for all ages. With more than 40 students, the cast of HELLO, DOLLY! is sure to impress with their vocal talent, dancing, and hilarious performances.

Featuring Olivia Reese as Dolly Gallagher-Levi, Parker Wilhelm as Horace Vandergelder, Luke Schlake as Cornelius Hackl, Zachary Schlake as Barnaby Tucker, Maggie Brown as Irene Molloy, and Merrick Heid as Minnie Fay.

Directed by Leah Perry.

Show Dates:

  • March 7, @ 7pm

THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE Comes to Cincinnati Christian Schools

CCS_The Women of Lockerbie logo“When evil comes into the world, it is the job of the witness to turn it to love.” This quote is from Cincinnati Christian Schools’ first show of the 2018-19 school year, THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE, which debuts on October 19th. It is not the usual story that graces a high school stage. It is filled with sorrow and grief, yet the themes are cathartic, compelling, and gripping. The actors have been working hard for the past three months on developing authentic portrayals of hope, mourning, trust, and endurance.

The play tells the story of a mother from New Jersey who is roaming the hills of Lockerbie, Scotland, looking for her son’s remains that were lost in the crash of Pan Am 103 in 1988. She and her husband meet the women of Lockerbie, who are fighting the U.S. government to obtain the clothing of the victims found in the wreckage. The women, determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love, want to wash the clothes of the dead and return them to the victim’s families. Their plea brings them up against George Jones, the American government representative in charge of the warehouse storing the remains from the Pan Am 103 crash. The play is loosely inspired by a true story, although the characters and situations in the play are purely fictional. Written in the structure of a modern Greek tragedy, it is a poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate.

“The story is powerful, the script is beautiful, the characters are convicting, and the context is startling,” said Leah Perry, the head of the department and director of this production. “But, it’s the performances and work of the students that make me proud to share this show. It’s worth it to be reminded of joy, faith, hope, and trust. It’s worth it to expose yourself to the hard, the painful, the uncomfortable, the awkward.”

The show is performing at the Fairfield Community Arts Center, where the stage has been made to look like the hills of Lockerbie, Scotland, and running water will flow down a creek into a pond. Completely built by Cincinnati Christian Schools students in their Technical Theatre class, the students are looking forward to submitting their production into this season of Cappies.

Cincinnati Christian Schools’ production of THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE will definitely be a tear-jerker due to the mature and very capable performances of the actors. The play has been advertised with the hashtags “#tearsarefree” and “#ticketsarenot.” Know that as an audience member, you are stepping into an environment of great energy and a driven motivation to educate you on what you may not know or remember about a terrorist attack which spurred on great fear in our country. The purpose of theatre is to create a space where challenging and provoking perspectives can be introduced to the public, and THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE offers just that.

Featuring Luke Schlake as Bill Livingston, Merrick Heid as Madeline Livingston, Maggie Brown as Olive Allison, Parker Wilhelm as George Jones, Olivia Reese as Hattie, and Mackenzie Turner, Briahna Bush, Abigail Bowling, and Megan Ramsey as the Women.

Directed by Leah Perry.
