2:00pm - July 27; August 3

Oliver!

Book, music and lyrics by Lionel Bart

Jacoby Auditorium

Oliver Twist is sold to an undertaker after asking for more dinner at the orphanage. Escaping to London he is taken in by Fagin to join his gang of child pickpockets. Wrongly accused of a theft he meets a more kindly gentleman who takes him in, to the concern of one of Fagin's old pupils, the violent Bill Sykes. Oliver meets Nancy, Sykes' girl whom Oliver comes to trust.

Oliver is produced by special arrangements with Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc., New York, NY.

 


Always ... Patsy Cline
7:30pm - July 25, 27, 28, 31; August 1, 3
2:00pm - July 27; August 3

Always ... Patsy Cline

Written and originally directed by Ted Swindley – based on a true story

Centerstage Theatre

The story is based on Cline’s friendship with Houston housewife Louise Seger. Having first heard Cline on the "Arthur Godfrey Show" in 1957, Seger became an immediate and avid fan of Cline's. By coincidence, she meets Cline in 1961. The two women struck up a friendship that was to culminate in Cline spending the night at Seger's house--a friendship that lasted until Cline's untimely death in a plane crash in 1963. The show combines humor, sadness and reality. It offers fans who remember Cline while she was alive a chance to look back, while giving new fans an idea of what seeing her was like and what she meant to her original fans.

Gutenberg! The Musical!
8:00pm - July 25, 26, 27; August 1, 2, 3, 4

Gutenberg! The Musical!

Written by Scott Brown & Anthony King

Swanson Ampitheatre

In this two-man musical spoof, a pair of aspiring playwrights perform a backers’ audition for their new project - a big, splashy musical about printing press inventor Johann Gutenberg. With an unending supply of enthusiasm, Bud and Doug sing all the songs and play all the parts in their crass historical epic, with the hope that one of the producers in attendance will give them a Broadway contract – fulfilling their ill-advised dreams.

Gutenberg! The Musical! is produced by special arrangements with Samuel French, Inc.

Medea

by National Theatre Live

UCC Campus, Centerstage Theatre

Terrible things breed in broken hearts. Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she’s left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day’s grace. It’s time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear. Helen McCrory (The Last of the Haussmans) takes the title role in Euripides’ powerful tragedy, in a new version by Ben Power, directed by Carrie Cracknell.

Noises Off

by Michael Frayn

UCC Campus, Centerstage Theatre

Winner! The 1982 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Play. Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing's On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.

Twelfth Night

by William Shakespeare
