Heading into a weekend of OTHER DESERT CITIES -PLUS- Rehearsals and construction continue for Some Enchanted Evening!

We’re heading into a great UBU weekend with a staged reading of OTHER DESERT CITIES this Friday and Saturday night. A finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize, the production was nominated for five Tony Awards and has now become a hot ticket at regional theatres across the country. John Battalino directs a stellar cast in this dynamic staged reading of a “searing comedy with banter that dazzles and decimates…” You can buy your tickets right HERE, right NOW, and be sure to arrive early for the best seats, especially on Friday, since there is a talk-back after the performance. Don’t miss this one!



The sound of construction fills the theatre by day and the sound of singing fills it by night! Our fabulous winter fundraising musical —  SOME ENCHANTED EVENING: THE SONGS OF RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN — is coming together bit by bit!  Clockwise from top right, we can see volunteer Ron Burkhart sanding a brand new bench; the set platforms, featuring multiple levels for the performers and two elevated platforms for our amazing pianists, are quickly coming together;  and yes, Cheetos are a critical tool to have on hand when building and painting a set. Seriously. And finally, our gorgeous poster art (created by Subplot Studio!) provides a tantalizing hint at what’s to come on Opening Night, which by the way is VALENTINE’S DAY! (hint, hint…) 

Danielle Dutro McNamara, Gregory Gorrindo, Jackie Edwards, Phil Edwards and Katie Gucik are the very talented members of the cast for this delightful Rodgers & Hammerstein musical revue. They’ll be performing over 30 songs from some of the greatest Broadway hits of all time, including Carousel, Oklahoma, South Pacific, The King & I, The Sound of Music and many more. 
Director Kevin Harris and choreographer Zach Johnson show us their “better sides” as they work a song from South Pacific with the lovely ladies of the cast. 🙂
I’ve got a great idea! Why not treat your sweetheart to a romantic Valentine’s weekend by getting your tickets NOW for Some Enchanted Evening! What a wonderful way to show you really care for that Broadway music-loving partner of yours. I’m just sayin’…could be the best Valentine’s Day ever. And don’t forget that Saturday night is Martini Night. Doors open at 6 pm. I’ll tell her it was your idea. 
Buy your tickets HERE. Just add a bouquet of roses and you’re done.
Fridays & Saturdays @ 7pm | Saturdays & Sundays @ 2 pm

And I really hope you have a fabulous SUPER BOWL Sunday too! Of course my favorite part is the commercials. Sorry, but it’s true. And if you haven’t seen the new Budweiser Super Bowl commercial, check it out right HERE. But I’m warning you, it’s got a cuteness factor that’s off the charts. Clydesdales and puppies, who’d a thought?
Have a good weekend!
