WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 2,2019 - LEND ME A TENOR (Morpheus Theatre)
It's September 8, 1934 - the biggest night in the history of the Cleveland Gran Opera Company. The world famous tenor, Tito Merelli, is set to appear for one night only as the star of the opera at the 10 year anniversary gala season opening. Tito arrives late, and through a hilarious series of mishaps, he is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. Tito is believed to be dead and everyone is in a panic. In a frantic attempt to save the evening and fool the audience, Tito is replaced by Max, an assistant with little stage training. But when Tito awakes and gets into costume the chaos of mistaken identities, mixed signals and misunderstandings have everyone scrambling.
WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 11, 2019 - MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET (Morpheus Theatre)
Based on the movie of the same name this is a perennial holiday favorite which we want to believe in where love, decency and generosity of spirit are there own rewards.
WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 5, 2020 - THE GOOD GAME (Confederation Theatre)
Four old timers from a championship team 30 years ago are suiting up for a match against the current Junior team. Taking place in the arena dressing room, there's a lot of reversion to roles played when they were teenagers, and revelations of how life unfolded over the years. Laughs abound in the locker room banter between Charlie Boyd, the goalie who took too many pucks to the head, flamboyant French-Canadian Francois "Pinkie" Lavoc, former team captain Zach Taylor whose NHL dream was dashed by injuries, and the team's enforcer-turned-English-professor, C.J MacDonald.
WEDNESDAY MARCH 25.2020 - CABARET (Front Row Centre Players)
In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920's 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.
WEDNESDAY MAY 6, 2020 - THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE (Morpheus Theatre)
One of the most beloved Gilbert and Sullivan operettas combines whimsy. light-hearted satire and piratical characters with stirring music. Jam packed with sentimental swashbuckling pirates, a completely dotty Major General and a bumbling bunch of hopeless but hilarious policemen, what could possibly go wrong
WEDNESDAY JUNE 17, 2020 - DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS (Front Row Centre Players)
The play takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by taking rich ladies our of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking the compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together, only to find this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement; the first one to extract $50,000. from a young female target, heiress Christine Colgate, wins and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end
