Bellevue Society for the Arts’ Children’s Theatre presents, AESOP, COME BACK!, by Joshua Mikel, Friday and Saturday, August 17 and 18 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, August 19 at 2:30 p.m. in the Hirt Theatre at 205 Maple Street, Bellevue.

In an attempt to prove that Aesop was history’s greatest fabulist, a group of storytellers cracks the spine of a massive edition of Aesop’s Fables, releasing the old man’s most memorable characters into the theater. The Tortoise, the Hare, the Hart, the Vines, the Simpletons, the Fox, the Lion, the Mouse, and a certain golden egg-laying Goose all take the stage, delightfully re-imagined; the Tellers alternate between narrating and joining the action. Bristling with comic energy, this play caters to a large cast and is perfect for audiences of all ages.

AESOP, COME BACK! is directed by Juliet Russell of Bellevue. It is sponsored by Bellevue Kiwanis, Bellevue Lions Club. It is produced with special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.

Tickets are $12 for adults 18+ and $8 for adults 60+/children/students through grade 12. Tickets go on sale beginning Friday, August 3.

Teen Theatre’s GUYS AND DOLLS July 13–21

Flier

 

Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, GUYS AND DOLLS is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. GUYS AND DOLLS takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually, everyone ends up right where they belong.

Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, GUYS AND DOLLS ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950. It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards, including Tony Awards, Drama Desks, and Oliviers. Frequently revived, the show has been done with numerous all-star casts.

Bellevue Society for the Arts’ Teen Theatre presents GUYS AND DOLLS, July 13, 14, 15, 20 and 21. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m., and the Sunday matinee performance is at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are $12 for adults 18+, and $8 for adults 60+/children/students through grade 12. Call 419-484-2787 for reservations beginning June 29.

GUYS AND DOLLS features a book by Abe Burrows and Jo Swerling, and music and lyrics by Frank Loesser. It is presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI) and sponsored by Bellevue Kiwanis Club. It is directed by Jennifer Miller, Bellevue. Leslie Childers, Bellevue, assists.

FORUM

A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM (Season Premiere)
Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Based on the plays of Plautus
Directed by Laura Horn
Sponsored by Mel & Jeanie Miller & Family
Open Auditions: July 9 & 10, 2018
Performances: September 7, 8, 9, 14, 15 & 16, 2018
Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM is a non-stop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two. This unforgettable, hysterical musical has “something for everyone, a comedy tonight!” (Cast: 8m, 2f, ensemble) Produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

Special Halloween Event! EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL returns Fridays and Saturdays in October!
Book and Lyrics by George Reinblatt
Music by Christopher Bond, Frank Cipolla, Melissa Morris, George Reinblatt
Directed by Lori & Steve Damschroder
Sponsored by Spookhouse Ventures, LLC
Performances: October 12, 13, 19, 20, 26 & 27, 2018
Based on Sam Raimi’s 80s cult classic films, EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL tells the tale of five college kids who travel to a cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force. And although it may sound like a horror, it’s not! The songs are hilariously campy and the show is bursting with more farce than a Monty Python skit. EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL unearths the old familiar story: boy and friends take a weekend getaway at abandoned cabin, boy expects to get lucky, boy unleashes ancient evil spirit, friends turn into Candarian Demons, boy fights until dawn to survive. As musical mayhem descends upon this sleepover in the woods, ‘camp’ takes on a whole new meaning with uproarious numbers like, “All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons,” “Look Who’s Evil Now” and “Do the Necronomicon.” Produced by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing, Inc.

makinggodlaugh-1MAKING GOD LAUGH
by Sean Grennan
Directed by Nancy Steyer
Open Auditions: October 1 & 2, 2018
Performances: November 30, December 1, 2, 7 & 8, 2018
MAKING GOD LAUGH is a family comedy that takes place in four scenes, each 10 years apart, set at various holidays. Starting in 1980, the newly-launched kids — a priest, an aspiring actress, and a former star football player — all return home, where we learn of their plans and dreams as they embark on their adult lives. The empty nest parents contend with their own changes too, as old family rituals and dubious recipes are trotted out and ancient tensions flare up. Over the course of 30 years’ worth of celebrations — Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Easter — we see how, despite what we may have in mind, we often arrive at unexpected destinations. As Woody Allen once said, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” (Cast: 3m, 2f) Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.

The Holiday Innkeeeper Cabaret Troupe open their 2018–19 season with, “Hark! The Holiday Innkeepers Sing!” December 14 at 7 p.m.

THE MIRACLE WORKER
by William Gibson
Directed by Cheryl Hansen Showalter
Sponsored by The Bellevue Hospital

Open Auditions: November 13 & 15, 2018
Performances: January 18, 19, 20, 25 & 26, 2019
Immortalized on stage and screen by Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, this classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. THE MIRACLE WORKER dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie’s success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word! (Cast: 7m, 7f) Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day February 15 at 7 p.m. with The Holiday Innkeepers and a “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.”

Tween Theatre presents Roald Dahl’s JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH
Book by Timothy Allen McDonald
Music and Lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul
Based on the book by Roald Dahl
Directed by Jodie Fleming-Arnold
Sponsored by Cornerstone Counseling
Open Auditions: January 2 & 3, 2019
Performances: March 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 & 10, 2019
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach… and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach, among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities, but after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building. BSA’s Tween Theatre is open to all children, ages 10–15, in any school system. Must be 10 years-old by January 2, 2018, and no older than 15 years-old by March 10, 2018.

LITTLE MARY SUNSHINE
Book, Lyrics and Music by Rick Besoyan
Directed by Steve Koenig
Open Auditions: February 25 & 26, 2019
Performances: May 3, 4, 5, 10 & 11, 2019
This hugely successful Off-Broadway show played for almost three years at New York’s Orpheum Theatre, winning an Obie award as the Best of the Season. Billed as “a musical about an old operetta,” LITTLE MARY SUNSHINE gently spoofs such old-time favorites as Rose Marie and Naughty Marietta, but has a personality all its own. The plot is a little bit of everything: Colorado Rangers led by stalwart Captain Jim; the lovely Mary Sunshine and her “naughty” maid Nancy; a chorus of giggling schoolgirls; and the ominous but benevolent Indian chief. Hearts are won and lost and won again in this delightful, laugh-filled, and charming show. (Cast: 13m, 10f, ensemble) Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

In a festive mood, the ladies of the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society mount an assault on a classic with their stage version of A Christmas Carol.

Gilbert and Sullivan’s hilarious, hopeful farce follows young Frederic, an orphan who has mistakenly been apprenticed to an ineffectual but raucous band of pirates.

Frederic’s melodious tones win over the heart of Major-General Stanley’s songbird daughter, but when the Pirate King discovers that General Stanley has lied about being an orphan to keep the pirates from stealing all of his belongings and carrying off his bevy of beautiful daughters, an ‘ingenious paradox’ may prevent the budding romance and lead to the death of ‘The very model of a modern Major-General.’ Produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
