Thank you for a fantastic season!!!!

We at Opera House Theatre Company would like to extend our most heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of our audience members for making this an outstanding season of professional theatre!! Our 30th season was indeed everything we had hope it would be and the number of people who attended our shows this year was record-breaking! The loss of our Founder and Artistic Director, Lou Criscuolo, who passed on 12/13/14, had us heading into the first production with heavy hearts but determined to make Lou proud.
 
And with our new Artistic Director Alice Sherwood at the helm, w
e are sure we did just that!!

 

From the dirty cobblestones of Fleet Street to the rooftops with chimney sweeps in London, to the 1930s and Gershwin’s best music, to the Cook County Jail and the merry murderesses, we ended up laughing all the way to the forum! We covered just about as much as we could in one season!

 

 
But we’re not done yet!! Our 31st season has been announced and it is even more exciting than the last! More details will follow but here is the season for our 31st year:
 
Carousel
Monty Python’s Spamalot
1776
The Will Rogers Follies
City of Angels
 
Season tickets are on sale through our office now. (910) 762-4234 or operahousetheatre@yahoo.com
 
We’ll see you at the theatre!!

Opening September 2!!

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

 

Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Based on the plays of Plautus

 

Wednesday, September 2 – Sunday, September 6

 

Friday, September 11 – Sunday, September 13

 

Broadway’s greatest farce is witty, fast-paced, irreverent, and one of the funniest musicals ever written.  A joyous romp through ancient Rome, Forum is the story of Pseudolus, a crafty slave always scheming to earn his freedom.  His latest plan revolves around his young master, Hero, who has fallen in love with the courtesan next door, the lovely virgin Philia.  Filled with mistaken identities, pirates, kidnappings, groanworthy puns, stunning surprises, wild chases, bawdy humor, masquerades, deceptions, and the infectious energy of classic vaudeville, the plot follows Pseudolus’s long, convoluted, and hilarious path to freedom.

A 50 year-old musical based on 2,000 year-old plays, Forum remains a breath of fresh comic air, perfect for a summer evening.  Full of good clean dirty fun and fueled by infectious tunes and laugh-out loud lyrics, this is one toga party you do not want to miss!

It’s a comedy tonight!

 

All shows will be performed on the Main Stage of Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts.

 

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday performances begin at 8:00 pm.

 

Sunday performances begin at 3:00 pm.

CHICAGO OPENS AT THALIAN HALL!!

Chicago

Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse

Music by John Kander

Lyrics by Fred Ebb

Based on the play Chicago by Maurine Dallas Watkins

Wednesday, August 5 – Sunday, August 9

Friday, August 14 – Sunday, August 16

Friday, August 21 – Sunday, August 23

Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart await trial in Cook County Jail, each for their own impulsive homicide.  Both are guilty, but can they scheme their way out of a conviction and into their fifteen minutes of fame?  Is there room on top for two Merry Murderesses?  This dark parable of American justice is both a scathing satire and the sexiest musical Bob Fosse ever created.  The Kander and Ebb score is filled with songs that are now theatre classics, including “All That Jazz”, “Cell Block Tango”, “We Both Reached for the Gun”, “Mister Cellophane”, “Class”, and “Nowadays”, and the dancing is clever, smoldering, and non-stop.  With a cynical (and timely) view of murder as a game and celebrity the top prize, Chicago tells the story of its homicidal heroines with all the razzle dazzle the roaring 20s have to offer.

Crazy for You is a delightful boy-meets-girl story that takes a 1930s playboy all the way from New York to a tiny Nevada mining town to find the girl of his dreams.  This bubbly musical theatre cocktail is brimming with singing cowboys, tap-dancing showgirls, screwball comedy, and an earnest let’s-put-on-a-show enthusiasm that is intoxicating.  Full of unforgettable Gershwin tunes – “I Got Rhythm”, “But Not for Me”, “Nice Work If You Can Get It”, “Someone to Watch over Me”, “I Can’t Be Bothered Now”, “Naughty Baby”, “They Can’t Take That Away from Me”, “Embraceable You” –  this rambunctious explosion of song and dance is full of youthful exuberance and sassy joie de vivre.  Featuring all the glamour and romance of Broadway in its heyday, Crazy for You is everything you love about musical comedy!
