2011 Season Announced!!

Opera House Theatre Company 2011 Season

************************************************************

 The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

Book by Larry L. King and Peter Masterson – Music and Lyrics by Carol Hall

Wednesday, February 16 – Sunday, February 20

Friday, February 25 – Sunday, February 27

This energetic and bawdy Broadway hit recounts the (mostly) true story of the Chicken Ranch, a Texas brothel.  It’s business as usual for Miss Mona and the girls until Melvin P. Thorpe, a crusading television anchor, turns his cameras at the house of ill repute.  Small town vice faces off with righteous indignation in this funny look at sex and politics in the Lone Star State.  Full of homespun humor, bodacious characters, and a country and western score that will have you whoopin’ and hollerin’ in the aisles, this show is guaranteed to brighten up the dreary days of February.  Leave the little ones at home, though; parental discretion is advised.

Amadeus

By Peter Shaffer

Wednesday, April 27 – Sunday, May 1

Friday, May 6 – Sunday, May 8

In the court of the Austrian Emperor Josef, Antonio Salieri is the influential court composer.  However, his fame and position mean nothing to him once he hears the music of Mozart.  Cursed with an ear for music that far surpasses his own ability to create it, Salieri knows in an instant what no one else around him can hear – Mozart is possessed of a truly divine gift.  Consumed by envy, Salieri turns his anger on a God who would choose to bless the infantile and spoiled Mozart with the gift that Salieri feels he himself deserves.  Swearing his revenge, Salieri sets out to foil the Almighty’s plan and destroy Mozart.  Combining fiction and history, author Peter Shaffer sets up an epic battle of trust and betrayal, of love and blinding hatred that leads to a shattering conclusion.

The King and I

Music by Richard Rodgers – Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

Based on Anna and the King by Margaret Landon

Wednesday, June 8 – Sunday, June 12

Friday, June 17 – Sunday, June 19

Friday, June 24 – Sunday, June 26

It’s 1962, and the western world is closing in on Siam.  Knowing his family will need to understand this new world to survive it, the King of Siam hires Anna Leonowens, an English widow, as a tutor for his many wives and children.  Although they are separated by their very different cultures, Anna and the King grow to understand, respect, and – eventually – care for one another.  This unique love story is told with one of the most glorious scores ever written.  Rodgers and Hammerstein’s immortal songs include “Getting to Know You”, “We Kiss in a Shadow”, “Something Wonderful”, “Shall We Dance?”, and the hauntingly beautiful “Hello, Young Lovers”.  The King and I is one of the all-time marvels of the musical stage and is not to be missed.

Annie

Book by Thomas Meehan – Music by Charles Strouse – Lyrics by Martin Charnin

Based on Little Orphan Annie by permission of the Tribune Media Services, Inc.

Wednesday, July 6 – Sunday, July 10

Friday, July 15 – Sunday, July 17

Friday, July 22 – Sunday, July 24

Leapin’ Lizards!  The popular comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world’s best-loved musicals.  Featuring one of Broadway’s most memorable scores, this contemporary classic follows the adventure of Little Orphan Annie as she outwits the evil Miss Hannigan, befriends President Roosevelt, and finds a new family with billionaire Oliver Warbucks – and a lovable mutt named Sandy.  You can bet your bottom dollar that Annie will delight and entertain the entire family!

Hairspray

Book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan – Music by Marc Shaiman – Lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman

Based on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters

Wednesday, August 3 – Sunday, August 7

Friday, August 12 – Sunday, August 14

Friday, August 19 – Sunday, August 21

Good morning Baltimore!  It’s time to wake up and shake off those oh-so-drab 50s!  Change is in the air and big hair, bright colors, and dance dance dance are the new order!  Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and a bigger heart, loves to dance more than anything.  Her life’s ambition is to win a place on the local TV hit “The Corny Collins Show” and be crowned Miss Teenage Hairspray 1962.  Can this larger than life teen dance queen vanquish the popular girl, integrate a TV station, and win true love – singing and dancing the whole while – without denting her ‘do?  Exuberant, upbeat, and unbelievably catchy, Hairspray offers up a plus size beehive of entertainment!

Man of La Mancha

Book by Dale Wasserman – Music by Mitch Leigh – Lyrics by Joe Darion

Wednesday, August 31 – Sunday, September 4

Friday, September 9 – Sunday, September 11

Late in the sixteenth century, failed author-solider-actor and tax collector Miguel de Cervantes has been thrown into a dungeon by the Spanish Inquisition.  To save his manuscript from the fire, he puts on an entertainment for his fellow prisoners.  He presents the story of Alonso Quijana who, overwhelmed by the evil that men do toward men, puts aside his sanity and sets out into the world as a knight errant, dubbing himself Don Quixote de La Mancha, champion of the oppressed and righter of wrongs.  A powerful blend of tragedy, romance, comedy, and adventure, Man of La Mancha is a passionate and moving story of triumph and redemption in the darkest of circumstances.

************************************************************************************************************************

 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.

For those who missed it…

 

The OHTC Womanless Beauty Pageant fundraiser was a HUGE success! For less than the cost of a movie with popcorn, this past Saturday night’s audience was treated to 12 wonderfully talented, impeccably dressed, hysterically funny “girls” who strutted their stuff for a great cause! The field of 12 was narrowed down to five, then three with the top honors going to Miss “Ginger Snaps” (Miss Congeniality), Miss “Wilma Fingerdo” (People’s Choice Princess) and the OHTC winner for Most Womanless 2010 Miss “Philla Pina”!

It was a night that many will not soon forget. Please enjoy the slideshow below for a sample of the fun and frivolity that took place. And hope to see you there next year when Miss “Philla Pina” gives up her crown!
