Calamity Jane

by Charles K. Freeman
Director:  Susan Nanning-Sorenson
November 11, 12, 17, 18, 19 @ 7:30 pm, & Nov 19 @ 2:00 pm

This musical Western is adapted from the celebrated stage-play and film. ‘Calam’ dresses like a man, totes a gun and drives the Deadwood City stagecoach. Well-meaning, but disaster-prone, she tries to help the local saloon proprietor out of a jam by promising to fetch a music-hall star from Chicago. A hilarious comedy, it nevertheless has many tender moments and some very famous numbers, including Secret Love, Black Hills of Dakota, Deadwood Stage and Windy City.

Agatha Christie's A Murder is Announced

adapted by Leslie Darbon
Director: Jeanne Leep
February 24, 25, March 3, 4 @ 7:30, March 4 @ 2:00 pm

An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock's Victorian house. The victim is not one of the house's several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns, and Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution at some risk to herself in a dramatic confrontation just before the final curtain.

Student Directed One Acts 

produced by Jeanne Leep
May 4, 5, 6 @ 7:30 pm, May 6 @ 2:00 pm

Contemporary one-act plays directed by Edgewood Theatre Arts students: fresh, funny, thought-provoking and smart, this variety pack of plays showcases the talents of our students onstage and behind the scenes.

Theatre For Young Audiences - Elsewhere and Inbetween

Director: Susan Nanning-Sorenson
May 9 @ 1:00 pm & 7:00 pm in the Anderson Auditorium

Mystical, Magical Fantasy is currently the most popular theme in children's literature. Why is this so? What is it that draws children to these magical, mythical places and characters? In this year's Theatre for Young Audiences production we will explore the World of Fantasy in today's most popular Children's Literature and create an exciting new play that reflects why this theme is such a favorite!
