DMTC’s 29th season dishes out a little bit of everything

By
From page A7 | August 28, 2013 |

From Knights who say “NI!” to pick-pocketing street urchins, DMTC is proud to announce its 29th season of musicals. This  line-up includes comedy, drama, moving songs, and two Pulitzer Prize winners. All shows are at the Jean Henderson Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive.

The following is a brief look at the upcoming season:

* “Monty Python’s Spamalot” — Sept. 13-Oct. 6: Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy “Monty Python and The Holy Grail,” “Spamalot” retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people. Recommended for ages 8 and up.

* Oliver! — Nov. 8-Dec. 1: Nothing entertains on stage like a well-crafted tale, and “Oliver!” is just such a show. Based on the Charles Dickens novel, it engages the audience with its pathos and drama, while delighting the crowd with its outstanding musical numbers: “Food, Glorious Food,” “I’d Do Anything,” “Where is Love?,” “Consider Yourself,” “As Long As He Needs Me,” “Who Will Buy” and “Reviewing the Situation.” Recommended for all ages.

* Kander & Ebb’s “Cabaret” — Jan. 3-26: The authors of “Chicago” now paint a different scene in a 1920’s night club in Berlin with the rise of the Third Reich in Germany. The master of ceremonies welcomes the audience to the show and assures them that, whatever their troubles, they will forget them at the “Cabaret.” Musical numbers include, “It Couldn’t Please Me More,” “Willkommen,” “Cabaret,” “Don’t Tell Mama” and “Two Ladies.” Recommended for ages 10 and up.

* Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “South Pacific” — Feb. 28-March 23: The Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, set in an island paradise during World War II, follows parallel love stories threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. The original Broadway production enjoyed immense critical and box-office success and was the second-longest running Broadway musical to that point behind Rodgers and Hammerstein’s earlier “Oklahoma!.” Recommended for all ages.

* “A Chorus Line” — April 25-May 18: A stunning Pulitzer Prize-winning musical about a chorus audition for a Broadway musical. It tells of the achingly poignant ambitions of professional Broadway gypsies to land a job in the show, and is a powerful metaphor for all human aspiration. Memorable musical numbers include, “I Can Do That,” “At the Ballet,” “Dance: Ten; Looks: Three,” “Music and the Mirror,” “What I Did for Love,” “One (Singular Sensation)” and “I Hope I Get It.” It is a complex fusion of dance, song and compellingly authentic drama. Recommended for ages 11 and up.

* “Les Miserables” (June 20-July 13): The musical masterpiece that has swept the world for more than 25 years comes to the DMTC stage for the first time in this end-of-the-season production of “Les Miserables.” Barricades, soaring melodies and stirring scenes will have audiences humming “Do You Hear the People Sing?” for days. Recommended for ages 8 and up.

Season Tickets are $90 for general; $80 for students and seniors (55 and over). There is no facility fee with season tickets, which are available at www.dmtc.org, or by calling 530-756-3682.
