    Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown ~~ Book by Marsha Norman ~~ Based on the novel by Robert James Waller ~~ Based on the best-selling novel, a forbidden love affair between a photographer and a housewife changes them forever. This sweeping romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross will leave you breathless. With a soaring score, this powerful musical captures the lyrical expanse of America’s heartland along with the yearning entangled in the eternal question “What if...?”~~ Director's Notes THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY~~ “There are songs that come free from the blue-eyed grass, from the dust of a thousand country roads. This is one of them.” So begins the book The Bridges of Madison County written by Robert James Waller in 1992. Appropriate, then, that this incredible book, and popular movie, would become a 2014 Tony award winning musical. The lush romantic score written by Jason Robert Brown ( The Last Five Years , Parade , Songs for a New World ) and beautiful script by playwright Marsha Norman (‘ night, Mother, The Secret Garden, The Color Purple ) take us into the lives of Francesca Johnson and Robert Kincaid and their beautiful love story.~~ There have been several times in my life when a play comes along that I “need”. A story that strikes chords and pushes buttons in me that I need to listen to, I need to hear its message. The Bridges of Madison County is one such story. This music, these words, these people touch places in my heart and soul and shake me to my very core. I have been moved by the truth of this tale, and it has made my heart open up to the possibilities of true love and romance, of destiny and forever.~~ At the end of chapter one, Robert James Waller writes: “In an increasingly callous world, we all exist with our own carapace of scabbed-over sensibilities. Where great passion leaves off and mawkishness begins, I’m not sure. But our tendency to scoff at the possibility of the former and to label genuine and profound feelings as maudlin makes it difficult to enter the realm of gentleness required to understand the story of Francesca Johnson and Robert Kincaid. If, however, you approach what follows with a willing suspension of disbelief, as Coleridge put it, I am confident you will experience what I have experienced. In the indifferent spaces of your heart, you may even find, as Francesca Johnson did, room to dance again.”~~ Tricia Matthews~~ Director, The Bridges of Madison County ~~ Cast & Credits Cast: Francesca Johnson: Hannah Ingram ~~ Robert Kincaid: Sean Maximo Campos ~~ Carolyn: Hope Quinn ~~ Richard “Bud” Johnson: Nick Koesters ~~ Michael: Zacchaeus Kimbrell ~~ Marge: Paris Bradstreet ~~ Charlie: Rick McVey ~~ Marian: Kim Morgan Dean ~~ Chiara: Sarah Laughland ~~ Collaborators: Director: Tricia Matthews ~~ Musical Director: Dishon Smith ~~ Set Designer: Derek Smith ~~ Lighting Designer: Camille Davis ~~ Costume Designer: Jane Alois Stein ~~ Sound Designer: Tony Angelini ~~ Stage Manager: Cindi A.

  5. Singin' in the Rain (Sep 27) 33 days. Sep-27th to Nov-10th

     Thu, Sep 27th - Barter Theatre   0
    “The Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” ~~ Book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green ~~ Songs by Arthur Freed and Nacio Herb Brown ~~ Based on the classic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film by special arrangement with Warner Bros Theatre Ventures ~~ “Make ‘Em Laugh,” “You Are My Lucky Star,” “You Were Meant for Me,” “All I do is Dream of You,” and, of course the title song, “Singin’ in the Rain,” are but a few of the wonderful songs from one of the most celebrated and beloved musical films ever made. Live and onstage, these unforgettable scenes, songs and dances will make you laugh, make you sing, wow you with the spectacle of it all, and leave you with a night to remember for the rest of your life.~~ Director's Notes RAIN BRINGS LIFE~~ Rain is refreshing. Rain is life giving. Rain cleanses. And in the case of Singin’ in the Rain , it is also wildly entertaining.~~ Whenever it rains, everyone complains. Yet rain is necessary to our sustenance. Rain makes everything around us alive.~~ The fact that rain brings life was not lost on Betty Comden and Adolph Green when they wrote Singin’ in the Rain . We take great joy in watching a young child play in a mud puddle or splash around in a sprinkler because we see the renewal, joy and refreshing image of being clean again. We experience immense pleasure in watching birds splash in a fountain. So what better image could there possible be for a man falling in love than singing and dancing in the rain? It’s the perfect image of freedom; there’s not a care in the world, even a downpour couldn’t dampen happiness.~~ Don Lockwood singing and dancing in the rain reminds us of our childhood. He is free from the restraint of fame and publicity. But more than that, the rain, and his love of Kathy Seldon, cleanses him. And in the process, he helps to cleanse the world around him by doing what is right and fair.~~ In the meantime, we get to be highly entertained by a boy and his friends splashing, playing, dancing and singing in the rain. If we could only experience that joy every day of our lives!~~ Richard Rose~~ Director, Singin’ in the Rain ~~ Cast & Credits Cast: (In Order of Appearance)~~ Zelda Zanders. famous zip girl: Hope Quinn ~~ J.

With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help remember the true meaning of Christmas.
