Written over the course of only 6 weeks in 1832, this romantic comedy remains one of the most-performed operas to this day, due in no small part to highly relatable characters and the ever-relevant theme of falling in love. Willing to try anything to win the affection of the self-motivated and fiercely independent Adina, Nemorino, the young admirer spends a fortune on a “love potion” sold by Dulcamara, a traveling charlatan who capitalizes on the desperate and naive. Will Adina choose Nemorino, the local villager with nothing to offer but his affections, or Belcore, the confident and cocky military sergeant who is quick to propose and leads a life of adventure? And what of Dulcamara and his potions? Sung in Italian with English supertitles, this charismatic classic will make you smile and celebrate the awkward joy of falling in love.
Summer Theater Programs
Summer Theater: Kids Company, Ages 5-7
Where the Wild Things Are
Directed by Digby Baker-Porazinski
Showcase Performance, Hubbard Hall Freight Depot Theater
Friday, July 7 at 6:00pm
In this two-week daily summer theater program, kids ages five to seven years are introduced to the skills and magic of the theater. Through theater games, music, and art we form an ensemble cast experience in which everyone has a creative voice. Every child has magical worlds within them–what will they create today? Based on beloved children’s book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, the group will work together to create a fun performance for family and friends on Friday, July 7th.
Kids ages 8-12 participate in a four-week-long summer theatre program and musical, How to Eat Like a Child – And Other Lessons in Not Being a Grown Up by Judith Kahan with music by John Forster. Over four weeks, kids will learn the basics of theatre while playing team-building, improv, and acting games to build an ensemble and confidence and work in tandem with the director and musical director to conceptualize and actualize ideas. Participants will also create their own sets, props, and even costumes. This will be a student-driven show. The program will be directed by Virginia Edinger (recent director of Alice in Wonderland and Really Rosie!) with musical direction by Richard Cherry. Ultimately the final product will be the culmination of the weeks of rehearsals, exercises, and summer fun, to create a performance to showcase all of the students’ wonderful work.
Production announcements will be coming soon. Check out our Production Archives for a glimpse of Seasons Past!
