    CLASSIC DRAMA: CST is proud to present the drama that served as the basis for the Oscar-winning film staring Burt Lancaster and Anna Magnani. In the play an Italian-American neighborhood in Louisiana is rocked when a local truck driver is killed by police, leaving his wife devastated. Serafina’s grieving comes to an end when she learns of her husband’s infidelities and lured by the desire for a handsome drifter who has come into town.

    The Story: Serafina delle Rose is a restless widow whose intense and absorbing instinct for love drives everything before it. The figure of this extraordinary woman dominates the small town where she and her friends are living and embodies the exultation and danger of unbridled passion. Her story, and that of the lover she chooses and the daughter she denies, are forged into a play of power, humanity and soaring emotion.
    Winner of the 1951 Tony Award for Best Play. One of the author’s most beautiful and powerful plays. Set among a colony of Sicilian fisherfolk on the American Gulf Coast, it is the story of a woman for whom love was stronger than death.

    Opening Night Party: Fri, Apr 7 at Sage Restaurant

    The Bottle Rockets are an American rock band formed in 1992. Considered to be leaders in the 90’s alt-country/roots rock revival along with peers Uncle Tupelo, the Bottle Rockets are contemporary storytellers from Middle America. Their songs with strong social commentary reflects their influences of Woody Guthrie, Neil Young and The Replacements. As noted in the N.Y. Times by William Hogeland, the Bottle Rockets’ song writing has been likened to Woody Guthrie’s folk style in spirit, smarts and satire. The band’s lyrics encapsulate the common experiences of the everyman, and are set to rousing and searing rock n’ roll.

    The God Committee Presented by The Genesius Guild

    Four transplant candidates. One heart. A St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Countless Catastrophic Opportunities. “The God Committee” is a taut, realistic exploration into how physicians decide which patient will receive the new heart, and the latest production on stage at the Genesius Guild of First United Methodist Hammond.

    Time is running out as a group of people debate issues of race, gender, and of course…money. Lots of money. This medical thriller takes us into the inner workings of a Transplant Program and a decision—for both their candidates and their program—that is a matter of life and death. Science and morality clash in this riveting drama set inside a hushed boardroom filled with medical professionals who are unable to leave their own emotional baggage outside.

    Using his great talent of mixing high wire tension with fiery humor, playwright Mark St. Germain has created a charged work that keeps the audience in suspense for the entire evening. Alliances are formed, broken and reformed as the committee argues, accuses, debates and ultimately votes. And just when the matter seems to be decided, the playwright upends the proceedings with theatrical dynamite.

    “The God Committee” contains adult themes, making it comparable to a movie with a PG-13 rating, which may not be suitable for younger patrons. It takes the stage weekends April 28 through May 7. Performances are in the Fellowship Hall at First United Methodist Church of Hammond, 6635 Hohman Ave. in Hammond, Indiana, at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. A 3 p.m. matinee will be performed Sunday afternoons. Tickets are available at the door or by calling toll-free 877-724-7715. A group discount is available for groups of 15 or more; contact the box office for details and reservations.

    This delightful show within a show is sure to have you tapping your toe along to all the snazzy jazz numbers and classic 1920’s musical type songs we all know and love. The Drowsy Chaperone is a musical that revolves around a lonely, melancholy man in his apartment as he tries to cheer himself up by listening to a recording of his favorite 20’s musical. Watch as his apartment magically transforms into the set of this vivacious musical and the characters come to life. Lying, scandal and deception ensue as the plot of the show within our show thickens. This five time Tony award winner is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat!

    The God Committee Presented by The Genesius Guild

    Four transplant candidates. One heart. A St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Countless Catastrophic Opportunities. “The God Committee” is a taut, realistic exploration into how physicians decide which patient will receive the new heart, and the latest production on stage at the Genesius Guild of First United Methodist Hammond.

    Time is running out as a group of people debate issues of race, gender, and of course…money. Lots of money. This medical thriller takes us into the inner workings of a Transplant Program and a decision—for both their candidates and their program—that is a matter of life and death. Science and morality clash in this riveting drama set inside a hushed boardroom filled with medical professionals who are unable to leave their own emotional baggage outside.

    Using his great talent of mixing high wire tension with fiery humor, playwright Mark St. Germain has created a charged work that keeps the audience in suspense for the entire evening. Alliances are formed, broken and reformed as the committee argues, accuses, debates and ultimately votes. And just when the matter seems to be decided, the playwright upends the proceedings with theatrical dynamite.

    “The God Committee” contains adult themes, making it comparable to a movie with a PG-13 rating, which may not be suitable for younger patrons. It takes the stage weekends April 28 through May 7. Performances are in the Fellowship Hall at First United Methodist Church of Hammond, 6635 Hohman Ave. in Hammond, Indiana, at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. A 3 p.m. matinee will be performed Sunday afternoons. Tickets are available at the door or by calling toll-free 877-724-7715. A group discount is available for groups of 15 or more; contact the box office for details and reservations.
