    directed by Dona Henry
    March 3-18, 2017

    FAMILY MUSICAL FUN: This family musical follows the woodland adventures of two friends: a worry-wart toad and his perky frog friend. Based on the storybook favorite, A Year with Frog and Toad broke new ground in bringing professional children’s theatre to acclaim on Broadway. Children of all ages will be delighted with the play’s whimsical score and colorful cast of characters.

    The Story: Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in their differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe, all charm, A Year With Frog And Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.

    The jazzy, upbeat score of A Year With Frog And Toad bubbles with melody and wit, making it an inventive, exuberant, and enchanting musical for the whole family. It is a perfect show to be performed by an ensemble group of actors and can be produced with either simple or extravagant staging and sets.

    Memorial Opera House is thrilled to open the 2017 season with a show filled with humor, ridiculous accents, and a winner of 12 Tony awards! The Producers is a fun and exciting musical adapted from the 1968 film by Mel Brooks. It takes the journey with two producers who set out a plan to get rich quick by producing a musical they describe as “a love letter to Hitler” that will FAIL just after opening. When their plan backfires and it’s a huge success, they have to figure out what they are going to do with all of the complications that have come about. Take the journey with them and enjoy the twists and turns as they arise!

    The Genesius Guild is proud to present the classic musical comedy – “Guys And Dolls”!

    Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950. It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards, including Tony Awards, Drama Desks and Oliviers. Frequently revived, the show has been done with numerous all-star casts, including productions/concerts featuring Ewan McGregor, Jane Krakowski, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Jessica Biel.

    Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.

    This is a wild, free-flowing comedy that’s easy to stage. M*A*S*H stands for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, and joining it are two unpredictable madcaps, Hawkeye and Duke. They can’t be dealt with casually, however, because they are also two of the best chest surgeons in South Korea. They decide to wage a campaign to get a young Korean to the United States and entered in a good school. The thread of this effort helps tie together the pileup of comic adventures that pyramid right before the eyes of your astonished and hysterical audience! Hawkeye has a scene with a woman psychiatrist who believes he’s been trying to lobster-trap mermaids in a rice paddy! There’s a jolly encounter with the baby-talking Bonwit sisters, the worst tap-dancing act the U.S.O. ever sent overseas. A sergeant is selling dumb GIs fishing rights in the Bay of Phum. Radar O’Reilly, a soldier with incredible hearing, anticipates things before they happen. The proprietor of a painless dental clinic is cured of dark moods by the recreation of an old monster movie—and a monster! It’s all here, including a little romance mixed in with dramatic moments and a genuine love of life. Oh, yes—the Korean boy does get his education in the United States!

    Performance Dates – March 10, 11, 17, 18, 19, & 24, 25, & 26 , 2017
    All performances are at 8 pm except Sundays, which begin at 3 pm.

    From 1942 to 1945, during WWII, over 15,000 Jewish children passed through Terezin, a former military garrison set up as a ghetto in Czechoslovakia. It soon became a station, a stopping-off place, for hundreds of thousands of Jews on their way to the gas chambers of Auschwitz. When Terezin was liberated in 1945, only about a hundred were still alive. The story of those years at Terezin remains in drawings and poems collected and published in the book, I Never Saw Another Butterfly .

    One of the survivors, Raja, having lived through it all, teaching the children when there was nothing to teach with, helping to give them hope when there was little enough reason for hope, creating a little world of laughter, of flowers and butterflies behind the barbed wire, tells the true story of the children. It is her play and it is theirs. This play is an imaginative creation of her story from documentary materials: poems, diaries, letters, journals, drawings and pictures.

    There were no butterflies at Terezin, of course, but for the children, butterflies became a symbol of defiance, making it possible for them to tolerate and endure the hardships of their lives.

    Performance Dates – March 10, 11, 17, 18, 19, & 24, 25, & 26 , 2017
    All performances are at 8 pm except Sundays, which begin at 3 pm.

    From 1942 to 1945, during WWII, over 15,000 Jewish children passed through Terezin, a former military garrison set up as a ghetto in Czechoslovakia. It soon became a station, a stopping-off place, for hundreds of thousands of Jews on their way to the gas chambers of Auschwitz. When Terezin was liberated in 1945, only about a hundred were still alive. The story of those years at Terezin remains in drawings and poems collected and published in the book, I Never Saw Another Butterfly .

    One of the survivors, Raja, having lived through it all, teaching the children when there was nothing to teach with, helping to give them hope when there was little enough reason for hope, creating a little world of laughter, of flowers and butterflies behind the barbed wire, tells the true story of the children. It is her play and it is theirs. This play is an imaginative creation of her story from documentary materials: poems, diaries, letters, journals, drawings and pictures.

    There were no butterflies at Terezin, of course, but for the children, butterflies became a symbol of defiance, making it possible for them to tolerate and endure the hardships of their lives.

    The Genesius Guild is proud to present the classic musical comedy – “Guys And Dolls”!

    Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950. It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards, including Tony Awards, Drama Desks and Oliviers. Frequently revived, the show has been done with numerous all-star casts, including productions/concerts featuring Ewan McGregor, Jane Krakowski, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Jessica Biel.

    Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.

      March 3-18, 2017

      FAMILY MUSICAL FUN: This family musical follows the woodland adventures of two friends: a worry-wart toad and his perky frog friend. Based on the storybook favorite, A Year with Frog and Toad broke new ground in bringing professional children’s theatre to acclaim on Broadway. Children of all ages will be delighted with the play’s whimsical score and colorful cast of characters.

      The Story: Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in their differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe, all charm, A Year With Frog And Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.

      The jazzy, upbeat score of A Year With Frog And Toad bubbles with melody and wit, making it an inventive, exuberant, and enchanting musical for the whole family. It is a perfect show to be performed by an ensemble group of actors and can be produced with either simple or extravagant staging and sets.

      This is a wild, free-flowing comedy that’s easy to stage. M*A*S*H stands for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, and joining it are two unpredictable madcaps, Hawkeye and Duke. They can’t be dealt with casually, however, because they are also two of the best chest surgeons in South Korea. They decide to wage a campaign to get a young Korean to the United States and entered in a good school. The thread of this effort helps tie together the pileup of comic adventures that pyramid right before the eyes of your astonished and hysterical audience! Hawkeye has a scene with a woman psychiatrist who believes he’s been trying to lobster-trap mermaids in a rice paddy! There’s a jolly encounter with the baby-talking Bonwit sisters, the worst tap-dancing act the U.S.O. ever sent overseas. A sergeant is selling dumb GIs fishing rights in the Bay of Phum. Radar O’Reilly, a soldier with incredible hearing, anticipates things before they happen. The proprietor of a painless dental clinic is cured of dark moods by the recreation of an old monster movie—and a monster! It’s all here, including a little romance mixed in with dramatic moments and a genuine love of life. Oh, yes—the Korean boy does get his education in the United States!

The story of those years at Terezin remains in drawings and poems collected and published in the book, I Never Saw Another Butterfly .

    One of the survivors, Raja, having lived through it all, teaching the children when there was nothing to teach with, helping to give them hope when there was little enough reason for hope, creating a little world of laughter, of flowers and butterflies behind the barbed wire, tells the true story of the children. It is her play and it is theirs. This play is an imaginative creation of her story from documentary materials: poems, diaries, letters, journals, drawings and pictures.

    There were no butterflies at Terezin, of course, but for the children, butterflies became a symbol of defiance, making it possible for them to tolerate and endure the hardships of their lives.

    A Year with Frog and Toad
    by Willie and Robert Reale | Based on the books by Arnold Loebel
    directed by Dona Henry
    March 3-18, 2017

    FAMILY MUSICAL FUN: This family musical follows the woodland adventures of two friends: a worry-wart toad and his perky frog friend. Based on the storybook favorite, A Year with Frog and Toad broke new ground in bringing professional children’s theatre to acclaim on Broadway. Children of all ages will be delighted with the play’s whimsical score and colorful cast of characters.

    The Story: Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in their differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe, all charm, A Year With Frog And Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.

    The jazzy, upbeat score of A Year With Frog And Toad bubbles with melody and wit, making it an inventive, exuberant, and enchanting musical for the whole family. It is a perfect show to be performed by an ensemble group of actors and can be produced with either simple or extravagant staging and sets.

    This is a wild, free-flowing comedy that’s easy to stage. M*A*S*H stands for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, and joining it are two unpredictable madcaps, Hawkeye and Duke. They can’t be dealt with casually, however, because they are also two of the best chest surgeons in South Korea. They decide to wage a campaign to get a young Korean to the United States and entered in a good school. The thread of this effort helps tie together the pileup of comic adventures that pyramid right before the eyes of your astonished and hysterical audience! Hawkeye has a scene with a woman psychiatrist who believes he’s been trying to lobster-trap mermaids in a rice paddy! There’s a jolly encounter with the baby-talking Bonwit sisters, the worst tap-dancing act the U.S.O. ever sent overseas. A sergeant is selling dumb GIs fishing rights in the Bay of Phum. Radar O’Reilly, a soldier with incredible hearing, anticipates things before they happen. The proprietor of a painless dental clinic is cured of dark moods by the recreation of an old monster movie—and a monster! It’s all here, including a little romance mixed in with dramatic moments and a genuine love of life. Oh, yes—the Korean boy does get his education in the United States!
