Wacky, irreverent and as entertaining today as it was when it first opened in 1879, THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE spins a hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, dewy-eyed daughters and an eccentric Major-General, all morally bound to the often-ridiculous dictates of honor and duty.

“Let’s do the Time Warp AGAIN!” A musical sensation that has played London and Broadway, THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW has endured constant production since its inception in 1973 and is the basis for the 1975 late night cult film classic. When Brad and Janet take a wrong turn on their honeymoon, they end up at Dr. Frank N. Furter’s castle where a war of cultures ensues. A wild and hilarious science-fiction journey that includes the creation of a man, ray-guns, high heels and lots of song!

One of Neil Simon’s earliest hits, this classic romantic comedy is about a conservative young lawyer and his free-spirited newlywed bride. The play follows the young couple as they move from the giddy joy of a honeymoon at The Plaza into the crazy reality of starting married life in a fifth-floor walkup in New York City. First premiered on Broadway in 1963, the play ran for four years and was nominated for four Tony Awards including Best Play. Join us for this hilarious, American theater classic.
 
 

The Shakespeare Initiative at Brundage Park Playhouse Presents for 2010

 

THE TRAGEDY OF KING LEAR

June 4, 5, 11 and 12 at 8:00 PM
June 6 and 13 at 2:00 PM
“Nothing will come of nothing.”
Shakespeare’s most elemental tragedy, KING LEAR features certifiable insanity, internal family intrigue, class struggles and a dramatic coup d’etat. A daughter’s love is put to the test and two families tear themselves apart, as a community teeters on the verge of disintegration. Can change ever come without loss? Join us for a thought-provoking classic that is often considered the greatest masterpiece by William Shakespeare.

THE TEMPEST

December 3, 4, 10 and 11 at 8:00 PM
December 5 and 12 at 2:00 PM
“We are such stuff as dreams are made on.”
Exiled to an island somewhere in the New World, Prospero lives with his daughter, Miranda, attended by spirits and the monster Caliban. After twelve years, he prepares to take revenge on his enemies only to decide that the ‘rarer action is in virtue than in vengeance’. Shakespeare’s final play is a wonder of invention: a tempest, a shipwreck, castaways, lost children, music, first love, revenge, drunken clowns, murder plots, magic, monsters and spirits. The Bard’s farewell to the stage continues to raise the provocative question: can a bitter world be re-imagined? As timely now as it was 400 years ago!
