The (Somewhat) True Tale of Robin Hood
October 17 at 7pm & 18 at 2pm
Directed by Karen Braz
It’s hard to be humble when you’re a swashbuckling, egocentric superhero. But as the Children’s Theatre Project, directed by Karen Braz, celebrates its 19th season with this Monty Python-esque retelling of the classic Robin Hood tale, our gallant guy in green tries his best. This time around, the legendary legend ecounters a lovely damsel-in-distress obsessed with skin conditions, the ever-scheming, ever-bowling Sheriff of Nottingham, the bad-guy wannabe Prince John, and a good-natured “Town’s Gal” who manages to maker her way into every scene, whether she belongs there or not. This, plus a band of spoon-wielding merry men who’s collective I.Q. equals six, makes for an irreverent jaunt through Sherwood Forrest that you won’t soon forget!

Spamalot is the madcap medieval musical “lovingly ripped off” from the cult movie classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The original 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards including Best Musical. Join King Arthur, the “homicidally brave” Sir Lancelot, Sir Robin (the not-quite-so-brave as Sir Lancelot), and the knights of the Very-Very-Very Round Table as they seek the length and breadth of the kingdom — with its odd assortment of nobles, peasants, guards, clergyfolk, minstrels, wizards, French people and Killer Rabbits — in search of the Holy Grail. And whatever happens … Always Look on the Bright Side of Life! =>View Cast List (PDF)
Spamalot is presented through special arrangement with and all authorized performance materials are supplied by Theatrical Rights Worldwide (TRW), 570 Seventh Avenue, Suite 2100, New York, NY 10018. (866) 378-9758.
Kong’s Night Out
February 14, 15 at 7:30pm & 16 at 2pm
Directed by Michael Coppola Produced by Allwynne Fine and Barbara Woodman
Myron Siegel is looking forward to the opening night of his new Broadway show, “Foxy Felicia”. When he finds out that most of his audience has left to buy tickets to the new production across the street, he discovers that his longtime nemesis, Carl Denham has set out to ruin him. This comedic farce turns “show business” into “monkey business” as we find out what was really happening in the hotel suite next door, the night Ann Darrow was taken by King Kong! “Kong” is loaded with 1930′s silliness and slapstick and art deco fashion and glamour. This screwball comedy will keep you laughing from start to finish with its snappy banter, borderline corny jokes, slamming doors, and oh, did I mention – pie in the face …..
The talented cast includes Kevin Guimond as Myron Seigel, Barbara Webb as Sally Charmine, Caity Glover as Daisy, Deirdre Hickok Bridge as Betrille Siegel, Mario Arruda as Little Willie, Steven Koch as Sig Higginbottom, Chris Demers as Jack Driscoll, James Baker as Carl Denham and Chelsea Pettibone as Ann Darrow.

Listen to the Concord News Radio interview!
The eccentric La Putts family (Buddy, Yvette, Grandpa & Grandma and two somewhat average children) is desperately scrambling to keep their family business from foreclosure…an old fashion/out-of-date and out-of-the-way hotel offering peace, tranquility and seclusion from what is known as “The American Rat Race”. A second mortgage is definitely out of the question since they are unable to pay off the first. Then one fine day a charming “pharmaceutical salesman” (Harry Warner) stumbles upon the secluded hide-away. Enamored with its sequestered location, Harry recognizes its potential promising monthly sales meetings, lots of guests and lots of dollars. Buddy believes his prayers have been answered. Now who doesn’t believe in miracles? Throw in a few of “Harry’s friends”, his simple-minded/ditsy fiancé (Mara Dingle), a private detective with delusions of grandeur (Adrian Snoops), a pair of 80-year-old newly weds, the Feds, and the family parrot (Jose) that may be too smart for its own feathers, and you are in for a wild ride as the La Putts family ultimately discover they have been duped and are now personally involved with a notorious drug cartel. They soon learn what it means to stick together and fight for their lives.
