Come follow the adventures of Dorothy Gale and her dog Toto as their Kansas home is swept away by a cyclone and they find themselves in a strange and wonderful land called Oz. Featuring all the music from the classic MGM film. This Theatre IV favorite is guaranteed to transport children of all ages over the rainbow. Barksdale Theatre at Willow Lawn Intimate Apparel April 13- May 20, 2007 Esther, a 35-year old single black seamstress in ragtime era New York, stitches together a life making exquisite lingerie for wealthy socialites uptown and women of ill-repute downtown. Though independent, Esther still struggles with loneliness and wishes for the kind of fulfillment she cannot find behind a sewing machine. When correspondence begins with a man from across the world, her hopes for finding companionship and love take an unexpected turn. Her talent weaves a collection of close relationships bound by romance and disappointment as Esther learns that a woman’s happiness depends on her own emotional strength and self-confidence. Into the Woods June 15- August 19, 2007 Are you certain what you wish is what you want? Sondheim’s brilliant music—together with bakers, witches, and vain handsome princes straight out of the Brothers Grimm— vividly illustrates the potential for treachery in our innermost wishes. An ambivalent Cinderella? A bloodthirsty Little Red Riding Hood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A Witch...who raps? They're all there. When a Baker and his Wife learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell, swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel and Jack. Everyone's wish is granted at the end of Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them. Barksdale Theatre at Hanover Tavern Smoke on the Mountain February 23- April 15, 2007 Set in the 1930s, this good time bluegrass gospel musical introduces the singing Sanders family, who perform their traditional and original gospel songs for the members of the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Mount Pleasant, NC. Pastor Oglethorpe welcomes the family to the church, where their individual stories and beliefs are shared during the concert. With the audience serving as the "congregation," Smoke on the Mountain lovingly recreates a delightful and musically unforgettable slice of Americana. The Odd Couple June 29- August 12, 2007 The most hilariously mismatched roommates in the history of Broadway comedy are back at Hanover Tavern in this brand new production of one of America's favorite comedies. Last produced by Barksdale in 1973, Neil Simon's irresistibly funny play tells the story of two friends (one divorced, the other recently separated) who decide to share an apartment … with sidesplitting results. Don't miss the sheer pleasure of rediscovering all over again the reasons we all first fell in love with The Odd Couple. Deathtrap September 14- October 21, 2007 Sidney Bruhl is a middle-aged playwright famous for his oh-so-clever whodunits, but he hasn't had a hit in twenty years. When one of his former students sends him the only draft of a new murder mystery, Sidney devises a plan to ensure his own fortune. Will Sidney's scheme lead him back to Broadway? Will the student be the victim of malicious jealousy? Will Sidney's wife be able to withstand the horror in her household? Will the eccentric psychic who is visiting Sidney's neighbors unearth the nastiness next door? Only one answer is certain: missing this classic Broadway thriller would be a deadly mistake. Swingtime Canteen November 16- January 6, 2008 The '40s burst onto the scene in this sentimental journey with a sassy attitude. This eagerly awaited Off-Broadway hit, featuring over 30 hits from the big band era, is not only nostalgic to those who lived through them but will resonate through any Baby Boomer or Generation X-er who hungers for a taste of our nation's last age of innocence. Barksdale Theatre and The Steward School at the Paul R. Cramer Center for the Performing Arts High School Musical July 20- August 5, 2007 Gabriella Montez is a shy, studious new student at East High School; but that all changes when she is forced to sing at a karaoke contest with Troy Bolton, the captain of the school's basketball team. After spending time with each other, both realize they share a passionate love for music and singing. But will they retain this love when their school is telling them they cannot be together?
