Clifford the Big Red Dog, Live!
Tuesday [Feb. 12], 7 p.m.
The whole family can sing along as Emily Elizabeth and her friends from Birdwell Island tell the story of how a little puppy became Clifford the Big Red Dog. The beloved character first came to life almost 50 years ago in Norman Bridwell’s book series. Scholastic and PBS have since created the animated television show based on the books. This clever production lets Clifford’s littlest fans experience his very big adventures.
Sunday [Feb. 17], 6 p.m.
One of literature's best known romantic plays, Cyrano de Bergerac tells of long-nosed Cyrano's love for the lovely Roxanne. Aquila Theatre’s rendition of Cyrano's adventure carries the audience through the streets of Paris, into dramatic battlefield scenes, and finally, to a convent’s peaceful cloisters. It is there that this amusing yet emotional tale of unrequited love comes to its heart-wrenching end.
Saturday [Feb. 23], 7:30 p.m.
Based on the 2002 movie Drumline, this show is in its fourth tour, bringing an explosive and energetic halftime experience to the stage. Musicians and dancers from all over the country come together to create showstopping marching band interpretations of hip hop, R&B, and classic Motown tunes, accompanied by electrifying footwork and a powerful sound.
Thursday [March 7], 7:30 p.m.
New Yorker Eugene Morris Jerome is in foreign territory during his training as a World War II Army recruit. He’s been shipped to Biloxi, Mississippi, for his basic training. Neil Simon’s hit play follows the Brooklyn Jew’s impressions—always funny, often obscene, and sometimes heart wrenching—of his wartime experience. With its mature content and language, this play is best enjoyed by older theater-goers.
