Weathervane Theatre Presents: Monty Python’s Spamalot

OPENING NIGHT! Monty Python’s SPAMALOT

Book and Lyrics: Eric Idle
Music: John Du Prez

Monty Python’s Spamalot is the 2005 Tony® Award winner for Best Musical, lovingly ripped off from the classic 1975 British film comedy, Monty Python and The Holy Grail!  In this retelling of the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, we learn how killer rabbits, a bevy of beautiful showgirls, the French and flying cows figure in their quest for the Holy Grail. Gleefully silly and wickedly smart, Monty Python’s Spamalot captures the distinct spirit of Python humor that appeals to audiences of all ages. Forget Harry Potter.  All hail a can of Spam!

Weathervane Theatre Presents: Our Town

OPENING NIGHT! OUR TOWN

By Thornton Wilder

Winner of the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Our Town is a life-affirming and timeless classic American play.  Simple and profound, Our Town opens with the Stage Manager’s introduction to Grover’s Corners, a fictional town based on Peterborough, New Hampshire.  Take a walk through time and life in a small town, circa 1901.  You’ll meet familiar locals such as Doc Gibbs, Howie Newsome and George and Emily in their day-to day activities, all sharing their lives, loves and losses. Wilder’s beautifully written play is a touching reminder of the short journey we’re all on, and a welcome lesson in having gratitude for the time we have together.

OPENING NIGHT! CHICAGO, The Musical

Book by Fred Ebb & Bob Fosse
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb

This sinister and sexy musical is a must-see for any Fosse fan or fan of celebrity crime. Set in Jazz Age Chicago, the story follows the trial and deeds of two murderesses — Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly — who are locked in the Cook County Jail. Based on the true crime coverage of Chicago’s surge of female killers, Chicago takes on the system and wins. Laced with great numbers such as “All That Jazz,” “Cell Block Tango,” and “Razzle Dazzle,” and iconic choreography, Chicago is a fast-paced, fun and raunchy ride in the theater. Don’t miss it!

“Chicago still glitters hypnotically!  It remains the best adult entertainment in town and still bubbles with the joy of performing!”
– Ben Brantley, the New York Times (2007)

Weathervane Theatre Presents: The Foreigner

THE FOREIGNER

By Larry Shue

Winner of two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best New American Play and Best Off-Broadway Production, The Foreigner promises a hilarious evening of mistaken identity.  Set in a rural fishing lodge in Georgia, a pathologically shy man finds himself beset by strangers and sinister characters that all think he’s an exotic foreigner who doesn’t speak English. Our phobic hero endures a wild ride when he overhears things he shouldn’t. Join us for this comic romp that the New York Post called a “devilishly clever idea!”

I laughed start to finish at one comic surprise after another.”
—The New Yorker

Catch The Foreigner on stage at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 17; Friday, July 20; Wednesday, July 25; and Monday, July 30

Weathervane Theatre Presents: Always Patsy Cline

OPENING NIGHT! ALWAYS… PATSY CLINE

By Ted Swindley

In 1961, an unusual conversation began between the famed country singer Patsy Cline and one of her biggest fans, Louise Seger, a Houston housewife.  Finding herself early at Cline’s concert, Seger surprisingly meets Cline and they strike up a coffee chat that lasts until Cline’s death in 1963. Always…Patsy Cline takes us on a musical journey of their serendipitous meeting, their genuine connection and their evolving relationship from fan worship to mutual friendship. The show provides a touching glimpse into the star’s life from the perspective of a true friend. Seger provides the narrative and Cline reappears to sing the tunes that made her famous – “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “Sweet Dreams,” “I Fall To Pieces,” “Crazy” – and more!

Catch Always…Patsy Cline onstage at 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 14; Monday, July 16; Thursday, July 19; Friday, July 27; and Wednesday, August 15.
