THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER 

The Musical


The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world–so when they 

crash Sunday school and demand parts in the Christmas pageant, the whole 

town panics. There’s not supposed to be biting or cigar-smoking in Bethlehem, 

and while these kids have never even heard the Christmas story, they definitely 

have rewrites! Soon everyone is calling for reluctant director Grace Bradley to 

cancel the whole thing. It’s up to Bradley and the Reverend to help their 

community see the Christmas story and the Herdman kids through new eyes 

in this buoyant musical adaptation of the funny and touching holiday classic.

"THE STAR ON MY HEART"


The Star on My Heart is a true story about Holocaust survivor and I Am a Star author Dr. Inge Auerbacher. It follows Inge's story of her time before the war in Germany, during her time in the Terezin concentration camp in Prague, and her recovery and struggle with tuberculosis in America after the war.


The Holocaust is not just about history. Genocide and racism are alive today. Survivors of the Holocaust will soon be lost, and the time to tell their stories is disappearing. One survivor, Inge Auerbacher, worked with local director/writer Angela Miloro-Hansen, to turn her memoirs of time spent in the Terezin concentration camp into a stage play. The Star on My Heart premiered four years ago, and has since been performed in several locations in north-east Ohio, and the Midwest, including a production off-off Broadway in NYC.


DR. INGE AUERBACHER WILL BE PRESENT FOR BOTH PERFORMANCES AT THEATRE 8:15 AND WILL TALK TO THE AUDIENCE AFTER THE SHOWS.


Curtain 440 is proud to tell Inge Auerbacher’s story, and to be part of the education that accompanies the process, for cast and audience.

About 6 years ago these two women from different worlds entered a collaborative project to dramatize the true story of a young Jewish girl’s life in Nazi Germany and subsequent challenges as a teen & young adult in America.  After a couple of years of research, writing and revising THE STAR ON MY HEART had its initial performance runs in four different NE Ohio theaters followed by an amazing weekend in an NYC off-off-Broadway theater — all within one incredible year!  The show was made available for lease and fine directors like John Mangan and Talashia Keim Yoder began introducing it to the greater nation.  And now, writer/director Angela Miloro-Hansen is preparing a new cast to again present Inge Auerbacher’s amazing story of perseverance and hope to NE Ohio audiences.  Be sure to catch this Curtain 440 production from Nov 8 thru Dec 7 in four different locations!

Featuring

Ron Church & Tammy Carder

 

Two strangers, a man and a woman, board a San Francisco BART train at 4:30 a.m. They're alone in the car, each is married, both are doing the New York Times crossword. She's an organized, sensible psychologist. He's a free-spirited, unemployed ad exec. She is a crossword pro, he always quits. When he tosses his puzzle away, she snaps, "Crosswords are a metaphor for life, those who finish, succeed, those who don't, fail." Now he vows to finish. Why?  He's a competitor and she happens to be lovely. This starts an eighty-minute ride described by critics as "Hilarious," "Witty," "Romantic," "Poignant," and "Wonderfully entertaining." Two opposites in an enclosed space, attacking each other's values but also being swayed and intrigued by them. They each have serious life problems that the other helps solve. Their trip is filled with unpredictable, but believable, surprises, even a passionate kissing embrace or two. As the train ride ends, it's obvious each of them has been changed for the better.

Music by Tom Snow | Lyrics by Dean Pitchford | Stage Adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie | Based on the original screenplay by Dean Pitchford | Additional Music by Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.

Consider yourself at home with Lionel Bart's classic musical based on Charles Dickens' novel, Oliver Twist. The Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike.

The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.

LIONEL BART'S OLIVER!

is presented through special arrangements with Music Theatre International (MTI). 

All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. 

www.MTIShows.com

Directed by Ben Gavitt


 The play is set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household, the place where the family assembled daily for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special occasions. The action is comprised of a mosaic of interrelated scenes—some funny, some touching, some rueful—which, taken together, create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class WASP. The actors change roles, personalities and ages with virtuoso skill as they portray a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids. Each vignette introduces a new set of people and events; a father lectures his son on grammar and politics; a boy returns from boarding school to discover his mother's infidelity; a senile grandmother doesn't recognize her own sons at Christmas dinner; a daughter, her marriage a shambles, pleads futilely to return home, etc. Dovetailing swiftly and smoothly, the varied scenes coalesce, ultimately, into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity.

Welcome to the Annual Holiday Variety Show and Christmas Pageant at St. Everybody's Non-Denominational Universalist Church, where all faiths are welcome because we'll believe anything.

An irreverent yet heartwarming trip through the holidays, THE ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS SHOW (ABRIDGED) is festive, funny, physical, family fun as these Three Wise Guys send up and celebrate our favorite holiday traditions.
 

November 25 - December 4, 2016 

Fridays and Saturdays at 8:15 pm

Tickets: Adults $12 - Seniors/Students $10
