2021
Season

At the Unadilla Theatre

HMS Pinafore

by

WS Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan

The grand masters of melody and comedy! Brilliant music and witty dialog. "Pinafore" is their masterpeice!

 

Trial By Jury

Also by Gilbert and Sullivan and their first opera. A gentle spoof of the British legal system.  It is a 25 minute curtain raiser.

 

 

At the Festival Theatre

 

The Seagull

A sublime confection of comedy and tragedy that has to be played for absolute truth if it is going to uncover and lay bare the lies that these people tell themselves and each other. This is a play about dissembling: the self-absorbed actress Arkadina turns her whole life into a performance, the acclaimed writer Trigorin is a moral coward in his private life; the young Nina -the seagull of the title - is a girl with the stars in her eyes destroyed because of her romantic illusions.

Waiting for Godot

                                    by

Samuel Beckett

 

 

Despair becomes repartee in Samuel Beckett’s great play in which the act of waiting itself is caught like a buzzing bluebottle in a glass jar and dissected: the uncertainty, the boredom, the dawdling, the attempts to fill up the time that weighs so heavily and passes so slowly and yet reduces 50 years to a blink. As Pozzo observes, we are given life “astride the grave” and then “the light gleams an instant, then it’s night once more”.
