Once On This Island

Presented by Propel Braddock Hills High School

Fri-Sat, February 1-2Doors Open 6PM / Show Starts 7PM

Tickets sold at door only: $10/adult – $8/student (with valid ID)

Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the pompous gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune’s life. When she pursues Daniel, who has returned to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not enough to win Daniel’s heart, and Ti Moune pays the ultimate price; but the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall, it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately unites them.

An Octoroon

Presented by Kinetic Theatre

Fri-Sun, February 15-247:30 PM Evenings; 2 PM Matinees

Judge Peyton is dead, and his plantation Terrebone is in financial ruins. Peyton’s handsome nephew George arrives as heir apparent, and quickly falls in love with Zoe, a beautiful ‘octoroon’. But the dastardly M’Closky has other plans – for both Terrebone and Zoe.

This wildly imaginative work, Winner of the 2014 OBIE Award for Best New American Play, simultaneously gives us Dion Boucicault’s great 19th Century melodrama and its contemporary reverberations. An Octoroon invites us to laugh loudly at how naïve the old stereotypes now seem until nothing seems funny at all. It may be this decade’s most eloquent theatrical statement on race in America today.

*An Octoroon is recommended for mature audiences only.

For performance questions please contact Kinetic Theatre at kinetictheatreinfo@gmail.com. For ticket purchases by phone contact Showclix at 1.888.718.4253.

Inspired by a real event and featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steven Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s 2016 hit BRIGHT STAR tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier and author just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost.

Fun Home

Presented by Front Porch Theatricals

Fri-Sat, August 16-24

When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison Bechdel dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her college years and growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. FUN HOME is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes. An unforgettable and groundbreaking musical, FUN HOME explores the haunting pull of memory and the power it has to alternately destroy or shape, our identity. By Lisa Kron, Jeanine Tesori (Violet) and Alison Bechdel, this 2015 hit Broadway musical was nominated for 12 Tony Awards, winning 5, including Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Book of a Musical.
