EVITA
[Rock Musical]

*2015 Circle Audience Musical Choice

MUSIC BY: ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER
LYRICS BY: TIM RICE


MAY 7-9, 13-16, 20-23 @ 7:30PM
MAY 17 @ 5:00pm

Argentina's controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president's mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Eva Peron "saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military" was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, Evita creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.


THE 39 STEPS

*2015 Circle Audience Play Choice

BY: PATRICK BARLOW & JOHN BUCHAN

JUNE 4-6, 10-13, 17-20 @ 7:30PM
JUNE 14 @ 5:00pm


Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This 2-time Tony(R) and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old fashioned romance!

In The 39 Steps, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she's a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called "The 39 Steps" is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale!


BECKY'S NEW CAR 
[Comedy]

BY: STEVEN DIETZ

JULY 9-11, 15-18, 22-25 @ 7:30PM
JULY 19 @ 5:00pm

Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage-with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life...and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn't dare. Becky's New Car is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.

"Perhaps the highest praise that can be given to Steven Dietz's praiseworthy new comedy is that it's funny. Not ironic. Not hysterical in a slapsticky kind of way. Just gently and consistently funny-right up to the point that it's touching, and then even a little bit after that. Becky's New Car takes the audience on a smart, comic cruise through the perils of middle-aged longing and regret." - Variety.

The teenager, Frank W. Abagnale Jr., runs away from home in search of a glamorous life.
