Piedmont Players Theatre fund drive in full swing
It’s time to get your Piedmont Players membership! Piedmont Players Theatre has 5 great new shows and 2 youth productions planned for this year.
“Barnum A Musical,” opening Nov. 13., tells the story of P. T. Barnum, one of America’s greatest showmen.
“A Flea In Her Ear” by Georges Feydeaum, opening Jan. 22, is a classic comic farce with non-stop amorous entanglements, mistaken identities and breathless chases through the rooms of a 1900’s Paris hotel.
“Smokey Joe’s Café ó The Songs of Leiber and Stoller,” opening March 26, showcases the greatest hits of the ’50s and ’60s, including Hound Dog, Jailhouse Rock, Yakety Yak, Charlie Brown and many more.
“Crowns” by Regina Taylor, adapted from the book by Michael Cunningham & Craig Marberry, opens May 14. “Crowns” is a tribute to the fabulous church hats and the African-American women who wear them.
“Play It Again, Sam” by Woody Allen, opening July 16 , is about a mild-mannered film critic who conjures up Humphrey Bogart for romantic advice after one date after another ends in disaster.
Playing currently is the youth production, “Disney’s Aladdin, Jr.” In February, the second youth production opens: Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” Buying a membership saves money over buying individual tickets.
