About the Show:
A brood of famous and longing-to-be-famous creative artists have gathered at their summer home during the Williamstown Theatre Festival. A quiet reprieve from the noise of the city. But in this homage to Chekhov, the weekend takes an unexpected turn and incites a series of improvisations, simmering jealousies, romantic outbursts, and passionate soul-searching. Both witty and compelling, is comedy provides a piercing look at a family of performers coming to terms with the roles they play in each other’s lives. Continue reading

It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. In the Heights is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.

July 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29, August 4 and 5 at 7:00 pm

In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations… and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt! She finds a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks (played by the incredible Sam Nesbitt), his personal secretary, Grace Farrell (Wonderful Gabrielle Green), and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

Enter Fonsia Dorsey, a prim, self-righteous lady. They discover they both dislike the home and enjoy gin rummy, so they begin to play and to reveal intimate details of their lives. Fonsia wins every time and their secrets become weapons used against one another. Weller longs for a victory to counter a lifetime of defeats but it doesn’t happen. He leaves the stage a broken man and Fonsia realizes her self-righteous rigidity has led to an embittered, lonely old age.

The Rialto Community Players brings you their first show of their 36th season, GREASE!!! Directed by Cameron Harris, Music Direction by Roxanne Cordona and Choreographed by Mia Mercado!

It’s 1958, and Rydell High School’s senior class is in rare form. The too-cool-for-school “Burger Palace Boys” are stealing hub-caps and acting tough and their gum-snapping, chain-smoking “Pink Ladies” are looking hot in bobby sox and pedal pushers. The 1950s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be rebellious, provocative and rebellious. At the heart of the story is the romance between hot-rodding gangster Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. They had a secret romance in summer, but now back in the context of school, peer-pressure and cliques make their love a bit more complicated. Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and still get make demure Sandy his girl? The whole gang sings and dances around Danny and Sandy’s romance, through such hit songs as “Greased Lightnin'”, “We Go Together”, and “Mooning”, recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. Starting off with an eight-year Broadway run, Grease is among the world’s most popular musicals and has a cult-like following, especially among teens!
