Game of Thrones the Musical

Thurs May 11 7:45pm, Fri May 12 6:30pm, Sat May 13 1:30pm

[cats]


A massively inappropriate childrens show featuring vocabulary lessons, spoilers, incest, moral lessons, betrayal, and truly terrible puppet-on-puppet violence. All is not well in Westeros, where a simple visit sets in motion the War of Five Kings, dragon attacks, and worse. This skewering parody of the hit HBO show Game of Thrones and the bestselling novels by George R. R. Martin highlights the women of Westeros, adventures beyond the Wall, and the escapades of the Stark family. If you like Sesame Street and/or adore Avenue Q, this is the show for you!

There Ain’t No More: Death of a Folksinger

There Ain’t No More: Death of a Folksinger

Thurs May 11 9:10pm, Fri May 12 10:55pm, Sat May 13 12pm

In a raucous one-man operetta based on legends of American folk music and the early vaudeville stage, a bawdy old folksinger tries to burn the barn down one final time
before his last waltz is called.

The play takes place during the folksingers last performance. Facing the life he has led and the legacy he will leave behind, the medication-addled musician uses every trick he knows to confront his lost love, his experience of war, years of political activism, adventures into the American wilderness, and gig after gig spent in folk-music obscurity.
