This season there will be four 15-minute musicals, featuring the same cast of five actors. The writers have been given a theme of “For Richer, For Poorer”, and have cooked up four wildly different approaches to this theme: an outrageous family squabble over a cookie dough recipe; a porn movie with a G-rated director at the helm; Hansel and Gretel all grown up but delusional that the Witch is still out to eat 'em; and three exotic plants singing for their lives.
The four shows presented each evening (June 28 and 29) are:
- “Dough!”, with book by Sarah Hernandez, music by Clifford J. Tasner, and lyrics by Ron Ovadia.
- “Shoot Ma!”, with book by Joe Moe, music by Ryan Luevano, and lyrics by Richard Hefner
- “Witch Is It?”, with book by Maureen Borillo, music by Matthew Levine, and lyrics by Richard Castle
- “Green Thumb”, with book by Joan Enguita, music by Nancy Gitlin, and lyrics by Joan Enguita and Karrie Vach
Starring: Sonia Alcazar, Patrick Foley, Barry O'Neil, Emily Kimmel Plotkin, and Gabrielle Wagner.
The four musicals are directed by John Sparks, with music direction by Jake Anthony.
Tickets are $25; the performances begin at 7:30pm. For tickets, reservations and more info: www.anmt.org !
