A Grand Night for Singing

A Musical – Book and Lyrics by Rogers and Hammerstein
A Grand Night for Singing is presented through special arrangement with R&H Theatricals: www.rnh.com

Playing September 28 – October 15, 2017
Directed by Jimmy Phillips
Musical Direction by Stephen Jones

This Tony-nominated Best Musical is a loving tribute to the timeless genius of Rodgers and Hammerstein. Audiences will love the sultry Andrews Sisters-esque “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair”, discover “How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?” when sung by a lovelorn young lad, and delight in “Shall We Dance?” as a comic pas de deux. With more than 30 songs from the Rodgers and Hammerstein canon it will truly be a ‘Grand Night for Singing’.

MAIN STAGE SHOW

We’ve only been season ticket holders for two or three years. I wanted you to know that this performance was wonderful. My favorite to date. The acting was exceptional and the play was brilliantly directed. The staging and sound and lighting designs were excellent as well. What a performance… Thanks for all you are doing in Brenham.

All My Sons

A Drama by Arthur Miller
Playing February 1 – February 18, 2018

Directed by Kate Revnell-Smith

In 1947, Arthur Miller exploded onto Broadway with his first major work, All My Sons, winning both the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best New Play and the Tony for Best Author. This intense drama concerns the relationships between fathers and sons and the conflict between business and personal ethics. Joe Keller and Steve Deever, partners in a machine shop during World War II, turned out defective airplane parts, causing the deaths of many men. Deever was sent to prison while Keller went back to business, making himself very wealthy in the ensuing years. A love affair between Keller’s son, Chris, and Ann Deever, Steve’s daughter; the bitterness of George Deever, who returns from the war to find his father in prison and his father’s partner free; and the reaction of Chris Keller to his father’s guilt escalate toward a climax of electrifying intensity.

Becky’s New Car

A Comedy by Steven Dietz
Playing April 19 – May 6, 2018

Directed by Julia Traber

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-stricken 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 – if you had the chance to live a life you’ve always imagined and never dreamed possible – would you take it? Becky’s New Car is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, and a delightful drive down the road not taken.

Noises Off!

A Comedy by Michael Frayn
Playing June 14 – July 1, 2018

Directed by George Brock

“The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy.” New York Times. Winner of the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and Tony nominated for Best Play, this is an uproarious depiction of what goes on (and what goes wrong) backstage during a theatrical performance. The play chronicles the rocky final dress rehearsal and subsequent disastrous performances of a farce called Nothing On. As the cast and crew of a third-rate touring company attempt to negotiate the farcical demands of the play-within-the-play — fast entrances and exits, cases of mistaken identity, clothing quickly doffed and donned — a hilarious parade of madcap backstage mishaps threatens to derail the proceedings altogether.
