Summary:

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece… and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

One of Sondheim’s most popular works, Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy. Designers will especially enjoy highlighting the fantastical elements of this magical word. – Musical Theatre International

Summary:

Fall out from a satellite probe shot to Venus returns to Earth carrying a mysterious radiation that transforms the unburied dead into flesh-eating zombies. Seven people trapped in an isolated farmhouse, held hostage by the ravenous ghouls, begin to turn on each other as the dead encroach. A gripping terror-filled monochromatic play that brings all the fright of the cult classic to life. This blend of thrilling horror laced with touches of black humor envelops the audience in the action and unfolds into a shocking theatrical ending. “There are a lot of characterization possibilities in this piece. We got to work on the dynamics of fear, terror and the human responses they elicit. The zombies loved playing out evil.” (Krista Klander-man, Menasha High School, Menasha, WI.) –Dramatic Publishing

Seven-year-old CJ is staying with his Nana, in a world considerably different from the one he’s used to. CJ goes on his first bus ride – it’s loud and gritty and NEW! Guided by Nana, CJ travels a little closer to his roots and sees that things are not always what they seem. This is one hip-hop, eclectic, heart-thumpin’, toe-tappin’ joy ride!

“Last Stop on Market Street is what a children’s theater should be. It does not talk down to its audience. It is burgeoning with wonder. If you are a kid, you’ll giggle yourself silly. If you were once a kid, you just might remember what that felt like.” –Chicago Sun Times

Summary:

The story takes place in the home of the wealthy Orgon, where Tartuffe—a fraud and a pious imposter—has insinuated himself. He succeeds magnificently in winning the respect and devotion of the head of the house, and then tries to marry his daughter and seduce his wife and scrounge the deed to the property. He nearly gets away with it, but an emissary from King Louis XIV arrives in time to recover the property, free Monsieur Orgon, and haul Tartuffe off to jail. And so his duplicity is finally exposed and punished. But not before the author has mercilessly examined the evil that men can commit in the guise of religious fervor and the dangers that imperil those who would believe only what they choose to believe despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary. –Dramatist Play Service

“…an astonishingly delightful romp…” –New York Post.

“Stylish, bright, saucy.” –New York Journal-American.

“…a rollicking evening of grace and fun.” –Newsday (NY).

Summary:

[where•else] is the School of Theatre’s first Community Based Theatre Project as part of our production season. Led by professor Robi Arce-Martínez, students from UNCG will embark on a journey using storytelling, multiple disciplines, interviews from their communities, and lived experiences to create a new devised performance from the ground up at the Elsewhere Museum in downtown Greensboro!

Community Partner:

What is the Elsewhere Museum?

Elsewhere is a living museum, artist residency, and learning laboratory set within a three-story former thrift store in Greensboro, North Carolina. The building houses an immense collection of things amassed by Sylvia Gray, who gathered wares over the course of 58-years. The store was once a furniture store, fabric store, surplus and secondhand store. The space now provides a context for site-specific experimentation, interdisciplinary collaboration, and public participation.

The rule at Elsewhere is that everything that is being created in the residencies need to incorporate objects that are already in the building. Example: If one artist stages their performance with a door nailed down to a chair, the next artist in residence could come in, destroy it and create something new with the parts. The Elsewhere Museum operates in an eternal cycle of creativity, destruction and creation. For more go to: www.elsewheremuseum.org

Summary:

Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden); and it took the world by storm. Led by the international hit, “Day by Day,” Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All for the Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side.” A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life. Boasting a score with chart-topping songs, a book by a visionary playwright (John-Michael Tebelak) and a feature film, Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences. Because of its small technical demands and minimal cast size, it has become a staple of theatre companies, large and small. -Musical Theatre International 

GODSPELL-2012 Revised Version is presented through special arrangement with Musical Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com

About the Amplify Black Voice Theatre Festival: 

Get excited for the Amplify Black Voice Theatre Festival 2024, happening right in Greensboro this April! The Greater Greensboro Theater Consortium, in collaboration with local colleges and community members, is bringing together a dynamic celebration of Black voices in theater. The festival kicks off with a welcoming event and reception, followed by two thrilling evenings of theater on April 26 and 27, featuring two captivating plays each night. 

But there’s more—after the curtains close, the stage will come alive again with insightful discussions. Audiences will have the chance to engage with the cast, playwrights, and esteemed guest speakers such as Kamilah Bush and Michael Dinwiddie, diving into the themes of Black stories, lives, and the ongoing conversation on racial equity. 

This festival was born out of a collective response to the national call for racial justice in 2020. The Greater Greensboro Theater Consortium, uniting seven local college theater departments, including institutions like Bennett College, NCAT, and UNCG among others, aims to amplify Black narratives through the power of theater. Our inaugural festival in 2022 laid the groundwork, inspired by Greensboro’s deep-rooted legacy of social justice and civil rights activism. 

The Amplify Black Voices Theater Festival continues to champion new playwrights from the Greensboro area, offering them the opportunity to develop their work with professional playwrights and dramaturgs. This festival is not just about staging readings; it’s about premiering new works that center the Black experience, fostering dialogue, and inspiring change. 

Join us for this impactful celebration, where the power of theater brings us together to honor, reflect, and advance the conversation on racial equity. It promises to be an unforgettable experience.
