HCAF, Point Theatre announce 55th anniversary season
Hill Country Arts Foundation and The Point Theatre announces the historic 55th anniversary Theatre Season for 2014.
"We have a great show line-up for 2014 - something for everybody," said Artistic Director Lorenzo Nichols.
The 2014 Season will begin with "The Big Five-Oh" by Brian Mitchell. Mitchell's comedy looks at Professor George Thomas who is turning "The Big Five-O," and who will discover the wonders of his family, the responsibilities of parenthood, and the results of his latest physical.
"The Big Five-Oh" runs Feb. 7 through Feb. 22 in the Elizabeth Huth Coates Indoor Theatre.
Next on the 2014 Season, Hill Country Arts Foundation will present "The Clean House" by Sarah Ruhl. This theatrical and wildly funny play is a whimsical and poignant look at class, comedy and the true nature of love.
"The Clean House" opens March 28 and runs through April 12 in the Elizabeth Huth Coates Indoor Theatre.
Opening The Point's summer on the outdoor stage is an adaptation form the classic novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery, "Anne of Green Gables," which runs June 6 through June 21 in the Smith-Ritch Point Outdoor Theatre. Auditions are scheduled for March 1.
Following "Anne," The Point will stage the big summer musical, "Young Frankenstein," with book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan and music and lyrics by Mel Brooks.
Based on the 1974 film of the same name, "Young Frankenstein" opens July 4 and continues through July 19 in the Smith-Ritch Point Outdoor Theatre. Auditions are scheduled for April 12.
The gang from Tuna, Texas returns to The Point stage again with "Red, White, and Tuna" by Joe Sears, Jaston Williams and Ed Howard. "Red, White, and Tuna" opens on August 8 and runs through August 23 in the Smith-Ritch Point Outdoor Theatre. Auditions are scheduled for May 10.
In an exciting move, Hill Country Arts Foundation will return to Stonehenge II to stage William Shakespeare's "Macbeth." Shakespeare's tragedy receives new life at HCAF's largest art installation. Performance dates for "Macbeth" will be announced later in the season. Auditions are scheduled for June 14.
Rounding out the 2014 Season is "The Christmas Foundling" by Norman Allen, inspired by the stories of Bret Harte. When a baby boy is orphaned in the California Sierras on Christmas Eve, 1850, two curmudgeonly miners agree to raise him.
"The Christmas Foundling" will run Nov. 21 through Dec. 6 in the Elizabeth Huth Coates Theatre. Auditions are scheduled for August 30.
