Cinderella Russian National Ballet Theatre

“Cinderella” is the classic story of the lowly stepdaughter who is tormented by her cruel stepmother and stepsisters, but with the help of her fairy godmother, gets to go to the ball at the palace, and eventually wins the heart of her prince. The sumptuous costumes, jubilant music by Prokofiev, lush scenery and hilarious double-roles of the stepsisters make the Russian National Ballet Theatre’s presentation of this masterpiece and evening not to be missed.

The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow in the late 1980s during the transitional period of Perestroika, when many great dancers and choreographers of the former Soviet Union began exercising their newfound freedom by starting new, vibrant companies, bringing a fresh, invigorating spirit to the timeless tradition of classical ballet.

STOMP

STOMP, the international percussion sensation, is making its triumphant return to the Gallagher-Bluedorn! The return of the percussive hit also brings some new surprises,with the show now updated and restructured and the addition of two new full-scale routines, utilizing props like tractor tire inner tubes and paint cans. STOMP is explosive, provocative, sophisticated, sexy, utterly unique and appeals to audiences of all ages. Garnering an impressive armful of awards and rave reviews, the eight-member troupe has appeared on numerous national television shows using everything but conventional percussion instruments – matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps – to fill the stage with magnificent rhythms. As USA Today says, “STOMP finds beautiful noises in the strangest places.” STOMP. See what all the noise is about.

“If you haven’t seen STOMP, GO! If you have seen it, take someone and share the pleasure!” - Boston Globe

Strayer-Wood Theatre comedy: "November"

Under the direction of Jay Edelnant, David Mamet’s fiendishly funny, over-the-top comedy November offers no mercy in its satirical stab at American politics. Meet President Charles Smith, the most corrupt, inept hack ever to sit in the Oval Office. It’s the final days of his bid for a second term, but the country is a mess and his poll numbers are “lower than Gandhi’s cholesterol.” Toss in a lesbian speechwriter longing to marry her sweetheart on national television, a cynical chief of staff, Thanksgiving turkeys awaiting pardon, and enough shady backroom scheming to make even Bernie Madoff blush, and you’ve got an ideal way to gear up for the 2012 election.
