Whine, Women and Song

May 14 - May 16

This original piece is a musical tribute to the ladies of song from the ‘30s, ‘40s, ’50s and ‘60s. Six lovely ladies will sing the songs and add lots of laughs along the way. The songs are well known for their beauty, charm, young ideas and their angst. Some of the songs which will be performed include Pearl Bailey’s Legalize My Name, Lotte Lenya’s Pirate Jenny, Patti Page’s Old Cape Cod, Marlene Dietrich’s Falling In Love Again, Martin Martin’s My Heart Belongs to Daddy, Judy Garland’s The Man That Got Away, Ethel Merman’s Everything’s Coming Up Roses, Julie London’s Cry Me a River, and the Andrew Sisters’ Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.

Also not to be forgotten are the wonderful girl groups of the periods, The Chiffons, The Shirelles, the Chordettes, the McGuire Sisters, the Dixie Cups, and the lovely Lennon Sisters. The Whinettes bring humor and their love of music to this cabaret of love!

Fiddler on the Roof JR.

June 17 - June 27

Fiddler on the Roof JR. is a student version of the musical Fiddler on the Roof which features music by Jerry Bock, a book by Joseph Stein and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and is based on Sholem Aleichem's stories by special permission of Arnold Per. Recognized as one of great American musicals, the original Fiddler on the Roof won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, nine Tony awards and a special Tony in 1972 for its unique contribution to Broadway.

The musical tells the story of a poor dairyman, Tevye, who in the little village of Anatevka, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tightly knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia.  The traditions of his ancestors are shattered as his daughters assert their independence and government troops brutally force Tevye and his fellow villagers from their homes.  The curtain falls on Tevye’s uplifting determination to create another life in the New World.
