Etcetera Late-Night Series Offering Up Angst, Lost Love, World Travels and More in DEAR DIARY on April 13 and 14

Live Theatre Workshop's Etcetera Late-Night Series presents:

"Dear Diary" from Ally Tanzillo is April 13 + !4

 

More from Ally Tanzillo: https://youtu.be/7kS0zfHjpqA

 

(TUCSON—March 25, 2018) —From the shoeboxes in the back of Tucson's closets, Live Theatre Workshop's Etcetera Late-Night Series bring you an original night of middle school angst, lost first love, news of world travels, drug-induced revelations, and more. You sent in your best (or worst) diary entries and letters and we are acting them out for the world to see. Ally Tanzillo's particular brand of humor and heart is guaranteed to make this night of theatre hilarious and probably a little embarrassing.

 

Tanzillo's inspiration for the show came partly from re-reading her own youthful diaries. "Young people are so intense, but they don't have any context. I can't believe how serious I was about the lists I made – favorite albums, boys I thought were cute…And when I read submissions from others and talked to people for this project, I noticed that every person had a story in which he or she felt alone, but no one really was. That really struck me. I knew I could connect to that and make it funny."

 

Tanzillo began taking theatre classes at Live Theatre Workshop (LTW) when she was nine years old until she graduated from high school in 2009. She performed in two LTW Family Series shows while she was in college. Tanzillo is part of an improv duo with Gretchen Wirges called Ex-Boyfriend; they recently performed at the San Diego Improv Festival.

 

"When LTW Executive Director Michael Martinez and I got the idea for this show, I knew Ally would be just the right person to put it together. Her wit and on-point comic instincts mixed with her soul-baring honesty on stage and off made her the perfect person to do justice to these most personal writings that were submitted," said Etcetera Late-Night Series Director Maryann Green.

 

Tickets and Reservations: Tickets are $10 and are available by calling (520) 327-4242and online at http://livetheatreworkshop.org

 

LIVE THEATRE WORKSHOP - 5317 E. Speedway Blvd., Tucson, Arizona 85712. Located on the north side of Speedway between Rosemont and Craycroft roads. Easy, convenient parking available.

 

The Etcetera Late-Night Series offers new and seasoned, local theatre artists the opportunity to create original performances that reflect the variety of Tucson's culture and population, with the goal of unifying all of us through shared experiences. It is the late-night arm in the Live Theater Workshop lineup and is directed by Maryann Green.

 

Live Theatre Workshopproduces inclusive, accessible and affordable professional theatre and theatre education that entertains, educates and enlightens children, adults, and families. Because art has the power to transform people and communities, LTW uses the performing arts to make a difference and pass on a passion for theatre to the next generation. LTW is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization supported by grants and generous people who appreciate LTW's Mainstage plays, Family Series productions, Etcetera Late-Night productions, and year-round theatre education for youth.

Arizona Opera presents The Marriage of Figaro

 

TUCSON

Saturday, April 13, 2019 - 7:30pm

Figaro has fallen in love—but it’s complicated. On the day of his marriage to Susanna, Figaro’s master, the Count Almaviva, has set his wandering eye on the bride-to-be. Soon, everyone in Seville is scheming to achieve their own happy ending. But ultimately, only forgiveness can untangle this knot of love, loyalty, and misunderstanding. Overflowing with joyous music, Mozart’s witty, timeless tale reminds us what it means to be flawed—what it means to be human.

WINDING ROAD THEATER ENSEMBLE ANNOUNCES 2019-2020 SEASON

WINDING ROAD THEATER ENSEMBLE ANNOUNCES 2019-2020 SEASON
Four Main Stage productions and three Staged Readings highlight list of shows

Tucson, AZ, March 21, 2019 — Winding Road Theater Ensemble today announced productions for its 2019-2020 season, continuing its commitment to quality as Tucson' s "indie" live theater company.

Main Stage Productions

The season opens with the fall 2019 main stage production of The Little Foxes by Lillian Hellman, an American classic first staged at the National Theatre in New York. Directed by the Ensemble's Co-Artistic Director Glen Coffman, this morality drama about corruption and greed within a wealthy, early 20th century Southern family has been revived more than a half-dozen times since its premiere in 1939.

In December 2019, the Company will present The Big Meal, a hilarious, expansive tale that traverses five generations of an ordinary modern family in 90 minutes. Written by Dan LeFranc, The Big Meal won the 2010 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award and received a 2012 Lucille Lortel Award nomination for Outstanding Play. This production is directed by Co-Artistic Director Maria Caprile.

In February 2020, Winding Road will stage Angels Fall by Lanford Wilson. Set in a remote part of New Mexico, six people find themselves in a small mission church, brought together by the closing of a highway due to a possible accident at a nearby nuclear facility. Sometimes brightly humorous, sometimes deeply affecting, Angels Fall becomes a parable of vocation and survival which, in exploring the lives of its characters, illuminates the human condition. This production will be staged as a site-specific work at St. Luke's Chapel and is directed by Molly Lyons.

The Company will end its 2019-2020 season with the second annual Eight 10s in Tucson 10-minute play festival. Playwrights from all over the United States are invited to submit scripts that are then juried "blind" by a panel of local playwrights and performance artists. Eight plays are selected to create an eclectic mix of comedic, dramatic, and fantastic stories for theater-goers, all in a single evening' s performance.

Winding Reads

Once again, Winding Road will present "Winding Reads", a series of full-length plays presented as

staged readings at venues throughout the Tucson area. Selections for 2019-2020 include:

·         The Wrong People Have Money by Reed McColm

Popular York University professor Martin Delancey is challenged by a wealthy consortium of investors to conduct a serious study into the feasibility of an "impossible" endeavor. Delancey and his team encounter myriad obstacles in that study, but it may just tum a wild idea into a major business opportunity. The Wrong People Have Money is the funniest play ever written about moving Greenland South.

·         Christmas Break by Tucson playwright Monica Bauer

When daughter Lilly comes home from college with newfound passion, the McNally family has a big decision to make: invest in Lilly's scheme to end world hunger or pay for life saving treatment for the family pet. Add a teenaged son longing to be the center of attention and a retired monk looking for a place to land and you've got all the ingredients needed for a Christmas to remember.

·         The Women of Lockerbie by Deborah Brevoort

A grieving mother from New Jersey roams the hills of Lockerbie, Scotland, looking for her son, lost in the crash of Pan Am 103. Loosely inspired by a true story and written in the structure of a Greek tragedy, it is a poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate.

Winding Road Theater Ensemble is a non-profit Tucson-based theater company. Co-founded in 2008 by Glen Coffman and Toni Press-Coffman, the Company is committed to telling dynamic theatrical stories that illuminate the human condition and celebrate theater's power to entertain diverse audiences.

Arizona Repertory Theatre presents the Eight Time Tony Award Winning Musical, Spring Awakening

Arizona Repertory Theatre presents the Eight Time Tony Award Winning Musical, Spring Awakening

 

 

Tucson, AZ – Arizona Repertory Theatre presents Spring Awakening, the eight time Tony Award winning musical, April 7-28, 2019 in the Tornabene Theatre located at 1025 N. Olive Road (UA campus located near the SE corner of Park Avenue and Speedway Boulevard)

 

Spring Awakening, based on Frank Wedekind’s play of the same name, explores with poignancy and passion, the complex journey from adolescence to adulthood of a dozen young people in 1891 Germany.  With a book and lyrics by Steven Sater and music by pop star Duncan Sheik, Entertainment Weekly calls Spring Awakening the most gorgeous Broadway score this decade.

 

Directed by Assistant Professor Hank Stratton, Spring Awakening is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality and rock-n-roll.  “The juxtaposition of the text against the rock and folk-infused score by Duncan Sheik, and the aggressive (and at times vulgar) lyrics by Steven Sater, may feel contrary or erratic given the play’s overall tone and through line.”  Stratton further explained, “But it is this contemporary cross-styling and disturbing diegetic format that allows for not only our characters, but also our student actors to explore and experience an unending world of primal expression.”

 

Ticket prices range from $20 to $31.  Discounts available for students, seniors, military, UA employee/alumni and groups of 10 or more.  Tickets can be purchased at tickets.arizona.edu or by calling the College of Fine Arts Box Office at (520) 621-1162 or in person at 1025 N. Olive Road.  Box office hours of operation are Monday-Friday from 12-4pm. 

 

Spring Awakening has a run time of 2 hours 16 minutes including one 15-minute intermission.  A pre-show discussion is scheduled on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 12:45pm.  A post-show discussion with members of the cast is scheduled on Friday, April 26, 2019 following the performance.  Spring Awakening contains mature themes, strong language and partial nudity.  Spring Awakening is sponsored by Richard and Yvonne Morris.
