Redondo Music Theatre (RMT) 2009-2010 Season:


RMT presents its third season opening with MAN OF LaMANCHA, an audience favorite, a play within a play based on Miguel de Cervante’s novel “Don Quixote”.  It tells the story of a failed, dying old man whose impossible dream—a dream of unsullied love and unending gallantry—takes over his mind.  “The Impossible Dream” is a classic number from the show.


DATES:  November 6, 7, at 7:30 p.m., November 8 at 2:00 pm., 2009, TCC Leo Rich Theatre.  THREE PERFORMANCES ONLY!  Tickets:  $25 at all TCC and Ticketmaster outlets.  Discounts available.  Group sales available.


RMT’s second presentation of the season is the musical version of the very popular play and movie, “The Rainmanker”, 110 IN THE SHADE, both written by N. Richard Nash with music/lyrics by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt (“The Fantasticks”) a story about a love-starved spinster living in 1930’s farmland in the American southwest and her relationships with her family, the deputy sheriff and a con-man who poses as a rainmaker.  Its recent Broadway revival received outstanding reviews.  It stands up there among the best of the genre.
