Hairspray Jr.

April 28 @ 7:00 pm

Presented by Coastal Performing Arts Foundation (CPAF)

You can’t stop the beat in this big and bold adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical about one girl’s inspiring dream to dance and change the world!

The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray JR. is the family-friendly musical piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs. Adapted from the Broadway production that won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Hairspray JR. is a show that will celebrates diversity and brings audiences to their feet with its positive message and uproarious sense of humor.

It’s 1962, and spunky, plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has one big dream – to dance on the popular “Corny Collins Show.” When she finally gets her shot, she’s transformed from social outcast to sudden star. In balancing her newfound power with her desire for justice, Tracy fights to dethrone the reigning Miss Teen Hairspray, Amber von Tussle, and integrate a TV network in the process. With the help of her outsized mom, Edna, and guest DJ, Motormouth Maybelle, the rhythm of Tracy’s new beat just might prove unstoppable.

Under the direction of Natalia Salsbury, Coastal Youth Theater has proven time and again that they are so much more than “kids theater”. With the Musical Direction by Mark Robertshaw, and choreography by Brianna Devereaux, audiences will be amazed by the professionalism and talent of these young performers, sets and costumes. Past productions include Aladdin Jr., Fiddler on the Roof Jr., and Annie Jr.

Held in the Studio Theater

General Admission: $20, Seniors $18, Kids 18 and Under $16

Curtains

Presented by AGHS Theatre Department

Wikipedia:

The Pirate! and The Firebird!

June 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Presented by Everybody Can DANCE & Santa Maria Civic Ballet

The Pirate, or Le Corsaire, tells the adventurous story of Medora, a Greek girl in love with the pirate, Conrad. She is very beautiful and two of Conrad’s crew conspire to kill Conrad and kidnap Medora to sell her into slavery. Medora saves Conrad’s life, but loses her freedom. Conrad vows to rescue her and races off with his faithful first mate Ali to have his revenge.

The slavers, Lankedem and Birbanto, bring Medora and their other captives to the Pasha Seyd, king of the Ottomans, who purchases Medora for his harem. Medora befriends another slave, Gulnare, and they dance together in the Pasha’s Garden of Delights. Conrad and his pirates enter the Pasha’s palace disguised as religious pilgrims, but when the guards bow their heads to pray, the pirates knock them out! Leaving the treacherous Lankedem and Birbanto behind to face punishment for their crimes, Conrad and Medora, and Ali and Gulnare sail off for new adventures.

Stravinsky’s Firebird tells the legend of the sorcerer Koschei the Deathless, who sold his soul to the devil in exchange for eternal life. Young princesses are held captive in his castle, and Koschei turns anyone who tries to rescue them into stone. Many unlucky men have been caught before. The Firebird is chased into the garden by Prince Ivan, who seeks her feathers; according to legend, a phoenix feather will win any fight.

With the feather in hand, Ivan storms the castle gate to rescue the princesses, but is instantly captured by Koschei who begins to turn Ivan into stone. At the very last moment, Ivan waves the feather in the air, and Firebird comes to the rescue! She bewitches Koschei and his minions to sleep and tells Ivan the secret to breaking Koschei’s immortality: smash the egg that contains his soul. Koschei dies, and all his magic dies with him. The princesses are free, their princes alive once again, and the couples rejoice in the new dawn.

Children ages 3 and up are invited to attend and meet the characters.

General Admission: Adult – $20, Children – $15
