A searing, multi-media poetic riff on race in America, fusing prose, poetry, movement, music, video, news and the visual image. Snapshots, vignettes, on the acts of everyday racism. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams, online, on TV - everywhere, all the time. Those did-that-really-just-happen-did-they-really-just-say-that slurs that happen every day and enrage in the moment and later steep poisonously in the mind. And, of course, those larger incidents that become national or international firestorms.
The blockbuster hit story of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins returns to Village Theatre's stage - 12 years after shaping its triumphant premiere.

Now it returns home, complete with the hit songs of the 1950s you know and love.

What follows is a hilarious adventure as The Prince and his friends try to win back their betrothed before war breaks out between the antiquated men of the kingdom and the warrior maidens of Castle Adamant. Surprises, twists and turns abound as disguises are revealed, hearts are laid bare, and magic is unleashed at Castle Adamant! Crystal Dawn Munkers leads this exhilaratingly updated take on the battle of the sexes - complete with operatic warrior maidens, a cross-dressing trio of dandies, and a bit of magic. Princess Ida will be performed in three acts, with two 10-minute intermissions.
Verdi's tense and brutal tale of a megalomaniac's bitter minion caught in a web of lechery, betrayal, and revenge runs the emotional gamut in true operatic fashion. Hugely popular ever since its Venice premiere, the indelible melodrama boasts memorably complex characters and an action-packed plot propelled by a parade of iconic, unflaggingly brilliant music, especially the iconic La donna e mobile. It's Election Night at the Presidential Palace and the Duke of Mantua is holding court. Contrasting the bawdy ostentation of the privileged and powerful with the gritty squalor of Rigoletto's working class struggles, director Lindy Hume pulls no punches drawing comparisons to newsmakers of today.
