2008 Theatre and Dance Spring Season

January 8, 2008 :: No. 124

Who: Department of Theatre and Dance at Cal State Fullerton
What: 2008 Theatre and Dance Spring Season
Where: Cal State Fullerton’s Performing Arts Center
800 N. State College Blvd., Fullerton

The five-show 2008 Cal State Fullerton Theatre and Dance spring season includes “A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM” by William Shakespeare, “AS IT IS IN HEAVEN” by Arlene Hutton, “CITY OF ANGELS” with music by Cy Coleman and lyrics by David Zippel, “THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA” by Tennessee Williams and the SPRING DANCE THEATRE.

“A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM” is Shakespeare’s popular romantic comedy featuring two mismatched couples, a fairy king and queen, and a magical forest where mischief and mayhem invariably ensue. Directed by Denise Schulz, “A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM” performs March 7-23 in the Young Theatre.

“AS IT IS IN HEAVEN,” by Arlene Hutton, is the story of a historic Shaker community, the American religious phenomenon, as they deal with challenges to their society and beliefs. Set in 1830’s Kentucky, this drama features the ecstatic religious experiences and distinct culture of the Shakers, and how the movement is changed and perhaps endangered by newcomers.  Directed by Patrick Pearson, “AS IT IS IN HEAVEN” performs March 7-23 in the Hallberg Theatre.

The Broadway musical set for the Little Theatre will be “CITY OF ANGELS,” with music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by David Zippel and book by Larry Gelbart. The musical is two shows in one, as a young novelist attempts to write a movie screenplay in glamorous 1940’s Hollywood. Directed by James R. Taulli with musical direction by Mitchell Hanlon, “CITY OF ANGELS” runs March 28-April 20 in the Little Theatre and is a College of the Arts production.

Tennessee Williams’ tropical drama of sexual intrigue, compassion, and the hope of redemption, “THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA” is the story of two travelers running away from their pasts and discovering each other in surprising circumstances. Directed by Kevin Slay, “THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA” is set to perform April 18-May 4 in the Young Theatre.

SPRING DANCE THEATRE, coordinated by Gladys Kares, offers student and faculty choreographed pieces, and will be performed May 1-11 in the Little Theatre.
