The Addams Family


The Charleston Light Opera Guild in collaboration with the Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences will present The Addams Family on October 27, 28, 29 and November 3, 4, and 5, 2017 at the Maier Foundation Performance Hall at the Clay Center

This dark comedy with its kooky, mysterious and spooky singing characters is a perfect show for Halloween. The show is based upon The Addams Family characters created by Charles Addams in his single-panel gag cartoons, which depict a ghoulish American family with an affinity for all things macabre. 

 

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee


The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a musical comedy that centers on a fictional spelling bee in the gymnasium of the Putnam Valley Middle School. An eclectic group of 6 quirky middle school students (usually played by adults) arrive at the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, each eager to win for different reasons. The Bee is run by an equally quirky group of 3 adults. Four real audience members are invited on stage during each performance to compete alongside the 6 characters.

With a book by Rachel Sheinkin and engaging, tuneful score by William Finn, the 2005 Broadway production won the Tony Award and Drama Desk Award for best book.

The Charleston Light Opera Guild will present this witty and humorous musical at the Charleston Light Opera Guild Theatre on January 19, 20, 26, 27 and 28 and February 2, 3, and 4, 2018. 

 

My Fair Lady


Lerner and Loewe's award-winning story of a cockney flower girl transformed into an elegant lady is widely considered one of the greatest musicals of all times. When My Fair Lady opened on Broadway with Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison, it collected six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, while the film version with Audrey Hepburn and Harrison took home eight Oscars, including Best Picture.

The Charleston Light Opera Guild will present this masterpiece at the Charleston Civic Center Little Theatre on April 28, 29 and May 4, 5, 6, 11 and 12, 2018. The Guild has not produced this timeless classic in 25 years.

Based on George Bernard Shaw's play, Pygmalion, My Fair Lady is that rare musical by which all others are measured. Eliza Doolittle is a young flower seller with an unmistakable cockney accent which keeps her in the lower rungs of Edwardian society. When Professor Henry Higgins tries to teach her how to speak like a proper lady, an unlikely friendship begins to flourish. With a book by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe the musical features one of Broadway's greatest scores.
