Fiddler on the Roof

The Charleston Light Opera Guild will present Oscar Hammerstein II and Jerome Kern's collaborative classic epic Show Boat at the Charleston Civic Center Little Theater on May 1, 2, 8, 9, 15 and 16, 2015 at 7:30 pm and on May 10, 2015 at 3:00 pm.

Show Boat is a 1927 musical in two acts, with music by Jerome Kern and book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. Based on Edna Ferber's bestselling novel of the same name, the musical follows the lives of the performers, stagehands, and dock workers on the Cotton Blossom, a Mississippi River show boat, over forty years, from 1887 to 1927. Its themes include racial prejudice and tragic, enduring love. The musical contributed such classic songs as "Ol' Man River", "Make Believe", and "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man".


Fiddler on the Roof

The Charleston Light Opera Guild will present Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein's comic and splashy spectacle La Cage aux Folles on June 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 and 20, 2015 as part of FestivALL Charleston 2015.

Based on the 1973 French play of the same name by Jean Poiret, it focuses on a gay couple: Georges, the manager of a Saint-Tropez nightclub featuring dragentertainment, and Albin, his romantic partner and star attraction, and the farcical adventures that ensue when Georges's son, Jean-Michel, brings home his fiancée's ultra-conservative parents to meet them.
