Fiddler on the Roof

The Charleston Light Opera Guild will present Into the Woods 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.

Into the Woods is a musical that includes lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine. This enchanting production intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales and follows them to explore the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from "Little Red Riding Hood", "Jack and the Beanstalk", "Rapunzel", and "Cinderella", as well as several others. The musical is tied together by an original story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family, their interaction with a witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey.  


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. 


Fiddler on the Roof

Based on a book by Christopher Isherwood and featuring a score by Kander & Ebb, Cabaret tells the story of a nightclub in 1930's Berlin where a young English performer strikes up a relationship with an American writer, all while a zealous Master of Ceremonies commands the action at the Kit Kat Klub. The Guild will present this exciting high-energy summer production at its Guild Theatre in August 2015. Auditions will occur in June. Check back at the website for more detailed information.
