9 to 5: The Musical

The Charleston Light Opera Guild has selected 9 to 5: the Musical as its Spring 2014 production.

9 to 5: the Musical is based on the hit movie and features Dolly Parton's original hit title song along with her new Tony Award and Grammy-nominated score.  The book is by Patricia Resnick (co-writer of the original screenplay). 9 to 5: the Musical tells the story of three unlikely friends who conspire to take control of their company and learn there's nothing they can't do — even in a man's world. Outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic, 9 to 5: The Musical is about teaming up and taking care of business… it's about getting credit and getting even. Join us for this spirited musical comedy!

9 to 5: The Musical will be presented at the Charleston Civic Center Little Theatre on May 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee performance on Sunday May 11 at 3:00 p.m.

Tickets will be sold to the public beginning April 28, 2014 at the Civic Center Little Theatre Box Office. Box Office hours are Monday through Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and one hour prior to performance. All seats are reserved and $20 each. This production is sponsored by the Charles & Mary-Fayne Glotfelty Foundation.


Fiddler on the Roof

The Charleston Light Opera Guild is thrilled to close out its 65th Anniversary season with a mounting of the musical theatre masterpiece, Fiddler on the Roof, to be co-presented with the Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences of West Virginia on October 31November 1, 2 , 7, 8, and 9, 2014.

The Charleston Light Opera Guild has previously produced Fiddler on the Roof in 1972, 1978, 1989 and most recently in 2000. Audition information will be forthcoming.


Catch Me If You Can

Based on the hit DreamWorks film and the incredible true story that inspired it, Catch Me If You Can is the high-flying, splashy musical that tells the story of Frank W. Abagnale, Jr., a teenager who runs away from home in search of the glamorous life. With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer - living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. But when Frank's lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, Carl chases Frank to the end...and finds something he never expected.

The Guild will be presenting this exciting new production as part of FestivALL in June 2014 at the Charleston Civic Center Little Theater. Audition information will be forthcoming.


The Wedding Singer

Based on the New Line Cinema film starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room.

It's 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party, until his own fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

The Wedding Singer features a large chorus with many featured roles for actors who sing, and dancers who act. This show will be presented by the Guild in August 2014 at the Civic Center Little Theatre as its young adult summer theatre production. Audition information will be forthcoming.
