Red Hot Patriot

About

 Roundabout Productions is proud to bring you the story of the unsinkable Molly Ivins, the famously brassy newspaper columnist and best-selling author, to the MRPAC stage for two shows only on Friday, June 28 and Saturday, June 29, 2019 at 7:30 pm.

As produced by the Walpole Footlighters in September, 2018, Marianne Phinney is Molly Ivins, a true Texas original, with a sharp-tongued wit who skewered the political establishment and the "good ol' boys" with her unforgettable humor and wisdom. Written by twin sisters, themselves longtime journalists, the play celebrates Ivins' courage and tenacity, even when a complacent America wasn't listening.

Parental Advisory for mature language.

NEXT SHOW

 

Next Show:  Ken Ludwig's "The Game's Afoot (or Holmes for the Holidays)"


It  is December 1936, and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world  over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his  fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. 


But  when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this  isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous.


Then  it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved  Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears.

The Lion in Winter by James Goldman

Additional Information

It's Christmas 1183, and King Henry II (Peter O'Toole) is planning to announce his successor to the throne. The jockeying for the crown, though, is complex. Henry has three sons and wants his boy Prince John (Nigel Terry) to take over. 


Henry's wife, Queen Eleanor (Katharine Hepburn), has other ideas. She believes their son Prince Richard (Anthony Hopkins) should be king. As the family and various schemers gather for the holiday, each tries to make the indecisive king choose their option.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Our annual seasonal favorite!

"Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no  doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it: and Scrooge’s name was good upon ’Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a  door-nail..."

The Crucible by Arthur Miller

Additional Information

The Crucible is a 1953 play by American playwright Arthur Miller. It is a dramatized and partially fictionalized story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692/93. 


Miller wrote the play as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the United States government persecuted people accused of being communists.[1] Miller himself was questioned by the House of Representatives' Committee on Un-American Activities in 1956 and convicted of contempt of Congress for refusing to identify others present at meetings he had attended.  The play was first performed at the Martin Beck Theatre on Broadway on January 22, 1953, starring E. G. Marshall, Beatrice Straight and Madeleine Sherwood. Miller felt that this production was too stylized and cold and the reviews for it were largely hostile (although The New York Times noted "a powerful play [in a] driving performance").


Nonetheless, the production won the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play. A year later a new production succeeded and the play became a classic. It is regarded as a central work in the canon of American drama.

Moon Over Buffalo - April 19-22, 2018

image55

In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend Me a Tenor, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with five actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf, old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.
