Manship Theatre presents: The Hitmen

Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Carly Simon, Elton John, Barry Manilow, Carole King, Tommy James & The Shondells, Sting, Paul McCartney, Three Dog Night, Christopher Cross and Alan Parsons were among the most beloved and influential pop music artists of the second half of the 20th century.  And all share another common denominator:  at some point during their careers, each had at least one of THE HIT MEN playing behind them on the road or in the studio.

THE HIT MEN – a supergroup consisting of Lee Shapiro, Jimmy Ryan, Jeff Ganz, Russ Velazquez and Steve Murphy – either played, sang or did both on some of the most memorable hits of the era, including “Who Loves You”, “Oh What a Night”, “The Loco-motion”, “Peace Train”, “Mony Mony”, “Joy to the World” and other songs in which they used their talents to spin wax into gold and platinum.

"Cows that type? Hens on strike! Whoever heard of such a thing!" Farmer Brown cries.

When his granddaughter Jenny comes for a visit, Farmer Brown declared the farm a "tech-free zone." He confiscates her laptop in the cold barn along with the shivering cows who use her computer to type messages requesting blankets.

"No way," replies Farmer Brown. "No blankets!"

So the cows go on strike and the chickens join them in solidarity. No blankets: no milk, no eggs!

Will Farmer Brown give in to the animals' demands? Will Jenny get her computer back? Find out in a hilariously "mooooo-ving" musical about negotiation and compromise, based on the Caldecott Honor Book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.

Lightwire Theatre- Moon Mouse: A Space Odyssey at Manship Theatre

Marvin the mouse wants to be popular. Constantly bullied and picked on by the “cool” mice, he is labeled as a loser and a geek. To get away from the continuous badgering,

he retreats into his science books and a world of fantasy. He longs to have adventures, to be the hero.

Join Marvin on the space adventure of a lifetime; a trip to the surface of the moon on his homemade rocket, where he meets a strange cast of misfit creatures, learns of

infinite peril and awesome beauty. Will Marvin make his dreams come true and bring him the glory and acceptance he craves?

Lightwire Theater is proud to present MOON MOUSE, a cosmic adventure about celebrating differences.

 

The escape route that Harriet followed soon became known as the Underground Railroad, and she quickly became one of its most celebrated 'conductors.' Up creek beds, through swamps, over hills in the dark of night, on 19 secret trips Harriet Tubman guided more than 300 slaves, including her aged parents, to freedom. "I never run my train off the track," she said, "and I never lost a passenger."

Freedom Train tells the thrilling story of Harriet Tubman, the Moses of her people, in a fascinating series of highly theatrical scenes that use dance, dialogue, and music of the period.

Happy Birthday Martin Scorsese with Mean Streets (1973)

This November Manship Theatre presents a Martin Scorsese retrospective in honor of the acclaimed filmmaker’s 75th birthday month. An innovator who is as devoted to film history as he is to filmmaking, Scorsese’s work spans 50 years of master storytelling that is a culmination of influences that range from The French New Wave and Italian Neorealism film movements to his native New York City Little Italy neighborhood. Aside from the signature Scorsese trademarks—violence, profanity, morality, religion and redemption—his films inhabit deep character studies that allow audiences to relate to his often anti-hero protagonists, (frequently played by longtime collaborator Robert De Niro).


Directed: Martin Scorsese
Written: Martin Scorsese and Mardik Martin
Starring: Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, David Proval

A small-time hood aspires to work his way up the ranks of a local mob.
