Doo Wop Wed Widing Hood
A 50’s Musical!
Book by Charlie Lovett
Music and Lyrics by Bill Francoeur
Directed by Lynda Johnson
Music Direction and Choreography by Janet Sheehan
May 6, 7 & 8, 2016
It’s the 1950s, hula-hoops are in high demand, and so is Little Red Riding Hood! Wise Prince Jason (winner of the Math Olympics and the Nobel Prize), Strong Prince Justin (who can bench press his own mother) and ordinary Loud Prince Frank all want to woo Red Riding Hood. There the king, the queen, a Fairy Godmother, the wolf, the dragon, the evil queen and Little Red’s couch-potato parents to set it all into musical motion.
Produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Englewood, Colorado
Marblehead Little Theatre’s
TOTALLY NEW THEATER FESTIVAL
Marblehead Little Theatres’s in-house new play development program, the TNT–Totally New Theater Collective, will hold its eighth annual festival on Saturday, May 28th at 8:00 pm at Marblehead Little Theatre.
In addition to original ten-minute plays, this year’s festival will also offer one-minute plays,
monologues and songs.
The 2015-16 collective includes Judith Black of Marblehead, Julia Bobkoff Sundlie of Marblehead, Richard Fay of Lynnfield, Anne Lucas of Marblehead, Michael McClung of Swampscott, and Mary Beth Smith of Rockport.
Marblehead resident Shari D. Frost produces the year-round collective and annual festival, and is also a participating playwright.
Frost is excited that this year’s festival will experiment with different short forms of dramatic storytelling and noted that, “this year’s plays explore compelling contemporary issues, themes and characters by both new TNT playwrights and old. We’ve got dramas and comedies — something for everyone — and an incredible cast lined up. It’s really shaping up to be our best festival yet.”
Admission to the TNT Festival is free, but there will be a suggested donation at the door which opens at 7:30pm at MLT, 12 School Street, Marblehead.
