Emperor's New Clothes, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department

1997-1998 Season

A vain emperor who cares about nothing except wearing and displaying clothes hires weavers who promise him they will make him the best suit of clothes. The weavers are con-men who convince the emperor they are using a fine fabric invisible to anyone who is either unfit for his position or "hopelessly stupid". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Emperor%27s_New_Clothes

1776, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department

1997-1998 Season

In the days leading up to July 4, 1776, Continental Congressmen John Adams and Benjamin Franklin coerce Thomas Jefferson into writing the Declaration of Independence as a delaying tactic as they try to persuade the American colonies to support a resolution on independence. As George Washington sends depressing messages describing one military disaster after another, the businessmen, landowners and slave holders in Congress all stand in the way of the Declaration, and a single "nay" vote will forever end the question of independence. Large portions of spoken and sung dialog are taken directly from the letters and memoirs of the ...

Ten Little Indians, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department Aug 1997

Ten Little Indians, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department

1997 Summer Theatre

The superlative mystery comedy, top-notch, fantastic, enjoyable nonsense. Ten Little Indians refers to statuettes on the mantelpiece of a strange country house on an island off the coast of Devon, and to the nursery rhyme embossed above them, telling how each little Indian met his death -- until there were none. The excitement never lets up until the final curtain.

Our story begins in a faraway kingdom long ago. Due to an unhappy curse, King Sextimus is unable to speak. Meanwhile, his terror-of-a-wife, Queen Aggravain, has taken over control of the kingdom. Most importantly, in an attempt to keep Prince Dauntless single, she has decreed that only the princess that can pass her test may marry her son. Further, no one else in the kingdom may marry until Prince Dauntless does. Lady Larken and Sir Harry are extremely disturbed by this fact since Lady Larken is now pregnant with Sir Harry's baby.

Marcus Is Walking: Scenes From The Road, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department May 1997

Marcus Is Walking: Scenes From The Road, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department

1996-1997 Season

On the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of the car, the play examines the emotional landscape we roam as we travel in our cars. Control, navigation, love and escape, are some of the themes explored. A protective father shepherds his son through the neighborhood on Halloween; an actor on his way to perform Hamlet provokes a rear-end collision and confrontation with a Czech émigré cab driver; a devastated businessman strikes up an unlikely alliance with a homeless woman who sleeps in his car. This is the landscape of human frailty and vulnerability, charm and strength; a playwright's whimsy combined ...


Cabaret, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department May 1997

Cabaret, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department

1996-1997 Season

Cabaret takes place from 1929-1930, a time when Berlin, in the midst of a post-World War I economic depression, is transitioning from a center of underground, avant-garde cultural epicenter to the beginnings of Hitler’s totalitarian regime and the rise of the Nazi Party. Into this world enters Clifford Bradshaw, a struggling American writer looking for inspiration for his next novel. On his first night in Berlin, Cliff wanders into the Kit Kat Klub, a seedy nightclub overseen by the strange, omniscient and gender-bending Master of Ceremonies, “the Emcee.” Here, Cliff meets Sally Bowles, a vivacious, talented cabaret performer, and ...

Noises Off, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department Feb 1997

Noises Off, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department

1996-1997 Season

Michael Frayn's Noises Off takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run. Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre behind the scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Brimming with slapstick ...
