Follies_poster_webyStephen Sondheim’s Follies
To be Presented in Concert

At a reunion hosted by their former theatre, a parade of ex-showgirls with fractured pasts take the stage one last time. Surreal, sophisticated, compelling, heart wrenching and epic in scope, Follies by musical theatre legend Stephen Sondheim and author James Goldman, uses the musical theatre as a metaphor for the collapse of American innocence and naiveté in the post-Kennedy years. Inside a crumbling theatre, a group of ex-Follies who have come together for a reunion perform a number of brilliant pastiche numbers, including “Losing My Mind,” “I’m Still Here,” and “Broadway Baby.” Amid the reminiscing, two middle-aged couples confront some unpleasant truths about their past and present, and come face to face with the future. The civic will present this masterpiece of musical theatre in concert, emphasizing the raw emotional power that drives the show’s music.

Sensational, Sizzlin’ Summer Acting Session!

This summer give your child the ability to unlock his/her artistic potential! Civic Theatre’s Summer Acting Session is a fantastic opportunity to provide your child with the chance to grow in performance ability and enhance their confidence. But these aren’t the only benefits! Theatre education is a field that provides children with, not only the ability to engage in creative thinking, but also the critical-thinking skills useful in other disciplines (even math!). It will help your child learn how to better express what he/she is feeling and, of course, he/she will gain amazing collaborative-working skills from having to work with others!

Civic Theatre is providing children age 4 to 18 with the amazing opportunity to sign-up for ONE or BOTH of our summer sessions (for a whole summer full of fun)!
