Moriarty was dead to begin with.
Not exactly your average Dickensian start to A Christmas Carol is it?
But these are the facts:
- Moriarty was dead to begin with
- Sherlock Holmes was in a mood most foul
- The Saint Gabriel Miracle Players are producing a most splendid holiday production right now
As luck or good holiday fortune might have it,
When your trust is all but shattered, when your faith is all but killed— because every company and their brother all across the state of Maryland seem to be turning out productions of Stephen Schwartz’ pre-Wicked musical wonder, fear not! And prepare ye the way of Chuck Dick, who— like Lazarus— has risen with strength and fortitude to set Pasadena Theatre Company back on its feet! And what better way to do it than with an iconic and textbook production of Godspell?
Who? Who? Who? The St. Gabriel Miracle Players. What? What? What? The King & I upon the stage as the 2016 spring musical. Directed by Chuck Dick with Musical Direction by Rob White and a live Orchestra conducted by Matt Elkey, this tried and true Rogers & Hammerstein classic comes to the community in the very merry month of May with all of its iconic music, well-loved stories, etc. etc.
Come errant knights and ladies! For it is time to sally forth toward the windmill—er, castle—and into the grand and touching tale of Don Quixote de La Mancha! Man of La Mancha, Directed by Heidi Toll, with a Book by Dale Wasserman and Music and Lyrics by Mitch Leigh and Joe Darion respectively, is now playing at Saint Gabriel Miracle Players and boy is it a fun time! Performed as a “play within a play” this slightly pared-down version of the musical flourishes in its simple staging and still packs a wallop for theatre-goers of all ages.
Every time a bell rings an angels gets his wings; so listen closely to see if you can hear the bells ringing at the Pasadena Theatre Company presents the non-musical version of the Frank Capra film It’s A Wonderful Life.
