Hello New Classics Family!
We’ve been gone a long time and we hope you’ve missed us as much as we’ve missed you! But now we have exciting news! Thanks to the generosity of the wonderful people at the HyArts Cultural District we’ve been invited back to the Guyer Art Barn in beautiful downtown Hyannis this summer! And we’ve got a summer full of exciting performances for you to see!
As part of our Mainstage Season we’ll be producing two world premiere plays including:
Alex Comes Clean – Written and Directed by Matt Kohler
A young girl struggles with one of life’s biggest struggles, cleaning her bedroom. After being locked in her room by her evil babysitter Stephanie, Alex must make the decision to continue down her path of messy, disorganized familiar clutter OR embrace change and clean her room. Incidentally, her decision is prolonged by the arrival of an extraordinary and excitable imaginary friend named Barnaby. What follows is a hilarious romp following Barnaby and Alex’s adventures throughout Alex’s room and the answer to that age-old question: To clean or not to clean?
Alice – Written and Directed by Greg Parker
The world of Lewis Carroll’s Alice Liddell gets a makeover in this New Classics adaptation of an old classic. Combining elements of Through the Looking Glass and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Greg Parker’s adaptation, Alice takes us on the fantastical adventures of a modern Alice as she navigates the troubles of adolescence and the unknown wonders of the Looking Glass world.
Plus a special one weekend only performance of:
“Laugh it Up Fuzzball: New Classics Presents A New Hope!”
Brought to you by the team behind last summer’s hugely successful I’ve Got a Bad Feeling About This: A Tribute to George Lucas, this summer will see them setting their sights square on the original sci-fi phenomenon. With equal parts determination and silliness, join Matt, Brett, & Justin as they take on George’s first great masterpiece in this adaptation that promises to be gut-wrenchingly hilarious!
