Mazeppa Productions presents XANADU: Hilarity on Wheels and In Leg Warmers

Screen Shot 2014-06-08 at 4.22.44 PM

 

July 9th-26th

A hit on Broadway in 2007, Xanadu is a hilarious, award-winning musical comedy adventure about following your dreams. Xanadu follows Kira, a beautiful, magical Greek muse, who is sent on a quest from the heavens to inspire a young artist to achieve his greatest dream – to build a roller disco! (Yep, it’s the 80s!) Based on the cult-classic film starring Olivia Newton-John, this rollicking, roller-skating, disco-dancing adventure weaves popular ’80s songs like “Magic,” “All Over The World,” “Suddenly,” “I’m Alive,” “Evil Woman,” and “Xanadu” into the show The New York Times called “simultaneously indefensible and irresistible.”

May 24th - 25th @ 3pm
 
COMMUNITAS is an acrobatic dance piece accompanied by live music. Human sculptures and physical encounters animate the tale of the founding of a civilization. Virtuosic movement becomes a language of storytelling in action, evoking mountains, deserts, coasts, and home. Traversing these mythic landscapes, performers come face-to-face with their own limitations and exhaustion, and together strive to overcome them.

Tickets $10-$20
Call 520-477-2012  or www.thealmanac.us

Kid friendly. 70 minutes.
Neighborhood House members can select the $10 student/artist rate on website.
