Tickets to Good Vibrations: “Receive” More than You “Give”!

FH Theater BeachParty 7.5x7.5 Facebook HRWant to get that “Good Vibe” of receiving tremendous value when you make a purchase?

That’s exactly what you ‘get’ when you ‘give’ $100 per ticket for the Fountain Hills Theater’s annual Broadway in the Hills fundraising extravaganza.  You’ll start the Good Vibrations evening rockin’ to the West Coast harmonies of the Southwest Surfers Band, while you try to out-bid your buddies for dozens of outstanding auction items.  After cocktails, you’ll share a table with friends and enjoy a bit of dancing before your delicious chef-inspired dinner.  As you polish off a luscious dessert, the highlight of the “Broadway” evening unfolds: a lushly-costumed 60’s style Floorshow showcasing the Theater’s musically-gifted singers and dancers.

Often even frequent theater-goers are surprised to know that performance ticket sales alone do not support the infrastructure and operations of a theater company. And though modest, even “Fun-raisers” have base-line expenses. And that is where our selfless sponsors and donors come in.

southwest surfers 02Copperwynd Resort and Club and Cummings Pest Control stepped up as the initial ‘Keystone’ sponsors to underwrite this year’s Broadway in the Hills, followed by Cornerstone and Pillar sponsors Sami Fine Jewelry, Highland Chateau Party and Event Planning, Sapori D’Italia, the Arizona Lottery and Crusizees Travel Agency.
So go on line or call today to get your Broadway in the Hills tickets—Deadline to buy is March 1….just around the corner.   Enjoy the Good Vibrations of knowing that you are supporting a cultural icon’s on-going operations and at the same time, guaranteeing you and your friends a rollicking good time.

Before there was the popular movie The Birdcage, there was the Tony award- winning, smash hit Broadway musical, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES. After twenty years of bliss, Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better-or-worse, get a shock when Georges’ Ivy League son announces his impending marriage to the daughter of an ultra-conservative politician.

Further complicating the situation, Albin and Georges run a flamboyant drag nightclub in St. Tropez, where Albin is the star performer ‘Zaza.’

Pulitzer Prize-winning Play Opens At Fountain Hills Theater

Sunday in the Park with George with Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

November  6 – 22, 2015;

Sunday_in_the_Park_Original_PlaybillThe Fountain Hills Theater shines the brightest with its musical productions. The intimate venue transports the audience inside the story with the actors, the live music and unique choreography casting its spell.

Sunday in the Park with George is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine. The musical was inspired by the painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” by Georges Seurat. A complex work revolves around a fictionalized Seurat immersed in single-minded concentration while painting his masterpiece and the people in that picture.

Seurat paintingThe first Broadway production opened in 1984, winning the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, two Tony Awards for design (and a nomination for Best Musical), numerous Drama Desk Awards, the 1991 Olivier Award for Best Musical and the 2007 Olivier Award for Outstanding Musical Production.

Shimmering with love and light, this unique, inventive musical is one of the most acclaimed shows of our time.  Sondheim’s soaring score and James Lapine’s award-winning book intertwine with Seurat’s distinctive art to create a moving, poetic drama that explores the complexity of life and the art of understanding it.

Mystery Whodunnit at Fountain Hills Theater

Any Number Can Die

October 12-November 1, 2015

Thursday, Friday, Saturday 8 p.m.; Sunday, 2 p.m.

Any Number Can Die PictureIn the late 1920s, 10 complete strangers (or are they?) find themselves on a secluded island, trapped inside an abandoned mansion, aptly called Raven’s Head. One by one they fall victim to an evil killer and it’s up to a pair of sleuths to find the murderer, before he/she finds them. Then they are summoned to a mysterious midnight reading of the Will…very spooky.

Any Number Can Die is a hilarious spoof of the Agatha Christie-style mysteries, complete with all manner of engaging “suspects.”  Does the heiress know about the Mansion’s hidden doors?  Maybe the Butler did it?  Or will the unassuming spinster, Ernestine Wintergreen pull a ‘Miss Marple’, and find the killer?

This grand farce is rollicking fun, and a perfect venue for the whole family.  We are entering the height of the cultural season now, so a sell-out is likely.
