Historic Fayette Theater Announces their exciting 2014 Season
2014 brings exciting new opportunities to the Historic Fayette Theater. Once again, Main stage shows will form the core of our presentations, while special programming comprises the Second Season. These shows are designated as Second Season because they are often pre-cast and offer HFT regulars new opportunities. In addition, the Fayette Theater will be open for tours on Fridays from 10:00 to 2:00 p.m. The tours are free and open to the public.
The HFT 2014 season opens in March with our spring musical …The Rockin’ Tales of Show White, and Snow White has never felt so fresh and new with this funny adaptation that will make audiences young and old laugh out loud! New characters and comedic twists come to life as a modern mom reads the Brothers Grimm tale to her restless children. Musical styles of all genres fuse to create a rousing mixture of hip-hop, rock and roll, doo wop and more!
In May we invite you to come and meet Manny and Moo Moo, and see what happens when middle-aged misanthrope Manny Pridemore wins 34 Million dollars in the California Lottery, and now has obtained the means to achieve his long term ambition in life. If only things were that simple.
Summer brings on the fun of HFT’s Youth Drama Camp (date to be announced), and a story interesting of Kerry Kirkpatrick, a young bachelor comic-book artist, who thought he had found the perfect venue for conducting both his life and career, until he discovers his stately country home is haunted by the ghost of a Civil War Confederate cavalry officer in The Contrite Spirit opening in July.
Fall brings a flutter of activities at HFT and it all starts with The 39 Steps, in September, as a man with a seemingly boring life, meets a woman with a thick accent who says she's a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called "The 39 Steps" is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale!
The theater will partner again on October 1 with the West Virginia Professional River Outfitters Association and IQ Media to present an evening of exciting Whitewater Video Competition show time is 7:00 pm. And rounding out the fall productions will be Love, Loss, and What I Wore, opening October 17 is a show about matters of the heart and matters of the closet., accessorizing these tales — which are mostly comic but often sad or sentimental too — are the mothers who disapprove, the men who disappear, the sisters who’ve got your back.
You Better Watch Out, opens November 28. So plan to kick off the holiday season by coming and spending Christmas Eve at the Willow Inn with Tom, Jenny the new owners and Inn keepers and Art ( Jenny‘s father), who's been in a dark place for a very long time. A snowstorm is raging outside and it forces three strangers to take refuge at Willow Inn, but you better watch out because with the new guests, Rudy, Marsha and Mr. Smith all is not as it seems. And closing the season will be the annual concert from New River Youth Symphony and Chorus as they will be bringing joy to the season with Holiday and classical music, December 13 at 7:00 pm.
