The schedule includes:

·        City Circle Acting Company’s production of Monty Python’s SPAMALOT (October 25-November 1, performances Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 2pm).  This Tony-Award winning  musical is “lovingly ripped off” from the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Tickets are $12-$27.

·        Flutes for Food (November 6 at 6:30pm) Students of West Conservatory teachers Megan Hofeldt, Beth Ramsey, Shivhan Dohse, and Sarah Beland perform in solos, duets, and small group ensembles.  The program concludes with the West Music Flute Choir of over 40 flutists performing Simple Gifts. The price of admission is a non-perishable food item to benefit the Johnson County Crisis Center, North Liberty Food Pantry, and Coralville Ecumenical Food Pantry.

·        Vital Theatre Company’s national tour of Angelina Ballerina The Musical (November 10 at 1pm and 4pm

).  This fun-filled family musical has delighted audiences across the country!  Based on the beloved books and the PBS Kids® animated series, this production features Angelina and her friends Alice, Gracie, AZ, Viki, and their teacher Ms. Mimi.  Everyone is aflutter because a special guest is coming to visit Camembert Academy.  Angelina is the most excited of all, but will she get the starring moment she hopes for?  Tickets are $15.

·        The Alejandro Ziegler Tango Orchestra (November 12 at 6:30pm).  Directly from Buenos Aries, the Alejandro Ziegler quartet will perform classical tango, mixed with their own compositions.  Ziegler’s style of tango music reflects both innovation and tradition.  Audience members are invited to dance on the stage during the concert.  Tickets are $12-$23; patrons have the option of adding on a special reception with the artist at Mendoza Wine Bar for an additional $8.
