In addition, bring an accurate list of all evening and weekend conflicts for September and October.

Mount Carroll--Timber Lake Playhouse (TLP) presents the area premiere of ‘S Wonderful: The New Gershwin Musical, an all-singing, all-dancing celebration of the brilliant music and lyrics of brothers George and Ira Gershwin.  The show, which includes over 40 classics like “I’ve Got Rhythm,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “Summertime,” “Rhapsody in Blue,” and “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” opens Thursday, August 15, 2013 and runs through Sunday, August 25th.

The show premiered in 2010 at Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera and has been a hit around the country. Five performers sing and dance their way through 5 different stories that transport the audience to 1940s Hollywood, 1920s New York, 1930s Paris, 1950s New Orleans and the present day. The cast includes Genna-Paige Kanago, Sarah Larson, Zak McMahon, Lexie Plath and Tim Wessel, all resident performers from TLP’s 2013 company. Wessel and Cameron Turner (Monty Python’s SPAMALOT) provide choreography.

Director Courtney Crouse said, “The beauty of the Gershwin’s music and lyrics is palpable. The feelings they evoked when first written, they still evoke today. It connects deeply with people everywhere. The storytelling we do with dance adds to the universal nature of these themes. It moves us, and we identify. It’s impossible not to.”

Gold Series Subscriptions for TLP’s next season are also on sale now. Summer 2014 brings a thrilling line-up that includes Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The new Mel Brooks musical Young Frankenstein, and the local premier of the most popular musical of all time, Les Miserables.
