Into the Woods
Cancelled for Now | See it in SEPT!
A musical fantasy by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Old Opera House Theatre Company will cancel their current production, Into the Woods sponsored by WVU Medicine. The plan is to move this show to September, and have it open the Old Opera House’s 2020-21 Season. After eight weeks of rehearsal, and countless hours spent building scenery and costumes, this decision was unfortunate, but not difficult in light of the current circumstances. It is in the best interest of our patrons and performers. We have a wonderfully supportive audience and do not want to put anyone at risk.
Those that have already purchased tickets to see Into the Woods, should contact the Old Opera House to have their reservations changed.
Moon Over Buffalo
MAY 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 10
Comedy by Ken Ludwig
In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend Me a Tenor and A Comedy of Tenors, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s. Now, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with five actors.
On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf, old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.
