On Friday, Sept. 13, Peppermint Creek Theatre Company will be hosting their 2013-2014 season kick-off event, “The Bonnie and Clyde Fall Gala”, from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Miller Performing Arts Center located at 6025 Curry Lane in Lansing. This annual event allows PCTC patrons, supporters, and community members to kick off the new season with a small taste of what’s in store for their 11th season.
In keeping with the spirit of Bonnie and Clyde’s era, the Fall Gala will include food, wine, a silent auction, music from the period, a demonstration of swing dancing, and a preview of scenes from the season opener, Bonnie and Clyde, the musical. Tickets are $60 for one or $100 for a pair. Proceeds will support PCTC production and operational costs for the 2013-2014 season.
Attendees are encouraged to dress in period clothing, and of course, need a password to enter this night of whoopee (a good time, for those of us not familiar with 1920’s slang). Tickets may be obtained at www.peppermintcreek.org, and remember, “It’s going to be the bee’s knees.”
(btw Chad assures me that the "password" is "just creating ambiance…you don't need to remember the password!" for those of you who may share my confusion/paranoia - ;-} - See you there! - Jane)
Bonnie and Clyde, by Frank Wildhorn, will run at the Miller Performing Arts Center from Sept. 19-29, and focuses on America’s most renowned folk heroes, and Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmare, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. This musical tells the story of their love, adventure, and crime through a thrilling non-traditional musical score that combines blues, gospel, and rockabilly music.
Other shows in PCTC’s 2013-2014 season include Other Desert Cities by Jon Robin Baitz, Big Love by Charles Mee, Tribes by Nina Raine, and Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris. For more information about PCTC’s full season including season tickets and how to get involved, visit www.peppermintcreek.org.
