Shirley Valentine
by Willy Russell
Directed by Colleen McClure
Starring Jessica Osbourne



Location: Aux Dog Theatre Nob Hill

Dates: February 5 through March 6
Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 2 pm

Genre: Comedy

Description: “I used to be The Mother. I used to be The Wife. But now, I’m Shirley Valentine again.”

Nominee! 1989 Tony Award, Best Play
Nominee! 1989 Drama Desk Award, Outstanding New Play
Named among the "10 most influential postwar British plays" by Guardian UK

The heroine in this actor's tour-de-force is an ordinary middle class English housewife (Jessica Osbourne). As she prepares chips and egg for dinner, she ruminates on her life and tells the wall about her husband, her children, her past and an invitation from a girlfriend to join her on holiday in Greece to search for romance and adventure. This hilariously engaging play was a hit in London and New York, performed by Pauline Collins, who later recreated her role on film garnering an Oscar nomination.

"Absolutely smashing." --The New York Post
"A joyful, captivating piece of theatre." --The New York Daily News
"A thrilling, cheer raising piece of theatre." --The Financial Times

Shirley Valentine was first presented by Bob Swash in London's West End in 1988, directed by Simon Callow. The play was subsequently presented on Broadway by The Really Useful Theatre Company, Inc., and Bob Swash at The Booth Theatre in New York City on Feburary 16, 1989.

The Odd Couple
by Neil Simon
Directed by Mike and Tish Miller



Location: The Adobe Theater

Dates: February 12 through March 6
Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm
plus, Thursday February 25, 7:30 pm (pay what you will)

Genre: Comedy

Description: Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple, the story of the mismatched roommates Oscar Madison and Felix Ungar, has delighted audiences on Broadway (1965-1967), in movie theaters (1968), on television (1970-1975), and on stages around the country (1970-Present).

After Felix is thrown out of his house after twelve years of marriage, Oscar takes him in and gives him a place to live. There’s a big problem, though. Oscar is an easygoing, sloppy sort of guy who enjoys life and doesn’t mind living in a dirty apartment. Felix, on the other hand, is an up-tight, neurotic neat freak who can’t stand any kind of dirt or disorder. The clash of wills is both inevitable and hilarious.

Directors Mike and Tish Miller have been involved in Albuquerque’s theatre community since the early 1980’s. They opened The Keystone Theatre (now Two Fools Tavern) on Central Avenue in 1987, producing 13 shows and several after-hours improv sessions. While they say they ‘were retired as theatre directors,’ when The Adobe asked them to consider directing The Odd Couple, the Miller’s immediate answer was an enthusiastic “Yes!”. Shows they have previously directed at The Adobe include Come Back To The Five and Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean, Little Mary Sunshine, Daddy's Dyin' Who's Got The Will, The Gay Deceiver, Whales of August, The Exonerated, and others.

The Adobe Theater’s production of The Odd Couple features Vern Poitras as Oscar and George Williams as Felix. Their “every-Friday-night” poker buddies are portrayed by Mike Van Ryzin (Murray), Ryan D. Morris (Speed), Jeff Hudson (Roy), and Greg Gardner (Vinnie). Maureen Trujillo and Lacey Bingham round out the cast as the Pigeon sisters, Cecily and Gwendolyn. (Or is that Gwendolyn and Cecily? Oscar never can get it right…).

Terra Nova
by Ted Tally
Directed by Mark Hisler and Aaron Worley

Location: The Vortex Theatre

Dates: March 25 through April 17

Genre: Drama

Description: Drawn from the journals and letters found on the frozen body of Captain Scott, the action of the play blends scenes of the explorer and his men at various stages of their ordeal, with flashbacks of Scott and his young wife and with fateful glimpses of his Norwegian rival, Roald Amundsen, whose party beat him to the South Pole. Refusing the use of sled dogs as unsporting, Scott and his team struggle to drag their heavy gear across a frozen wasteland, only to find that Amundsen has preceded them to their goal. The play is also a study of British pride and upper-class resolve--Scott's aristocratic sense of destiny and command and his young bride's ability to understand her husband's compulsive drive while failing to accept his motivations. But it is in the tragic trip back, as the members of the expedition die one by one, that the play reaches its dramatic apogee, capturing with chilling intensity the awesome bravery of men who must accept the bitter knowledge that suffering and death will be the only reward for their heroism.

Yo Soy Joaquín!
by Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales
Presented by Patricio Tlacaelel Trujillo y Fuentes

Location: NHCC's Wells Fargo Auditorium

Dates: March 31 through April 10
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Dramatization of an epic poem.

Description: An epic poem by Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzales famously associated with the Chicano movement of the 1960s, Yo Soy Joaquín! is presented by Patricio Trujillo in the form of a play. Joaquín speaks of the struggles the Chicano people have faced in trying to achieve economic justice and equal rights in the U.S., as well as in establishing their own identity.

If it can be said that there is such a thing as Chicano Literature, and there is, one would wonder what writer or poet would be at the top of that list. Undoubtedly one would find at the top of the heap, Rodolfo ‘Corky’ Gonzales epic poem Yo Soy Joaquín!. This work, first published in 1967, to this very day is often referred to by writers, researchers and historians as a pinnacle of the evolution and development of the Chicano Culture, referred to as ‘La Raza Cosmica,’ the New Race. Often time’s teachers and professors will use the poem in the classroom as a way of teaching the history of the Chicano Culture. Gonzales captures, in the poem, the history of the Chicano culture from the Aztec Empire through the Chicano today. This is undoubtedly one of the most important, historical, reflections of the face of the Chicano culture today.

For Patricio Tlacaelel Trujillo y Fuentes this poem is his blood, his heart beat and his way of life. Tlacaelel grew up in the 1960’s, in Pueblo, Colorado. He remembers the brown berets marching in parades. He recalls when schools would be dismissed for the day (September 16) so the students could take part in the many festivities taking place in public parks. What pride he felt when seeing the folkloric dancing, the Mariachi’s belting out their songs. Boxing matches going on in the parks as well. Yo Soy Joaquín! reflects Tlacaelel’s upbringing. He has known about the poem since he was 9 years old and he still clings to its words as one would cling to the bible.

We hope that you will enjoy this theatrical revival of this great poem.

Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Comic Opera

Description: In the second New Mexico premier of their 43rd season, Opera Southwest returns to their popular and critically acclaimed exploration of the music of Rossini, with his delightfully zany Il Turco in Italia (The Turk in Italy)--a fully staged opera with orchestra, sung in Italian with English translation supertitles and presented in two acts with one intermission. Fiorilla, the unsatisfied and coquettish wife of the exquisitely boring Don Geronio, meets the dashing Turk Selim-so she decides to fall in love. No one is more upset about this than her current lover, Narciso! Later, at a masked ball, tremendous confusion (and hilarity) ensues, as Selim ends up with his old flame Zaida while Fiorilla is cast out by Geronio. But, under the watchful eye of Prosdocimo the poet, all find forgiveness before the curtain comes down.

The Pericles Project
based on William Shakespeare's Pericles, Prince of Tyre
Directed by Randi Klein



Location: Aux Dog Theatre Nob Hill

Dates: April 15 through May 1
Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 4:00 pm
Special event Saturday April 23 on the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare's birth and death

Genre: Classical adventure drama

Description: From the 1609 Quarto edition title page: "With the true Relation and whole Historie, adventures, and fortunes of the said Prince. And also the no less strange, and worthy accidents, in the Birth and Life, of his Daughter, Mariana. As it hath been diverse and sundry times acted by His Majestie's Servants, at the Globe on the Bank-side."

Pericles must solve a riddle to win the hand of a fair damsel; knowing the answer, however, puts him in peril for his life, and he must escape the reaches of the bride-to-be's father. Another contest in another land wins him the hand of the fair Thaisa. Adventures and shipwrecks leave Thaisa lost at sea, their daughter Marina being brought up by supposed friends, and Pericles returning to rule Tyre once again. Misadventures and plots plague Marina. Will Pericles thwart the plots and be reunited with his daughter? Will he find love again? Come experience a free-wheeling, fun frolic through the world of Shakespeare's Pericles, Prince of Tyre. A group of actors explores this roving romp of an adventure, as they try to answer the burning questions: Will Pericles solve the riddle and find love? Will Dionyza carry off the assassination? Will Marina escape from the brothel? Will the goddess Diana intervene? Who will survive the shipwrecks? Where the heck is Tyre? And, perhaps most important, did Shakespeare write this galloping gambol?

Randi Klein directs an experimental look at this sprawling spree of a play attributed to Shakespeare... but did he or didn't he? Randi Klein is a director, teacher, actor, and writer, with a particular passion for making Shakespeare accessible. She received a BA in Theatre from Loyola University of Chicago, then headed to New York City, where her very first directorial effort, an evening of original one-acts by Jim Magnuson, earned Show Business "Best Direction" and "Best Production" awards. After years of theatre work all over the map, she became the first graduate directing student at Arizona State University, earning her Master's under the mentorship of Marshall W. Mason and Victoria Holloway. Randi recently wrote and performed her first autobiographical one-woman show, The House Next Door, at the QSolo Performance Festival at Aux Dog. She teaches at Sol Acting Academy and was a faculty member of Duke City Rep's inaugural Imagine Action Conservatory.

Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart.

Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere.

Pauley, a security guard with a bad gambling habit is in debt to a couple of bookies who are getting serious about collecting their money. Pauley decides to rob a bank to get the money. Nicky, his brother, is a washed-up lounge singer, trying to convince his family—and himself—that he’s still playing big venues but his most recent gig was a VFW Post in New Jersey. He’s hoping Pop’s will has enough money to get him back on his feet. Meanwhile their sister Mary and her husband Tony are dealing with their son who’s just been dumped by his girlfriend. It’s a pretty wild time for a funeral, a bank robbery and a family reunion.

It's the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging hard. Aqua Net, Lycra, lace and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strips last legendary venues, a place where sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star (and resident toilet cleaner) Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing (and longs for small-town girl Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes). But the rock and roll fairy-tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another capitalist strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri and the gang save the strip–and themselves–before it's too late? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake and more hold the answer.

Nominated for Five Tony Awards Including Best Musical!

Genre: Disney Musical

Description: Be Our Guest! The Academy Award-winning film comes to life in this romantic and beloved take on the classic fairytale.

Step into the enchanted world of Broadway's modern classic, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation that has played to over 35 million people worldwide in 13 countries. Based on the Academy-Award winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The original Broadway production ran for over 13 years and was nominated for 9 Tony Awards including Best Musical.

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and The Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If The Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If The Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

This "tale as old as time" is filled with enchantment. Musical Theatre Southwest's production of Disney's Beauty and the Beast is the perfect opportunity to come together for holiday family theatre at its best.
