Nickel and Dimed
by Joan Holden, based on Barbara Ehrenreich's true-life expose Nickel and Dimed, On (Not) Getting By in America
Directed by Brian Hansen

Genre: Comedy/Drama

Description: Can a middle-aged, middle-class woman survive when she suddenly has to make beds all day in a hotel and live on $7/hour? Maybe. But one $7-an-hour job won’t pay the rent; she’ll have to do back-to-back shifts, as a chambermaid and waitress. This isn’t the first surprise for acclaimed author Barbara, who set out to research low-wage life firsthand, confident she was prepared for the worst. This play shows us the life a third of working Americans now lead, and makes us ask the question: should anyone have to live it?

Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One--born with emerald green skin--is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for “the most complete--and completely satisfying--new musical in a long time." --USA Today

Genre: An oral history play.

Description: Ranching families live out scenes of land, loss, and community from the 1920s through the 1950s in four communities--now ghost towns--south of Cuba, New Mexico. A boy flees raiding parties; influenza decimates a family; a viejita recounts somber and funny rituals with santos; another sings ballads about tragedies; together they recount losing cattle and livelihoods to land regulations and narrate ghost stories about brujería and cosas raras--witches and strange sights. As the characters say, “aunque nosotros olvidemos, el pasado recuerda”--"Even if we forget, the past remembers."

Each performance will be preceded by a brief “Share Your Recuerdos” open mic; community members are invited to bring a memento from yesterday, or many yesterdays ago, and share a three- to four-minute anecdote.

Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm

Genre: Musical

Description: Here is Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s. Head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights” as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as “Greased Lightnin’” and “We Go Together,” recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An 8-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals along with the iconic 1978 film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have made Grease one of the world’s most popular musicals!

The Boxcar
By Silvia González S.

Part of Siembra: Latino Theatre Festival

at the National Hispanic Cultural Center

Location: NHCC's Wells Fargo Auditorium

Dates: October 16-26
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Drama

Description: In 1987, a group of men set out in search of a better life for themselves and their families, entering the United States as undocumented immigrants, looking to make a dollar or two. Each man had his dream, and all were willing to endure whatever hardships might befall them in the few hours to come. Over the years, many have survived this perilous method of entering the U.S., placing their lives in the hands of others. Tragically, many have not. NHCC and Teatro Nuevo México are presenting Silvia Gonzalez S.’s play The Boxcar that recreates the lives of these men in a story of extraordinary bravery, passion, love of family, and hope,

The Boxcar is by the award-winning Latina playwright Silvia Gonzalez S. It was originally presented in Spanish as El Vagón by the famed New York theatre company Repertorio Español. Gonzalez feels that in the current political climate it is important to honor those who have experienced similar disasters, abandoned in boxcars and truck trailers by the human smugglers called coyotes. “I knew this was going to happen again and again. I felt I had to do something. Somehow inspiration hit me to write some scenes for this play. The characters just spoke to me. It was the first play I had ever written focusing on immigration issues.”

Beatriz promptly vents her pent-up frustration at the shortcomings of her men, past and present, grabs Olivia in the middle of the night and heads west in a desperate fury. Their road trip destination is two thousand miles across the country. The mother's skin is brown, the teenage daughter's white. A tenuous bonding begins as the reunited pair runs fast and furious from the secrets in their lives, hunting valuable antiques, chasing Arctic explorers, and getting lost in Wyoming's wilderness. So what if reality's nipping at their heels?

"Charming, spunky, and ultimately heart-rending . . . The car trip from Paoli, PA to Yellowstone Park is transforming and restorative." --The New York Times

"Irresistible family drama . . . The play's greatest triumph is Beatriz . . . Frantic, foolish and unapologetically direct, Beatriz is one the most original and refreshing matriarchs to come to any stage in a long, lon time" --The Denver Post

Upon the Fragile Shore (staged reading)
by Caridad Svich
Directed by Valli Marie Rivera
Produced by Camino Real Productions, LLC
Part of the "NoPassport for Human Rights" International Reading Scheme
Featuring Monica Sanchez, Diane Villegas, Erin O'Shaughnessy, and Elias Gallegos



Location: NHCC's Wells Fargo Auditorium

Dates: Saturday November 22, 2:00 pm

Genre: Intertwining monologues

Description: Upon the Fragile Shore is a play for four actors that explores human rights and environmental issues around the world, especially in relationship to human-made tragedies and their aftermath. The play centers on stories from the United States, Nigeria, Syria, Malaysia, sub-Sahara, and Venezuela. Seven interlocking stories and fourteen characters played by four actors. All of us living on the fragile shore. A play about tragedy, hope, faith, and who we are as audience.

"NoPassport" asks with this play, Upon the Fragile Shore, for all of us to consider how we live in vulnerable spaces, be it due to coastal erosion and ‘vanishing ways of life,’ in resistance to oppression, during and after wars, and in the suspended fragile states of collective grief. These readings, thus, are offered as a way to build sustaining connected spaces for us to consider our vulnerabilities in an already fragile world, and how we can find strength in these spaces.

The play is having readings during October and November 2014, throughout the world. Participating theatres include: Ensemble Theater of Norway, Ion Theatre (San Diego, CA), Theater Alliance (Washington D.C.), National Institute of Dramatic Art (Sydney, Australia), Alameda Theatre (Toronto, CA), University of Pretoria (South Africa) Dept of Theatre, and Baruch College (NYC), Missing Bolts (Digital Film Action, NYC), CalArts (California); Teatro Paraguas (Santa Fe, New Mexico); Theatre Asylum (Canada) and alumni reading at New Dramatists (NYC).

Gypsy
Music by Jule Styne
Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Directed by Hal Simons
Music direction by Julia Manganaro
Choreographed by Wendy Leverenz Barker

Location: The Rodey Theatre

Dates: November 22 through December 7
Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm

Genre: Musical Theater

Description: Gypsy is based loosely on the memoirs of famous striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee although the main focus of the musical is on Rose, the archetypal show-business mother who raises Lee (Louise) and her sister June as they travel around America with their vaudeville act. Gypsy is considered by many to be the greatest American musical and the role of Mama Rose is often called the 'King Lear' of the musical theatre canon. Songs from Gypsy have since become show business standards: "Everything's Coming Up Roses", "Some People", "Let Me Entertain You", and, of course, "Rose's Turn".

Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a short temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand...and his name is Shrek.

Full of all-new songs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, Shrek the Musical is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!

"A triumph of comic imagination with a heart as big and warm as Santa's. It is the most ingeniously wacky, transcendentally tasteless Broadway musical since The Producers." --USA Today

Genre: Musical

Description: East versus West makes for a dramatic, richly textured and ultimately uplifting tale of enormous fascination. It is 1862 in Siam when an English widow, Anna Leonowens, and her young son arrive at the Royal Palace in Bangkok, having been summoned by the King to serve as tutor to his many children and wives. The King is largely considered to be a barbarian by those in the West, and he seeks Anna’s assistance in changing his image, if not his ways. With both keeping a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, Anna and the King grow to understand and, eventually, respect one another, in a truly unique love story.

Noises Off
by Michael Frayn
Directed by Henry Avery

Location: Albuquerque Little Theatre

Dates: April 10-26
Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 pm
Sundays, 2:00 pm
plus Thursday April 23, 7:30 pm

Genre: Comedy

Description: Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called “Nothing’s On.” The play takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. This comedy-within-a-comedy captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of “Nothing’s On” in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance toward the end of the run. Each performance is portrayed from behind the scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a backstage farce of slamming doors, falling trousers and flying sardines!
