Ghent Playhouse Annual Panto – “Rapunzel: The Tale of a Quaran-Teen”

 

The Ghent Playhouse’s Annual Panto returns with “Rapunzel: The Tale of a Quaran-Teen”.

The outrageous “Loons” are finally back with their annual Panto.  Now in their 21st Season, the Panto Loons’ family-friendly productions have all the elements of a traditional British pantomime:  audience participation (booing, hissing, cheering), local and national politics, great characters, wonderful songs and lots of cross-dressing.  Holiday fun for the whole family.  This year, see their “twist” on the famous Brothers Grimm fairytale, Rapunzel, the story of the girl all “tressed” up with nowhere to go… ‘cause she’s stuck in a tower with no doors, silly!!  Join us to see how it all turns out.

Ghent Playhouse Presents ‘The Chalk Garden’

unnamed-2

 

The Ghent Playhouse presents ‘The Chalk Garden’, with performances from January 31 through February 16.

This psychological chamber piece was revived to critical acclaim on the West End in 2008. In 1955 Sussex, England, a dyed-in-the-wool British dowager and her precocious and equally eccentric granddaughter are about to meet their match in Miss Madrigal, the enigmatic household companion with secrets, who has just been hired. A tantalizing, fascinating and stimulating evening of theatre

The Ghent Playhouse Presents, Miracle on South Division Street

Screen Shot 2019-02-08 at 10.12.31 AM
The Ghent Playhouse’s 2019 season is off and running with Miracle on South Division Street.

Clara Nowak, of Buffalo, NY, and her three grown kids have always known they were special, ever since the miraculous night in 1942, when the Blessed Mother appeared to their grandfather in his barbershop! Since then the neighborhood has looked upon the Nowaks’ commemorative shrine as a beacon of hope and faith amidst the urban rubble. When daughter Ruth announces her plans to write and star in a one-woman show about the family miracle so the “whole world will know,” a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel.
