THEATER / PERFORMANCES
BAINBRIDGE SYMPHONY PRESENTS: Mahler Symphony No1.
Saturday, March 4 at 3 p.m. at Bainbridge High School. $21 Adults, $18 Senior, Students free with paying adult. Tickets through Bainbridge Performing Arts. Mahler had an exceptionally interesting yet tumultuous life. His music evokes an expansive emotional gamut, ranging from the most despairing to the frivolous. Conducting for the world’s greatest orchestras and opera houses, Mahler left behind some of the most significant work in the symphonic repertory. He continuously pushed at the boundaries of form, scope, orchestration, and performance. In his First Symphony we get a glimpse of this extraordinary human and the music born from his fertile imagination.
BAINBRIDGE PERFORMING ARTS PRESENTS: AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY
March 17th - April 2nd - Friday & Saturday @ 7.30 p.m., Sunday @ 3 p.m. at Bainbridge Performing Arts, 200 Madison Ave. Adults $29- Seniors $24 - Students $21. Click here for tickets. A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you've got a major new play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award.
BAINBRIDGE TO BROADWAY and THE TEMPEST
Tuesday March 28 and Thursday March 30, both showtimes at 7 p.m. at Bainbridge Performing Arts, 200 Madison Ave. Adult $12 - Senior $8 - Children/Students $8. Click here for tickets. This event features two plays for the price of one! The first, Bainbridge to Broadway is our annual student musical revue. This year we're telling the story of a group of aspiring Broadway stars who have to babysit a group of children and spend the evening spinning them a wild tale pulled from their favorite musical stories. Then teens from our program will perform The Tempest, one of Shakespeare's most magical, mysterious, and cerebral works in which a wizard, cast away for many years on a remote, enchanted island has the opportunity to wash his enemies ashore and lead them in a merry chase.
