THE MUSIC MAN:
The story of a charismatic conman who convinces a bunch of kids to participate in the arts, thus teaching them and their parents a thing or two about community. Sound familiar? Yeah, it's basically R2P the Musical. And since this show is leading off R2P's 10th Season, we're doing something a little different, and the charismatic conman will be played by R2P's own artistic director and resident charismatic conman Joey Steinhagen. Since the romantic lead opposite Harold Hill obviously can't be played by a teen, Marian the Librarian will be played by Lynn Craver, artistic director of one of our favorite sister organizations, Opera Ithaca
. All other roles will be played by R2P company members. The show will be directed and choreographed by R2P favorite Tucker Davis. All grades. Performances January 13-15.ALL IN THE TIMING:

Performances February 24-26JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT: For our show that features the youngest half of our company, it’s a non-stop genre-switching smash that manages to incorporate every musical style from 50’s rock to country/western to 60’s go-go to French torch song – all while telling a familiar and colorful story.
