The Cake by Bekah Brunstetter
Performed at The Studio Theatre Tierra Del Sol

November 22nd - December 18th, 2021

Is it ok to stray from the recipe? Jen and Macy are getting married! Macy comes from a Black progressive liberal New England family, while Jen's upbringing is from the white conservative south. When Jen returns home to get married locally she wants to hire her mother's charming best friend and Big American Bake-Off competitor, Della, to make her wedding cake. As a Christian woman, Della makes cakes, not judgment calls – those she leaves to God and her blue-collar husband, Tim. For the first time in her life Della has to think for herself. Her indecision about making a wedding cake for two women leaves Della and Jen at a crossroads covered and smothered in a mess of icing. This funny heartfelt play written by Bekah Brunstetter shows us how we all change when those we love bring us new perspectives.

An Intimate Evening with David Foster
Featuring Katharine McPhee
with Special Guests Fernando Varela, Pia Toscano, and Sheléa

December 13th - 15th, 2021

"I believe that everyone gets three rounds in their life," says musician, songwriter, composer, arranger, producer, and recording artist David Foster. "For me, two are completed and I'm on to Round Three. I think you have to change it up every round. My mantra is retreat and attack in another direction, which I've done twice. Now I'm going to do it again."

Foster's first round was as a studio musician, arranger, and recording artist. His second round was becoming one of the most successful songwriters and record producers in history - shepherding albums that have collectively sold in the hundreds of millions. This period of his four-decade career also found him creating The David Foster Foundation and volunteering his time and talent to over 400 charities, as well as becoming a household name as a performer throughout Asia where he tours annually.

Glenn Miller Orchestra

January 20th, 2022

The first Glenn Miller Orchestra did not make it at all. It was a total and absolute economic failure. But Glenn knew what he wanted, held to that dedication and relentlessly worked to succeed. He launched his second band - the one that lives on today - in March of 1938. The Glenn Miller Orchestra has been a "hit" ever since.

The legendary Glenn Miller was one of the most successful of all dance bandleaders back in the Swing Era of the 1930's and 40's. A matchless string of hit records, the constant impact of radio broadcasts and the drawing power at theatres, hotels and dance pavilion, built and sustained the momentum of popularity.

Urinetown, The Musical Music and Lyrics by Mark Hollmann, Book and Lyrics by Greg Kotis
Performed at The Studio Theatre Tierra Del Sol

January 25th - February 26th, 2022

It's a privilege to pee. Winner of three Tony Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of capitalism, populism, corporate mismanagement, and musical theatre itself. In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. So when nature calls the citizens must pay to use the amenities. These public potties are regulated by Urine Good Company, a malevolent megacorporation that profits off of humanity's most basic needs. A hero emerges from the oppressed masses and decides that he's had enough. Our hero plans a revolution, restores Hope, and leads them all to freedom! Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown's wickedly modern wit sustains its ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.

Boys have been singing at the Viennese court since the 14th century, and in 1498 - more than half a millennium ago - Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I moved his court and his court musicians to Vienna. Historians have settled on 1498 as the foundation date of the Vienna Chapel Imperial (Hofmusikkapelle) and thus the Vienna Boys Choir. Until 1918, the choir sang exclusively for the imperial court, at mass, concerts, private functions, and on state occasions.

Germán López
Spanish Canary Island folk music

March 3rd, 2022

Germán López shines on the world stage as one of the most brilliant and prolific young timple players. He touches audiences with original, instrumental music honoring Canary folk music traditions, embracing of Spanish Flamenco, West African rhythms, the flourishing spirit of jazz, and an innovative 21st century approach to performing "island music."

The timple is, without a doubt, the most significant instrument of the Spanish Canary Island folk music. Unlike other diminutive guitars, the timple contains 5 strings, and commonly tuned as GCEAD. More than fifteen years ago, a group of musicians (lead by José Antonio Ramos, Germán's principal timple teacher) began to experiment with alternative sounds for the timple, and treating it as a solo instrument — much like contemporary ukulele players have revolutionized the instrument to be the protagonist in Hawaiin folk music.

No. 6 by T.J. Young
Performed at The Studio Theatre Tierra Del Sol

March 29th - April 30th, 2022

Can we weather the unknown together? In 2001, the death of an unarmed Black man by the police has put the city of Cincinnati on edge. This incident has incited a five-day riot setting the citizens against the police force. During these violent protests, twins Felicia and Felix hunker down with their mother in their apartment. In lockdown, Felicia fine-tunes her natural history thesis while Felix, protective of his mother and sister, takes care of the family's needs. Returning from a risky grocery run, Felix brings home more than just dinner; he drags an unconscious white man into his family's apartment. The family attempts to find out who this man is and why Felix brought him home, while the riots grow and move closer. As we learn more about the strange man, this play asks us to confront the changes we all must make in order to avoid Felicia's hypothesis of extinction event No. 6.
