Just when everything seems perfect a horrible prank unleashes Carrie’s telekinetic powers on her high school classmates and teachers, destroying all. Carrie has a book by Lawrence D. Cohen, lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and music by Michael Gore.

olga1

Olga is a young a cappella group that approaches old traditions in a fresh way, combining enthusiasm, humor, and drama with genuine vocal clarity to enrapture both young and old. Their repertoire covers more than five centuries of musical joy, and the ensemble is already known for their unique programs, in which moving classical music comes together with popular repertoire. They can sing a medieval Icelandic drinking song and follow it with a top-40 hit. The ensemble, which includes Dutch, Icelandic, and Russian members, was founded in 2012 while the members of the group were students at the Utrecht Conservatory in the Netherlands. Since then they have toured internationally and recently released their first recording, which includes music from the Netherlands, Iceland, Russia, Scotland, and America.

chiu1

Frederic Chiu’s intriguing style springs from a diverse set of experiences and interests – his Asian/American/ European background, his musical training, and an early and ongoing exploration of artificial intelligence and human psychology, especially the body-mind-heart connection. With over 20 CDs on the market, some have been singled out, such as “Record of the Year” by Stereo Review, “Top 10 recordings” by The New Yorker, with raves from The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. He was the recipient of the Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Petscheck Award of the Juilliard School, and was a fellow of the American Pianist Association. Chiu’s program will include selections by Bach, Debussy, and Prokofiev.

verse2

Perhaps the most widely read American poet of the twentieth century, Robert Frost returns to the stage in A.M. Dolan’s This Verse Business played by the Emmy award winning actor and New Hampshire native Gordon Clapp. Clapp is perhaps best known for his role as Detective Greg Medavoy on NYPD Blue and for his Tony nominated role in the acclaimed Broadway production of Glengarry Glen Ross.

For fifty years, Robert Frost traveled the country giving talks and performing his poems. Partly based on these public appearances, This Verse Business not only gives us Frost, the rascally wit of the platform, but also Frost at home, the private man alluding to his family and speaking about his relationship with art. Frost taught at PSU (then Plymouth Normal School) in 1911 and a statue of him can be found in the middle of campus.

$35-$30 adult, $33-$28 senior, $20-$15 youth
