The trial run of Starlight INDOORS last January got two thumbs up from the vast majority of guests who attended, so the “show will go on” again this fall and winter after Starlight Theatre’s traditional outdoor season has concluded. We are pleased to share the news of four Off-Broadway-style shows that will warm up the indoor spaces at Starlight from October through March 2017.
INSIDE the 12,000-square-foot, climate-controlled Cohen Community Stage House, Starlight will delight audiences with an indoor series of fun, unconventional and intimate shows. The 2016-17 lineup features:
Girls Only: The Secret Comedy of Women
This original comedic variety show celebrates the honor, truth and humor of being female. Inspired by the earnest and sweetly ridiculous writings the two authors found in their own childhood diaries, this two-woman act blends sketch comedy, improv, audience participation, musical numbers and video. The result is high-spirited, good-natured humor and fun! It’s lovingly intended for females only, and each performance is highly inclusive. In fact, many audience members leave feeling they were truly part of the show!
Sister’s Christmas Catechism
November 26-December 18
You’ll think you’re watching an episode of “CSI: Bethlehem” when Sister takes on the mystery that has long perplexed historians: What ever happened to the Magi’s Gold? (We assume Mary must have used the frankincense and myrrh as a potpourri – they were in a barn after all!) In this holiday mystery extravaganza, Sister retells the story of the nativity as only she can. Employing her own scientific tools, assisted by our own Starlight STARS of Tomorrow youth choir and a gaggle of audience members, Sister creates a living nativity you won’t soon forget. This show is sure to become your new holiday tradition!
February 3-26, 2017
When blind-date “newbie” Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy restaurant quickly turns into a hilarious, high-stakes dinner. As their first date unfolds in real time, the couple soon finds they are not alone! In a delightful and unexpected twist, Aaron and Casey’s inner critics take on a life of their own. Restaurant staff transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents who sing and dance the couple through ice breakers, appetizers and conversational land mines. Can this potential dating disaster turn into something special before the check arrives?!
March 7-18, 2017
Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Charming princes. Who needs ‘em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses! In a hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm, your fairytale heroines come back to life to set the record straight. By tossing off their tiaras and serving up a sassy, subversive musical, these royal renegades have sold out multiple venues nationwide.
