Take in a Little Theatre

August 18th, 2015 by David Jones

wasat_Theatre_MasksYou can take in two terrific performances here on Amelia Island in the next two weeks.  The Amelia Island Musical Playhouse is featuring the show “Gypsy” on the weekends of August 21st and 28th as well as Sunday matinees.  The award-winning performance is about the story of an ultimate stage mother.  Join Rose, June and Louise in their trip across the United States during the 1920s when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born.  Jule Styne’s music and Stephen Sondheim’s lyrics include “Let Me Entertain You,” “All I Need is the Girl,” “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” and more!  The Amelia Community Theatre (ACT) is presenting “I Love You You’re Perfect Now Change” the same weekends.  This small-cast musical comedy is a celebration of the mating game — what it involves and what it may lead to: dating, love, marriage, in-laws, and children. Presented in a revue style, it pays tribute to those who have found the courage to ask, “What are you doing on Saturday night?”  Plan a weekend to stay at the Blue Heron Inn while taking in either one of these great performances!  For more information you can visit ameliamusicalplayhouse.com or ameliacommunitytheater.com

 

Love and Play Package

February 2nd, 2013 by David Jones

You Have My Heart, Sweet Valentine LoveLove romantic comedies?  If so, you won’t want to miss Almost, Maine, a hilarious yet touching celebration of love at the Amelia Community Theatre throughout February.  Set in the mythical town of Almost, Maine, this play, with its large cast of 19, presents nine different stories of couples who fall in and out of love in unexpected and surprising ways, all on the same cold, clear, moonless night.  Lead director Geoffrey King, enjoyed being able to show a slice from so many different relationships, each dealing with different characters and different circumstances.  You’ll meet “love-lost, love-found, love-rediscovered, and love-appreciated.”  A quirky part of the play involves a woman demanding that her boyfriend “return” all the love she has given him.  In another part, a woman carries her broken, hardened heart around in a sack as she keeps watch for the Northern Lights.  Director Laura Swaim believes everyone can relate to most of the scenarios.  Shows run the weekends of Feb. 7-9, 14-16, and 21-23 and at 2 pm on Sunday, Feb. 17.  The theater is just a few walking blocks from the Blue Heron Inn.  Let us arrange a romantic dinner for you before the show! Come celebrate your special romance with us at the Blue Heron Inn.
