DESCRIPTION

From the producers of SPAMALOT, DAMN YANKEES and HAIRSPRAY comes this tuneful and touching tale of one family’s struggle to stay together . . . stay fabulous . . . and above all else stay true to themselves. With a rousing score by Jerry Herman and a heartwarmingly hilarious book by Harvey Fierstein, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES has become an indisputable musical comedy classic.

> HIDE  
Presented by Actors' Repertory Theatre of Simi .... An ambivalent Cinderella? A blood-thirsty Little Red Ridinghood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A Witch ... who raps? They're all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim's fractured fairy tale. When a Baker and his Wife learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects ( a cow as white as milk...a cape as red as blood... hair as yellow as corn... a slipper as pure as gold... ) required to break the spell, swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella (with the slipper as pure as gold) Little Red Ridinghood (with a cape as red as blood) Rapunzel (with the hair as yellow as corn) and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk - with the cow as white as milk).
Everyone's wish is granted at the end of Act One but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with disastrous results. A Giant (A female Giant, that is) steps down from the heavens and straight upon some beloved characters. It takes a few lives before the survivors realize that they have to act altogether in order to succeed. Thus, what begins a lively irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.

> VIEW   
> HIDE  
Conceived and originally directed by John Michael Tebelak, with music and new lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, GODSPELL is one of the biggest off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time. This is the revised 2012 version, incorporating some of the changes and updated references used in the 2011-2012 Broadway Production. Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, and featuring a sparkling score by Stephen Schwartz, GODSPELL boasts a string of well-loved songs, led by the international hit, "Day By Day." As the cast performs "Prepare Ye The Way Of The Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All For The Best," "All Good Gifts," "Turn Back, O Man" and "By My Side," the parables of Jesus Christ come humanly and hearteningly to life.
Drawing from various theatrical traditions, such as clowning, pantomime, charades, acrobatics and vaudeville, GODSPELL is a groundbreaking and unique reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love. Godspell plays July 26 - August 31, Fri & Sat at 8 pm and Sunday at 2 pm. Tickets are $25 Adults, $22 Seniors & Students and $18 Children and can be reserved by calling (805) 583-7900.
