RED

November 13th, 2014 - November 16th, 2014

RED

Presented as a WCP collaboration with Fourth Room Theatre, the UNI Department of Art and Theatre UNI. Red is the startling portrait of the famous abstract expressionist painter, Mark Rothko’s two-year struggle to complete the most high-priced commission in the history of modern art, and his charged relationship with young assistant, Ken, who challenges both him and the course of art history. Set in the rapidly-shifting cultural current of early 1960s New York, Red is the provocative depiction of a luminary artist at the height of his powers. UNI acting professor Richard Glockner portrays Rothko and Iowa City actor, Matthew James, is Ken. Angie Toomsen directs, with stage design by Scott Olinger.

SNOW WHITE

Presented by the Black Hawk Children's Theatre as part of the Golden Season of Escapades: Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? Well, we all know the answer will not be good in this fairy tale classic as the vain and wicked Queen seeks to destroy her rival in beauty. Snow White escapes to find seven dwarfs whose personalities run the gamut from obstinate to generous, mean to kind. They are all, however, totally appealing. The Prince is a true Prince, sometimes foolish, always brave, and Snow White is as lovely and lovable as legend says. #EscapeWithBHCT Produced by John Deere and Life 101.9

A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED

March 20th, 2015 - March 27th, 2015

A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED

Presented by the Waterloo Community Playhouse. The announcement in the local paper states time and place of a murder to occur in Miss Blacklocks’ Victorian house. The victim is not one of several occupants, temporary and permanent, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns, and Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution – at some risk to herself – in a dramatic confrontation scene just before the final curtain. #EngageWithWCP Media Sponsor: Cruisin' 1250
