On the Verge
by Eric Overmyer

November 12–15
7:30 pm

Moss Robinson Theatre

$20 adults, $15 seniors, faculty/staff, $6 students

Come along on an expedition, traveling through a wonderland of places and times.

ON THE VERGE is a comedy that tells the story of three Victorian women explorers, each with their own specialty, who set off in 1888 to chart Terra Incognita, an unknown and mysterious land, and unwittingly arrive in 1955 America. With cultural references from the turn of century through the 1950s this witty play is a celebration of feminism, language, history, and pop culture. Rated PG.

Colorado Mesa University, Moss Performing Arts Center, Mesa Experimental Theatre
Venus in Fur
by David Ives

October 30–November 1

Adults $10, Seniors $8, Students & Youth $6

An actress's masterful performance at an audition flips the script on the director's expectations and turns the session into a tango for dominance between actress and director. "Venus in Fur" is a laugh-out-loud study of the politics of sex and power.

Il Divo Colorado

Unitarian Universalist Church, 536 Ouray Ave, Grand Junction, CO
CONCERT ANNOUNCEMENT

Benefit concert presents singing group Il Divo Colorado

Il Divo Colorado, the latest, hottest young male singing group, will be featured in a concert at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 536 Ouray, on Saturday, August 9, at 7:30 pm. The concert is a benefit for domestic violence programs in Grand Junction. Admission to the concert is free, with a suggested donation of $10. All donations are fully tax-deductible. Il Divo will be supported by rising star singer Belle Weathers, virtuoso El Salvadorian violinist Sandra Rivera, and eclectic percussionist Joe Moher. Pianist Kathryn Mientka will accompany the ensemble.

Inspired by the internationally touring group Il Divo and vocal superstar Josh Groban, the program will contain popular songs such as Unchained Melody, My Heart will go on, You Raise me up, Time to say Goodbye, and The Prayer, as well as Gershwin’s beautiful “Summertime” and some hot Celtic fiddling tunes on violin. Beautiful songs and fiery violin playing make this a program everyone will enjoy!

Tenors Mat Coronado and David Siemens and baritone Kyle Thompson of “Il Divo Colorado” have performed extensively in Grand Junction, taking leading roles in operas and musicals at Colorado Mesa University and the High Desert Opera. Soprano Belle Weathers has enjoyed leading roles in opera as well as indulging passionately in jazz singing. Amazing violinist Sandra Rivera switches seamlessly from virtuoso classical violin concertos to jazz, folk, and sizzling, toe-tapping fiddling. Drummer Joe Moher fascinates with his ability to move from orchestral percussion to exotic African and Arabian drums to full-out trap set. Kathryn Mientka, well-known pianist in the area, has toured internationally both as a classical pianist and as keyboard player in the cross-over Celtic band sensation FEAST.

Don’t miss this wonderful concert! Doors open at 7:00, and seating is limited! Call 970-241-4579 for more information.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

Colorado Mesa University, Moss Performing Arts Center, Mesa Expiramental Theatre
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
by Christopher Durang

The 2013 Tony Award Winner for Best Play comes to the Grand Valley! A comedic riff on some of Anton Chekov's most time-tested themes tells the story of step-siblings Vanya and Sonia. Although they have never left the confines of their childhood home—a rambling farmhouse in Bucks County, PA—they have witnessed from afar tie glamorous exploits of their sister, Masha, a famous movie actress. A surprise visit from Masha and her 20-something boy toy, Spike, throws the normally quiet household into utter upheaval as its residents and visitors get swept up in an intoxicating mixture of lust, rivalry, regret, and the sudden possibility of escape. Only one thing is certain: no one will get out of this without looking absolutely ridiculous! (from tonyawards.com)

Eurydice

Colorado Mesa University, Moss Performing Arts Center, Robinson Theater
“Don’t look back.”
This famously unheeded advice has sparked the imaginations of countless artists over the centuries, from poets to choreographers to cinematographers. Pulitzer Prize nominee Sarah Ruhl’s contemporary look at the myth of Orpheus re-tells the story from the perspective of his wife Eurydice, with her descent into Hades where she learns about love and loss, and wrestles with the decision to return to earth with her husband or to stay in Hades with her father. Written by Ruhl after the death of her own father, Eurydice’s poetic style is visually magical and emotionally alluring, providing a fresh look at a timeless story.

Legally Blonde The Musical

Colorado Mesa University, Moss Performing Arts Center, Robinson Theater
A singing, dancing and snapping romantic comedy all about self-discovery, the ridiculously enjoyable Legally Blonde: The Musical is based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the 2001 blockbuster movie starring Reece Witherspoon. California sorority girl Elle Woods determinedly follows her ex-boyfriend to Harvard University in a blaze of pink to win him back with her charms. Along the way she discovers her own intelligence and talents with the help of the apparitions of her Delta Nu sisters, who act as a Greek chorus, her new friends, and of course, her chihuahua Bruiser. Funny and fabulous—case closed.
Rated PG for adult situations and language.

Hay Fever

Colorado Mesa University, Moss Performing Arts Center, Robinson Theater
Noel Coward’s comic play, written in 1924, may be best described as a cross between high farce and a comedy of manners. As a kind of Jazz Age soap opera featuring flamboyancy, extremes and sharp wit, it provides a glimpse into the rapidly changing climate of the 1920s and 30s. In Hay Fever, we visit the English countryside and meet the bohemian Bliss family, with their outlandish amorous adventures. When they each invite a guest to stay for the weekend, hilarity ensues as they continually demonstrate their eccentric behavior until driving their guests to sneak away.
Rated G.
