ABOUT THE SHOW...

Somewhere in America, in a typical suburban restaurant on a typical night, Sam and Nicole first meet.  Sparks fly.  And so begins an expansive tale that traverses five generations of a modern family, from first kiss to final goodbye.  This is a stunning, big-hearted play that spans nearly 80 years.  Packed with humanity and humor and delivered in a unique style,  The Big Meal tells the extraordinary story of an ordinary family using three couples and two children.

 

The Allegany County Area Foundation recently awarded a $850 grant to the Olean Community Theatre. This grant money will be used to help bring the production of THE BIG MEAL to the Palmer Opera House.

ABOUT THE SHOW...

A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines Sondheim's signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic narrative of our nation's culture of celebrity. The story explores the violent means some will use to obtain fame, embodied by America's four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written.

ABOUT THE SHOW...

Three unlikely friends take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can't do, even in a man's world. 9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.

About The Show...

Everyone's favorite practically perfect nanny takes the stage in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure.

One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven TONY Awards, including Best Musical.

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."

About the show...


From one of musical theatre's most exciting new composers comes ORDINARY DAYS, a refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps...but probably should at some point!

ORDINARY DAYS tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love...and cabs. Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences ring startlingly true to life.

An original musical, ORDINARY DAYS is for anyone who's ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. With equal doses of humor and poignancy, it celebrates how 8.5 million individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make New York City such a unique and extraordinary home. 

The Allegany County Area Foundation recently awarded a $500 grant to the Olean Community Theatre. This grant money will be used to help bring the Production of ORDINARY DAYS to the Palmer House.

ABOUT THE SHOW...

Man of La Mancha is a 1964 musical with a book by Dale Wasserman, lyrics by Joe Darion, and music by Mitch Leigh. It is adapted from Wasserman's non-musical 1959 teleplay I, Don Quixote, which was in turn inspired by Miguel de Cervantes and his seventeenth-century masterpiece Don Quixote. It tells the story of the "mad" knight, Don Quixote, as a play within a play, performed by Cervantes and his fellow prisoners as he awaits a hearing with the Spanish Inquisition.

Cervantes presents the play as his defense in a mock trial for the prisoners. In it, he plays Alhonso Quiana, a man who has set his own reality aside and become Don Quixote De La Mancha. Assisted by his "squirem" Sancho Panza, Quixote attempts to avoid his mortal enemy, the Enchanter, and woo the serving wench and prostitute, Aldonza, who he takes to be the lady Dulcinea.
