◀ The 2013 – 2014 Season

Showboat

Plot Synopsis

Moving from 1890s Mississippi to Chicago; traveling into the Roaring ‘20’s Broadway, Show Boat follows the lives of a company of theater folk — deeply involving us in their triumphs and sorrows, while illuminating the racial and social changes that were shaping the country.

You’ll love every character: Julie, Joe, Queenie … and especially Magnolia and Ravenal. She’s an aspiring young actress; he’s an irresistible, gambling cad who leaves her when his luck runs out. But Magnolia moves on with her life — eventually becoming a major star.  

Unforgettable songs include “Make Believe,” “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man” and “Ol’ Man River.” With dazzling choreography and an epic story that moves us with its humanity, Show Boat is both great entertainment and great art.
