Song-Poems Wanted! The Musical

Song-Poems Wanted! The Musical is an original musical that explores the hopes and dreams of the poets and the musicians whose lives are connected through the fictional "Star Records" through the wacky and sometimes touching art of Song-Poems.

 

The score incorporates actual Song-Poems with lyrics written by everyday, ordinary people, along with exclusive material written by composer Art Kaufman, and lyricists Hellen Bates & Larry Carpenter.  It's all tied together through Carpenter's light-hearted and imaginative book.

 

Off-Strip Productions is proud and excited to premiere a brand new version of Song-Poems Wanted! right here in Las Vegas at the Onyx Theatre.  Come support original art in our community and give us feedback on what you see.  Be a part of the creative process!

 

Song Poems Wanted! features dozens of songs, lots of laughs and a big heart.  Don't miss this opportunity!

MOTHERFUPPETS

Fuppetland, a world where puppets and humans coexist , provides a perfect atmosphere for puppets to express their....No, no it doesn’t. IT’S NOT A F#*%ING PUPPET SHOW!

 

But you can expect video game parodies, movement pieces, the Dickhands family, news, animal people, commercials, puppet mutilation/porn, and live bands.

 

"SNL on acid!" ~ Las Vegas Weekly

 

"Motherfuppets is a risky improv / sketch comedy show that includes liberal doses of absurdism, screaming, physical violence, and general mayhem. Which is to say it’s very good. I haven’t experienced something this left-of-center since living in an illegal artist warehouse in Baltimore-- can’t push this much further without breaking laws.” ~ Artsvegas.com

The Telephone/The Human Voice

Sin City Opera is proud to once again be teaming up with Off-Strip Productions for its 6th engagement at the Onyx Theatre, where we will present two operas, Gian Carlo Menotti's The Telephone and a brand-new English translation of Francis Poulenc's The Human Voice (La Voix Humaine).

 

The two works focus on women at extreme moments of their relationships.  One is at the beginning, afraid to say hello.  The other is at the end and afraid to say goodbye.  Each woman has one tool in common to help them make their journey: a telephone.  The two stories will explore the themes of the telephone as a distraction, a shield, a weapon, and ultimately as an extension of our very selves, the ways we really talk—and don't talk—to those we love.

 

Joining us on stage will be three of Las Vegas' most brilliant opera voices, Marcie Ley, Athena Mertes, and Nathan Van Arsdale.  This SCO production will be uniquely staged; the two works will be completely interwoven, one in color and the other in black and white.  Everyone from opera newbies to seasoned lovers of these two works should be sure not to miss this lush and provocative dual production as it’s never been presented before.

 

A portion of the proceeds from this production will be donated to Variety - The Children's Charity of Southern Nevada.    www.varietysn.org

 

Please visit us at www.sincityopera.com or become a fan of Sin City Opera on Facebook to learn more details about our upcoming works and how you can support our efforts or become involved.

THE MOST FAMOUS COMEDY EVER WRITTEN,

OSCAR WILDE’S “THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST”

OPENS AT THE INTIMATE ONYX THEATRE IN MAY

OFF-STRIP’s Artistic Director Brandon Burk will direct what Wilde dubbed his “Trivial comedy for serious people.”

 

Gwendolen loves Ernest, and he loves her. Cecily loves Ernest too, though he’s only just finding that out. But is it a lover’s triangle, or is there room for two happy couples in Oscar Wilde’s madcap romance – and what will fearsome Lady Bracknell have to say about it? This quintessential comedy of proper manners, by the quintessential bad boy of his day, includes mislaid babies, mistaken identities, secret engagements, baffled suitors, and some of the wittiest wordplay ever volleyed over cucumber sandwiches.

 

Burk is returning to the director’s chair after a 16 month hiatus.  His sold-out production of "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," which opened in 2012 and was revived by popular demand in 2013, received widespread acclaim.

 

The cast includes applauded local performers:

Abby Dandy

Sue McNulty

David McKee

Sandy Stein

The all-star list of Designer’s Include:

David Sankuer - Set

Isaiah Hiram Urrabazo - Costumes

Jake Copenhaver - Lighting

Sandy Stein - Sound

 

The Importance of Being Earnest celebrates its opening weekend  Friday, May 23rd, and Saturday, May 24th at 8pm.

The run continues May 29th-31st and June 5th-7th at 8pm, with matinees on June 1st and 8th at 2pm at the Onyx Theatre.

 

Tickets are only $20 for regular admission and $15 for Students, Seniors, and Military.

David de Alba Presents

A Lonely Stage, My Tribute to Judy Garland

San Francisco's Finocchio Club legendary actor, singer-impressionist David de Alba, after last year's sold out performance that gave him a standing ovation and many flowers for his "Dorothy The Later Years Judy Garland Tribute" returns to The Onyx Theater stage on June 22, 2014 (a very poignant date because Miss Garland passed away on that day in 1969) bringing his very unique tribute to the late Star in: "David de Alba Presents.....A Lonely Stage, My Tribute to Judy Garland".

 

Mr. de Alba has been written about in six books and has received many awards for his LIVE stage presentations.  He has also been a respected Celebrity Interviewer for the past 15 years.  These rare interviews are published on his theatrical website, david-de-alba.com.

 

Anyone who is a true Judy Garland fan, or just someone who appreciates the Art Form of LIVE Female Impersonation should not miss Mr. de Alba's performance celebrating Judy's musical career by way of the accurate impersonation that he achieves due to his respect and love for the late Star.
