2018-19 SEASON



Ain't Misbehavin' AWARD WINNING ADULT TROUPE – COMMUNITY THEATER OF THE RIVERTOWNS


AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’
SEPTEMBER 15, 2018 at 7:30pm
 “A boozy, after hours party, and we’re all invited.” — Huffington Post
Kick off Clocktower Players 2018-19 Season with AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' - one of the most popular, well-crafted revues of all time. Winner of the 1978 Tony Award for Best Musical, this is a musical tribute to the black musicians of the 1920s and 1930s who were part of the Harlem Renaissance, an era of growing creativity, cultural awareness, and ethnic pride.
It was a time when Manhattan nightclubs like the Cotton Club and the Savoy Ballroom were the playgrounds of high society and Lenox Avenue dives were filled with piano players banging out the new beat known as swing. Five performers present an evening of rowdy, raunchy, and humorous songs that encapsulate the various moods of the era and reflect the inimitable "Fats" Waller’s view of life as a journey meant for pleasure and play.
The intoxicating music will delight and energize audiences and provide great insight into a vibrant time in American history and music. Don’t miss it!

Award Winning Adult Troupe, THE LARAMIE PROJECT


THE LARAMIE PROJECT
Everyone Carries A Piece of the Truth
Twenty years ago, on October 7, 1998, Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old student at the University of Wyoming, was brutally attacked and tied to a fence in a field outside of Laramie, Wyoming and left to die. On October 12, Matt succumbed to his wounds in a hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado. That November, ten New Yorkers set out for Laramie to explore a town and the crime that occurred there. After interviewing more than 200 residents, they created a deeply moving play about bigotry and tolerance, fear and courage, hate and hope – THE LARAMIE PROJECT.

Written by MOISÉS KAUFMAN and members of the Tectonic Theater Project

Directed by GEORGE H. CROOM Produced by CAGLE McDONALD

A percentage of the profits of this production will be donated to The Matthew Shepard Foundation: ERASING HATE through understanding, compassion and acceptance.
The horrific events that took place shortly after midnight on October 7, 1998 would become one of the most notorious anti-gay hate crimes in American history and spawned an activist movement that, more than a decade later, would result in passage of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, a federal law against bias crimes directed at lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people.
The life and death of Matthew Shepard changed the way we talk about, and deal with, hate in America. Since his death, Matt’s legacy has challenged and inspired millions of individuals to erase hate in all its forms. Although Matt’s life was short, his story continues to have a great impact on young and old alike.  His legacy lives on in thousands of people who actively fight to erase hate with understanding, compassion, and acceptance.
