I believe in getting more out of life. My time is precious. Every moment counts. That’s why I chose Kaiser Permanente. My doctor is close to home, so when I go for a checkup, I can visit the lab and pharmacy, too—all in one trip. Back home, I can go online and e-mail my doctor, check most lab test results, schedule routine appointments, order most prescription refills, and more.* I can even access these tools on my smartphone. It’s that easy. This way, I have more time to spend on what matters most—life. For more information about Kaiser Permanente, visit us online at kp.org.

*These features are available when you receive care at Kaiser Permanente medical centers. Care from practitioners you see outside our medical centers or the results of tests and screenings performed outside our medical centers may not be available online.

Great Lakes Theater

he mission of Great Lakes Theater, through its main stage productions and its education programs, is to bring the pleasure, power and relevance of classic theater to the widest possible audience. Since the company’s inception in 1962, programming has been rooted in Shakespeare, but Great Lakes commitment to great plays spans the breadth of all cultures, forms of theater and time periods –– including the 20th century –– and provides for the occasional mounting of new works that complement the classical repertoire. Classic theater holds the Great Lakes Theater’s fall 2012 production of The Imaginary Invalid. capacity to illuminate truth and (Photo by Roger Mastroianni) enduring values, celebrate and challenge human nature and actions, revel in eloquent language, preserve the traditions of diverse cultures and generate communal spirit. On its main stage and through its education programs, GLT seeks to create visceral, immediate experiences for participants, asserting theater’s historic role as a vehicle for advancing the common good and helping people make the joyful and meaningful connections between classic plays and their own lives. The company’s commitment to classic theater is magnified in the educational programs that surround its productions.

Margie has just been let go from her dollar store job. Scrambling to make ends meet, she looks up an old flame who’s made it out of South Boston and might just be the break she’s been looking for. This fierce and funny new play was nominated for a 2011 Tony® Award for Best Play.

Claudine meets starving artist Henry and falls head over heels. But her mother, a celebrated tough-talking financial guru, has her doubts. A clever new comedy about women and their relationships with men, mothers and money – and not necessarily in that order.

Much Ado About Nothing By William Shakespeare / Directed by Sharon Ott

A message

Producing Artistic Director

Dear Friends,

O

n behalf of our artists, staff and Board of Trustees, welcome to Great Lakes Theater’s 51st season! Our mission, “to bring the pleasure, power and relevance of classic theater to the widest possible audience,” guides our mainstage productions as well as our educational programming, in the belief that theater holds the capacity to illuminate truth and enduring values, celebrate and challenge human nature and actions, and provide our student audiences a glimpse of a broader world and the wellspring of learning made possible through the arts.

We are thrilled to be back in the Hanna Theatre this spring as our season continues in the new year with Nöel Coward’s otherworldly comedy, Blithe Spirit; Shakespeare’s battle of wits and wooing, Much Ado About Nothing; and our season finale (one of the largest productions Great Lakes Theater has undertaken in years), Guys and Dolls, Frank Loesser’s Tony Award winning musical. It is a joy to work, once again, with Art Falco and Gina Vernaci and the great team at PlayhouseSquare to offer Guys and Dolls as part of the Key Bank Broadway Series. Throughout the spring season, you will see many familiar names and faces from our astonishing core company of artists, educators and technicians joined by artists making their Great Lakes debut. Of particular note are two directors joining us this spring: We are delighted to welcome Sharon Ott (directing Much Ado About Nothing) and Cleveland native Dan Knechtges (director and choreographer of Guys and Dolls) to the Great Lakes family. Sharon is a director of international renown in theater and opera. During her 13 years as Artistic Director of Berkeley Repertory Theater, Sharon built a reputation as one of the leading artists in American theater, and the company won the 1997 Tony Award for best Regional Theatre. Following her tenure at Berkeley Rep, Sharon became the Artistic Director of Seattle Repertory Theater, where she produced and directed both classics and world premieres. Dan is a Tony Award nominated choreographer and director who also happens to be a graduate of Otterbein College. His Broadway credits include The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Sondheim on Sondheim (also seen on our stage last spring), Lysistrata Jones, and Xanadu. In 2007, Dan enjoyed the extraordinary experience of having three shows running simultaneously on the Great White Way. But we could not produce our work without the tireless efforts of our talented administrative staff, dedicated board of trustees and the tremendous generosity of this community! As you look around the theater you will see the names of many friends, partners, corporations and foundations whose support makes all of this possible. We extend our deepest gratitude to each and every one of them and look forward to a future filled with ever more collaboration and creativity. Thank you for your continued support. I hope to see you in our audience again soon.

Service for Our Guests with Special Needs Large type programs and wireless headsets are available in the House Manager’s office.

Camera Policy Cameras, including cameras on cell phones and other personal handheld devices, audio/video tape recorders and flash photography are strictly prohibited.

Emergency Phone Number In emergency situations, family members or babysitters may call 216-771-5537 (evening hours) or 216-771-4444 (day time hours) should they need to get a message to a guest in our theaters.

Cell Phones The experience of a live performance can be ruined by the interruption of ringtones, vibrating phones or conversation. The magic of a darkened theater can be disrupted by the light of someone text messaging as well. Please be considerate to others and remember to turn off your cell phone for the duration of the show.

Thank You
