January 9, 10 & 11 Play On! San Angelo Performing Arts Center: 82 Gillis St.

Play On! is the hilarious story of a community theatre group trying desperately to put on a play called Murder Most Foul, a new “murder mystery play” with the same title as an Agatha Christie novel but with no relation whatsoever. The director/theatre manager, Gerry thought producing the play was a good idea since the inexperienced playwright has agreed to let the company perform the show for no charge. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance, in which anything that can go wrong, does. When the author decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax and a thoroughly hilarious romp. Play On! is a hilarious love letter to community theatre. sanangelopac.org January 18 Freedom Riders Murphy Performance Hall 7:00pm Set in 1961, during the Civil Rights Movement, this musical explores the courageous stories of key personalities during one of the most critical chapters in our history. Freedom Riders demonstrates the importance of working together to affect change through non-violent protest. It is an American story of overcoming hardship through resiliency and the belief that we all have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Let Freedom Sing.
