The Regional Premier of the2015 multiple Tony Award WinnerFUN HOMEcoming to the Pandora Productions’stage in November
Pandora Productions, Louisville’s only theatre company dedicated and most trusted to tell the stories of the LGBTQ community, is pleased to announce the regional premier of the Tony award winning musical Fun Home. Composed by Jeanine Tesori with book and lyrics by Lisa Kron is the adaptation of the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel which chronicles her relationship with her father Bruce.
This groundbreaking coming-of-age story introduces us to lesbian author Alison Bechdel at three different ages. From her youth, to her years at Oberlin College, and finally to the present, Alison, now grown, is struggling to write her own graphic autobiography. We watch her as she watches memories reveal themselves of her uniquely dysfunctional family and her father’s self-loathing consume him. Alison slowly recognizes her own experience of discovering, and ultimately embracing, her own identity.
The production, sponsored by The Mawood Mercier Group, will be presented at the Henry Clay Theatre in the historic Henry Clay building located at 604 South Third Street, 3rd Floor, Downtown Louisville and is being directed by the company’s Artistic Director, Michael J. Drury. It stars Mandi Elkins Hutchins, Jordan Price, Hannegan Roseberry, Erin Jump, Michael Detmer, Keegan Conner, Finnegan Broyles with the role of Small Alison being shared by Carmen Tate and Molly Dauk. The production will run November 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 at 7:30 p.m.; November 17 at 5:30 p.m. with the only matinee on November 10 at 2:30 p.m. Advanced tickets are $22 and are available online at PandoraProds.org or by calling 502.216.5502.

Chase Winemiller is only 17, but has been studying the viola for much of her life, and now has the opportunity to take her education overseas. She has started a GoFundMe fundraiser, among many other things, to save up for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
"I’ve been nominated to go on the 2020 Kentucky Ambassadors tour of Europe,"shares Winemiller. "It includes a four-day camp at U of L, a 16-day tour of seven countries (England, France, Italy, Germany, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, and Austria) and an optional three-day extension to Athens, Greece. I’ll be performing in historical cathedrals and theaters around Europe with the orchestra, band, and choir of students around Kentucky. This experience would better me as a player and as a well rounded, and informed person."

Kentucky Shakespeare and Louisville Public Media team up again to present a live radio play in the LMP performance studio. The same creative team that brought you last year's popular THE WAR OF THE WORLDS is back with a unique take on the cult classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.
The 1968 film NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, which has been called the grandfather of the modern zombie film, tells the story of seven people trapped in a rural farmhouse in western Pennsylvania, alternately hiding from and fighting a large and growing group of living dead ghouls. The story has been remade and retold many times, including a 1988 radio drama.
Kentucky Shakespeare's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD will feature performances by audience favorites including Dathan Hooper, Jon Huffman, Abigail Maupin, Gregory Maupin and the vocal and Foley sound stylings of Laura Ellis.
Tickets can be purchased here.
