LAMPLIGHTER’S THEATRE COMPANY REPRISES MAN OF LaMANCHA FOR ITS 2012-2013 SEASON OPENER
Smyrna, Tennessee-based Lamplighter’s Theatre Company’s presented Man of LaMancha for its very first major musical in 2005. The show met with enthusiastic applause, prompting one theater-goer to respond, “The impossible dream is seeing community theatre this good!”
Seven years later, Lamplighter’s Theatre Company opens its 2012-13 A Journey of Discovery season with the return of the beloved musical. Roonie Meek and Nathan Owen are back to reprise their 2005 roles as Don Quixote and Sancho Panza respectively, and veteran director Greg Wilson is back to helm the production once more.
In 2005 our audience was only starting to discover Lamplighter’s Theatre,” Wilson mused. “Those who were there are delighted at the prospect of seeing Man of LaMancha again. Some of the most moving and powerful music ever written for the American stage combines with the timeless wit and inspiration of the story of Don Quixote to create an unforgettable evening at the theatre.”
Man of LaMancha runs September 7, 8, 9, 14, 15 &16, 2012.
This show contains mature themes revolving around the excesses of the Spanish Inquisition. Parents may wish to consider whether young children should attend.
