Man of LaMancha brings a wide variety of feelings. You will find despair, love, hatred, humor, and most of all, hope. The setting is a dungeon during the Spanish Inquisition. It is stark and dreary, as dungeons tend to be. Hopeless people watch as two new prisoners arrive. With the two comes life, fantasy, dreams and love. The prisoners are given a reprieve from everyday drudgery and dread for a
short time through the fictional character, Don Quixote as he follows his dream to become a knight.
This show features songs, including The Impossible Dream, a timeless favorite of people of all ages and musical preferences. Also, you will see colorful characters entering and exiting the stage and interacting with one another as well as the main characters. Each character brings a new dimension to the play through movement and song.
If you can’t afford a ticket, please be our guest on Thursday, Aug. 10th at 7:30 for our final dress rehearsal. Please bring non perishable items for CARES.
