Open Classical presents The True (Not Exactly True) Story of Thanksgiving

This comic 90 minute one staged act opera by Open Classical Director Mark Landson presents an irreverent take on the Thanksgiving story, to the tune—but not the lyrics—of popular classical masterpieces! Audiences will learn fascinating bits of “history,” such as the pilgrims’ harrowing escape from the Dutch language, their failure to get good cheeseburgers in the New World, and the hilarious misunderstanding that led to the treaty between the settlers and Wampanoag tribe. In addition to a talented eight person cast of classical vocalists, the show will feature a live accompanying chamber group, including Mark Landson, violinist and narrator, pianist-turned-Pilgrim Thiago Nascimento and Open Classical’s famous clarinet-playing turkey, Bent Buemi. The score is a compilation of some of the most famous arias and choruses in classical vocal music, including selections from Orff’s Carmina Burana, Handel’s Messiah, Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Rossini’s Barber of Seville, plus favorites from Verdi and Bizet.

Circle Theatre presents Fellowship!

Once Upon a time two visionaries in Las Angeles had a brilliant idea. The books and movies based on the Lord of the Rings were so popular why not have a bit of fun and write a musical parody of the Fellowship of the Ring? They shared their idea with a composer and a multi-talented cast of actors who then banded together with them to create a cult theater classic, Fellowship! Their merry little musical won numerous big awards and critics’ picks and played to sold-out houses in Los Angeles and New York. Circle is proud to bring its own production of Fellowship! to the "land of cowboys and culture" for its southwest premiere.

Dallas Holocaust Museum presents A History of the Kindertransport: How 10,000 Children Were Rescued

The Kindertransport was a rescue operation that granted safe passage to 10,000 Jewish children caught in the path of Nazi Germany. In most cases, they left parents and siblings behind. The Kindertransport required steadfast determination, expediency, and the balancing acts of numerous individuals and organizations. Examine all the details that had to be nailed down; the numerous transportation schedules to synchronize; the sacrifices of parents to save their children and the selflessness of the people who provided homes for the children. Meet the Upstanders who made what seemed impossible happen at great risk to themselves; meet the parents who were forced to make heart-wrenching decisions; and finally, meet the children who escaped Hitler.
