Winner of 7 Tony Awards including Best Play, Amadeus explodes with musical masterpieces and richness of language, harkening back to times of excess and indulgence. Called “triumphant” by The New York Times, this Renaissance drama takes us back to 18th-Century Europe and the tumultuous rivalry between Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri. Falsely befriending Mozart, the jealous and power-hungry Salieri hopes to socially and politically ruin his opponent and inhibit Mozart’s legacy. Jim Petosa (who directed New Rep’s Three Viewings, The Last Five Years, and Opus) directs this engaging drama, in which Salieri questions God for unfairly favoring Mozart.

Sideways Stories from Wayside School

Wayside School was accidentally built sideways. It was supposed to be
only one story high, with thirty classrooms all in a row. Instead, it
is thirty stories high, with one classroom on each story! Maybe that's
why all kinds of funny things happened at Wayside - especially on the
thirtieth floor! An ensemble cast of 3rd-5th graders brings this
childhood favorite to life. General admission tickets are $10 and
will be available beginning April 30th through WCT’s website at www.watertownchildrenstheatre.org or by calling 1-800-838-3006. For
more information, visit WCT's website or call 617-926-ARTS.

Faerie Tales is a pair of one-act musicals set in the "land of faerie," the fictional setting of all traditional fairy tales from days of yore. Act 1 is "Goblin Market" - based on the original Victorian-era poem by Christina Rossetti, and Act 2 is the World Premiere of "The Rag Doll" - written as a companion piece to "Goblin Market," and loosely based on the Grimm's Fairy Tale "The Goose Girl at the Spring."
