April 26th- 28th 2019 at Riverside Arts Center in Ypsilanti
Show Synopsis: Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
With an infectiously unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz, Pippin is the story of one young man's journey to be extraordinary. Winner of four 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, this updated circus-inspired version of Pippin continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world.
Horizon Performing Arts is proud to celebrate our 2nd ANNIVERSARY with a UNIQUE play FEATURING two of our founders!
By Nick Payne
May 10th & 11th 2019 at the Biltmore Studio at the Village Theater at Cherry Hill
Show Synopsis: Suppose that life exists in a multiverse -- a set of parallel existences that contain infinitely different futures. The possibilities in our lives are, quite literally, endless. Every possible event that could happen, does happen, in one universe or another. And if two lovers meet -- are drawn together in every version of existence -- every possible happy ending and heartbreak that could befall them, will.
Marianne, a physicist, and Roland, a beekeeper, meet at a party. They hit it off, and go for a drink. Or perhaps they don’t. They go home together, or maybe they go their separate ways. Perhaps Marianne is engaged to someone else, perhaps Roland is. Maybe she breaks his heart, maybe he breaks hers. Perhaps they come together and their love story can finally take root and grow, or perhaps it will be tragically cut short. Nick Payne’s beautiful play, Constellations, explores how even the smallest change in our lives can dramatically alter the course we take. It is a spellbinding exploration of love, science, quantum theory, and infinite possibility for heartbreak or for hope.
MARIANNE- Reilly Conlon
ROLAND- Brandon Waldenmayer
Tickets for Constellations will be available on The Village Theatre at Cherry Hill’s website in early April 2019. Visit our “Tickets” page for a link to their website!
HORIZON performing arts is proud to announce our Summer musical!
A Chorus Line
Book by Nicolas Dante and James Kirkwood Jr.
Music By Marvin Hamlisch Lyrics by Edward Kleban
Directed by Reilly Conlon
August 1st-4th 2019 at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theater in Ann Arbor
Show Synopsis: A CHORUS LINE is a celebration of those unsung heroes of the American Musical Theatre: the chorus dancers– those valiant, over dedicated, underpaid, highly trained performers who back up the star or stars and often make them look even more talented than they are. It is also a celebration of the American Musical itself. A CHORUS LINE is also about competition, and competition might easily be the common denominator that grabs the audience and holds it by the collective heartstrings until the final, ultimate choices are made. For everyone, at one time or another, puts his life on the line. We all compete, no matter what business we’re in, for promotion, for attention, for approval and for love. Specifically, A CHORUS LINE takes the audience through the final grueling audition run by the director, Zach, for a new Broadway musical. Show Synopsis from Tams-Witmark
