OFC's Broadway in Brighton Series Presents
The Boy From Oz

Music and Lyrics by Peter Allen. Book by Martin Sherman and Nick Enright

Performances September 12-29, 2024 at the OFC Creations Theatre Center Main Stage; Appropriate for ages 13 & up

 

Starring Blake McIver Ewing as Peter Allen (Full House, The Little Rascals)

and Marcia Mitzman Gaven* as Judy Garland (Tony Award Nominee, Original Broadway Casts: The Who's Tommy and Chess)

Upstate New York Regional Premiere! It’s time to shake the maracas and dust off your dancing shoes as The Boy from Oz tells the dazzling, funny, and heartbreaking true story of singer songwriter Peter Allen. From humble beginnings growing up singing in country pubs throughout the Australian outback, Peter’s career took off without warning after being discovered and taken under the mentorship of, the one and only, Judy Garland. As her opening act, Peter relocated to New York City and quickly introduced to Judy’s daughter and future wife, Liza Minnelli.


Peter Allen rose to international stardom in the 1980s, best known for his hits including ‘I Honestly Love You,’ ‘Best That You Can Do,’ ‘Not The Boy Next Door,’ ‘Everything Old Is New Again,’ and the showstopping, ‘I Go to Rio.’ From winning an Oscar, to selling out performances in Radio City Music Hall, and receiving adulation when he returned to Australia, Peter struggled through divorce, heartbreak, failure, and navigating through the unknowns of the AIDS epidemic.

Starring Blake McIver Ewing as Peter Allen 

Blake’s vast experience in the entertainment industry is derived from multiple disciplines, from film and television to live theatre and the recording studio.  Blake has succeeded professionally as an actor, writer, director, producer and recording artist.

 

Performing on network television at age six, Blake won the title of ’92 Jr. Vocalist Champion on the original Star Search.  His starring roles on hit series such as “Full House” and “Hey Arnold” led to feature films including “The Little Rascals” and gave him the opportunity to work with Steven Spielberg and Penelope Spheeris.

 

Blake has worked as a recording artist and session singer on soundtracks and albums for Phil Collins, Natalie Cole, Barry Manilow, Michael Jackson, David Foster, John Williams, James Horner, Jon Secada, and Sheena Easton as well as writing and co-producing his own solo album “The Time Manipulator.”

While managing his own theatre company, YMTA, Blake directed a production of Elton John and Tim Rice’s “Aida” at the Thousand Oaks Performing Arts Center and produced the critically acclaimed intimate theatrical premiere production of “The Light in the Piazza” at the El Portal Theatre.

 

Blake recently directed and choreographed a US tour for international cabaret superstar Ariana Savalas and two off Broadway productions for Ru Paul’s Drag Race Season 12 breakout star Jackie Cox. He also spent 4 seasons as a series regular on BRAVO’s hit social commentary show “The People’s Couch.”

Starring Marcia Mitzman Gaven as Judy Garland

Marcia received a TONY Award nomination for her performance as Mrs. Walker in the Broadway smash "TOMMY” directed by Des McAnuff and was praised by music critics for her "show stopping performance" on the Grammy winning original cast recording.

Off -Broadway credits include Audrey in "LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS" by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman.

At Lincoln Center she was mentored by opera diva Beverly Sills who recruited Marcia to star in several New York City Opera productions in their Broadway Show Series. Marcia won critical raves as Nellie in "SOUTH PACIFIC", Meg in "BRIGADOON" opposite Tony Roberts, and Mrs. Lovett in "SWEENY TODD" for Harold Prince.

Marcia is known by Los Angeles audiences for her starring role as Mother in the American premiere of “RAGTIME”, for which she won the Ovation Award for Best Lead Actress, and starred opposite Roger Rees, as Abigail Adams in “1776” at Reprise! Also in Los Angeles, Marcia won the Ovation award and L.A. Drama Critics Circle award for Best Lead Actress as Florence in "CHESS". She was Countess Charlotte in “A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC” at the Doolittle Theatre and created the role of Mrs. Walker in La Jolla Playhouse’s hit "THE WHO'S TOMMY” before re-creating the role on Broadway.

OFC-WestSideStory-1760x660.jpg

OFC's Broadway in Brighton Series Presents
West Side Story

Based on a conception of Jerome Robbins

Book by Arthur Laurents; Music by Leonard Bernstein; Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Entire Original Production Directed and Choreographed by Jerome Robbins

Performances October 10-27, 2024 at the OFC Creations Theatre Center Main Stage; Appropriate for ages 13 & up

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the greatest love stories ever told. This Tony and Oscar Award winning masterpiece has become a timeless classic and landmark musical for audiences across the globe.

Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to the vibrant battleground of New York City’s West Side in the 1950s as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time. Unforgettable musical numbers include ‘Tonight,’ ‘Something’s Coming,’ ‘America,’ ‘One Hand, One Heart,’ and equally mesmerizing choreography to ‘Mambo,’ ‘Cool,’ and ‘The Rumble.’

 

West Side Story changed the face of musical theatre forever when it debuted on the Great White Way in 1957, the lyrics "There's a place for us, somewhere a place for us..." couldn't resonate any louder than it does today, hailed as an “indisputable, boundary-busting masterpiece” (The New York Times).

Based on the DreamWorks Animation Film

Performances December 5-29, 2024 at the OFC Creations Theatre Center Main Stage; Appropriate for all ages

Experience the epic emotion, soaring music and breathtaking dance of The Prince of Egypt, a brand new musical with music and lyrics by Grammy and Oscar winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked), a book by Philip LaZebnik (Disney’s Mulan and Pocahontas), and ten new songs written by Schwartz, together with five of his songs from the adored DreamWorks Animation film. Acclaimed as “one of the greatest animated films of all time” (Evening Standard) and “a brilliant film” (The Guardian), it remains one of the most beloved animated feature films of all time.

Journey to Ancient Egypt, where a mother’s love leads one woman to send her child into the Nile River's unknown, and another woman to hide the truth about where he came from. The saga of Moses and his brother Ramses, two young men raised together as brothers in a kingdom of privilege, find themselves suddenly divided by a secret past. One must rule as Pharaoh, the other exiled, finally returning to his home and fighting to free his people from the bonds of slavery. From the plagues of Egypt to parting the red seas, this is a story that will change everything, forever. Featuring a soaring score by Schwartz, including ‘All I Ever Wanted,’ ‘Through Heaven's Eyes,’ ‘Footprints on the Sand,’ ‘Deliver Us,’ and, the Academy Award winning song, ‘When You Believe.’

“This ‘Prince’ is the new king of musicals. An event to dazzle, musical theatre doesn’t come bigger than this.”

Performances April 3-19, 2025 at the OFC Creations Theatre Center Main Stage; Appropriate for ages 13 & up

 

Packed with music, dance, and laughs, Anything Goes sets its sails regarded as delightful, delicious, and de-lovely. Cole Porter’s saucy and splendid classic musical has a whole new flair in this updated version for modern audiences.
 

As the S.S. American heads out to sea, two unlikely pairs set off on the course to find true love, proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of tap dancing sailors, exotic disguises, and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this hilariously bumpy ride are some of musical theatre’s most memorable hits, including ‘I Get a Kick out of You,’ ‘You’re The Top,’ ‘It’s De-Lovely,’ and of course, ‘Anything Goes.’

“Anything Goes exists to put a daffy grin on your face... if you’re looking for sheer escape, this is your ticket!”  The Washington Post

Under the direction of Eric Vaughn Johnson, featuring a cast of professional performers from across the country. This version of ANYTHING GOES was adapted from the 1987 Broadway revival, originally produced by Lincoln Center Theater. ANYTHING GOES is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Tams-Witmark LLC. www.concordtheatricals.com
