Opera House Theatre Company
The Third Act Players
Showstoppers, a loosely staged musical and theatrical revue, is the debut performance by The Third Act Players, a new arm of Opera House Theatre Company. The Third Act Players is a group made up of performers who are all over the age of 50, and the performance itself will consist of musical numbers, dance numbers, and theatrical pieces. The show will feature hits from Mame, Hello Dolly!, Fiddler, Man of La Mancha, Les Miserables, and Phantom of the Opera, and will also have group numbers like ‘Cell Block Tango’ from Chicago and ‘Seasons of Love’ from Rent. The show will also have non-musical aspects with various monologues pulled from the popular Spoon River Anthologies and will also have a “Fashion Show of the Decades” featuring 10 women and 10 fashion pieces from 10 decades—from the 20s to 2010. Directed by Ray Kennedy, Tina Leak, and Jason Aycock, and Music Directed by Bradford Olson, Showstoppers will be performed on the Mainstage of Thalian Hall October 20, 2019 at 6 pm. Tickets are $15 and are now available through the Thalian Hall Box Office, or online at thalianhall.org!
