2015-2016 Matinee Performances

Thursday, October 29, 2015 at 10am
Campus Center Theatre
100 W. Home St.
(the performance runs approximately two and a half hours in length)

Claudio loves Hero and Hero loves Claudio and nothing seems capable of keeping them apart. Claudio’s friend Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice loves Benedick, but (because neither will admit it) nothing seems capable of bringing them together. Driven along by a romance all the more charming for being in denial, Much Ado About Nothing is a miracle of comic and dramatic suspense and gives us, in the bantering Beatrice and Benedick, one of Shakespeare’s wittiest, most lovable pair of lovers.

Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at 10am
Fritsche Theatre at Cowan Hall
30 S. Grove St.
(the performance runs approximately three hours in length)

John Stefano, Chair of the Otterbein University Department of Theatre and Dance, will take the stage in the lead role of Tevye in the final production of the 2015-16 season. Winner of 9 TONY Awards when it debuted in 1964, Fiddler On The Roof has been touching audiences worldwide with its humor, warmth and honesty and has become a staple of the musical theatre canon. Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler On The Roof’s universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, sadness, and joy.
