The Cherry Artists’ Collective, Ithaca’s company for “radically local, radically global and formally innovative” theater, is proud to announce our 2019-20 season of productions.

For tickets and membership, go to www.thecherry.org!

September 26–October 6, we kick off our season with The Shoe by Québec playwright David Paquet. Paquet is a recipient of the Governor General’s Award for Drama and the Prix Michel Tremblay, and The Shoe is his newest play. To be produced at the Cherry for the first time in English, The Shoe is an emotionally profound and very funny work about the world of an unusual young boy named Benoît and the adults who care for him. The production will feature Emma Bowers, Godfrey Simmons, and Sylvie Yntema.

October 25–November 3, the Cherry presents Listen to Her, a mini-festival of three solo shows for women. Asylum, written and performed by Elizabeth Mozer, focuses on the lives of patients at the now-deserted psychiatric hospital in Binghamton known as “The Castle.” The beloved classic about Emily Dickinson, The Belle of Amherst, will be performed by Kathleen Mulligan in a reimagining by director Norm Johnson. Finally, the English-language premiere of The Saint brings the work of Santiago Loza back to the Cherry stage. The Saint will star Jennifer Herzog under the direction of Amina Omari. Over two thrilling weekends, Listen To Her will fully encompass the Cherry Collective mission: radically local, radically global, formally innovative. Use the code "festival20" to receive 20% off your ticket purchase to multiple productions within the festival!

February 20–March 1 the Cherry débuts The Other Side of the Sea, winner of the Casa de las Americas award for Drama, by Salvadoran writer Jorgelina Cerritos. This lyrical, humorous and powerful play explores the pressing issue of “documentation” from a thought-provoking perspective. The Cherry Collective is thrilled to produce the award-winning play for the first time in English, featuring Ithaca favorite Susannah Berryman.

Rounding out the season, April 9–18 the Cherry presents Rosa and Blanca by Rebekka Kricheldorf, author of last season’s smash hit Testosterone. Like Testosterone, Rosa and Blanca is adapted from a Grimm fairy tale, telling the story of two vivacious sisters who tire of civilization and embark into the woods to make a life among the animals. Kricheldorff’s trademark anarchic humor and deep intelligence are once again on display in Rosa and Blanca, one of her internationally most-produced plays, seen here for the first time in an English-language professional production.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET! Aug 28 - Sept 13. Call 800-427-6160 for tickets. Inspired by an actual event. Johnny Cash. Elvis Presley. Jerry Lee Lewis. Carl Perkins. Four legends. One night! On December 4, 1956, an extraordinary twist of fate brought these four young musicians together at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. That incredible night comes to life with an irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets, betrayal and celebrations that is both poignant and funny. This smash-hit musical features an incredible score of rock ‘n’ roll, gospel, R&B and country hits including "Blue Suede Shoes", "Great Balls of Fire", "Walk the Line", "Sixteen Tons", "Folsom Prison Blues", "Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On", "Hound Dog", and more!

The Return of Opera Cowpokes Alive - 20th Anniversary!
Opera Stars Sing Classic Western and Country Western Songs
August 1-4 at 7 PM
CRS Barn Studio

Advance tickets available at Brown Paper Tickets:
https://operacowpokes.brownpapertickets.com/

Whoa, there! Can it be true? The Opera Cowpokes are back in town, with that special blend of music, dance, horseplay, cowboy poetry, and lost (and found) love. Triphammer Arts proudly presents Opera Cowpokes Alive!, a multi-genre musical extravaganza, with performances Thursday through Sunday, August 1-4 at 7:00pm at the CRS Barn Studio, 2622 N. Triphammer Road, Ithaca.

Opera Cowpokes Alive! features opera stars performing western and country/western songs, traditional folk songs (many with new, topical lyrics), and favorite opera choruses, all tied together with a humorous original script. This unique production breaks down the barriers between "classical" and "popular" performance and bring together an impressive collection of musicians and dancers from both worlds in Opera Cowpokes Alive! You'll enjoy tunes from Grand Opera to Grand Ol' Opry, including perennial favorites like “Cool Water” and “Ragtime Cowboy Joe” accompanied by a dynamic Western swing band and cowgirl dancers.

Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, this family and cult favorite welcomes well-known Ithaca musicians, new guest artists, and many alumni of the original production from across the US to its original setting, overlooking Cayuga Lake. The expansive outdoor performance space, with its stunning view of Cayuga Lake sunsets and the rustic wooden backdrop of the barn, provides a picturesque setting and the perfect informal atmosphere for this music.

Here’s what people are saying about Opera Cowpokes Alive! "You blew my socks off - boots and all!" "We had a rip-roar'n, dirt-kick'n time!" "I've never considered myself either a country or a western fan, but was mighty taken by [your] renditions.... It's a fun change from lust, vengeance, dying consumptives and so on."

Opera Cowpokes ALIVE! is conceived and coordinated by Steven Stull and Jeanne Goddard, with Peter Chwazik, music director. Other performers include: singers Dan Bates, Natasha Bratkovski, Timothy LeFebvre, Nathan McEwen, David Neal, Phyllis Pancella, Benno Ressa, Peter Sicilian, Ivy Walz, Alison Wahl; instrumentalists Harry Aceto (bass), Max Buckholtz (fiddle/mandolin), Dave Davies (guitar), Rick Manning (fiddle/mandolin), Doug Robinson (guitar), John White (piano).

So, grab your boots, hang on to your hat, and bring the entire family as Lucia di Lammermoor meets Lucille in Opera Cowpokes Alive!

In case of rain, the performance will be held under our new tent at the same location. Tickets are $30 general admission, $28 seniors, $15 students, and free for children under 12. They are available from Brown Paper Tickets or at the door. For more information, please contact the CRS Barn Studio at 607-257-2043 or email or visit http://www.triphammer.org.

Opera Cowpokes Alive! is made possible with grants from the Tompkins County Tourism Program, the Savage Club of Ithaca, Flair Strategic Communication, and with the support of the Tompkins Trust Company.

July 13, 19 & 20 at 10:00 AM at the Little York Pavilion. $8.00 per person. All those classic wonderful Milne characters – Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga and Roo, Owl, Rabbit, and Christopher Robin - are included in this loving stage adaptation of the second Winnie-the-Pooh book!

Christopher Robin has called a "Mergency Meeting” because he is being sent to Education! Nobody knows exactly what or where that is, but he’d much rather run away with his friends…probably to the North Pole. Or maybe the South Pole. But more unfortunate events arise – Eeyore has lost his house and according to his gloomy forecast, a blizzard is coming. Then there is the "problem of Tigger," who is just too bouncy by far! As the situations become clearer, Christopher Robin isn't quite so sure that running away is the answer.
