A SPECIAL EVENT

  • Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017

The 66th Annual Chanticleer Awards

Weathervane's Annual Volunteer-Recognition Event!
The Chanticleer Awards are Weathervane's version of the Tony Awards — but combined with the populist spirit of the People's Choice Awards!

Weathervane's friends and supporters will gather at the Playhouse on Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017, for a very special night to honor the Playhouse's volunteers — both on stage and behind the scenes — for their commitment, time and talents given during the 2016-2017 season.

ALL ABOUT THE 2017 CHANTICLEER AWARDS EVENT

Join us Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017, to honor the talents and contributions of Weathervane Playhouse's volunteers both on stage and behind the scenes.

Voting for the Chanticleer Awards has ended — so you will have to join us on Aug. 19 to learn who will be among our Top 25 Volunteers for the season and to see who will take home the Chanticleer Awards (for such categories as best actor and best actress plus awards for technical designs, too).

The Evening's Timeline

6:30 p.m. Appetizers
Enjoy delicious appetizers donated by our friends at Pub Bricco. We will also have a cash bar open for beer and wine sales; bottled water and soft drinks are free.

7:30 p.m. The Program Begins
Join us in the Founders Theater (open seating) for the program.
We'll present short scenes and song selections from shows that graced our stage during the past season, and Chanticleer Awards will be presented to the performers and designers who worked on these productions.
We'll also salute our Top 25 Volunteers.

After the Program
Join us in the lobby for dessert and coffee

"It's Only a Play" — Aug. 31 to Sept. 17, 2017

"It's Only a Play"
A comedy by Terrence McNally
Directed by Fred Gloor

There's no people like show people in this hilarious comedy about the behind-the-scenes hijinks surrounding the opening of a Broadway play.

It's the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, and wealthy theatrical producer Julia Budder is throwing a lavish party in her equally lavish Manhattan townhouse.

Downstairs, the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs, where a group of insiders have staked themselves out in the producer's bedroom as they wait for the reviews to come in.

Included are the excitable young author; the brilliant but unstable director (who courts failure and is devastated when his work is well received); the pill-popping leading lady (who is hoping to revive her career after a series of flop movies); a fawning, hypocritical drama critic (who is a closet playwright); and the playwright's best friend, an egotistical but insecure comic actor who passed up a chance to star in the play for a television series — which has since been cancelled.

AUDIENCE ADVISORY: The play contains adult language and is therefore not suitable for young children.

It's Only a Play is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. The videotaping or other video or audio recording of this production is strictly prohibited.

"Young Frankenstein" -- Oct. 5 to 22, 2017"Young Frankenstein"
The New Mel Brooks Musical
Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks

Directed by Bill Morgan
Choreographed by Conni Fleming
Musical Direction by John Ebner

It's alive! The electrifying adaptation of Mel Brooks' monstrously funny film will leave you in stitches!

From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation The Producers comes this monsterly new musical comedy. Comedy genius Mel Brooks has adapted his legendarily funny film into a brilliant stage creation – Young Frankenstein!

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced "FRONK-en-steen") inherits his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced "EYE-gore"), and a leggy lab assistant named Inga (pronounced normally!), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. "It's alive!" he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather's. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds.

With such memorable tunes as "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz," Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven to be monstrously good entertainment!

Young Frankenstein is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. The videotaping or other video or audio recording of this production is strictly prohibited.
