Man of La Mancha
Center Stage Productions presents the five-time, Tony award-winning musical, Man of La Mancha, August 14 – 17 at Neumann University.
The story takes place in a dungeon in Seville during the Spanish Inquisition. There, Cervantes is imprisoned for an offense against the Church. While in prison, the inmates put him on trial in a court of their own design. Man of La Mancha is a play-within-a-play, based on Cervantes’ classic story, Don Quixote. From there, the story reveals a poignant tale of a dying old man, Alonso Quijana, whose impossible dream overtakes his mind. Quijana renames himself Don Quixote de La Mancha, and sets out to find adventures with his squire, Sancho Panza.
Man of La Mancha brings the dream of the everyman alive with a roaring adventure and moving songs such as I’m Only Thinking of Him and The Impossible Dream.
Performances run Thursday through Saturday, August 14-16, at 8 P.M. and Sunday, August 17, at 2 P.M in the Fred P. Meagher Theatre in the Thomas A. Bruder, Jr. Life Center. General admission is $15. College students with ID, children under 18 and seniors are $12. For ticket information call 610-558-5626.
