West Side Story

When:
April 3, 2014 @ 7:30 pm
Where:
McCainKSU, 207 McCain Auditorium, Manhattan, KS, 66506, United States

A timeless love story with choreography that sizzles.

More than fifty years ago one musical changed theater forever. Now it’s back and mesmerizing audiences once again. From the first note to the final breath, “West Side Story” soars as the greatest love story of all time. This revival, based on Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents’ Broadway direction, remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest and features such classics of the American musical theatre as “Something’s Coming,” “Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere.” As the Associated Press says, “West Side Story remains Broadway’s best dance-driven musical. Five decades have not dimmed the extraordinary choreography or the score that pulsates throughout.”

“This fresh, bold production is so exciting it makes you ache with pleasure. It’s both airborne and transcendent.” — John Lahr, The New Yorker

West Side Story is recommended for ages 13+. Please be advised that there is strong language, violence and some sensitive subject matter that is true to the story and plot. Parental guidance is suggested.

Earth Harp Meets Oud

When:
April 6, 2014 @ 4:00 pm

McCainKSU, 207 McCain Auditorium, Manhattan, KS, 66506, United States

Earth Harp Meets Oud
William Close, earth harp
Yuval Ron, oud
Norik Manoukian, Armenian woodwinds
Jamie Papish, percussion

The Earth Harp is the largest stringed instrument on the planet. Invented by installation artist and musician William Close, the earth harp’s body rests on the stage while its golden strings soar above the heads of the audience and attach to the balcony rails, turning theater into instrument. Wearing gloves covered with violin rosin, Close runs his hands along the strings to create beautiful cello-like tones which resonate throughout the theater, creating a one-ofa- kind sensory experience that is felt by all.

Yuval Ron is a world-renowned musician, composer, educator and record producer. Among his many accomplishments and honors, he composed the music for the Oscar winning film, “West Bank Story” and was invited to perform for the Dalai Lama. A noted lecturer, Ron has been invited to speak at numerous schools including Yale, The John Hopkins University, UCLA, MIT and many others. Ron is the musical director and oud player for The Yuval Ron Ensemble. Considered the ancestor to the guitar, the modern oud’s roots can be traced to the ancient lute of the Middle East.
