Join us for another year of spectacular live theatre events!

DAC STAGE is planning a new season which includes special events and live theatre performances beginning this fall in the DAC Weatherstone Studio.

Check back here in September for our 2014/2015 season announcement and for information on tickets and how to audition.

Our last performance was a HUGE hit!

Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris


The famous French singer-songwriter Jacques Brel would have been 85 years old this month. To celebrate his life and talent, Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris, a show described as a cabaret style revue, will be performed for two weekends in the DAC Weatherstone Studio in May.  

Each song is a story unto itself and woven together to shape the fabric of the human experience and a full range of emotions. Some songs will make you laugh; some will make you cry and all will make you think. The Belgian born, French resident, Jacques Brel, wrote the original music and lyrics and they were translated and adapted for English speaking audiences by Eric Blau and Mort Shuman. It is being presented with special permission by Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

Peter Green will direct the show with music direction by Keith Levenson.  Peter and Keith’s life-long love of Brel’s music comes through in their enthusiasm and passion for the show. The seven performers remind us that the human voice is an instrument that can convey beauty while tapping into deep emotional truth while delighting audiences. All were professionally trained as actors or singers and are excited to have the opportunity to perform in this iconic show. With a step back to another place and time, the only thing missing will be the haze of cigarette smoke that one would expect from a cabaret performance in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.

 

Unreserved seating will be at cabaret tables to lend to the Parisian Café atmosphere. Please arrive early to be sure you have the seats that you want. Doors open at 7:30 pm with refreshments available at that time.

Performances are: May 2, 3, 9 & 10 at 8pm, May 4 at 2pm and May 10 at 3pm.
