On Stage This Weekend

   On stage this weekend, there are four great shows, including a concert by First Stage's top talent, a collection of Gilbert & Sullivan's greatest hits, a serious drama and a hit musical!

   Here's the rundown:

- Showcase 2017 - First Stage Theatre Company presents a concert and talent show featuring alumni and present-day performers. The performance will be one night only, on Saturday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m. at Huntington High School's auditorium at 1 Highlander Way. Tickets are available at the door - $12 for adults and $10 for children age 12 and under. The performance is a fundraiser for Huntington's children's theatre.

- An Evening with Gilbert & Sullivan - ARTS presents a concert of classic songs from the masters of musical theatre! Shows will be presented on Thursday, Friday and Saturday - May 11, 12, and 13 - at 8 p.m. at the Renaissance Theatre Ballroom at 900 8th Street in Huntington. Tickets are $15 each. 

- Dutchman - Curtains Up Players present the play on Friday, May 12 and Saturday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m. and May 14 at 2:30 p.m. at the Huntington City Hall Auditorium. Centered squarely on racial conflict, the play is literally a shocking play - in ideas, in language, in honest anger. A full question and answer discussion will take place after each performance. Some content may not be suitable for all audiences.

- Sister Act: The Musical - The Charleston Light Opera Guild present the musical comedy based on the popular film on May 12, 13, 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m., and May 14 at 2 p.m. at the Charleston Civic Center Little Theatre at One Civic Center Drive. Tickets are $25 Reserved seating.
