Mysterious, Sultry and Treacherous...Double Indemnity at the Playhouse

Will the unsuspecting husband survive?  Can their relationship continue?  Running through May 18th, check in here for tickets.

Trains, Trestles and Traditions Now at Krohn Conservatory

by The Cincinnati Team

It's a must go!  This year's Krohn Conservatory Holiday show, The Return of Trains, Trestles and Traditions is one of the best ever!  Plan to take you family before it closes on January 6.

The show will appeal to all ages, but especially to train lovers and gardeners.  It's absolutely a treat! Trains wander over bridges and through tunnels and covered bridges, including the favorite, Tommy the Train. All are LGB trains that use "G"scale, a larger size that children can see more easily amongst the poinsettias, amaryllis', cyclamens and evergreens. The size is also perfect with flowers for garden railroading.

Applied Imagination brought all their talents to bear in designing the layout and building the miniature replicas of outstanding Cincinnati landmarks.  Even more interesting is that they are built out of natural materials.  The Roebling Suspension Bridge is made of bark...who would have thought that it looks like stone when placed in this display? Try to identify the historical buildings that have been recreated by Applied Imagination for the event.

Treat Children to a Theater Experience this Season              Christmas Carol - Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park

Christmas Carol at the Playhouse in the Park

Backstage Tour of a Christmas Carol at the Playhouse in the Park   

After the Board of Trustee meeting on Thursday, we were all invited backstage at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park.  What a surprising treat!

 I had never before gotten to go back into the rabbit warren of stairs, rooms and tiny spaces.  The actors must be exhausted after going up and down all those stairs to enter and exit in the correct time and space.  Here are Christmas Carol - Cincinnati Playhouse in the Parkpictures that give you an idea of what we saw up close.Christmas Carol - Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park  This man sits underneath the stage and makes all the trap doors open and close at exactly the right minute.  Notice the two screens behind him.  He has both a side view and a view from above so that no one is standing on the trap when the doors open.  From the stage, it is hard to tell where the doors are.

 

Scenery from stage has doors that open and movement so that it can appear to be an inside scene.

Hank Williams: Lost Highway at the Playhouse - Nov. 3-Dec. 23   

Hank Williams: Lost HighwayConsidered the father of contemporary music, Hank Williams was a superstar by age 25 and dead by age 29. The Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park's presentation goes beyond his legend as a man, to the roots of his music. The play explores his early backwoods upbringing, where he received his first guitar at age 8 from his mother.  You will follow him as he moved on to his stardom days on the Grand Ole Opry. And then come the hard years of fame, drugs, and alcohol.

More than 20 of the Williams’ most popular songs will be preformed, including “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “Hey, Good Lookin’” and “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,”   Did you know that Hank Williams even recorded several of his greatest hits here in Cincinnati at WCKY?

Learn more about the show from Blake Robison, the new Artistic Director of the Playhouse in the Park
