"Over 25 years, Quality Hill Playhouse has continued to introduce new facets to our cabaret format. When we introduced bass and drums to our shows, we really began to swing – just like we’ll do in this exciting show of swing from the days of big bands to today." ~ J. Kent Barnhart, Founder and Producing Artistic Director

In the 1930s, Americans went wild for the swing music craze. That sound is still popular today, and whether it be sweet or hot, tunes such as “It Don’t Mean A Thing,” “Stardust,” “I Got Rhythm,” “It’s Only A Paper Moon,” and “I’ve Got The World On A String” keep people – and our theatre – swingin’!

[more+]

Girlfriend is set in 1993 small-town Nebraska during the summer between high school and whatever comes next. College-bound jock Mike and self-assured but aimless Will find themselves drawn to each other. Their rush of first-time love, full of excitement, confusion and passion, is captured by the power-pop precision and frayed guitar emotion of Matthew Sweet's alternative rock album "Girlfriend." Directed by Michael Grayman-Parkhurst with music direction by Pamela Baskin-Watson, Girlfriend features Dakotta Hagar and Jeremy Ragland.

ASL Shadow Interpreted performances of Girlfriend will be offered January 29 – February 2. Certified interpreters Lisa Lehnen and Juliana Ladd will perform all five performances that week. Shadow interpreting, in which interpreters “shadow” the actors, allows D/deaf and hard-of-hearing patrons the ability to take in both the sign language and the action simultaneously and offers a more seamless experience for the entire audience.

[more+]

The Squirrel Nut Zippers began their musical journey in the mid-1990s as a musician’s escape from the cookie-cutter world of modern rock radio at the time. Jimbo Mathus, along with drummer/percussionist Chris Phillips, formed the band as a casual musical foray among friends and family. The band’s quirky mix of jazz chords, folk music, and punk rock leanings began attracting a national audience. Between 1995 and 2000, the band sold three million albums. Years later, Squirrel Nut Zippers emerged from a lengthy hiatus, reinvigorated, reinvested, and rejuvenated with an all-star cast of New Orleans musicians reigniting the band’s unique, enigmatic sound.

Since 1977, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band has toured across five continents, more than 30 countries, and has recorded 12 albums, in addition to collaborating with a range of artists from Modest Mouse to Widespread Panic to Norah Jones. Beginning as The Dirty Dozen Social and Pleasure Club in New Orleans, the seven-member group assembled as a house band. Throughout the course of these early gigs, they adopted the venue’s name: The Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

Tickets for the event range from $29 to $49, plus applicable fees.

Inspired by Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic novel, this relatable and moving story has Alison reliving her upbringing with her brilliant and volatile father—a man whose own secrets defined the family—while discovering her own sexuality. It’s a journey marked by honesty and humor and filled with memorable songs. The New York Times says Fun Home is a “heart-gripping and cathartic” musical that delivers a deeply satisfying emotional wallop.

"Over 25 years, Quality Hill Playhouse has continued to introduce new facets to our cabaret format. When we introduced bass and drums to our shows, we really began to swing – just like we’ll do in this exciting show of swing from the days of big bands to today." ~ J. Kent Barnhart, Founder and Producing Artistic Director

In the 1930s, Americans went wild for the swing music craze. That sound is still popular today, and whether it be sweet or hot, tunes such as “It Don’t Mean A Thing,” “Stardust,” “I Got Rhythm,” “It’s Only A Paper Moon,” and “I’ve Got The World On A String” keep people – and our theatre – swingin’!

[more+]

Girlfriend is set in 1993 small-town Nebraska during the summer between high school and whatever comes next. College-bound jock Mike and self-assured but aimless Will find themselves drawn to each other. Their rush of first-time love, full of excitement, confusion and passion, is captured by the power-pop precision and frayed guitar emotion of Matthew Sweet's alternative rock album "Girlfriend." Directed by Michael Grayman-Parkhurst with music direction by Pamela Baskin-Watson, Girlfriend features Dakotta Hagar and Jeremy Ragland.

ASL Shadow Interpreted performances of Girlfriend will be offered January 29 – February 2. Certified interpreters Lisa Lehnen and Juliana Ladd will perform all five performances that week. Shadow interpreting, in which interpreters “shadow” the actors, allows D/deaf and hard-of-hearing patrons the ability to take in both the sign language and the action simultaneously and offers a more seamless experience for the entire audience.

[more+]

The Squirrel Nut Zippers began their musical journey in the mid-1990s as a musician’s escape from the cookie-cutter world of modern rock radio at the time. Jimbo Mathus, along with drummer/percussionist Chris Phillips, formed the band as a casual musical foray among friends and family. The band’s quirky mix of jazz chords, folk music, and punk rock leanings began attracting a national audience. Between 1995 and 2000, the band sold three million albums. Years later, Squirrel Nut Zippers emerged from a lengthy hiatus, reinvigorated, reinvested, and rejuvenated with an all-star cast of New Orleans musicians reigniting the band’s unique, enigmatic sound.

Since 1977, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band has toured across five continents, more than 30 countries, and has recorded 12 albums, in addition to collaborating with a range of artists from Modest Mouse to Widespread Panic to Norah Jones. Beginning as The Dirty Dozen Social and Pleasure Club in New Orleans, the seven-member group assembled as a house band. Throughout the course of these early gigs, they adopted the venue’s name: The Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

Tickets for the event range from $29 to $49, plus applicable fees.
