A Message from the Mysterium Theatre: 

“Two years ago, we moved to this wonderful historic building and we are doing renovations and putting on between 15-21 shows each season.  We just got hit with some pretty big expenses and the rights to several shows coming up are larger than we had hoped.  We have some fantastic folks both on and off stage that have come along for the adventure of creating art that the community desperately needs.  We are also developing an after school program to have the future generation fall in love and participate in the arts – singing, dancing, acting on set, lighting design and much more.  At the moment we need an immediate 2,500.00.” Taken from the website

Set during the early twentieth century, The Music Man is about what happens when traveling salesman Harold Hill (Ray Buffer) comes to River City, Iowa. Harold is the titular character because he sells boys marching bands: the instruments, the uniforms, the lessons, and so on. He guarantees a marching band will keep River City happy and out of trouble. While most of the people fall under Harold’s spell and become wildly enthusiastic about a marching band, librarian/music teacher Marian Paroo (Mallory Staley) doubts the purity of Harold’s intentions. Still she cannot ignore the effect Harold is having on River City or her changing feelings towards the man himself. Continue Reading

Fame: The Musical @ Mysterium Theater – Review

Written by Daniella Litvak 

Fame is the hit movie from the 1980s, featuring teenagers dancing in the streets of New York City to the proclamation of “Fame! I’m gonna live forever/I’m gonna learn how to fly (high!)”–these lyrics have since become an indelible part of pop culture. The film won two Academy Awards for Best Original Song and Best Original Score. It spawned two television series – a reality show competition –and even a film remake in 2009.

Fame : The Musical “Fame” Performed By The Mysterium Theater – Video

Fame – the Musical is a stage musical based on the 1980 hit musical film Fame which starred Irene Cara and featured the famous title song. The show had its world premiere in Florida, USA in 1988 before it transferred to an Off-Broadway venue in 2003. The show was conceived and developed by David de Silva, who was one of the original producers of the film. After the film’s success, a television series was mounted and it ran for six seasons. The musical was developed away from the film and TV adaptations, and although there are similarities, their scripts and book are fundamentally different. The score for the musical was completely re-written and the title track only included as an addition. This talented and energetic cast brings new life into the story set in the 1980’s high school of the performing arts. Taken from the Youtube page
