|Announcing the 2012-2013 Season Lineup|
Jackson, MI – May 23, 2012
Center Stage Jackson is pleased to announce that their 2012-2013 season will include the following productions: Stepping Out; The King and I; A Song for Coretta and Hairspray.
“Stepping Out” - Baughman Theater – Jackson Community College - September 2012
A warm and funny musical about a group of women (and one man) attending a weekly tap-dance class in a dingy church hall. The class's dancing improves to such an extent that by the finale, a grand charity show performance, they have been transformed into triumphant tappers, worthy of any chorus line
“The King and I “- Baughman Theater – Jackson Community College - November 2012
The beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, based on the 1944 novel Anna and the King of Siam by Margaret Landon, about the experiences of a British schoolteacher hired as part of the King's drive to modernize his country. The relationship between the King and Anna is marked by conflict through much of the play, as well as by a love that neither is able to express.
“A Song for Coretta” – Middle School at Parkside - February 2013
On February 6, 2006, people began lining up at dawn outside of Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church to pay respects to the late Coretta Scott King, widow of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose body lay in state there. People stood patiently for hours to say goodbye. Near midnight, the crowd had dwindled to a determined few. Five fictional characters in this play are at the end of the line of mourners.
“Hairspray” - Baughman Theater – Jackson Community College - June 2013
The rousing hit musical!! Tracy Turnblad, a large girl with big hair and a kind heart, has only one passion--to dance. She wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show" and is quickly transformed into a teen celebrity. She then successfully sets out to vanquish the program's reigning princess, win the heart of the handsome Link Larkin, and racially integrate the television show.
