S.T.A.G.E. shows planned for Jan. 23-25 at St. Teresa in Lincoln
LINCOLN (SNR) - S.T.A.G.E. (Student Theater And Godly Evangelization) will present “The Merchant of Tennis” Jan. 23-25 at St. Teresa Parish’s Kaczmarek Hall, 36th and Randolph streets, Lincoln.
The original musical, written and directed, by Lee Hotovy, will be performed by students ages 9-12.
Set in Venice, the humorous parody of Shakespeare’s famous play, sends a message of love of neighbor, wrapped around the game of tennis. Toni, the Merchant of Tennis, is in need of a “thing” to use his new rackets on, but it has yet to be discovered until three explorers enter the scene. Unsure whether the world is flat or round, they head off in search of the “thing,” while Toni and the Duchess of Tennis Court deal with their unruly neighbor, King Arthur Sash.
Original songs for the musical were written by Anna Hanselmann, with choreography by Karrie Seeman.
