The Stonehill Theatre Company and the Department of Visual and Performing Arts present Das Barbecü, a musical comedy with music by Scott Warrender and book and lyrics by Jim Luigs. Directed by guest artist Peter A. Carey, this re-telling of Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle operas takes place in present day Texas and is filled with romance, rivalries, and line dancing. Hilarious scenes spin around two sets of mismatched lovers who meet on the day of their shotgun double wedding and amidst three generations of outrageous characters from two feuding families. Spells are cast and curses affect the lives of many characters resulting in orphaned children and adulterous affairs. With 13 actors portraying 30 different characters, Das Barbecü is a fun, tongue-in-cheek look at how one magic ring created from stolen gold can cause controversy throughout all of Texas. This “Lord of the Rings meets Desperate Housewives” country-western musical is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Show dates are April 11th, 12th, and 13th at 8:00 PM in the Hemingway Theatre at Stonehill College. Tickets are $5 for students and seniors, and $8 for general admission. Tickets can be purchased in advance by calling the Stonehill Theatre Company Box Office at (508) 565-1458 or at the door.
