StageOne Family Theatre: Louisville's ONLY Professional Theater for Young Audiences! Our MAINSTAGE season kicks off with Frankenstein, Mary Shelley's tale of horror as adapted by Idris Goodwin. When Victor Frankenstein's experiments result in a grotesque creature beyond his control, chaos ensues. Next, we bring back a holiday favorite in December with The Best Christmas Pageant Ever and all six Herdmans (the worst kids in the whole history of the universe.) Will they ruin the pageant, or will the spirit of the season change their hearts and minds? In 2019, audiences will delight in the antics of Peter Hatcher's mischievous little brother, Fudge, in the staged version of Judy Blume's Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. Rounding out the season is a funny twist on a classic fable, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. Keep it going with our STORYTELLERS Series, returning with eight performance dates. This "theater for the very young" program is perfect for ages 2-8, and is a wonderful introduction to the live theater experience with actors, props, and audience participation in an intimate setting.

Kentucky Opera Begins Its 67th Season Kentucky Opera invites you to experience breathtaking, world- class voices — the thrill of listening to opera live! The 67th season promises to be outstanding featuring two beloved classics and one Kentucky Opera premiere. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's The Magic Flute is the first production of the season at the Brown Theatre with performances September 21 and 23. Fairytale? Love story? Or, multi- layered allegory? You decide. Genies and villains, bunnies, bats and boars, and of course, a magic flute — they're all part of this high- flying adventure that delights the kid in us all. Ben Moore's Enemies, A Love Story, November 9 & 11, is a brilliant new opera based on the novel by Isaac Bashevis Singer that also inspired an award-winning movie. Secrets and lies fill the life of Herman Broder, ghostwriter for a famous rabbi in 1948 New York in this darkly funny and deeply moving tale of hope, guilt, and despair. Our final production is Giuseppe Verdi's, Rigoletto, February 15 & 17. Originally banned by the censors, Rigoletto is Verdi's first incomparably great characterization, Shakesperearen in its complexity and grandeur. Experience the masterwork that rivets audience with its incendiary drama and outpouring of famous melodies, including the achingly poignant Rigoletto/Gilda duets and the Duke's ode to the fickleness of women: La Donna é mobile. Tickets are now on sale for The Magic Flute and Enemies, A Love Story starting at just $20. Call (502) 584-7777 or order online at KYOpera.org. Special Advertising Section
