Man of La Mancha Spring Musical
Dream the Impossible Dream! Suffield High School proudly presents Man of LaMancha March 19th, 20th, 21st at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale at the door, from cast and crew members, or at lunch in the commons at SHS, students $7 and adults $10. Doors open at 7:00.
MAN OF LA MANCHA is a remarkable show and one of the great theatre successes of our time. This is a play-within-a-play, based on Cervantes’ “Don Quixote.” We have a poignant story of a dying old man whose impossible dream takes over his mind. It’s All the Same, Dulcinea, I’m Only Thinking of Him, The Impossible Dream, I Really Like Him and Little Bird remain in your thoughts and in your soul well after you see the show.
His dream is Everyman’s dream. His tilting at windmills is Everyman’s great adventure. Somehow, the footlights disappear, time is telescoped and the “Man of La Mancha” speaks for humankind.
The SHS production stars Bryan Donahue as the wandering knight Don Quixote, Caelie Flanagan as the an inn’s serving girl Aldonza, and Hayley Ouellette as Quixote’s Squire Sancho.
