IPAL Announces 2015-2016  Season

                The Iberia Performing Arts League is pleased to announce its 2015-2016 regular Theater Season.  This Season will include two dramatic plays and three musical productions with live music of various types and is sure to please every taste as theatergoers enjoy “Broadway on the Bayou.” IPAL performs in the historic Essanee Theater in New Iberia, La. With a theater seating capacity of nearly 200, and a modern light and sound system, IPAL is able to offer the Iberia Community and surrounding areas top notch theater in a pleasant environment.  All IPAL plays run Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 7:30 with a Sunday Matinee at 3:00. Opening the 2015-2016 Season will be “A Raisin in the Sun” by Lorraine Hansberry. This groundbreaking drama starred Sidney Poitier, Claudia McNeill, Ruby Dee and Diana Sands in the Broadway production which opened in 1959.  In this American classic, the plot revolves around the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family. The show will be directed by Phanat Xanamane and will run Sept 10-20, 2015.   Following the season opener will be a musical, “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” with  book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music by Jimmy Roberts.  It is the second longest running “Off-Broadway” show of all times (after only “The Fantastics”). The show’s tagline is “Everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit.” Told through a series of vignettes, the musical follows two couples through life. It will be directed by Dianne Moss and will run October 29 –November, 2015.  For Mature Audiences Only. Next up in IPAL’s season will be an original IPAL production, “A USO Christmas Show” which will be encored this season. According to director, Kim Monroe, “The show was such a hit last year, we had to turn people away at the door! There are many who never got to see it. And just like pulling out all those old Christmas albums or CDs, many will want to see it again.“ The setting will be a naval base in the 40’s or 50’s!  It’s a sure fire bet that those Christmas Classics will be included, along with special guests and specialty acts.  This encore presentation will run only one weekend, December 3-6, 2015,  and will again be directed by Kim Monroe. IPAL’s grand spring musical will be “Jesus Christ, Superstar” with music by the extraordinary Andrew Lloyd Weber and lyrics by Tim Rice. This ”rock-opera” is loosely based on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’ life. What began as a concept album in 1970 was turned into a Broadway musical by 1971 and a movie by 1973. It was nominated for five Tony Awards. For this epic show, the IPAL orchestra will be in the pit and IPAL will do its “magic” again.  “Jesus Christ, Superstar” runs three weeks March 4-20, 2016 and will be directed by Katherine Caffery. Rounding off IPAL’s 2015-2016 Season will be “Out of Sight, Out of Murder” by Fred Carmichael. In the hilarious story, Peter Knight is grinding out a murder story in an old mansion where another  author was murdered years before. A weird electrical storm affects a cosmic snafu, and his characters come to life. Peter loses control of his characters and there is another murder! Directed by Donna Berard, the show will provide a fun finale to this wonderful season June 2-12, 2016. Both individual and Season Tickets are available for these IPAL productions. Tickets are $10 for regular plays, $15 for the Christmas Musical and  “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” and $20 for “Jesus Christ, Superstar.” A block of Season Tickets can be purchased for $65 which saves patrons $5 on individual prices, provides advance assigned seating for “Jesus Christ, Superstar”, and allows the season ticket holder to vote in IPAL’s new Award Program. For ticket information contact IPAL at 337-364-6114 and leave name and return phone number. Season tickets can also be obtained at ipal@cox.net or by visiting IPAL’S website www.ipaltheater.com . IPAL is sponsored in part by a Grant from the Louisiana State Arts Council through the Louisiana Division of the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts as administered by the Acadiana Center for the Arts.
