 Iberia Performing Arts League Presents The Drowsy Chaperone

The Iberia Performing Arts League presents The Drowsy Chaperone, the hilarious award-winning musical comedy, March 6-22 at the Essanee Theater (126 Iberia St., New Iberia).  Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 7:30 with Sunday matinees at 3:00. Tickets are $20 and are available at Delaune’s Pharmacy, Paul’s Flower Shop, Accentrics, or by calling the theater at 364-6114. For additional information you may call the theater or e-mail ipal@cox.net. Rated PG-13. The Drowsy Chaperone is a new musical that opened on Broadway in 2006, winning the Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, and many others as well as a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical. It begins with a present-day musical theatre fanatic eager to tell the audience about his favorite Broadway musical - a 1920s romp called The Drowsy Chaperone. As he begins listening to the rare cast recording, the uproariously funny musical magically bursts to life in his apartment, telling the hilarious tale of a pampered Broadway starlet and her debonair fiance, an overzealous producer, a dizzy chorine, the Latin lover, a couple of bumbling gangsters, and of course one rather intoxicated chaperone. Ruses are played. Hi-jinks occur. And the plot spins everyone into musical comedy euphoria. According to director, Travis Guillory, “The Drowsy Chaperone is the funniest musical you will see. Along with the lavish sets, masterful orchestra, and top-notch cast, this show will have your toes tapping and your sides splitting from laughter. If you enjoy big band jazz, huge dance numbers, colorful sets and costumes, and zany comedy, get your tickets now!” This performance is supported, in part, by a grant from the Louisiana State Arts Council, through the Louisiana Divisions of the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. Funding has also been provided through the Acadiana Center for the Arts and Iberia Bank.

IPAL Announces 2014-2015 Season

                 The Iberia Performing Arts League is pleased to announce its 2014-2015 regular Theater Season.  This Season will include two dramatic plays and three musical productions of various types sure to please every taste. IPAL performs in the historic Essanee Theater in New Iberia, La. With a large theater seating 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

                  IPAL’s grand spring musical will be “The Drowsy Chaperone” by Bob Martin and Don McKellar with music by Lisa Lambert.   This musical comedy is a parody of American musical comedy of the 1920s. The story concerns a middle-aged musical theatre fan; as he plays the record of his favorite musical, the (fictional) 1928 hit The Drowsy Chaperone, it actually comes to life in his apartment. The musical score is jazzy, the humor is constant, the IPAL orchestra will be in the pit and IPAL will do its “magic” again.  The show was nominated for every major Tony Award in 2006 and won the Tony award for Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score. “The Drowsy Chaperone” also won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical as well as many other awards.  It runs three weeks March 6-22, 2015 and will be directed by Travis Guillory.

                Rounding off IPAL’s 2014-2015 Season will be “The Rainmaker” by N. Richard Nash.  Set in dust bowl Oklahoma, the  play has been described as insightful, comedic and romantic. A charming confidence trickster named Starbuck arrives and promises to bring rain in exchange for $100. His arrival changes many-a-life. The 1956 movie of the drama starred Burt Lancaster as Starbuck and Katherine Hepburn as Lizzie Curry. The play will be directed by Dianne Moss and runs May 28-June 7, 2015

                Both individual and Season Tickets are available for all IPAL productions. Tickets are $10 for regular plays and for the Christmas show, $15 for “Godspell” (student discounts with ID), and $20 for “The Drowsy Chaperone.” A block of Season Tickets can be purchased for $60 which saves patrons $5 on individual prices and provides advance assigned seating for The Drowsy Chaperone.  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 .

DOTD announces plans to pursue design-build construction for I-49 South project in St. Mary Parish

Monday, July 07, 2014 9:13 AM

JEANERETTE, La. – Today, Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development Secretary Sherri H. LeBas announced plans to move forward with the construction of I-49 South by pursuing a design-build contract for the construction of the U.S.90/La. 318 interchange in St. Mary Parish.
“The completion of I-49 South is a priority for the state,” said Secretary LeBas. “We’re able to pursue innovative ways, such as the design-build method, to move us one step closer to achieving our goal of upgrading U.S. 90 to interstate standards."
Earlier today, DOTD issued a Notice of Intent (NOI) seeking a design-build firm to construct the next section of I-49 South, the U.S. 90/La. 318 interchange in St. Mary Parish. The NOI can be viewed on DOTD’s website.
The proposed project includes upgrading the existing U.S. 90 and La. 318 signalized intersection to a full control of access, grade-separated interchange including the reconstruction of the U.S. 90 frontage roads to provide local access to La. 318. As part of the plan, the project would improve connectivity for industrial and freight transport to the sugar mill and port-related industries, as well as increase capacity and improve overall mobility.
The estimated project cost is $55M - $65M and will be funded by a combination of federal and state funds. The contract is expected to be executed in June, 2015 and completed in three years.
Additionally, in December 2013, DOTD announced the winning bid for another I-49 South design-build project in Lafayette Parish. The $57.1 million project will widen U.S. 90 along the U.S. 90/I-49 South corridor from north of Ambassador Caffery Parkway to Albertson’s Parkway in Lafayette Parish. The contract was executed in February 2014. The project is estimated to begin construction by the end of this month and completed in three years.
Since 2008, the state has invested $6.4 billion in more than 7,000 miles of Louisiana’s roadways. This total includes $638 million towards transportation along the U.S. 90 corridor and approximately $14 million in St. Mary Parish.
