A Southeast regional premiere! What if one thought cost you everything? This September, the Hipp and UF School of Theatre + Dance collaborate to bring George Orwell’s best-selling literary masterpiece to the stage. This radical, award-winning adaptation explores the erosion of privacy, destruction of identity, and an Orwellian future that is as relevant now as ever.

The Chicago Sun-Times calls 1984 “A chilling, hard-hitting stage adaptation.”

The year is 2020, three days before the opening of the Tokyo Olympics. While she should be studying for her exams, Kokone Morikawa is often dozing off, stuck between reality and a dream-world full of fantastic motorized contraptions. But after her father, a talented but mysterious mechanic, is arrested for stealing technology from a powerful corporation, it’s up to Kokone and her childhood friend Morio to save him. Together they realize that Kokone’s dream-world holds the answers to the mystery behind the stolen tech, and they embark on a journey that traverses dreams and reality, city and country, and past and present. Their mission uncovers a trail of clues to her father’s disappearance and ultimately a surprising revelation about Kokone’s family.

From director Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and Eden of the East) comes a sci-fi fantasy that effortlessly weaves together the rapidly evolving technology of today’s world with the fantastic imagination of the next generation. With an ambitious mix of multilayered action, whimsical characters and inventive machines, Napping Princess is a genre- and universe-blending film that shows that following your dreams is sometimes the best way to discover your past.

Black Sabbath: The End of the End

“Black Sabbath: The End of the End”
ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Sept. 28 | 7:30 p.m
$12 tickets“The End of the End” chronicles the final tour of the band that forged the sound of metal, the one and only – Black Sabbath. On Feb. 4, the band took to the stage in Birmingham, England, to play the 81st and final gig of “The End Tour,” bringing down the curtain on a career that spanned nearly half a century. The sold-out show marked the culmination of a tour to more than a million fans in arenas across the globe. Since the band’s beginnings in 1968, Black Sabbath created the sound that would form the basis of heavy metal, going on to influence bands all over the world – an influence that is still felt to this day.

“The End of the End” is the story of that final, emotionally-charged concert. Fans are taken into the heart of the action, up close and personal with the band as the members perform genre-defining hits, from “Iron Man” to “Paranoid” to “War Pigs,” among others. Black Sabbath took the opportunity to spend time in the studio, delivering a unique performance of some of their favorite songs. This film gives fans an intimate glimpse into the band members’ relationships and banter with each other, including both individual and group recollections from Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler.

The band’s loyal following spans generations and this is an opportunity for fans, young and old, to come together and see Black Sabbath doing what they do best, almost 50 years after they started. This is the final word from the greatest metal band of all time.
