The Christians Observership Now Enrolling

Hippodrome Theatre’s Spring Play Observership

A Behind-the-Scenes Look Into: The Christians

It takes months of planning and dozens of theatre professionals to produce a play on the Hippodrome mainstage. The Hippodrome Play Observership offers the opportunity for the public to go behind-the-scenes at a professional regional theatre. Alongside the director, designers, actors and staff, participants are immersed in the theatrical creative process and experience as the production team takes a play from page to stage. 

In this engaging Play Observership, you will be led through the creative process of a challenging and deeply personal new play by Lucas Hnath, The Christians. Come explore with us as we bring this beautiful exploration of a church struggling with its faith to life on the stage!

Participants in the Observership will witness designer presentations, the cast table read of the script, additional rehearsals, a backstage Hippodrome tour, and the chance to experience a press run of the show. The Observership culminates with a preview performance and post-show discussion with the cast and creative team. Cost for 5 classes includes 1 ticket to the preview performance.

Ripcord onstage March 2 -25!

The Hippodrome Theatre proudly presents
RIPCORD
by Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire
directed by V Craig Heidenreich

February 28-March 25, 2018

 

GAINESVILLE– Everyone’s had that roommate. The one who reveled in grinding your gears. The one you didn’t quite strangle in their sleep but if they did that one thing one more time…

The Hippodrome Theatre presents the hilariously heartfelt Florida Premiere of “Ripcord.” A tale of two roommates who should not be in the same state, much less the same room!

Two of Gainesville’s theatre icons Nell Page and Sara Morsey take it to the limit when a simple bet escalates into a no-holds-barred epic battle. It’s the Thunderdome in the old folks home for a wild night of hilarity and hijinks at the Hipp.

Pulitzer-prize winning playwright, David Lindsay-Abaire, has created a play of high-stakes hilarity, watch for yourself as each character tries to rip the other to bits.

 “‘Ripcord’ invites the audience and anyone who experiences this story to embrace the idea of being present and joyful, because life is going to end whether you like it or not,” said director VC Heidenreich. “You get to choose if you want that peach cobbler to taste like peach cobbler or taste like paste.”

 The New York Times calls RIPCORD “An expertly engineered comedy!” and Deadline calls it “vastly entertaining… a show to treasure.”

“Ripcord” is as heartfelt as it is deliciously inappropriate, directed on the Hippodrome Mainstage by VC Heidenreich. A Florida Premiere!

The Royale

The Hippodrome Theatre  proudly presents 

“The Royale” by Marco Ramirez

This January, join us for “The Royale,” a New York Times Critics’ Pick inspired by the real-life story of Jack Johnson, the first African-American World Heavyweight Champion.

Determined. Brave. Fierce. Loyal. Jay “The Sport” Jackson embodies every characteristic that defines a hero. He trail-blazed across the nation, rising from poverty in the Jim Crow south to take on the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

“The Royale” brings breathtaking focus to a pivotal moment in sports history — but it is Jackson’s sheer force of will, relentlessness, and fierce belief in himself that will leave you breathless.

“The play is a stylized, blazingly theatrical triumph that keeps audience members on the edge of their seats.” – Miami Herald

Written by Marco Ramirez, “The Royale” is directed on the Hippodrome Mainstage by Ryan George & Lauren Warhol Caldwell.

REVIEWS

“Ramirez avoids cliches, preferring to delve deep into his leading character’s psyche and probe such complex questions as whether breaking down barriers or smashing glass ceilings can be almost an accident, and, either way, something not worth the personal cost.” – Chicago Tribune

“[…] a well constructed drama that captures both the beautiful frenzy of boxing and the (sadly still relevant) volatile state of race relations in America.” – The Telegraph

Letter to the Editor: Powerful Production | “The Royale”

Letter to the Editor in the Gainesville Sun:

Powerful production

As a longtime Hippodrome patron, I am moved to share my experience at the recent production of “The Royale” by Marco Ramirez. It was one of the most powerful, profound and entertaining evenings of theater I’ve ever witnessed.

The play, inspired by Jack Johnson, the first African American heavyweight boxing champion, is a searing, brutal, example of theater at its best. The direction by Lauren Warhol Caldwell and Ryan George is inspired. The movement direction by Rudi Goblen is magnificent as is the extraordinary ensemble cast of Bryce Michael Wood, E. Stanley Richardson, Renata Eastlick and Dylan Kammerer. The atmosphere, created by lighting designer Bob Robins, set designer Mihai Ciupe, costume designer Jessica Kreitzer and technical director Michael Eaddy is simple, beautiful and effective.

If you want a once-in-a lifetime experience that will leave you changed, inspired and uplifted by the sheer artistry of the event, “The Royale” is a knockout.

Mark Sexton, Alachua County
