ICCT’s 59th Season (2014-2015)


September 19-28  Directed by Josh Sazon with Musical Direction by Ed Kottick.  In this timeless tale, two New Yorkers accidently discover a magical village that comes to life for one day every one hundred years. They meet delightful people in the midst of wedding preparations, buying and selling from the Fair. Although the town is surreal, the residents are not; their hopes and dreams speak to us as clearly as any contemporary setting. Amidst beautiful music, Scottish dancing, and clever dialog, and a tear or two, you will believe that miracles can happen.


Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

October 31-November 9  Directed by Brett Borden.   One of Tennessee Williams’s best-known works and his personal favorite, is set in the “plantation home in the Mississippi Delta” of Big Daddy Pollitt, a wealthy cotton tycoon. The play examines the relationships among members of Big Daddy’s family, primarily between his son Brick and Maggie the “Cat”, Brick’s wife; examining the conflict between truth and illusion. Winner of the 1955 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.


Camo! The Musical

December 5-7 and 12-14  Directed by Krista Neuman and Janet Schlapkohl.  A musical collaboration with Combined Efforts Theatre (CET). CET is Iowa’s only theatre company whose mission is to purposefully include performers with disabilities. CET is dedicated to excellence where disability drops from consideration. CET enriches the artistic community of Iowa City by presenting compelling and entertaining performances.


Love & Marriage

January 16-25  Supervising Director: Rich Riggleman.  A collection of four one-act plays showing the funnier sides of love and marriage.  The Proposal (directed by Christina Patramanis), a Chekhov play about a hypochondriac who tries to propose to his neighbor’s daughter and ends up with all of them getting into arguments.  Bridal Terrorism (directed by Nate Sullivan), a woman shows up in a park in a wedding dress looking for a groom.  Laundry & Bourbon (directed by Jen Brown), three women share gossip and their disappointment with their marriages.  I’m Herbert (directed by Katherine Boothroyd), a conversation between an elderly couple with memory problems who tries to remember their former relationships.


The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

February 27-March 8  Directed by Ken Van Egdon with Musical Direction by Wes Habley.  A musical about six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser. A 2005 Broadway hit and winner of 2 Tony Awards.


The Man Who Came To Dinner

April 24-May 3  Directed by Jaret Morlan with Musical Direction by Jessica Palmer.  Two one act musicals take varied looks at romance seekers. The first is a delightful romp through the sexual ennui of turn of the century Vienna based on Schnitzler’s taleThe Little Comedy. Act 2 is a modern look at affection and disaffection in a two couple summer house in the Hamptons based on the Jules Renard play Summer Share. An Off Off Broadway sensation that successfully moved to Broadway, Romance/Romance is a perfect change from the modern mega musical.
