For Immediate Release – April 10, 2019
May 3-5; 8-12
Garden City, NY – The Nassau Community College Department of Theatre and Dance will present the musical The Apple Tree May 3 through 5 and 8 through 12 at the Mainstage Theatre.
The Tony Award-winning musical The Apple Tree explores the ongoing struggles and temptations of men and women with three comedic vignettes. “The Diary of Adam and Eve” is a quirky, touching spin on the tale of the world’s first couple, adapted from Mark Twain’s Extracts from Adam’s Diary. “The Lady or the Tiger?” is a rock and roll fable set in a mythical barbarian kingdom, which explores the fickleness of love. “Passionella” is based on Jules Feiffer’s offbeat Cinderella story about a chimney sweep whose dreams of being a “glamorous movie star” nearly sabotage her one chance for true love. The Apple Tree’s music is by Jerry Bock. Its lyrics are by Sheldon Harnick and its book is by Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock.
The Apple Tree will be performed at 8:00 p.m. Sunday matinee shows begin at 2:00 p.m. Tickets cost $15.00 per person, $12.00 for seniors 55 and over, high school students and veterans. Tickets are free for college students with a valid I.D. Wednesday through Friday ($5.00 Saturday and Sunday). For more information or to order tickets, call 516.572.7676 Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
