Patriotic Revue

Patriotic Revue

Date: July 4, 2020

The annual Patriotic Revue Scholarship Fundraiser is a whiz bang firecracker of a show to put you in the patriotic spirit. The free 30 minute show will be performed every hour 11 am – 3 pm. The show is created new every year and features a variety of songs and performers. This year’s production includes crowd pleasers “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “God Bless the USA” and a moving choral arrangement of “The Star Spangled Banner.” The cast includes some of the older Summer Theatre Institute participants. If you can’t join us in person, you may stream it live at any scheduled performance during the day at https://highlandslakesidetheatre.org/live-stream/.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be limited seating capacity, a limited menu, restricted access and no gathering inside between shows. Food and refreshment sales, the 50/50 drawing, and donations collected throughout the day all benefit the scholarship fund. The goal this year is $7500. All donations are gratefully appreciated.

There are several scholarship opportunities for our members including degree programs, continuing education workshops, and theatre camp tuition. In the past year alone HLT has awarded over 15 scholarships to help our members grow their craft. We rely on this event to fund those awards for the upcoming year.

“It is the moment you’re frightened that life is real.”  The Addams Family is a story of a monster family whose lives are changed by a romance with a Midwesterner.  As expected, The Addams Family is based on the old Addams Family TV show and the 1990’s films. Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Fester, Lurch and the whole family, dead or undead, are back, including an older Wednesday Addams who believes she has fallen in love with a young man, Lucas, from Ohio.  In stark contrast to the Addams’ interesting lifestyle, Lucas and his family are the epitome of a middle class, mid-American family. This “creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky” production has fathomless energy and hundreds of laughs to tickle your funny bone— be it still attached to your body or buried out back in the family crypt. When you’re an Addams, you move toward the darkness, welcome the unknown and lose your inhibitions.  Come become an Addams for a couple of hours of fun. 

Book by MARSHALL BRICKMAN and RICK ELICE Music and Lyrics by ANDREW LIPPA. Based on characters created by Charles Addams. Produced by special arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide.
