Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis’ Urinetown is an outrageous musical fable of greed, corruption, love, revolution, and urination, set in a time when water is worth its weight in gold and there's no such thing as a free pee. In this near-future dystopian Gotham, a severe 20-year drought has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. Citizens are forced to use public “amenities” now, regulated by a single malevolent corporation that profits from one of humanity’s most basic needs. But from the ruins of Democracy and courtesy flushes, an unlikely hero floats to the top, who decides he's held it long enough, and he launches a People's Revolution to lead them all to urinary freedom! This 2001 neo musical comedy helped catapult American musical theatre into the new millennium, with its rule-shattering tear through the traditions and conventions of Broadway. New Line produced the show in 2007 to rave reviews.

Based on the book by Oliver Sacks, M.D.

Opera Theatre of Saint Louis presents the World Premiere of the New Performing Edition of the opera Harvey Milk by Stewart Wallace and Michael Korie, accompanied by members of the St. Louis Symphony.

Hope will never be silent.

Based on the true story of Harvey Milk, this opera delves into the tumultuous era of the 1970s to trace one young man’s rise to lead a movement. During his time as the “Mayor of Castro Street,” Harvey Milk fought for the rights of the disenfranchised…and paid the ultimate price for his work to advance those freedoms. Through Milk’s legacy, we are reminded that we are more united than divided, regardless of our background.

Co-commissioned by Opera Parallèle and Opera Theatre of Saint Louis.

All performances are sung in English with projected supertitles.

*EVERY 3RD WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH FROM 7:30 - 9:00 PM CT ON THE FOLK SCHOOL FACEBOOK PAGE*

Folk School is thrilled to partner with Patt & Possum (a.k.a Patt Plunkett and Charlie Walden) for a monthly online fiddle tunes session featuring Missouri and Midwestern repertoire.

All are welcome to join in these free sessions. Tune in on the Folk School Facebook page to join. Also multi-streamed at https://twitch.tv/bigfiddleshow and on YouTube at https://youtube.com/c/CharlieWalden

Fiddle Tune James are made possible with funding from the Missouri Arts Council.

About Patt & Possum:

Charlie Walden is among the major Missouri fiddle stylists of his generation. He learned his craft directly from the great Missouri fiddlers of the previous generation and cut his teeth at fiddle contests and square dances all over the state. His playing emphasizes clean noting, is highly melodic, and uses a direct and driving approach to bowing to generate rhythm for dancing. Charlie’s latest “claim to fame” is to have been the last fiddler standing at the Pembroke, ON, Pure Laine competition, not once, but twice, and the only non-Canadian fiddler ever to finish.

Charlie is ably assisted by his partner in music and life Patt Plunkett on keyboard. Patt is the “real” musician of the two. She has a master’s degree in vocal performance (that’s opera singing, by the way) and taught general music in Illinois public schools for almost 30 years. But traditional music is her real love having grown up hearing her grandfather playing the fiddle in rural Illinois. She’s led ceili bands, called square dances, and accompanied fiddlers in contests, jam sessions, and at dances.

At the start of “strange times” back in March 2020 Patt and Charlie started broadcasting nightly on YouTube mostly to friends, relatives, and neighbors and have added additional streams and events since. Be in the know and get on their mailing list. Send a message: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
