The “mad” knight Don Quixote comes to southern New Hampshire with memorable songs and a powerful tale of hope and disillusionment.  The students of High Mowing School present the musical Man of La Mancha!  Performances take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 26, 27 and 28 at 7:00 pm at the Pine Hill Waldorf School Auditorium on Abbot Hill Rd in Wilton.  Tickets are $12 adults/$8 students & seniors, and available at the door.  Call 654-2391 or visit www.highmowing.org/manoflamancha for further information. Please note that some scenes are unsuitable for younger children.

Don Quixote, of windmill fame, spends his time trying to right all the wrongs in the world with the help of his squire Sancho Panza. The main character, Cervantes, tells his tale to his fellow prisoners—passing the time as they anxiously await interrogation by an authoritarian regime. It is a play within a play, dealing with hope and disillusionment, accompanied by a stirring musical score. It showcases some of the greatest Broadway tunes of all time, including “I, Don Quixote” and “The Impossible Dream.”  

Man of La Mancha was written by Dale Wasserman, music by Mitch Leigh and lyrics by Joe Darion.  Its produced by arrangement with, and music and dialogue materials furnished by: Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc., 560 Lexington Ave., New York, NY 10022.
