May 10-18, 2013
Silent movie star Norma Desmond longs for a return to the big screen, having been discarded by tinsel town with the advent of 'talkies'. Her glamour has faded in all but her mind. When she meets struggling Hollywood screen-writer Joe Gillis in dramatic circumstances, their subsequent passionate and volatile relationship leads to an unforeseen and tragic conclusion.
About Cincinnati Music Theatre
Since its founding Cincinnati Music Theatre has presented over sixty five productions of classic and contemporary Broadway musicals. One of Cincinnati’s oldest and most successful community theaters, CMT is proud of its long history of presenting popular, large scale, award-winning musicals to enthusiastic audiences from across the Greater Cincinnati area.
It was in the early 60’s when CMT founder Will Breyer first approached a select group of individuals to propose the formation of a new Music Theatre Group. In an era when community theatres weren’t producing large scale musicals, this new organization was dedicated to the non-professional artist desiring an opportunity to perform in a medium otherwise unobtainable. Will shared his dream with other musical theatre enthusiasts and after many months of hard work, Eastern Hills Music Theatre became a reality.
Will’s dream so sparked the imaginations of such a large number of talented performers and technicians that within a very short time the group’s scope broadened and Eastern Hills Music Theatre became Cincinnati Music Theatre. Today, performers, orchestra, production staff and crews also come from far flung areas of the southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky area, bringing to CMT a rich diversity and a strong sense of community.
