Klein Oak Theatre presents The Yellow Boat at 7 pm April 13 & 14 in the Klein Oak Black Box Theatre. Tickets are $5 general admission, available at the door.

A Scandinavian folksong tells of three little boats: “One was blue, one was red, and one was yellow as the sun. They sailed far out to sea. The blue one returned to the harbor. The red one sailed home too. But the yellow boat sailed up to the sun.” Benjamin always concluded his bedtime ritual by saying, “Mom, you can be the red boat or the blue boat, but I am the yellow boat.” This remarkable voyage of Benjamin was extensively developed and widely produced in America for several years, always to ovations.

The Yellow Boat is based on the true story of David and Sonja Saar’s son, Benjamin, who was born with congenital hemophilia, and died in 1987 at the age of 8 of AIDS related complications. A uniquely gifted visual artist, Benjamin’s buoyant imagination transformed his physical and emotional pain into a blaze of colors and shapes in his fanciful drawings and paintings. The story of The Yellow Boat is a glorious affirmation of a child’s life, and the strength and courage of all children. Recommended for children of age 8 and older, parents, families and adults.

GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS: $10, available at the Theatre Box Office 45 minutes prior to the show.

Rehearsal for Murder , based on the hit television play by Richard Levinson and William Link, adapted for the stage by D.D. Brooke. This is a thrilling “theatrical” mystery in which your theatre becomes the set for the play. The playwright turns on the stage work light and prepares for the first reading of his new play. The actors, producer, director, and others connected with the show come onto the stage, and under their humorous (and utterly real) theatrical talk, tension grows.

How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying

Power, ambition, greed…. It’s just another day at the office.

Noises Off! is a play within a play about a play. When the curtain goes up in Act One, we see what we believe is the start of a traditional farce called Nothing On . Then a voice bellows from the back of the house. It is the frustrated director trying to get a second rate acting troupe in a bad play through a disastrous technical rehearsal. After Act 1, the set rotates to show the same play from backstage. The play hasn’t gotten any better, but relations between the cast members have deteriorated into absolute bedlam involving love triangles, hidden bottles of whiskey and sardines.

Plan to visit an outrageous world behind the scenes as Klein Oak Theatre brings you the pandemonium of Noises Off, September 23, 24 & 26.

Written by Michael Frayn

Performed through special arrangement with Samuel French.
Performances: September 23, 24 & 26 at 7:00 PM

Tickets:  $5.00, Cash or Check, One Hour Before Curtain
