CHARACTER INFO:
BARRY (Male, Mid 30’s) – A lawyer. His philosophy is best summed up in the words of Walt Kelly: “Don’t take life too serious, it ain’t nohow permanent.” Barry is a joker, prankster, and full of love of life. How much of this is a façade for his true feelings is uncertain.

JEFF (Male, Mid 30’s) – A stockbroker. Financially comfortable if not well-to-do, but restless and slightly aimless. Keeps asking himself “is that all there is?” Is jarred by the deaths of Mark and Hank to do something drastic to find purpose in his life.

GABRIELLE (Female, late 20’s to mid 30’s) – British with a distinct accent only slightly tempered by years in the States. Married to Don. Relative latecomer to the circle of friends but accepted by the others as if she has been there since day one. Has just found out she is pregnant, which is leading to a major change in both her and Don’s life.

AMY (Female, early 30’s) is sort of the glue that holds the circle together. Gregarious but never loud. Caring, sometimes too much. Some of her secrets get revealed over the course of the play, changing the way some see her.

DON (Male, Mid 30’s) – Gabrielle’s husband. Creative type. Ill at ease in formal situations like funerals. Is afraid of change, which is a major problem considering what he and Gabby have in mind, and have kept a secret from the others.

TOMMY (Male, early 20’s to early 30’) – The younger brother of Hank, a member of the circle that the other friends have not seen in a while. Bipolar with other possibly undiagnosed conditions. Over the years he has become the honorary kid brother of everyone in the group. And he will need them because unbeknownst to most of the group, Hank is dying of cancer.

FRAN (Woman, mid 60’s or older) – A Professional Mourner.

MINISTER (Either, indeterminate age) – A disinterested eulogist.

SINGER/MUSICIAN (Either, any age) – A very poor singer and/or musician

Sal Andolina & BPO Musicians at St. Bonaventure @ Rigas Family Theater
Mar 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Sal Andolina & BPO Musicians at St. Bonaventure @ Rigas Family Theater

Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra clarinetist and saxophonist Sal Andolina will be accompanied by six of his BPO colleagues when he returns to St. Bonaventure University Monday, March 25, for an evening performance as part of the university’s Martine Performing Arts Series.

The concert, “Sal Andolina’s Mixed Bag,” will be presented at 7 p.m. in Rigas Theater of the university’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts. Admission is free for St. Bonaventure students and employees. For others, a limited number of $5 general admission tickets are available and may be purchased by calling the Quick Center at (716) 375-2494.

“Our audiences have been treated to the virtuosity of Sal Andolina over the past couple of seasons, in concerts featuring jazz as well as French and Italian café music,” said Dr. Les Sabina, professor of music and chair of the university’s Department of Visual and Performing Arts, which plans and executes the annual Martine series. “Now, we will hear him in a classically influenced chamber music setting, where his clarinet will really shine.”

The concert will include works for string quartet, piano, flute and piano, and clarinet sextet, by composers as varied as Scott Joplin, Mozart, Aaron Copland and Dick Hyman.

Other BPO musicians joining Andolina on stage include violinists Diana Sachs and Alan Ross, Valerie Heywood on viola, cellist David Schmude, flutist Christine Davis, and pianist Claudia Hoca.

“I asked Sal to bring along some of his favorite colleagues who enjoy presenting accessible music,” said Sabina. “Sal put this program together to present instruments in different settings, playing pieces from different genres and to showcase some great BPO musicians. This concert will feature a number of fairly short compositions, pieces that will immediately grab the listener’s attention and illustrate the variety of chamber music repertoire that is available.”

The Martine Performing Arts Series is dedicated to expanding the arts curriculum beyond the classroom walls and bringing many different types of musical genres to campus and the community. The series is funded by a grant from the James J. Martine Faculty Development Endowment. Named after a longtime former English professor, the endowment funds activities designed to improve the quality of teaching and learning within the core curriculum at St. Bonaventure.

Next up in the 2018-2019 Martine series is a presentation of “El Quijote” by the New York City-based theater company Repertorio Espanol at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 10, at the Quick Center’s Rigas Theater. Presented in Spanish with English superscript, the presentation is an adaptation of Miguel de Cervantes’ epic novel that follows the misadventures of Don Quijote and his loyal squire, Sancho Panza. The performance is free to the campus community, with a limited number of tickets available to the general public at $5 each.
