AMON! THE ULTIMATE TEXAN
July 16 – 18, 2021
By Dave Lieber
Amon Carter, Jr., was generous, wealthy, friend of Presidents, and an eccentric. His loyalty to his hometown Fort Worth prompted him to compete with neighboring Dallas. Legend has it that when he had to attend a function in Big D, he would eat from his own sack lunch so that he didn’t have to consume Dallas food. Out of respect for his preference not to walk the streets of Dallas, this play is not performed within the Dallas city limits, and Theatre Coppell is proud to produce this show for the first time in Dallas County.
RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN'S CINDERELLA
July 30 – August 15, 2021
Music by Richard Rodgers; book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Cinderella, treated like a slave by her stepmother and stepsisters, is paid a visit by her Fairy Godmother, who shows her that anything is possible. With a sweep of the Godmother’s magic wand, Cinderella is aided to go to the Prince’s ball in a gorgeous gown in a golden carriage pulled by transformed mice. When the clock strikes twelve, Cinderella’s magic is fading when she must escape the castle, leaving her glass slipper behind. In a kingdom-wide search, the Prince finally locates her and, of course, there is a happy ending. This spectacular new Broadway musical revives the popular songs “In My Own Little Corner” and “Impossible,” plus a host of other fabled tunes.

The true story of Helen Keller – blind, deaf, and mute – is a study of how children learn language. But, in addition, it is about perseverance and stubbornness as Helen’s teacher Annie Sullivan never gives up on the girl’s potential to live a full life, even when others are content to give up. In this play, we see that Annie is Helen’s salvation and, likewise, Helen is Annie’s life-long self-redemption.

George Bailey has so many problems he is thinking about ending it all - and it’s Christmas! As the angels discuss George, we see his life in flashback. As George is about to jump from a bridge, he ends up rescuing his guardian angel, Clarence, who then shows George what his town would have looked like if it hadn’t been for all his good deeds over the years. At the happy end, George’s young daughter reveals that “Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.” The perfect holiday show – classic, almost tragic, but uplifting, and happy.
