Inspired by earlier works, Rossini borrows his own themes to compose the Overture to The Barber of Seville, his most popular work. Saint-Saëns’ The Carnival of the Animals was an exercise written purely for fun, the composer’s reflection on 13 different creatures. Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 captures the pathos of “passion, violence and grief” found in some of his best work. Monterey Symphony is honored to welcome pianist Heidi Hau to our stage again this Season joined by pianist William Wellborn. Max Bragado-Darman, conductor Heidi Hau, piano (primo) William Wellborn, piano (secundo) Gioachino Rossini – Overture, The Barber of Seville Camille Saint-Saëns – The Carnival of the Animals Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Symphony No. 40, KV 550, G minor

Jesus Hates Me"
Producer Koly McBride Says:
“Jesus Hates Me” represents what we do best; edgy theatre. We felt this show, chosen and directed by the talented Kirsten Clapp, was perfect for our mainstage at Hoffman. This is a funny, yet at times, thorny play that we know our audiences will enjoy. Also, we are happy to welcome back Kirsten to the directors seat. She directed “Bug” by Tracy Letts in 2011 to sold out houses and as you may know, was the owner and creator of the former “Stardust Playhouse” which now houses Paper Wing Theatre, FREMONT.
This play represents small town USA, certainly not in the way you would think, but life in a town that can offer no incentive for young people to stay. The main character represents a struggle against the defeat that staying in the town he was born in would most likely bring. He has seen a glimpse of life outside, and he craves more. The people around him can only remind him of what he truly desires and in the end, he must make a choice. I think this play speaks the truth, albeit comically, about struggling to break away.”
Synopsis:
An off kilter comedy that takes a hard look at life in a small Texas town.
Ethan, is an ex-high school football star who blew out his knee during a big game and, with it, his one chance for a life beyond his birthplace. His devoutly religious mom, runs the “Blood of the Lamb” miniature golf course, using mannequins from Wal-Mart dressed up to look like Bible figures. Annie’s mood swings keep Ethan feeling guilty – a fact Annie uses to keep him from ever leaving her. In episodic fashion, “Jesus” follows Ethan and his “hick” friends over several days as he prepares to move to Colorado.
Photo Synopsis:
“Ethan, a 20-year-old high school football star, returns home to his humble roots and high school girlfriend after a bum knee ruins his stardom.”

Jesus Hates Me"
Producer Koly McBride Says:
“Jesus Hates Me” represents what we do best; edgy theatre. We felt this show, chosen and directed by the talented Kirsten Clapp, was perfect for our mainstage at Hoffman. This is a funny, yet at times, thorny play that we know our audiences will enjoy. Also, we are happy to welcome back Kirsten to the directors seat. She directed “Bug” by Tracy Letts in 2011 to sold out houses and as you may know, was the owner and creator of the former “Stardust Playhouse” which now houses Paper Wing Theatre, FREMONT.
This play represents small town USA, certainly not in the way you would think, but life in a town that can offer no incentive for young people to stay. The main character represents a struggle against the defeat that staying in the town he was born in would most likely bring. He has seen a glimpse of life outside, and he craves more. The people around him can only remind him of what he truly desires and in the end, he must make a choice. I think this play speaks the truth, albeit comically, about struggling to break away.”
Synopsis:
An off kilter comedy that takes a hard look at life in a small Texas town.
Ethan, is an ex-high school football star who blew out his knee during a big game and, with it, his one chance for a life beyond his birthplace. His devoutly religious mom, runs the “Blood of the Lamb” miniature golf course, using mannequins from Wal-Mart dressed up to look like Bible figures. Annie’s mood swings keep Ethan feeling guilty – a fact Annie uses to keep him from ever leaving her. In episodic fashion, “Jesus” follows Ethan and his “hick” friends over several days as he prepares to move to Colorado.
Photo Synopsis:
“Ethan, a 20-year-old high school football star, returns home to his humble roots and high school girlfriend after a bum knee ruins his stardom.”
