The Simon & Garfunkel Story
Using huge projection photos and original film footage, this show features a full live band performing all the hits. The immersive concert-style show chronicles the amazing journey shared by the folk-rock duo, from their humble beginnings as Tom & Jerry to their incredible success as one of the best-selling music groups of the ’60s to their dramatic split in 1970. It culminates with the famous “The Concert in Central Park” reunion in 1981 with more than half a million fans in attendance.

Anton Coppola’s Lady Swanwhite
Princess Swanwhite must marry the King. But, when he sends the Prince to school her on the demands of being Queen, the youngsters fall for each other’s charms – and into each other’s arms. Fleeing the King’s wrath, the Prince escapes in a boat, but when all is forgiven, he must swim back to Swanwhite in a storm. This is where their fairy tale ends. Or is it? Swanwhite’s faith in the power of love may have the power to save her Prince as Opera Tampa presents the world premiere of Anton Coppola’s latest work, the intimate chamber opera Lady Swanwhite.

Ready Steady Yeti Go
This play is charming and funny with a sharp edge of heartbreaking truth. It’s clever, moving and ingenious. It takes on our assumptions about people’s character and the painful sacrifices we make for love and family. At its heart though, it is an uplifting story about young star-crossed lovers wrapped in a comedy wrapped in a satire with a healthy streak of political commentary.
Begins 3pm
Stageworks Theatre
