SALUTE TO THE ARTS
SEASON 11
Dear THCA Patron,
As Executive Director of the Thrasher-Horne
Center for the Arts, it gives me great pleasure
to announce the season that ushers in the
next decade for this wonderful cultural arts
facility. This 11th season is filled with exciting
and engaging performances that will make
your experience at the THCA as entertaining
and enriching as possible.
Opening our season on a high musical note is
the return of the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra. Included in our season are Broadway
musicals, concerts, dance performances and
theatrical dramatic offerings.
4
In February, the THCA is excited to present
dance week. Beginning with the return performance of a THCA audience
favorite, the Russian National Ballet Theatre in Don Quixote, dance week
continues with community residency and outreach activities conducted by
the acclaimed Eisenhower Dance Company. Their Motown In Motion performance will conclude dance week with a cameo appearance featuring community performers. Performances by Tango Buenos Aires and the Koresh
Dance Company make this a notable season for THCA audiences to fall in love
with the art of dance!
In the Studio Theatre we welcome back some of the THCA’s favorite performers. Fans of classical music will enjoy these relaxing Sunday afternoon
concerts including Donna Wissinger, Ayako Yonetani, Stephen Robinson and
select ensembles from the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra.
A personal highlight for this season is the American Solider exhibition. For
residents and visitors to Clay County, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
to view this internationally renowned photographic exhibit. In creating a true
cultural arts experience, I have selected several main stage performances that
honor not only our military service men and women, but also their families.
15
As your Executive Director for the first decade, it has been both my duty and
privilege to steward the THCA and remain true to our mission of providing
the very best of the cultural arts to the citizens, students and visitors of Clay
County and Northeast Florida. I will forever be indebted to the vision of St.
Johns River State College President Emeritus Dr. Robert L. McLendon and the
College Board of Trustees.
Now my tenure as the THCA Executive Director ends … and my beginning as a
THCA patron begins. It gives me GREAT pleasure to know that I will be seated in
the audience with you, enjoying and experiencing the next decade of growth and
excitement that will be . . . the Thrasher-Horne Center for the Arts!

new, intriguing musical twists in such Great American Songbook classics as “The Good Life,” “The Folks Who Live on the Hill,” “Call Me,”
“Born to be Blue,” “I Won’t Dance” and, of course, the title track. As
if that wasn’t enough, he also takes his listeners on adventurous new
journeys through contemporary songs from the likes of Paul Simon,

LETTERS HOME
SAT URD AY , N OVEMBER 22 – 7:3 0 P . M.
Tickets starting at $15.00
While attending this performance, please make
your plans to allow time to visit The American
Soldier exhibit located in the THCA galleries.
Letters Home puts the current wars in Afghanistan and Iraq front and center by bringing to life
actual letters written by soldiers serving in the
Middle East. The play gives audiences a powerful portrait of the soldier experience. Although
the title of the play implies that all the letters are
from soldiers, the piece includes a small number
of correspondences from parents - their words
being no less important.
These letters were written under the most difficult of circumstances; the disorientation of training, deployment, separation from family and
loved ones, and combat and occupation duties
in Afghanistan and Iraq. They help define for the
audience patriotism, and what it means to serve
our country today, through acts of bravery, compassion, social responsibility, sense of community and brotherhood. Collectively the production
gives a voice to a generation that went to war
against terror in Afghanistan and in Iraq. More
importantly, the play reveals the humanity that
lies within the war as seen through the eyes of
the men and women fighting it.

talented performing pets. It’s a show that both

T UE SD AY , JA N UA RY 27 - 7:3 0 P . M.
Tickets starting at $24.00
Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, this oddball romantic comedy - considered by many to be the perfect musical
comedy - soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who have become legends in the
canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight “mission doll” out to reform the evildoers of Times Square; Sky Masterson, the
slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically-ill nightclub performer
whose condition is brought on by the fact she’s been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted
fiance, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game.

Karen give parents of all ages a chance to laugh at the trials and tribulations of parenthood, marriage, family and everyday life
in America. Parents Night Out is clean comedy for grownups.

Dressed as a 19th century performer and using period musical instruments, Bobby explores the stories of both the North and South through
the music they loved. Each song is placed in context with historical
background and portrays the struggles, hopes and fears of Americans
during this long and bloody conflict. These songs and stories tell of
sweethearts and families left behind, fallen comrades, the hope of going home, and the pride, bravery and patriotism of the volunteers who
answered their country’s call. This is not just a performance for Civil
War buffs, but for anyone who loves great music, inspired storytelling,
and an evening of unforgettable entertainment.

DANCE WEEK
RUSSIAN NATIONAL BALLET THEATRE: DON QUIXOTE
SU N DAY, F E BR UA R Y 22 – 7: 00 P.M.
Tickets starting at $16.00
Based on an episode from Miguel de Cervantes’ famous novel,
Don Quixote de la Mancha, the story follows its title hero, a
middle-aged country gentleman absorbed with tales of chivalry, who sets out to defend virtue and punish those who violate the code of honor. With his servant Sancho Panza as his
armor-bearer, he travels to Barcelona, only to mistake Kitri,
an innkeeper’s daughter who is in love with a barber, for his
dream-lover Dulcinea. A dance-packed feast of comedy, drama, romance, intrigue, betrayal and fantasy, Minkus’ rousing
18
14
score endows each scene with rich atmosphere. The Russian
National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during the
transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s, when many
of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Union’s
ballet institutions were exercising their new-found creative
freedom by starting new, vibrant companies dedicated not
only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet, but to
invigorate this tradition as the Russians began to accept new
developments in the dance from around the world.
EISENHOWER DANCE: MOTOWN IN MOTION
SAT URD AY , FEBR UA RY 2 8 – 7:3 0 P . M.

Robinson, Michael Jackson, The Supremes and Stevie Wonder. You’ll also be treated to some of the company’s most celebrated works
from their diverse repertory. This performance is sure to have you dancing in your seat and out into the street!

THE AMERICAN SOLDIER - A PHOTOGRAPHIC TRIBUTE
THE AMERICAN SOLDIER, A Photographic Tribute from the Civil War to the War in Iraq, is the first exhibition of its kind ever
mounted. The idea for the exhibition dates to 1995, when curator Cyma Rubin was inspired by a photograph of a World War II
G.I. that appeared on the cover of the New York Times Magazine. In examining more than 4,000 photographs covering nearly
150 years of American military history, the exhibition focuses on
the real lives of American soldiers - Army troops and Marines through the nine major wars in which America has fought since
1861. One hundred sixteen photographs were chosen - many of
them not widely seen before-that tell the story of American soldiers’ camaraderie, courage, humor and sacrifice.
The greatly enlarged photographs provide an up-close view of
our servicemen and women soldiering. The exhibition is both
commemorative and educational, giving children and young
adults a vivid picture of just how much today’s soldiers and
their predecessors have given us.
Additionally, THE AMERICAN SOLDIER, A Photographic Tribute
from the Civil War to the War in Iraq, celebrates the contributions made by photojournalists who risk danger at the frontlines, and without whose work we could not experience these
moments of history.
It opened in 2007 and is exhibited in Presidential libraries, museums, historical centers, universities, and convention centers
throughout the United States, with more than 1 million visitors
to date.
Curator Cyma Rubin is a Tony and Emmy award producer, director, writer and president of Business of Entertainment Inc.
Among her Broadway producing credits is the award-winning
smash-hit revival of “No, No, Nanette”, which received six Tony
nominations and won four Tony Awards. She produced educational programs for Pepsi, CBS Movies-of-the-Week and documentaries for Japanese television. She won the Emmy for best
documentary for her production: “Moment of Impact: Stories of
the Pulitzer Prize Photographs.”

super scientific circus
$8.00 - Approximate running time for this performance is 60 minutes.
Thursday, October 16 - 10:15 a.m.
Super Scientific Circus uses engaging characters and outrageous stunts,
combined with fun audience participation, amusing circus skills and magic
tricks to demonstrate scientific concepts. Starring Mr. Fish and Trent the
Mime, Super Scientific Circus proves that science can be fun. Alternately
assisted and foiled by the comedic antics of Trent the Mime, Mr. Fish uses
amazing circus skills involving boomerangs, bubbles, beach balls, bull whips
and magic to introduce the principles of friction, inertia, centripetal force,
aerodynamics, sonic booms, air pressure and ultraviolet light.
Stanley Lambchop is just like everyone
else. That’s the problem. For Stanley, life is
TOO normal. Determined to do something
amazing, something no one’s ever seen before, he makes a wish on a falling star. That
night, the bulletin board on the wall above
Stanley’s bed comes loose and falls - right
on top of him. The next morning, Stanley
Lambchop wakes up flat. Not just a little flat... really, really flat! Thus begins his
new life and an unexpected quest to see the world, which comes surprisingly
easy when you can travel through the mail as a letter! Along the way, Stanley
thwarts a robbery at the Louvre Museum in Paris and surfs off the coast of Hawaii. He’s stamped, posted and cancelled from Hollywood to France to Honolulu and beyond. Once Stanley realizes that great adventures aren’t as special
without his family around to share them, he becomes a three-dimensional boy
once again and learns that heroes come in all shapes and sizes.
