The Kitchen Theatre Company (KTC) presents its second show of the 2018-19 Season: The Piano Teacher by Julia Cho, a play the New York Times called "A cozy, effective little chiller." The Piano Teacher is a haunting story of elusive truths that explores the power of memory-both those we recall and those we've chosen to forget. Performances of The Piano Teacher begin at the Kitchen Theatre Company in the Percy Browning Performance Space on October 21st and run through November 4th. Opening night is Thursday, October 25th.

The play centers on Mrs. K, a woman who has retired after teaching piano in her living room for 30 years. Alone and curious about what became of the children she once saw weekly, Mrs. K picks up the phone, calling former students in the hopes they'll come for a visit and a cookie. When a former prodigy arrives at her doorstep, the memories of happy afternoons by the piano quickly unravel in the face of a truth darker than anything she could have imagined.

Ashtabula & Phlemena Fitz&Startz have been teaching young people for decades. Focused on the classics, all their proteges know the great composers, their basic ballet steps and sing harmonies with gusto. But this year's group of middle schoolers would like to add some more contemporary music to the Annual Autumn Celebration. How does the 'age versus youth, old versus new' argument get sorted out? In A Case for the Classics all generations must learn from each other to be sure that "show must go on!" It's a music, dance and song-filled event for the whole family.
