Osceola Arts will kick off its spring show season with the musical big-business satirical comedy How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, beginning Friday and running through March 15.
Tickets start at $25, with senior, student and group discounts available. Showtimes are at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. on Sundays, with a 2 p.m. matinee on March 14.
The musical is based on Shepherd Mead’s 1952 book of the same name, in which window washer J. Pierrepont Finch finds a book that details how to flourish in business with almost no effort. While following the directions in the book he quickly climbs the corporate ladder. But when a love interest enters the picture, he must decide if his new success is worth it.
The show is directed by Michelle Alagna and Christopher Robinson and features a cast of talented men and women ready to bring this classic production to life.
In addition to the show, Osceola Arts is now also home to three new visual arts exhibits that are free and open to the public.. Celebrating Black History Month, Our Story, an exhibition provided by Bronze Kingdom, represents an important spectrum of African bronze, beaded, and wood sculptures from all over the continent including Nigeria, Cameroon, Mali, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Senegal, and The Democratic Republic of the Congo. The exhibit will be on display in the Main Gallery through March 29.
Local artist Michelle Irizarry will be featured in the Studio Gallery from Saturday through April 24. She is especially sensitive to environmental causes, and water, human suffering and overcoming adversity are common themes in her artwork.
Additionally, The Juried Art Show, celebrating the diversity of Florida artists, opens Saturday and runs through April 5. An artist reception will be held Saturday from 2-5 p.m.
