In 1788 Australia's first penal colony opened sending criminals from Britain into exile for "our country's good." Timberlake Wertenbaker's play is based on Australian author Thomas Keneally’s novel The Playmaker, which in turn was based by a real production of The Recruiting Officer staged by convicts. It won the 1988 BBC Award for the Play of the Year and was the 1991 Tony's nominee for Best Play. This drama’s witty play-within-a-play presents a vibrant argument for the power of theater to transform, inspire and break down barriers of all kinds.

Jackie Evancho’s first performance on NBC’s variety show America’s Got Talent left audiences and judges astonished that such a perfect, beautiful, soprano voice could come from a 10 year-old girl. It wasn’t just her musical gift and her age that floored the audience, but Jackie’s presence, poise and charm that truly made them take notice. The young soprano from Pittsburgh with the stunning voice won runner-up and launched her soon-to-be legendary career, signing with Columbia Records shortly thereafter. In a little over two years, Jackie’s unique, gorgeous, soprano voice has won her millions of fans and her recordings have dominated the music and DVD charts. Now 14, Jackie has garnered the support of legendary music producers like David Foster and filmmakers such as Robert Redford. Billboard Magazine named Jackie to their list of music movers-and-shakers under the age of 21 in 2011 and again in 2012 because the soprano’s “spellbinding, operatic vocals possess a power and poignancy that often moves listeners multiple times her age to tears.” Jackie is currently touring with orchestra in support of her third studio album, “Awakening.”
