Ann Arbor Civic Theatre 85 years is a long time for any organization to be around. Ann Arbor Civic Theatre has accomplished that remarkable feat. We started in 1929 because of a strong desire by local Ann Arborites to find a creative outlet in theater with other like-minded people, and to forge new friendships. Known then as the Civic Amateur Theatre, the organization had the same challenges-getting members, finding places to rehearse and act, and getting the whole process under control by themselves without professional help. Despite these challenges, A2CT has had success, our membership and audiences have grown, and we continue to thrive because of the support of the individuals and businesses in Ann Arbor and the surrounding area. And our mission has remained the same: to offer opportunities to everyone in the community to participate in and to experience quality live theater. Please join us in celebrating our 85th year and help us continue the tradition! Lots of excitement awaits! -Joyce Casale Board of Directors Advisory Board Joyce Casale - President Rich Roselle - Vice President Charlie Cook - Treasurer Darrell Pierce - Secretary Fred Patterson - Treasurer Emeritus Laurie Atwood David Beaulieu Daisy Mull Steve Rubenstein David Widmayer Heather Wing Anne Bauman - Chair Leo Babcock John Eman Robert Green David Keren Deanna Relyea Judy Dow Rumelhart Ingrid Sheldon Gayle Steiner Cynthia Straub Keith Taylor Suzi Peterson ..........................................................Managing Director Cassie Mann ................................................. ..........

Wade Bob Skon Set Construction Patrick Johnson DIRECTOR'S NOTE First, I thank Ivan Menchell for his author's note from Bonnie & Clyde in our program. Second, I thank Frank Wildhorn for this remarkable Broadway score mixing pop with country and gospel he has created one of the strongest musical scores in many years. Third, I thank the entire cast, crew, and orchestra for taking this wonderful journey together, and doing it so well - in the middle of our cold Michigan winter, they took the time to brave the weather and share their time, energy, and talent with us. Creating Bonnie & Clyde has been an experience filled with firsts: collecting rifles and guns in my basement to the point that it looked like an arsenal. .. watching a Ford Roadster come together piece-by-piece over the past eight months and then watching the audience reaction when that car drives toward them ... "gun practice" that started in November under the direction of a police officer. .. just to name a few. This is as good a time as any to mention that all of the weapons, as real as they look, are replicas and they are entirely non-firing. Kids, please do not try this at home. Bonnie and Clyde hurt and killed many people on their way to their unhappy ending. - Ron Baumanis The Director-Choreographer is a member of U1e STAGE DIRECTORS AND CHOREOGRAPHERS SOOETY, a national theatrical labor union. AUTHOR'S NOTE At its core, this play is a fractured love story- a tragic romance. We have endeavored to capture who we believe these people really were - to explore not only their violent nature but also the passion, pain, fears and dreams that consumed them. Clyde had a penchant for mischief even as a young boy. Poverty made him a criminal. It was prison that turned him into a killer. As one inmate put it, "Clyde entered prison a school boy and left a rattle snake:' Bonnie, on the other hand, was motivated by an almost desperate need for attention and determination to escape the profound poverty of her life. Clyde met Bonnie when he was 20 and she was 19. What is fascinating and disturbing, given the scale of bloodshed for which they were responsible, is how deeply in love these two criminals were and how emotionally connected they were to their families. Contrary to popular depictions, in all our research we have found no indication that Clyde was bisexual, homosexual or impotent. It was the now classic Arthur Penn movie that introduced the idea of Clyde's impotence. It worked for the film and was a compelling contrast to his violent nature, but it wasn't true. Although Bonnie loved to pose for pictures with a gun in her hand and a cigar in her mouth, there was never conclusive proof that she killed anyone. In fact, many would argue that she never actually fired a gun. Her elementary school teacher described Bonnie as "a beautiful and obedient little girl and possessed seemingly a desire to do good and build for an ideal station in life. But like many others who fell victim to the wrong environments, and not for the lack of parental training, this should be a lesson to young girls and boys. They should strive to gain the highest badge of honor for themselves and their country:' Bonnie and Clyde's legend was born from the dusty hard times of the 1930s. They lashed out in an era when big business and slick politicians tried to appease the suffering with shallow promises while simultaneously handing out foreclosure notices and directions to the nearest soup kitchen. It was a time in our nation's history when an upturn in the economy and a fair shot at a fulfilling life seemed as distant as the promise of the American Dream. It was a time when desperation and love combined to create the most notorious couple this country has ever known. - Ivan Menchell MAYBE QUESTIONING THE NORM SHOULD BE THE NEW NORM. Every time a bar gets raised, a record gets broken, or a new star shines, it's because somebody was curious. Wondering how high they could reach. How much they could do. As a proud supporter of the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre, we applaud that. Questioning everything makes anything possible. Fift h Third Bank. Member FDIC. FIF"TH THIRD BANK The curious bank."
