"Chess" opens August 20th!

Up next, Stowe Theatre Guild presents "Chess."

"Chess" features music by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, formerly of ABBA, and lyrics by Tim Rice.
The story involves a politically driven Cold War-era chess tournament between two men — an American grandmaster and a Soviet grandmaster — and their fight over a woman who manages one and falls in love with the other.
The production is directed by Ian Ferris, with music direction by Nate Venet, choreography by Brad Enos and visual design by Shawn Patrick Rice.
You do not want to miss this fast-paced, drama-driven extravaganza with original multi-media elements never seen before on the Stowe stage!

Show dates are Thursday to Saturday, Aug. 20-22 and 27-29,  and Sept. 3-5 at 8 p.m., with matinees on Saturday, Aug. 22 and 29, and Sept. 5 at 2 p.m.

Thursday August 20, 2015 to Saturday September 5, 2015 Chess is used as a metaphor for romantic rivalries and the US-Soviet rivalry during the Cold War of the 1980s. The story involves two chess grandmasters, an American and a Soviet, fighting over a woman who manages one and falls in love with the other—all in the context of a politically charged, Cold War-era tournament between the two men.
