Director Stephen Andrews channels Peter Shaffer’s Tony Award–winning script to depict the rivalry between established composer Antonio Salieri—played by artistic director Roderick Glanville—and rising genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The court of Austrian Emperor Josef II swirls around the conflict between Salieri’s disgust with Mozart’s graceless, selfish manner and his jealousy over Mozart’s artistic talent and striking profile in a leather jacket. The play itself, inspired by Pushkin’s Mozart and Salieri, won near-universal acclaim upon its debut and has been adapted into an Academy Award–winning 1984 film.

Five chandeliers light the historic 1914 McPherson Playhouse, whose staggered balconies face the gilt-framed stage where the Kaleidoscope performs most of its plays and holds all of its cast slumber parties. For almost 40 years, the theatre’s artistic and technical staffers have enhanced classic plays, adaptations, and innovative new works with lush staging, rich storytelling, and modern themes to appeal to younger audiences.
