The Richard Project December 10-15
Conceived and Directed by : Owen Horsley

This version of Shakespeare’s famous History Cycle has a clear point of view. It is all about Richard III. As he sits on his throne he decides to tell his version of the story and why, after years of injustice, war and personal politics, he is a deserving King. He leaves it up to us if we agree with his spin or not. Is there anything we can learn from his story? And how did history itself lead to his inevitable rise to the throne?

This Season's Past Shows


Ghosts December 3-6
By: Henrik Ibsen
Directed by: Jonathan Bolt
Translated By: Michael Meyer

This riveting family drama is a classic of the modern theatre; a play so controversial in its time that even the head of Nya Teatern, one of Stockholm's major theatres, called it "one of the filthiest things ever written in Scandinavia." Once the uproar had died down, audiences proved far more receptive to Ghosts than the literati had initially been, and while its dramatic subjects of promiscuity, incest and sexually transmitted disease no longer arouse the feverish denunciations of Ibsen's time, their treatment retains the power that has made the play a masterpiece of Western literature.

Star-Spangled: A New Musical November 1-3
Written and Directed by: Douglas Carter Beane
Music and Lyrics: Lewis Flinn
Choreography: Joey Pizzi

It’s the Summer of 1972, and the college-aged "Star-Spangled Singers" are at the top of their game. They’ve kissed performing at local Kiwanis Clubs and VFW Halls goodbye and are now singing and dancing their patriotic show choir routines for Bob Hope and President Nixon! But, in America, change is afoot! It's “Up with People” in the age of Watergate. Can everything be sorted out in time for the bicentennial?

Once in a Lifetime September 18-23
By: Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman
Directed by: Jonathan Bolt

In the dying days of vaudeville, a washed-up performing trio leaves New York City for Hollywood. The first talking picture has revolutionized the movie business, and energetic idea man Jerry convinces the threesome to head out West to take advantage of the filmic gold rush. May gets the idea to pose as a diction coach, the better to fleece hordes of terrified silent movie actors who suddenly need pipes of gold to stay in the business. After a chance meeting with Helen Hobart, a popular movie columnist, the trio is all set. But success in the movie business is fickle, and George, May, and Jerry must learn to navigate the ego-driven confusion and ambitious, chaotic temptation of Hollywood, or risk losing each other forever. A madcap comedy that pokes fun at the glamorous and ridiculously tacky scene that was Hollywood in the late 1920s.

Spring Awakening September 17-22
By: Frank Wedekind
Directed by: Barbara Rubin
Translated by: Douglas E. Langworthy

Written in 1890, by Frank Wedekind, “bad boy” of German fin-de-siecle drama, but first performed in 1906 due to scandalous content, Spring Awakening deals frankly with adolescence and issues of teenage suicide, rape, abortion and homosexuality, in the lives of fourteen-year-olds. Melchior and Wendla stumble into each others’ arms, passionate and curious, while Moritz struggles to live up to the stringent expectations of society. A blistering satire of an inept education system, and a powerful condemnation of ignorant parenting, this play celebrating youth and rebellion ignited outrage in its time and was censored and banned. Its blend of dark comedy and tragic social commentary is terrifyingly resonant today, over a century later.
