Fall Show

Dracula
Written by Steven Dietz
Based on the novel by Bram Stoker
Directed by Damian Arlyn
For a suspense and horror-filled adventure, follow the exploits of the evil Count Dracula as he travels back and forth from Transylvania to England as the small group of men and women try desperately to find and destroy him. Dracula is an iconic literary figure. He is at times humorous and thought-provoking, sometimes exciting, scary and romantic, but most important of all he is extremely entertaining. Not recommended for small children or the easily frightened.
 

Holiday Season Show

Little Women
Adapted by Marisha Chamberlain
From the novel by Louisa May Alcott
Directed by Jonathan Pedersen
The March family house and yard, 1863 --under the guidance of their beloved mother, the four young March sisters -- tempestuous Jo, motherly Meg, shy Beth, and spoiled baby Amy -- struggle to keep their family going while Father's away fighting in the Civil War. In this beautifully dramatized adaptation of the classic novel, even as privation, illness, and sibling rivalry cast their shadows, each girl strives to find her true self.
 

Late Winter Show

On the Verge
By Eric Overmyer
Directed by: Jen Waters
Three `sister sojourners', each a prototypical Victorian lady explorer, equipped with dialog as pithy as their helmets, thwack their machetes through the wilderness while telling tales of past jaunts among the natives. As intrepid trekkers, they put the lie to any charge that they are representatives of a weaker sex. Mr. Overmyer has written a play that is joyfully feminist.
Heroines to their heart, the explorers can accommodate themselves to any emergency (natural or man-made); although they are momentarily disoriented as they approach modern times. Theirs is a kaleidoscopic adventure.
 

Spring Musical

Ragtime
Book by Terrence McNally
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Based on “Ragtime” by E. L. Doctorow
Directed by Mary Jeanne Reynales
Music Conducted by Rob Birdwell

Winner of Tony’s in 1995, Ragtime is one of those shows that established itself as a classic from the moment it arrived. It has the power and appeal to be appreciated for generations to come. The show takes place in America in the early 1900s. This was a tumultuous time for Americans, with the rise of labor unions, women’s rights, children's labor laws, blacks fighting for equality, the highest immigration rate ever seen, and the rise of millionaires who use their power to control business and politics. See Booker T. Washington, Henry Ford, J.P. Morgan, Harry Houdini, and Emma Goldman in their struggles to change America.

 

Summer Show

The Clumsy Custard Horror Show and Ice Cream Clone Review

By William Gleason

Directed by Christie Van Winkle

The audience will get into the act (as they do in The Rocky Horror Picture Show) in this hilarious comedy. King Dumb is ready for his daughter to select a husband and all the Knights of the Realm are anxious to claim her hand. But the sweet Princess Prince has fallen for a gentle yet courageous lad she assumes to be a pauper. Not so! Little does she know that this scruffy stranger is Swashbuck Valpariso, bearer of the magic sword and Master of Fast Feet. With audience participation throughout, the play will leave you breathless with anticipation, reckless with abandon and proud to be a Zobian.
