"Twelfth Night"; or, "What You Will"
Jan 24—Feb 16

Directed by Michael Addison

Comic confusions are the norm in this comedy of disguised identities, false letters, spurned lovers, a clown and a ludicrous duel. Add to the mix a shipwreck, a pair of identical twins, a former pirate, a besotted uncle, a sour butler, and a goofy suitor and you have the makings of one of Shakespeare’s most delightful comedies. Love, of course, is at the heart of the comedy. In “Twelfth Night” Shakespeare weaves a story that blends rich poetry with outrageous comic antics to create a brave new world of joy and love fulfilled.

"Shrek the Musical"
April 4 - 27

Directed by Gai Jones.

Everything’s coming up Ogres in “Shrek the Musical,” the Broadway adaptation of Shrek, borne from Dreamwork’s hit movie that was sort of a parody of Disney animations. But it instantly appealed to adults because of its wit, sense of fun and allusions to popular culture. Experience what’s up in Duloc with the gang: Shrek, Fiona, Donkey and Farquaad; to the tune of the Grammy award winning musical score.

"I Ought to be in Pictures"
May 16- June 8

Directed by Steve Grumette.

This is a comedy-drama about love, dreams and guilt, a recipe for another Tony Award cooked up by the master, Neil Simon. Set in Hollywood, a struggling screenwriter is stupefied by a visit from his daughter from Brooklyn whom he abandoned 16 years before. She wants to be in pictures and wants his help, but she ends up helping him more.

July 11- August 10

Directed by Tracey Williams Sutton.

This is Richard Rodgers’ favorite musical and his second collaboration with Oscar Hammerstein which was named the Best Musical of the 20th century by Time Magazine. A powerful story of love and tragedy between a millworker and a Carousel barker, it hits all the right notes with songs such as “If I Loved You” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone.” To quote Rodgers: “It affects me deeply every time I see it performed.”

"Of Mice and Men"
August 29- Sept 21
Directed by Rick Kuhlman.

John Steinbeck’s brilliant novel was turned into a play while still on the best seller list and it won the highest honor of its time. The story of a deep friendship among migrant workers who dream of a better life, but are thwarted by prejudice and cruelty, still resonates in today’s world. It came from Steinbeck’s own experience as a ‘hobo’ (HOmeward BOund).

A Christmas Story
Dec 5 - Dec 21

Directed by Gai Jones

Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Everyone tells Ralphie “you’ll shoot your eye out!”
