Based on Frank Wedekind’s groundbreaking and controversial play, Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik’s brilliant rock score and searingly emotional book take the story of sexual awakening, youth revolt, and self-discovery into a new century. It’s 1891, and grown-ups hold all the cards. Headstrong Melchior and naive Wendla stumble into each other’s arms, passionate and curious, while anxious Moritz struggles to live up to the stringent expectations of society. With only each other for guidance, this group of young men and women travel the fraught and rocky path of adolescence, discovering their bodies, their minds, and themselves along the way. An electric, vibrant celebration of youth and rebellion, Spring Awakening fuses issues of morality, sexuality, and rock and roll into a story that packs a powerful emotional punch. This play contains graphic and intense content including suicide, sexual violence/assault, sexual themes and mental illness. Suitable for mature audiences over 18.
Rosencrantz and GuildensternBy Tom Stoppard
Directed by Pia Wyatt
October 31- November 3 at 7:30pm
November 4 at 2pm
November 7-10 at 7:30pm
What happens when the supporting role IS the main character? Behind the scenes of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, we follow the antics of the Prince of Denmark’s two childhood best friends, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, as they grapple with understanding their existence. This play deals with Shakespeare’s language in a delightfully humorous manner that allows today’s audience to grasp the heartache, the confusion and the plight of life on this rollercoaster of staying afloat in what can be very confusing and chaotic times. This show is full of ha-has, hmmms and huhs?

Directed by Dr. Jack Wann

A different time is evoked in this marvelously theatrical and winning show, a live broadcast of a The Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade from the Hotel Astor’s Algonquin Room on December 21, 1942. The spirit of that bygone era when the world was at war and pop music meant “Strike Up the Band” and “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” (both are in this show) is accurately captured as the harassed producer copes with a drunk lead singer, the delivery boy who wants a chance in front of the mike, the second banana who dreams of singing a ballad, and the trumpet playing sound effects man who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller. Suitable for all ages.
