CLASS_TheatreWebSlidesINSTAGRAM-01The Pillowman

by Martin McDonough
Directed by Nicholas Newell

PERFORMANCE

With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, THE PILLOWMAN centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.

“There are no happy endings in real life.”

CLASS_TheatreWebSlidesINSTAGRAM-02The Mysteries; Creation

By Bernie Sahlins and Nick Rudall
Directed by Lisa L. Abbott

PERFORMANCE

THE MYSTERIES: CREATION are a modern adaptation of the medieval bible plays. They are, above all, wonderful stories involving families at work and play, all in a relationship to a God who was not walled up in church to be visited only on Sunday but who was ever-present. This modern-day version is joyous, music filled, comic, suspenseful, and satisfying. A magically engaging drama for all ages set to welcome the holiday season.  Come and enjoy the Mysteries!

For day I bid, LET THERE BE LIGHT!”

Twelfth Night            

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Gage Crook

 PERFORMANCE

Lovesick Orsino sends his servant Cesario (who is actually the maiden Viola in disguise) to plead on his behalf for the heart of the indifferent Olivia. Meanwhile, an alliance of servants and hangers- on fight a battle of wits against the high-handedness of the pompous Malvolio.  Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, TWELFTH NIGHT combines high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with Shakespeare’s poetry and song.

CLASS_TheatreWebSlidesINSTAGRAM-03A Game of Love and Chance 

By Pierre Marivaux
Directed by Lisa L. Abbott

PERFORMANCE

To Silvia, betrothed to the moneyed and majestic-looking Dorante, good nature means more than good looks, reason more than riches. It is not the lure of love that interests her, but its everlastingness.  Her maid Lisette does not bother her head about all this; she simply dreams of a man– any man! A hilarious game of love plays out as characters don disguises to find the path to true love.

“Overwhelm him, then, set him on fire, take him by storm – in a word, marry him.”
