Blue is a quiet clown in the circus of colors.
Red is the ring master who likes to pick on blue.
The other clowns don't like what they see, but what can they do?
This years children's touring show combines a message under a circus tent.
It's a fun filled adventure, full of laughs - but with meaning.
So put on your Blue, Yellow, Green or Orange nose and see
where it will lead you. You might be surprise by what you discover.

DEC. 3 & 10 at 2:00pm

The year: 192X. The place: Ottawa, Illinois. For a woman, good-paying work is hard to find, yet the assembly line is in full swing at the factory of the Radium Dial Company. Here, Catherine Donohue and her coworkers spend their days hand-adorning the hour markings on clocks and watches with glow-in-the-dark radium paint whose dangerously radioactive properties are unknown to the workers and downplayed by the bosses. As the women begin suffering from mystifying and terrifying ailments, they suspect their job may be to blame. These Shining Lives recounts the true story of the women who formed a bond of kinship as they fought the Radium Dial Company in their search for justice and how their sacrifice forged a legacy of better working conditions for future generations.

Well these and many more questions will be put to the task in this years’ production. Highlighting the rewards and challenges of Ensemble Theatre from inside out.  How actors pick up a line, adapt the blocking, support one another all to make the "Show go on!"

Directed by Jeannette Thomas

March 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25 at 7:30pm

March 18 & 25 at 2:00pm

In 1968, Janis Joplin implored us to “take another little piece of [her] heart”, while half a world away American soldiers were embroiled in the Vietnam War. Shirley Lauro’s prize winning play, A Piece of My Heart, conveys the true stories of six brave women who experience the war first hand. From USO and Red Cross workers, to regular Army nurses, these courageous women cope with the senselessness of war and a nation that turned against them. Underscored by the music that defined a generation, A Piece of My Heart is a compelling, vivid, moving piece of theatre that will take the audience on an unforgettable journey.

By William ShakespeareTaming of the Shrew poster

Directed by Brian Rickel

May 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20 at 7:30pm

May 13 & 20 at 2:00pm

Sweet Bianca wants to be married.  Her Father won’t allow it until Kate, her strong willed, older sister is married first.  With no suitors for Kate in sight, Bianca’s plight for love seems impossible until Petruchio comes to Padua seeking a wife and hopefully, a large dowry. 

Written between 1590 and 1592, Shakespeare’s bawdy comedy about the politics of love and marriage seems to stay relevant no matter the time period!  Taming of the Shrew explodes with fun as Petruchio and Kate, each as hard headed as the other, manage their wild game of courtship.  With a modern twist, Shrew promises a wild, witty, comedic romp!
