The Shows

"Arcadia" 
by Tom Stoppard
Directed by Beth Duggan

Performance Dates:
Oct. 4, 5, 6, 11,12, 13 at 7:30pm
Oct. 6 & 13 at 2:00pm

At present-day Sidley Park, a country estate in Derbyshire, England, a pair of scholars sift through a haphazard trove of historical documents related to the estate’s sprawling gardens and the possibility that Lord Byron once visited, killing a man in a duel. Meanwhile, in 1809, thirteen-year-old Sidley Park resident Thomasina Coverly has become preoccupied with a strange notion: that underneath the seeming randomness and chaos of the world lies a predictable, mathematical order. As the lines between past and present become increasingly blurred, the world of the play begins to kaleidoscopically mirror the nearly-lost discoveries of the world’s first chaos theorist.
By turns touching, funny, and thought-provoking, Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia is a masterful exploration of the tension between, and reconciliation of, the Classical and the Romantic, the ordered and the disordered, the eventual and the never-quite-becoming.

 

"Goloshes of Fortune" 
adapted by Elizabeth Wong
based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen
Directed by Brian Rickel

*This show tours to elementary schools during the semester*
On Campus Performance Dates:
Nov. 2 & 3 at 7:30pm

A pair of magic yellow Wellington rain boots and two busybody fairies are the recipe for happiness in Elizabeth Wong’s adaptation of the classic fairytale by Hans Christian Anderson.  Orange and Blue fairy contemplate whether or not humans have the ability to really know joy!  In this irreverent and modern re-telling, four unsuspecting kids who think they know what they want, find themselves magically transported to finding real happiness with what they have right in front of them.  Filled with dancing, fairy slang and even a little lesson in Danish, Goloshes of Fortune is fun for the whole family!

 

"She Kills Monsters" 
by Qui Nguyen
Directed by Jason Heil

Performance Dates:
Nov. 29, 30, Dec. 1, 6, 7, 8 at 7:30pm
Dec. 1 & 8 at 2:00pm
Orcs!  Fairies! Vampire cheerleaders!  Agnes must fight them all as she searches deeper for the identity of a sister she never got the chance to know.  After Tilly’s death, Agnes stumbles upon her sister’s Dungeons and Dragons notebook and enters a world that is completely foreign to her.  In the ultimate game of imagination that offered Tilly solace and refuge, Agnes must slay more than her own demons…because there’s also a Dragon.  SHE KILLS MONSTERS ignites a swirling, comedic romp into a world filled with fantasy, adventure, romance and more!

With the exception of our tour show, we rehearse Monday-Friday from 6-9:30 PM until we get to tech rehearsals and performance.  Technical rehearsal begin the Wednesday or Thursday prior to opening.  At that point Saturdays are added to the schedule until the close of the performance.
