The Shows

"Inside the Actor's Process: Classical"

Moliere, Ibsen, Chekhov, Shakespeare, and Goldsmith, oh my!  

Many an actor has found themselves face to face with the classics and felt the immediate instinct to run screaming back to plays written without all the “Thou and thee and hither and yon”.  But what happens when we approach these works the same way we look at modern realistic plays where people speak like we do?  What if there was a way to de-mystify the language and DISCOVER the joy with which they were written and originally performed? 
Follow us into the wonderful topsy-turvy wordy world that is Classical Theatre to do just that!

The Heir Apparent

By David Ives, adapted from Le Legataire universel by Jean Francois-Regnard
Directed by Robert Lutfy

Penniless Eraste is in love with the fair Isabelle but her mother, Madame Argante, will only permit the marriage if Eraste can show he will inherit the estate of his miserly and rich Uncle Geronte. Unfortunately for Eraste, old Geronte has also fallen for the fair Isabelle, and plans to marry her and leave everything he owns to her-- squashing the young love forever. Impersonating the old man, as well two brash, disinherited relatives, Eraste's wily servant Crispin dictates a will favorable to his master (and himself, of course), only to find that even the best laid plans come undone!  
David Ives’ adaptation is rich with flowing French couplets and this joyful farce has everything working out in the end.

"Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure"

By Steven Dietz
Directed by Beth Duggan

 "The game is afoot, Watson—and it is a dangerous one!”

Just when Sherlock Holmes thinks he’s at the end of his career, a case presents itself that he cannot pass up.  The King of Bohemia is about to be blackmailed by someone with a notorious photograph, and the woman at the heart of this crime is the famous opera singer, Irene Adler. With Doctor Watson, his trusted companion, at his side, Holmes pursues first the case, and eventually the elusive affections of Miss Adler as he is unwittingly drawn into the lair of his longtime adversary, that malevolent genius of crime: Professor Moriarty.  
Expect danger, intrigue, wit, humor and surprise in Dietz’ exciting take on the world’s most famous detective!
