Twelfth Night graphic

Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare


Date: November 7-9, 2024 @ 7:30 PM & November 10, 2024 @ 2:00 PM

Director: Joe Urick

Description: Historically dubbed "the perfect comedy," "Twelfth Night" tells the story of Viola, a young maiden shipwrecked on the coast of Illyria. She believe she has lost her twin brother, Sebastian, to the sea. She disguises herself as a man named Cesario and enters the service of Duke Orsino, who is smitten with the Countess Olivia, who herself is mourning the death of her brother. Duke Orsino sends 'Cesario' as an intermediary to profess his love to Olivia, but Olivia, however, falls hopelessly in love with 'Cesario,' setting her at odds with her "mourning." If that wasn't enough, Viola falls in love with Orsino, creating a seemingly impossible love triangle. Add a hilarious subplot about servants and drunken lords, add in some original music, and this is a romantic night of laughs to remember!

Awakening graphic

Spring Awakening

Book & lyrics by Steven Sater

Music by Duncan Sheik

Based on the play by Frank Wedekind


Date: February 20-22, 2025 @ 7:30 PM; February 23, 2025 @ 2:00 PM

Directors: TBD

Description: 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. 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 that packs an emotional punch.

Rated: R

Note: Spring Awakening contains sexual situations, explicit language, and scenes depicting violence and suicide. Audience members under the age of 16 are strongly recommended to attend with a trusted adult.
