Theatre Productions: 2018-2019 Season

2018-19 Season Graphic

Fall Show

The Clean House by Sarah Ruhl
November 9, 10, 15, 16, 17

Directed by Mark Owsley

The Clean House by Sarah Ruhl, a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2005, is a romantic comedy about loss, love, change and redemption. The Clean House is both whimsical and touching. A career-oriented doctor has hired a quirky Brazilian maid who hates to clean. Instead, she longs to be a comedienne. The doctor is deserted by her husband, who leaves her for his mistress, a passionate, older woman upon whom he recently performed a mastectomy. Sarah Ruhl's play reminds us that there is humor and beauty to be found in life's most unlikely messes.


Winter Musical

Godspell 2012 Music and new lyrics by Stephen Schwartz Book by John-Michael Tebelak
February 22, 23, March 1, 2, 7, 8, 9

Directed by H. Gene Biby, Vocal Direction by April Brookins Duvic

Godspell 2012 is a masterful retelling of the original musical sensation, injected with contemporary references and dazzling new arrangements.  It was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden); and it took the world by storm.  A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage.


Spring Show

Proof  by David Auburn
May 17, 18, 23, 24, 25

Director TBD

Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize.

On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father's madness—or genius—will she inherit?
