Season 12:
The Ties That Bind

In a world filled with discord, what binds us together?

– Romeo & Juliet | by William Shakespeare | Sept. 6-29 | Directed by Joe Goscinski

A wall will factor into the staging of Shakespeare’s tragedy about star-crossed lovers. Joe Goscinski, who directed Classic’s delightful staging of A Midsummer Night’s Dream last fall, is returning to direct the show.

 Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley | by Lauren Gunderson & Margot Melcon | Nov. 22-Dec. 22 | Directed by Kelly Hilliard Roush

The show — a sort-of sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, written by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon, focused on Mary Bennet — sold out when Classic debuted it in December, so Kelly Hilliard Roush, who directed that production and also serves as the company’s Executive and Artistic Director, decided to bring it back.

Classic has arranged for the original cast and director to return to their roles.

Anna in the Tropics | by Nilo Cruz | Feb. 7-Mar. 1 | Directed by Kelly Hilliard Roush

Nilo Cruz’s drama is set in a Florida cigar factory in the 1920s, where a lector reads Anna Karenina while the workers roll cigars. Tolstoy’s story gradually begins to impact their lives.

 Our Town | by Thornton Wilder | Mar. 20-Apr.12 | Directed by Mark Stringham

Thornton Wilder’s 1938 classic looks at life in tiny Grover’s Corners, though the staging may look a little different from other productions, since it will reflect San Antonio’s demographics.

We will be casting it to reflect our town, and we have received permission from the Thornton Wilder estate to do so, and to cast a man or a woman as the Stage Manager.

– Brighton Beach Memoirs | by Neil Simon | May 8-31 | Directed by Tim Hedgepeth

Neil Simon’s semi-autobiographical 1983 play, about how family can hold you close in good ways and bad. It’s the Depression-era story of a Jewish teenager coming-of-age in a crowded household in Brooklyn, NY.
