Directed by Alex Bassiakou Shaw
Sept. 21 – Oct. 1, 2023

This "swiftly paced,” powerful new translation of Antigone, is full of sly, contemporary humor. An uplifting and timely portrayal of Antigone’s fight for justice, Antigonick is a play about law and order, pride vs. love, and family and justice.

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals. Finalist! 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.





(from MMNT)Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
April 11 – 21, 2024

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece... and a rare modern classic.

The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.
