"The Curate Shakespeare: As You Like It"
By Don Nigro
September 29-October 1 and October 6-8 at 8:00 p.m.
When Don Nigro was asked by a professional theatre company to adapt “As You Like It” so that it could be performed by a company of seven, he devised a completely original play about a rag tag group of players led by a dotty old curate who must present Shakespeare’s play. The dramatic interest and the comedy derive from their hilarious efforts to impersonate all of Shakespeare’s characters. Subtitled “The record of one company’s attempt to perform the play by William Shakespeare,” Nigro’s play has become an underground comic classic!
By Arthur Miller
Directed by Matthew Watson
November 17-19 & December 1-3 at 8:00 p.m.
Written during Joe McCarthy’s anticommunist trials in America, this classic tale of the witch hunts in colonial New England still stands as a powerful parable against the politics of fear. When young women are discovered trying to conjure spirits, the God-fearing people of Salem, Massachusetts are told the devil is in their midst and must be rooted out at all costs. Accusations fly, scores are settled, and fear and suspicion reign. While brilliantly exploring the threshold between individual guilt and mass hysteria, personal spite and collective evil, The Crucible compels us to fathom our hearts and consciences in ways that only the greatest theatre can.
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Book by Roger O. Hirson
April 6-8 & 13-15 at 8:00 p.m.
Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is at a crossroads in his life. Does he follow in the footsteps of his father, one of the most powerful men in the land? Or does he strike out on his own, to find his own “corner of the sky?” With an infectiously unforgettable score from the four-time Grammy-winner, three-time Oscar-winner, and musical theatre giant Stephen Schwartz ("Wicked," "Godspell," "Children of Eden"), Pippin reminds us that true happiness may be found in the ordinary moments that happen every day.
