Five Women Wearing the Same Dress
By Alan Ball
Directed by Clay Kirkland
October 3-6 and 9-12, 2013

During an over-the-top wedding reception at the bride’s family home, five reluctant bridesmaids seek to escape the festivities by hiding in an upstairs bedroom. As each reveals her reason for avoiding the reception, these very different women share secrets and develop an uplifting, healing camaraderie. This poignant yet wickedly funny script is from the pen of Alan Ball, creator of the celebrated television series True Blood and Six Feet Under and the Oscar-winning screenwriter of American Beauty. “An irreverent and funny look at the intricacies of friendship…[a] wonderfully entertaining play…" —NY Post
Please Note:  This production contains adult language and situations.  This production will be held in the Black Box Theatre (K-1001) on Main Campus and there is one   Wednesday (October 9) performance.

A Christmas Carol
By Charles Dickens
Directed by Tammy Perkins
November 21-24, 2013

This perennial favorite relates the journey of miserable miser Ebenezer Scrooge through Christmases past, present, and future and his ultimate transformation into a compassionate human being.  Can you really have a complete holiday season without this family classic? 

Please Note:  We have added a Saturday at 2:00 pm performance!


Book, Music and Lyrics by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey
Directed by Zach BloomfieldMusic Direction by Sue Malmberg
February 27-28, March 1-2, 2014

One of the world’s most popular musicals, Grease follows ten working-class teenagers as they grapple with the complexities of adolescence, love, friendship, and teenage rebellion.  Rydell High’s head "greaser" Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive their summer romance as the rest of the “Burger Palace Boys” and “Pink Ladies” sing and dance their way through such songs as "Greased Lightnin'" "It's Raining on Prom Night," and "Alone at the Drive-In Movie."  Appropriate for teens and up.

God of Carnage

By Yamina Raza
Directed by Nicki Blowers
April 10-13, 2014

Winner of the 2009 Tony Award.  This is a streamlined anatomy of the human animal which delivers the cathartic release of watching other people's marriages go boom as well as a  study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct.  This play is itself a satisfyingly primitive entertainment. "Elegant, acerbic and entertainingly fueled on pure bile. It's Reza's sharpest work since 'Art'." —Variety.

Please Note: This production contains adult language and situations.

Please Note: There is no Saturday at 2:00 pm performance.
