Our 2018-19 Production Season

FALL 2018

THE TAMING!
(A vaudevillian adaptation of The Taming of The Shrew)
By William Shakespeare
Adapted and Directed by C. Julian Jiménez
Humanities Theatre

When a fortune-hunting Petruchio hears there is a gold mine to claim by marrying the rich but unusually independent, Katharina, he tries his hardest to make her subservient. The catch is... She is not having it!


IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE
Adapted by Joe Landry
Directed by Liisa Yonker
The Shadowbox Theatre

Frank Capra’s timeless holiday film is reimagined for the stage and performed in the style of a 1940’s radio broadcast. Celebrate the season with us as we travel back to a simpler time and let the message of this classic tale remind us all that “each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole.”

SPRING 2019

A DOLL’S HOUSE
By Henrik Ibsen
Adapted and Directed by Arthur Adair
Humanities Theatre

Society was outraged, when, in 1879, the father of Realism presented this “modern” tragedy of a woman, married with children, trapped within a male-dominated world. We revisit the work, 140 years later, to see how times have changed.


DONTRELL, WHO KISSED THE SEA
By Nathan Alan Davis
Directed by Georgia McGill
The Shadowbox Theatre

A poetic and compelling journey as Dontrell takes to the ocean in search of an ancient ancestor who crossed the ocean in the middle voyage as a slave. As his family visions his future, he is pulled toward the past. Award winning play by Nathan Alan Davis.
