Much Ado About Nothing

By William Shakespeare
directed by Carly Conklin and Stephen Kerr

November 6 & 7 @ 7:30 pm
November 8 & 9 @ 2:30 pm
November 14 & 15 @ 7:30 pm

Craig-Dorland Theatre

Witty banter abounds against the modern backdrop of political candidates returning from the campaign trail, celebrations, and inevitable romance. What work of Shakespeare would be complete without a heartless villain who threatens the happiness and innocence of all? In this powerful comedy, Shakespeare makes you laugh, but also breaks your heart –- and then magically puts it back together again as if it were all “much ado about nothing.”

Radium Girls

By DW Gregory
directed by Julie Studstill

March 27, 28 @ 7:30 pm

March 28 @ 2:30 pm

March 29 @ 2:30 pm

Sarkeys Black Box Theater

In 1926 radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage – until the girls who painted them began to fall ill. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of the strong yet innocent Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court.

Written with warmth and humor, Radium Girls is a fast-moving, highly theatrical history play that offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions of health, wealth, and the commercialization of science.

“A compelling new drama ... the playwright lays out the facts with historical accuracy, descriptivesimplicity and graphic candor.“ – Variety

The Glass Menagerie

By Tennessee Williams
directed by Jeffrey Wells

April 30, May 1 & 2 @ 7:30 pm

May 2 & 3 @ 2:30 pm

Craig-Dorland Theatre

This semi-autobiographical American classic by Tennessee Williams places the audience squarely in the world of three fragile family members as they struggle to maintain their own illusions of innocence, independence and fulfillment.

Set in a 1930’s St. Louis tenement house, The Glass Menagerie provides audiences with a transparent picture of the struggles to break from a bleak present in an effort to secure a bright future. Heartbreakingly tender and often humorous, this tale seriously speaks to the human condition and provides riveting drama.
