2019-2020 Season

The 39 Steps
A madcap comedy, The 39 Steps by Patrick Barlow is a hilarious spoof on the class mystery adventure."Mis a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python, and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit..." (Samuel French). Directed by company instructor Tami LoSasso, with student director Teesa Pflueger.

Cast: 5 male, 5 female

Show dates: November 7-9, 2019

The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza
Two battling narrators attempt to cover the entirety of Greek mythology using audience participation, cross-dressing, and general theatrical insanity. Creation myths such as Pandora's Box and Cronos and the Titans jostle for space with other famous myths like Jason and the Argonauts (the original Super Friends). Culminating in a heart-pounding, five-minute, two-actor version of The Iliad, this fast-paced, free-wheeling play is wild, silly, and a complete blast for all ages. Directed by company instructor Jace Smykil and Zoe Kaufman.

The Actor's Nightmare
Having casually wandered onstage, George is informed that one of the actors, Eddie, has been in an auto accident and he must replace him immediately. Apparently no one is sure of what play is being performed but George (costumed as Hamlet) seems to find himself in the middle of a scene from Private Lives, surrounded by such luminaries as Sarah Siddons, Dame Ellen Terry and Henry Irving. As he fumbles through one missed cue after another the other actors shift to Hamlet, then a play by Samuel Beckett, and then a climactic scene from what might well be A Man for All Seasons—by which time the disconcerted George has lost all sense of contact with his fellow performers. Directed by student Josh Moore.
