"Holes" — Feb. 21 to March 4, 2019

"The Diary of Anne Frank"
A drama adapted by Wendy Kesselman from the play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett

Directed by Terrence Spivey

In this transcendently powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman (from the original stage play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett), newly discovered writings from the diary of Anne Frank — as well as survivor accounts — are interwoven to create a contemporary and impassioned story. This is a new adaptation for a new generation in which Anne Frank emerges from history as a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination.

An emotionally heartfelt drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic during World War II, The Diary of Anne Frank captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence — their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief.

Each day of these two dark years spent in hding, Anne's remarkably hopeful voice shines through: "When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!"

The Diary of Anne Frank is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. The videotaping or other video or audio recording of this production is strictly prohibited.

"[title of show]" — April 25 to May 4, 2019”[title of show]"
A musical
Music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen
Book by Hunter Bell

Directed by Kevin Lambes
Musical Director: Michael Moyseenko

“[title of show]” is for anyone who has ever written a [show], been in a [show}, directed a [show}…you get the idea! Follow the adventures of four friends as they shepherd a musical from inspiration to production and performance.

When two struggling writers hear about a new musical theatre festival, they could not be more excited. However, the deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. With nothing to lose, the pair decides to try to create something new with the help of their friends.

With the cast in place, the two writers begin a conversation about what to write about. Eventually, they decide to write about what to write about. They make a pact to write up until the festival’s deadline and dream about the show changing their lives.

“[title of show]” — taken from the space on the festival’s application form which asks for the [title of show] — follows four theater friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression. In the span of 90 minutes, they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists. "[title of show]" is, above all, a love letter to musical theatre — a uniquely American art form — and to the joy of collaboration.

Audience advisory: The production contains adult language and is not suitable for children.

“[title of show]” is presented by special arrangement with The Rodgers and Hammerstein Organization. All authorized performance materials are also supplied by this licensing agency. The videotaping or other video or audio recording of this production is strictly prohibited.

"Noises Off" — May 9 to 26, 2019"Noises Off"
A comedy by Michael Frayn

Directed by Fred Gloor

Often called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off is the hilarious play-within-a-play that takes a peek behind the curtain as a crazy troupe of second-rate British theater actors rehearses for a show called Nothing’s On.

During the first act, we see the harried director attempting to rein in the chaos as his hapless actors stumble through a painfully bad rehearsal. In Act II, Nothing’s On has opened on the road, and this time we in the audience get to see how things are going from backstage.

And things do NOT go well! The actors cannot remember their lines, off-stage love triangles begin to unravel, sardines fly everywhere and general pandemonium ensues.

Full of side-splitting, laugh-out-loud physical comedy, Noises Off promises a guaranteed good night out at the theater!

Audience Advisory: Noises Off contains adult language/profanity.

Noises Off is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. The videotaping or other video or audio recording of this production is strictly prohibited.
