Message
  • Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard

October 14-17, 2010

Shiley Theatre

This Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of "Waiting for Godot" resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end. Directored by George Yé.

 

  • Mrs. Bob Cratchit's Wild Christmas Binge by Christopher Durang

November 18-23, December 1-4, 2010

Black Box Theatre (C131)

When a sassy ghost once again attempts to shake Scrooge from his holiday humbug, the whole family-friendly affair is deliciously derailed by Mrs. Cratchit’s drunken insistence on stepping out of her miserable, treacly role. Morals are subverted, starving yet plucky children sing carols, and somebody’s goose is cooked! Directed by Carrie Klewin.

 

  • The Mail Order Bride by Charles Mee

May 3-5, 2011

Studio Theatre

A souffle of five Molieres, whipped together with a pinch of Wycherley—in which an older man orders up a young Asian bride for delivery, to the outrage of his sister, his two daughters, and even his personal trainers. They ask him: does he think he can just buy a bride? And he asks them: do they think it would be better if he were just to rent one? Directed by Monica Stufft.
