 "All I Really Need To Know I Learned By Being In A Bad Play"

Directed by Cinnamon Simpson

Performing March 18-20, 2016

Ages 11 and up

 Based on several disastrous theatrical experiences, Bad Play peels back a tattered curtain to examine the process of putting on a show that is less than good. A stuffy narrator (what bad play is complete without a stuffy narrator?) guides the audience through the whole sorry process. We go from the audition—where the director is more worried about roast beef than paying attention to the warm-up exercise, and the neurotic cast pretends to be bacon—to rehearsals—where a passive-aggressive stage manager gives everyone grief. There's also a special meeting of the Small Part Support Group and a production of Romeo and Juliet set in a Starbucks with costumes of potato sacks and bowler hats. This bad play within a play won't win any awards, but All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Play will keep audiences in stitches.

 And

 "Snow White"

Directed by Cinnamon Simpson

Performing March 18-20

Ages 8 and up

 Join us as we bring to life the enchanting tale of the beautiful, gentle Snow White and her jealous stepmother, the Queen. Sent on a perilous journey into the woods, Snow White befriends the forest animals and the delightful seven dwarfs in this classic tale adapted by Kathryn Schultz Miller.

 The Scarlet Letter by Phyllis Nagy

Directed by Karen Allen

Performing April 21-24

Ages 12 and up

 

Phyllis Nagy’s adaptation of Nathanial Hawthorne’s classic novel about Puritan New England uses modern language to tell the story of Hester Prynne, her daughter, Pearl, and the community that shunned them. A powerful story about love, courage, revenge, and redemption.

 And

 Marvin’s Room by Scott McPherson

Directed by Karen Allen

Performing April 21-24

Ages 12 and up

 Bessie lives in Florida where she cares for her pain-ridden aunt and ailing father, Marvin, who is confined to his bed and unable to speak. When Bessie is diagnosed with leukemia, her only hope is to contact her long-estranged sister, Lee, to see if their bone marrow is compatible for a transplant. Lee reluctantly makes the trip from Ohio, bringing along her two sons, one of whom, Hank, has just been released from an institution after a wave of arson.

 Despite the dark-sounding subject matter, it’s an uplifting play about love and connection.
