Hamlet teeters on the edge of madness when he learns his uncle has killed his father and married his mother.

March 6-8, 13-15

by: Hans Christian Andersen

Directed: Shannon Hurst

Have you ever done something simply due to pride or out of fear of what others might think of you? Hans Christian Anderson's 'The Emperor's New Clothes' is a tale of an entire kingdom that ignores the obvious for fear of judgement, only to be called out by a child. In this story, the Emperor loves fine clothing. Two men, swindlers, arrive in the city claiming to be the best weavers imaginable. They claim that the clothing they make is the finest with beautiful, intricate patterns. The swindlers say that this clothing is also magical and would appear invisible to anyone who was stupid or incompetent.... or is it?

by: Anton Chekhov

Directed: Shannon Hurst

One of the great plays of the 20th century, Chekhov’s final masterpiece captures a world and a family in transition. Faced with the sale of their cherished orchard, the Gayev family returns home in an attempt to preserve what they can of their family’s once great estate. This magnificent work combines the hope and absurdity of the human spirit. A stirring, touching piece of theatre you won’t soon forget.

Upon discovering that he has sabotaged the relationship between her sister Jane and his friend Mr Bingley, Elizabeth is determined to dislike him more than ever. But nothing is as it seems and in the romantic entanglements that follow, everyone’s life is turned upside down. Originally published in 1813, Pride and Prejudice has lost none of its appeal and its themes still ring true with modern audiences.

Much Ado About Nothing

August 20-23, 27-30

by: William Shakespeare

Directed: Shannon Hurst

Leonato’s house is a happy one, complete with a beautiful daughter, Hero, and a clever niece, Beatrice. When Leonato’s friends return from the war, the household is turned on its ear by the instant attraction between Hero and Claudio, and the constant bickering between Messina’s favorite “will they/won’t they” couple, Beatrice and Benedick. There’s a snake in the midst of all this affection, and Don John plots to destroy these budding romances. Masquerades reveal as much as they hide in this hilarious comedy.
