2013-2014 Season

The People, Yes

October 4-6 at 7:30 p.m. in Parker Auditorium

Written by Carl Sandburg, directed by Jim Stark

Written at the height of the Great Depression, Sandburg’s inspiring poem uses the language of ordinary people with remarkable power. This staging of the poem celebrates American culture and the resilience of humanity.

70 Scenes of Halloween

October 24-27 at 7:30 p.m. in Parker Auditorium

By Jeffrey M. Jones, directed by Jim Stark

In this surreal comedy, a young couple tries to survive the scariest night of the year, pursued by bloodthirsty monsters in the closet and sugar-hungry children on the porch.

Mature language.

The Importance of Being Earnest

November 22-24 at 7:30 p.m. in Parker Auditorium
Matinee: November 23 at 2 p.m.

By Oscar Wilde, directed by Mark Fearnow

Widely acclaimed as one of the funniest and most quotable plays ever written, this farce about a hero who enters life through a misplaced hand-bag is Wilde’s finely polished monument to triviality.

Harvest

February 14-16 at 7:30 p.m. in Parker Auditorium

By Manjula Padmanabhan, directed by Paul Hildebrand

This sci-fi drama unfolds in a near-future world where the rich buy the rights to the bodies of the poor, upon whom they shower luxuries–until Interplanta Services comes to collect whatever body-part the patron desires! Padmanabhan is a Delhi-based writer who won the prestigious Onassis Award for Harvest in 1997. Her play has been staged in Athens, Delhi, New York, and UC Berkeley. Harvest consistently ranks as the most popular play among the students in Hanover College’s course in Global Theatre.

Mature themes and actions.

Zastrozzi

March 21-23 at 7:30 p.m. in Parker Auditorium

By George F. Walker, directed by Jim Stark

In this fantasy thriller, inspired by a Gothic novel by Percy Bysshe Shelley, the struggle between good and evil emerges in the lives of a master criminal and a religious visionary. Which of them is the more dangerous?  Will either find peace? 

Violence and mature themes.
