Into The Woods

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by James Lapine

Directed by Michael Moeller

Interweaving a hilarious mix of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, The Baker's Wife, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel (with cameo appearances by Sleeping Beauty and Snow White) in a multi-layered plot, the play ends "happily ever after" in Act One. Act Two then explores the actuality of this "happy" ending, as our characters' actions come home to roost - with a vengeance.

April 30, May 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 14, and 15

Friday and Saturday night shows have a 8 pm curtain; Sunday matinee starts at 2 pm.

Bus Stop

Book by William Inge

Directed by C. Jamison Bradley

As this dramatic comedy begins, passengers on a bus out of Kansas City hole up at a cheerful roadside diner to ride out a snowstorm. As the plot unfolds, we find that a young floozy, in her spangled nightclub gown, has been pursued, made love to, and finally kidnapped by a rowdy 21-year-old cowboy, who plans to carry her, kicking and screaming, home to Montana. Try as she might to duck from his clumsy embraces, we suspect they just might end up together.

Friday and Saturday night shows have a 8 pm curtain; Sunday matinee starts at 2 pm.
