Lysistrata

By Aristophanes
Adapted by Bobbie Bell

Oct. 4, 5, 10, 11 and 12 at 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 6 and 13 at 2 p.m.

Join us for a fun and funky new adaptation of Aristophanes’ classic comedy. The men are constantly at war, so Lysistrata urges the women to “fight the power” and take the boys on a “love rollercoaster,” refusing to make love until the men make peace. With its theme of “let’s make love not war,” this most
popular of the Greek comedies is out of sight and will let you get your groove back.

You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown

(Revised 1999) Based on the Comic Strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schultz
Book, Music and Lyrics by Clark Gesner
Additional Dialogue by Michael Mayer
Additional Music & Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Originally directed for this version by Michael Mayer
Originally produced in New York by Arthur Whitelaw and Gene Persson

Nov. 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Nov. 17 and 24 at 2 p.m. 

Who hasn’t enjoyed Charles Schultz’s comic strip Peanuts and all of the characters? A day in the life of Charlie Brown is depicted with all of its humor, musings and childhood foibles.

“So is Charlie Brown just a kids’ show, a mindless musical entertainment discerning adult theatregoers should avoid at all costs? No, my friends, it is much, much more than that.” ? Fergus McGillicuddy, Talkin’ Broadway

Lot o' Shakespeare

Directed, assembled and performed by Timothy Mooney

Dec. 6 and 7 at 7:30 p.m.
Dec. 8 at 2 p.m.

One monologue from every Shakespeare play chosen entirely at random…bingo-style. Mr. Mooney is noted for his fast-paced delivery of Shakespearean monologues.

“Takes highbrow art and mixes it with lowbrow fun. Mooney is an engaging presence and can switch from indignation in Comedy of Errors to earnest in a love sonnet to comical Malvolio in Twelfth Night. He may not be as physically imposing as some actors to play Henry V, but his St. Crispen’s Day speech made me want to take up arms with him.” ? Matthew J. Palm, Orlando Sentinel

Gem of the Ocean

By August Wilson

Feb. 7, 8, 13, 14 and 15 at 7:30 p.m.
Feb. 9 and 16 at 2 p.m.

The year is 1904. The house at 1839 Wylie Ave. in the Hill District of Pittsburgh has a new boarder, young Citizen Barlow, who is struggling to find his way in the brave new world up North. The guide on his journey is the mysterious Aunt Ester, the 285-year-old shaman who takes Citizen on a harrowing, “soul-washing” trip to the “City of Bones” where Barlow learns that to break the
chains of bondage he must first remember his past and navigate through a difficult present toward a future of freedom.

“The characters in ‘Gem’ … are … like pieces of parchment on which legends of the past and maps to the future have been drawn in swooping strokes of ink.” ? Ben Brantley, The New York Times

The Dining Room

By A. R. Gurney

April 4, 5, 10, 11 and 12 at 7:30 p.m.
April 6 and 13 at 2 p.m.

The dining table is the centerpiece of A. R. Gurney’s The Dining Room, and it is the only thing that doesn’t change as the lives of a New England clan cascade down the decades of the 20th century. In overlapping vignettes of
poignancy and mirth, Gurney celebrates a dying breed – the New England WASP.

“…a superbly written comedy!” ? Variety
