Feb. 3 & 4 at 7:30pm and Feb. 4 at 2:00pm

All productions are teamwork of ideas and Imaginations. A collaborative partnership between actors, designers, and director. But what happen when something goes wrong or in our case the "Space" we are use to performing in has change drastically. Well these and many more questions will be put to the task in this years’ production. Highlighting the rewards and challenges of Ensemble Theatre from inside out.  How actors pick up a line, adapt the blocking, support one another all to make the "Show go on!"

"A Piece of My Heart" 

By Shirley LauroA Piece of My Heart poster

Directed by Jeannette Thomas

March 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25 at 7:30pm

March 18 & 25 at 2:00pm

In 1968, Janis Joplin implored us to “take another little piece of [her] heart”, while half a world away American soldiers were embroiled in the Vietnam War. Shirley Lauro’s prize winning play, A Piece of My Heart, conveys the true stories of six brave women who experience the war first hand. From USO and Red Cross workers, to regular Army nurses, these courageous women cope with the senselessness of war and a nation that turned against them. Underscored by the music that defined a generation, A Piece of My Heart is a compelling, vivid, moving piece of theatre that will take the audience on an unforgettable journey.

By William ShakespeareTaming of the Shrew poster

Directed by Brian Rickel

May 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20 at 7:30pm

May 13 & 20 at 2:00pm

Sweet Bianca wants to be married.  Her Father won’t allow it until Kate, her strong willed, older sister is married first.  With no suitors for Kate in sight, Bianca’s plight for love seems impossible until Petruchio comes to Padua seeking a wife and hopefully, a large dowry. 

Written between 1590 and 1592, Shakespeare’s bawdy comedy about the politics of love and marriage seems to stay relevant no matter the time period!  Taming of the Shrew explodes with fun as Petruchio and Kate, each as hard headed as the other, manage their wild game of courtship.  With a modern twist, Shrew promises a wild, witty, comedic romp!
