INCORRUPTIBLE

September 13 – September 30

INCORRUPTIBLE- Our fall season opens with the Michael Hollinger comedy, Incorruptible. Welcome to Priseaux, France, circa 1250 AD. The River flooded again last week, the chandler’s shop just bruned to the ground and Ste. Foy, the patron of the local monastery, hasn’t worked a miracle in thirteen years. In other words, the Dark Ages still look pretty dark. “A lightning-fast farce, rich in both verbal and physical humor.” – American Theatre

Directed by: Al Fuchs

INTO THE WOODS

October 25 – November 18

INTO THE WOODS- Our 33rd seasons closes with Stephen Sondheim classic, Into the Woods. Little Red, the Wolf, Cinderella, and the Witch return for a triumphant encore! Act One introduces us to all of our favorite fairytale characters, but then in Act Two, the beans, the giant, the witch, and the beanstalk all come tumbling down. The music we love, the stories we’ve known…or have we? Don’t miss out!
