Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein is one of the most known and retold stories in the world. But few know that Mary faced as much death and drama during the writing of her book as her characters do. This play tells the equally compelling true story of Frankenstein’s teenage author Mary Shelley alongside her original tale of horror. Moving back and forth between the layered worlds of the book and the world in which Mary Shelley was writing (and sometimes blending the two), Frankenstein is a dark, gothic drama about an extraordinary young woman, the strange times she lived in, and all of her many monsters.

Ensemble features actors grades 8 – 12.

Walk Two Moons
by Sharon Creech; adapted by Tom Arvetis

“Don’t judge a man until you’ve walked two moons in his moccasins. Thirteen-year-old Sal’s mother left over a year ago. When her friend Phoebe’s mom disappears, the girls begin seeing murderous plots and schemes around every corner. Sal shares these conspiracy theories with her Gram and Gramps during a cross-country trip to confront her mother. Through the telling of Phoebe’s story, Sal ultimately realizes that things—and people—are not always what they seem. A beautiful stage adaptation of Sharon Creech’s Newberry Award-winning novel.

Evidently, the Evidence is Evident
by Gillian Jorgensen
directed by Emily Purington

In the ever-changing forest, one thing is always the same: insects and birds and bunnies do not get along. The Bug Court strives to keep order, but without judge or jury, much is left to the residents-at-large to determine who did what, where and when, and whether it was above board or below ground. Fighting against a system that hasn’t worked in years, Moth, Little Bun, and Stella the Jay agree to set disagreements aside in order to find a new order, one that will keep the forest in good spirits and song… but is it possible? And who keeps pillaging the food storage?

Ensemble features actors grades 5 – 8.

Soup to Nuts
by Jennifer Dice
directed by Steven Sterne
When an unemployed busboy from an all-you-can-eat buffet wanders into the finest hotel in town, he finds the management eagerly awaiting the arrival of Maurice Menteur, the famous French chef.  Though he doesn’t know a crepe from a crouton, all it takes is a fake mustaches and a phony accent to get our hero hired for the job! The hotel owner appears to be fooled, but it’s going to be tougher to trick the top food critics — not to mention the health inspector. Stir in multiple mistakes and silly situations, add a dash of slapstick, whip it all up and put a cherry on top and you have Soup to Nuts — a five-star farce!
Ensemble features actors grades 2 – 5.

The Seagull
by Anton Chekhov; adapted by Carol Rocamora
directed by Brandon J. Simmons
Tragedy and satire mix in Chekhov’s first great play. The Seagull follows the lives of ten extraordinary characters on a provincial estate in turn-of-the-century Russia. Romance and artistic yearnings intermingle on the shores of a beautiful lake, and the play’s tensions build to a dazzling climax on a dark and stormy night, where a young actress and a young writer are re-united for a dramatic reckoning that both fulfills and defies expectation.
Ensemble features actors grades 9 – 12.

Flesh and Blood
by William Shakespeare
directed by Keiko Green

Moor. Jew. A pound of flesh. Blood, blood, blood. Shakespeare’s language is visceral, his characters deeply complex. With scenes from Othello and The Merchant of Venice, actors dig deep into issues of identity, otherness, and society. In what ways do these characters relate to us, to our 21st century present? What drives the intensity of the emotions at stake? This unique mash-up of two great scripts gives us the freedom to find multiple answers to Shakespeare’s hard questions, while giving actors of all race and gender an opportunity to play such iconic characters as Othello, Iago, and Shylock.

Ensemble features actors grades 6 – 9.
