If That’s Your Wish
A play adapted by Joelle Sherman & Tara Kaine. Based on the book Five Children and It by E. Nesbit. Directed by Duncan Frost
Nesbit’s classic story uploads perfectly into our present day instant wish world where everything is now and new, with 1 hour shipping. Bored out of their minds, 5 siblings on vacation are about to implode on each other when they stumble across a cantankerous……creature. It is scruffy, mean, and weird, but it grants wishes. Perfect, right? The siblings are about to discover that everything they ever wished for was nothing they ever wanted. An epic adventure across real and imagined worlds, filled with wild and unstable characters on the edge of big discoveries!
Performances: Friday, January 13th at 7:00pm. Saturday, January 14th at 2:00pm & 7:00pm. Sunday, January 15th at 2:00pm.

The Winter’s Tale
by William Shakespeare Directed by Keiko Green & MJ Sieber
Exit, pursued by bear. Shakespeare’s play of mystery, passion, jealousy, and love. Suspecting his queen of infidelity with his best friend, a jealous king intends to execute her and abandon their newborn child, but the child is saved by the appearance of the bear, and reemerges years later as a free-spirited young woman. Full of clowns, commoners, nobility, righteous anger, and true love — and, of course, a bear.

The Nut-Brown Girl
by Gillian Jorgensen Directed by Sara Porkalob

Performances: Friday, March 10th at 7pm. Saturday March 11th at 2pm & 7pm. Sunday, March 12th at 2pm.
The Mobius Conundrum

The astroliner Mobius II is heading back to Earth from deep space, when the crew receives a distress call from an uncharted planet.
