The Roman General and the Egyptian Queen. Their romance gave birth to an empire, but their fiery longing came at a price. Caught between desire and duty, Antony and Cleopatra’s love affair shook the foundations of the known world. Power politics and passion collide in Shakespeare’s captivating tragedy. Director John Langs, who staged our 2010 production of Hamlet, returns to helm this legendary and tragic affair between two charismatic leaders.

Darling Nora enjoys a comfortable life with her family and loves her husband Torvald above all else. So much so, that she’s risked a small lie in order to save his reputation and protect their cozy existence. When the truth worms its way out with a threat of blackmail, Nora begins to question her devotion and find herself forced into making a life-altering decision: honor her marriage or pursue her duty to herself.

In this exuberant romantic comedy youthful idealism gets derailed by love. The King of Navarre and his buddies have plans to immerse themselves in their studies swearing off less civilized pursuits — namely girls. After the Princess of France arrives with her ladies on a diplomatic mission, the young men’s hearts melt along with their brainy resolve. Playful pranks, witty wordplay and moony wooing give way to more serious matters that reveal the cost of real love.

Spring 2013


An indoor revival of our popular Wooden O trailer park Shrew! Brought up in a rough and forgotten corner of backwoods America, the tempestuous and sharp-tongued Kate bows down to no man. But then Petrucchio swaggers in to town with a plan to steal Kate’s guarded heart. Through bickering and brawling, their comic courtship is a no-holds-barred battle of the sexes that results in a love and understanding that neither one imagined.
