I can’t wait for people to see these shows.”
To Kill a MockingbirdFebruary 24 - March 26, 2016
Harper Lee’s classic American story of courage and justice. In a small Alabama town, a black man, Tom Robinson, stands falsely accused of raping a white woman. Many townspeople would see him condemned, but attorney Atticus Finch defends Tom and demands justice. Through the trial, Atticus’ children Scout and Jem and their friend Dill come face to face with realty of racism in their small town. Dr. Martin Luther King reminds us, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” This inspiring truth underlies To Kill a Mockingbird.

The ChristiansApril 6 - April 24, 2016
Do you have the courage to change your heart? Pastor Paul is much-loved and much-respected, but he has a difficult sermon to deliver. What will be the impact of his words on his loyal congregation? What consequences for his family? For himself? Playwright-to-watch Lucas Hnath invites people of all faiths and beliefs, to engage in a conversation about the seemingly insurmountable distance between us. Set in a contemporary mega-church and performed as Sunday service with sermons, scripture, and a full choir, The Christians has quickly become one of the most talked about new plays in the country.
“[Lucas] Hnath is one of the brightest new voices of his generation.” - The New York Times

Ken Ludwig's Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes MysteryMay 11 - May 29, 2016
A madcap comedy spoof of Sherlock Holmes’ most famous case. Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) turns Arthur Conan Doyle’s frightening tale into fast-paced, murderously delightful, comedy thriller as five actors take on a multitude of roles, including the famous sleuth and Dr. Watson. Like The 39 Steps (2010) only with a lot more howling!
