Welcome to our 2012-2013 season!

 

Mr. Marmalade by Noah Haidle

Lucy’s imaginary friend turns sinister as she forms a new bond with a real boy. This dark comedy examines the scars of abuse through a cast of characters both real and imagined: a largely absent mother, an oversexed babysitter, talking plants, and a suicidal five-year-old.

Directed by David Haugen

The Elizabeth Evans Baker Theater                                                         October 3-13, 2012

 

Assassins by Stephen Sondheim & John Weidman

An anarchist firearms proprietor, a darkly charismatic John Wilkes Booth, and a cast of aspiring presidential assassins vie to "hit the prez and win a prize!" Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman's musical treks through American history asking: whether for love, money, recognition, or a cause, why not kill the president?

Directed by Lee Kinney (MFA 2013 candidate)

The Forum Theater                                                                         November 28-December 8, 2012


 Lysistrata by Aristophanes (adapt. by Ellen McLaughlin)

In a bold maneuver to broker peace, Lysistrata unites the women of Greece in a sex strike. Dance, music, and ribald comedy animate this stripped-down adaptation of Aristophanes’ classic anti-war play.

Directed by Brian Evans

The Forum Theater                                                                                       February 20-February 28, 2013

 

The Rose Tattoo by Tennessee Williams

When her husband dies, Serafina delle Rose sequesters herself from the world. But as her daughter comes of age and pursues the affections of a sailor, will Serafina allow young Rosa’s love to blossom? This comedy from Tennessee Williams explores the price of devotion and the lies that love engenders.

Directed by Emily Penick (MFA 2013 candidate)                                           The Baker Theater (Kantner Hall) March 27-April 6, 2013
