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

This comedy from Tennessee Williams explores the price of devotion and the lies that love engenders.
