By William Shakespeare
Directed by Michelle Polgar

Shakespeare’s last and darkest comedy is a moral tale of “might versus right” that examines who sins most in a congregation of murderers, pimps, politicians, whores, nuns and dukes. A thought-provoking, funny, rewarding evening of theater.
By Oscar Wilde
Directed by Richard Robichaux

Join four young suitors as they negotiate mislaid babies, mistaken identities, secret engagements, an overbearing mother and some of the wittiest wordplay ever tossed over afternoon tea. This delightful comedy of manners features guest artists Barbara Chisholm, Robert Faires and Irene White.
Music by Lucy Simon; Book and lyrics by Marsha Norman; Based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Directed by Robert Westenberg

11-year-old Mary, orphaned by a cholera outbreak, is sent from India to Scotland to live with her reclusive widower uncle. Lost in their grief, Mary and her family struggle to regain their footing.
