February 14 - 24, 2019

All for one, and one for all! Join d’Artagnan in his quest to join the King’s Royal Musketeers in this new adaptation of the classic coming-of-age story. Rivas’ retelling plants itself firmly in 17th-century France yet provides a fresh, contemporary sensibility — one where men and women are equal in their ability to serve the crown. Join us for a night of intrigue, swashbuckling and romance. A regional premiere. Featuring Equity guests Marc Pouhé and J. Ben Wolfe.

April 4 - 14, 2019

Meet Wendla, a young girl yearning to understand what it means to be a woman; Mortiz, a troubled young boy struggling to come to terms with his new desires; and Melchior, a highly intelligent atheist with a desire to rebel. In an electrifying fusion of morality and rock and roll, this unforgettable musical explores the journey of eleven young people from adolescence to adulthood with poignancy and passion. Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, The New York Observer calls Spring Awakening “the best new musical in a generation.” Warning: adult themes and language. Not suitable for all audiences and not recommended for those under 17.

“…bold, funny and inviting.”  — The New York Times
