By Jane Kendall from the novel by Jane Austen. Set in England during the early 1800’s, five daughters of the Bennet family must be married off! Was ever a mother as put upon as Mrs. Bennet? Jane falls deeply in love with the wealthy Mr. Bingley, and romance might be possible between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy is a very proud young man. He is shocked by mama’s vulgar matchmaking! The attraction between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy eventually triumphs over the pride of one and the prejudice of the other. Directed by Vanessa Nixon Klein (vanessank@gmail.com).  Produced by Louise Fisher.

By Tennessee Williams. Amanda Wingfield is a faded, tragic remnant of Southern gentility who lives with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura. Amanda strives to give meaning and direction to her life and the lives of her children, but her methods are ineffective and irritating. A drama of great tenderness, charm and beauty, THE GLASS MENAGERIE is one of the most famous plays of modern theatre.

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatergoers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Beauty and The Beast) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world. The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II”—after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down-and-out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it BLOOD. Over time Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out-of-this-world origins and intent towards global domination!

The Birds

An Evening of Classic Theatre at the Roxy
October 18 at 7 p.m. and October 19 at 7 p.m.
Tickets:  $12 adults advance ($13 at the door)

Daphne du Maurier’s short story, also the basis for Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film, is boldly adapted by Conor McPherson—a gripping, unsettling, and moving look at human relationships in the face of societal collapse. In an isolated house, strangers Nat and Diane take shelter from relentless masses of attacking birds. Another refugee, the young and attractive Julia, arrives with news of the outside world, but her presence also brings discord. Their survival becomes even more doubtful when paranoia takes hold of the makeshift fortress—an internal threat to match that of the birds outside.  Photo credit: Dawndra Budd

Past 2018 Performances

Desperate Housewives of Shakespeare

OnStage Teen Theatre Education Production
January 19 at 7pm and January 20 at 2pm
Tickets: $9 adults ($10 at the door), $5 children

Okay, these housewives may not be real, but they are desperate. Shakespeare has been manipulating and twisting their lives for six plays now, and they desperately want to escape his evil machinations. But are they desperate enough to commit murder? Shakespeare has been found dead: stabbed, poisoned, starved, choked, bitten by an asp, and even turned into a baardvark. Lady Macbeth, Juliet, Kate, Rosalind, Cleopatra, and Titania all had the means and the motive to kill Shakespeare, but who really did it? This comic tragedy (or is that tragic comedy?) has all of the action of a Shakespearean play but with none of those angsty monologues about the meaning of life.
