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.

The Velveteen Rabbit
OnStage Children’s Theatre Education Program
December 6 & 13 at 7 p.m; December 7 & 14 at 2 p.m.
Although it is the most modest toy in the nursery, the Velveteen Rabbit earns the love of a young boy and learns about the joys and pain of becoming “Real.” A brand new theatrical adaptation of Margery Williams’ classic book springs to magical life in this enchanting musical about love, loss and self-esteem. Great care was taken to expand the story into a musical theatre work to ensure it is enjoyable for the entire family, while staying true to the style, essence and powerful themes found in the original story.

By Tennessee Williams. Amanda Wingfield is a faded, tragic remnant of Southern gentility who lives with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura.

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!
