Jan  14, 15, 16, 17, 18 at 7pm

Genre: Serio-comic


Each act of this full-length play explores different aspects of school testing: High Stakes, a comedy about a student surrounded by inexplicable chaos during a major exam; Honor Bright, a drama dealing with the complexities of cheating; and Wendy's Tale, a comedy about a brilliant student who doesn't test well, and lets her imagination run wild instead.

The Drowsy Chaperone

April 22, 23, 24, 25, 30 and May 1, 2  at 7pm 

Genre:  Musical


The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.  A Man in a Chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.
