Our 15th Season
Speed-the-Plow,David Mamet, directed by Barbe Marshall - October 12 - 21, 2012
A modern-day Faust, David Mamet's brutal satire of the film industry is a study of male culture, buddies, bravura, comic bluster, feverish energy, and high-octane acting. When a Hollywood producer is forced to choose between corporate and personal values against a backdrop of loyalty, idealism, manipulation, and sex, he finds himself questioning which side to take in the game, or whether to play at all.
Return to the Forbidden Planet, by Bob Carlton, directed by Laura Bidgood - December 7-16, 2012
A classic rock jukebox musical that boldly goes where Shakespeare and Science Fiction have never gone before! Updating William Shakespeare's The Tempest and setting it in the far-flung future, Return to the Forbidden Planet revels in the glory days of rock and roll. You'll tap your toes, you'll sing along, you'll rock out to infinity . . . and beyond?
Completely Hollywood (abridged), by Reed Martin & Austin Tichenor, directed by Phil Gonzales - February 15-24, 2013
Three actors, 187 films, 100 years of Hollywood history. Completely Hollywood (abridged) analyzes in-depth the greatest movies of all time (actual depth and greatness may vary). Think you can do a better job? Let's see you get up on stage (please do not attempt to get on the stage)!
The Mystery of Edwin Drood, by Rupert Holmes, directed by Matt McNabb - March 22-April 7, 2013
Based on Charles Dickens' unfinished story of greed, murder and madness. This raucous and bawdy musical asks the audience to finish the tale, find the killer and have a rollicking good time. Who killed Edwin Drood? You tell us!
Five Women Wearing the Same Dress, by Alan Ball, directed by Mishia Burns Edwards - May 3-19, 2013
During an ostentatious wedding reception five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the women's spirit.
