It Can’t Happen Here

June 2 - 23 
  Can’t Happen Here"By Tony Taccone and Bennett S. Cohen, Based Upon the Novel by Sinclair Lewis 

More relevant than ever before.
 
Lewis’ tale keeps insinuating itself into our lives because of its insight into American politics. It tells of the ascent of a demagogue who becomes president of the United States by promising to return the country to greatness. Sound familiar? A frightening reminder of just how fragile democracies really are.

As the result of the curse of a once-beautiful witch, a baker ,  and his wife are childless. Three days before the rise of a blue moon, they venture into the forest to find the ingredients that will reverse the spell and restore the witch's beauty: a milk-white cow, hair as yellow as corn, a blood-red cape, and a slipper of gold. During their journey, they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack, each one on a quest to fulfill a wish.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
June 21-July 15  

Regional Premiere!
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
by Simon Stephens
 
Winner of five Tony Awards including Best Play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a truly remarkable theatrical experience that will change how you experience everyday life.

Based on the international best-seller, the play takes us inside the mind of Christopher Boone, a 15-year-old math savant who talks in loud declamatory sentences, doesn't do "chat," and can't stand to be touched. When he discovers one night that his  neighbor's dog has been murdered, Christopher sets out to solve the crime, embarking on a thrilling journey that will upend both his world, and ours.

"The Secret Garden"

Jun 23 - Jul 14 
The Secret Garden,  Book and Lyrics by Marsha Norman, Music by Lucy Simon,  Western Stage MAINSTAGE
 
An enchanting musical, based on a beloved Victorian children’s story, with a soaring musical score, this is the story of ten-year-old orphan Mary Lennox, who is sent off to the Yorkshire Highlands to live with reclusive, long-suffering relatives she has never met. Mary’s feisty and determined spirit peels away the gloomy sadness that surrounds her uncles and invalid cousin showing us the power that “one small girl” can have when she “wants things to grow.”
