ON THE MAIN-STAGE:
THE ADDAMS FAMILY
A MUSICAL COMEDY with story by Martin Brickman and Rick Elice and music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa
October 2-November 1, 2015
The wonderfully macabre Addams family is put to the test when Wednesday, the ultimate princess of darkness, grows up and falls for a “normal” young man from a respectable family. If that weren’t enough, she tells her father, Gomez, a secret he must hide from his adored wife, Morticia. When the boyfriend and his parents come to dinner, they plunge the Addams family into a night that is sure to change the family forever. TICKETS
A CHRISTMAS TWIST
A COMEDY written by Doug Armstrong, Keith Cooper and Maureen Morley
November 27-December 20, 2015
An irreverent mash-up of the beloved Charles Dickens’ tales A Christmas Carol and Oliver Twist—with an absurd cast of characters including Little Orphan Annie. The result is a humorous parody of Christmas stories about the poor versus the rich that still manages to spread the spirit of the season.
IN THE NEXT ROOM or the vibrator play
A COMEDY written by Sarah Ruhl
February 12-March 6, 2016
A touching and hilarious story about a young doctor and his wife in the Victorian age. Dr. Givings is obsessed with the marvels of technology and what they can do for his patients. He isn’t sure exactly how the vibrators help the women he treats–but they keep coming back. The only woman who isn’t helped is his own wife, who longs to connect with him – but not electrically.
“The Letters” by John W. Lowell
Written by John W. Lowell
April 8-May 1, 2016
A Ministry Director calls Anna, a bureaucrat, into his office for a meeting. It is 1931 in the Soviet Union and things are not what they seem. The meeting becomes a suspenseful verbal and psychological game of cat-and-mouse in which being the last one to flinch may mean to the difference between life and death. Based on Soviet efforts to edit composer Tchaikovsky’s letters. This thriller is a vivid slice of paranoid life under Stalin.
