In America, That is to say No Where: A devised piece based on Ubu Roi by Alfred Jarry

This new work is based on Ubu Roi, which caused a riotous response in the audience when it opened and closed in Paris at the Théâtre de l'Œuvre on December 10, 1896. It will be a wild, bizarre and comedic play, significant for the way it overturns cultural rules, norms, and conventions. 

Directed by Melanie Stewart, written by Brian Grace-Duff

Hair: The Legendary Rock Musical

Book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot.

Celebrating its 50th annerversary, this show as, “a product of the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution  of the late 1960s, several of its songs became anthems of the anti-Vietnam War peace movement. The musical's profanity, its depiction of the use of illegal drugs, its treatment of sexuality, its irreverence for the American flag, and its nude scene caused much comment and controversy” 

Directed by Chris Roche, choreographed by Dawn Bazemore

April 5 -6 and 11-13 at 8PM, April 7 at 2PM
