Destiny of Desire
June 2, 2020 - June 21, 2020
On a stormy night in Mexico, two baby girls are born — one into a life of privilege and the other into poverty. When the newborns are swapped by a former beauty queen with an insatiable lust for power, the stage is set for outrageous misfortunes to grow into one remarkable destiny. Full of lively music and dance this is a show not to be missed.
From the much-loved playwright of The Foreigner comes a new production of one of the funniest plays ever written. The twists and turns of this madcap comedy lead to an ending that leaves you feeling happily hoodwinked!
Winner of four Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, this musical sensation played to record-breaking sell-out crowds on Broadway telling the story of one of the most unique characters to ever hit the stage.
Written by actress-playwright Danai Gurira (Black Panther, The Walking Dead) comes a stunning tale of hope and resilience set in the midst of the Liberian Civil War. Nominated for six Tony Awards, including Best Play.
Please note: This show has been postponed until a later date as yet to be determined. Pulitzer Prize Finalist Dael Orlandersmith’s ('Until the Flood') powerful poetry is intermixed with stunning original movement, music and evocative projected imagery to create a wholly unique and stunning world premiere production.
One of the best-known works in Shakespeare’s canon, our Emerging Professional Residents bring a fast-paced 90-minute adaptation of Hamlet that asks: What are the bitter side effects of sweet revenge? This unique production will feature a different aesthetic for each of the five acts of the piece providing a full spectrum of styles for the Bard’s powerful words.
Hootenanny: The Musicale is a fun and foot stomping evening featuring David Lutken and the Seat of the Pants Band.
Inspired by David’s storied music career and his own personal ancestry, Hootenanny features songs like “Shenandoah,”“St. Louis Blues,”“The Wabash Cannonball” and “The Times They Are a-Changin’.”
