Theatre Season

2015-2016 Theatre Season




April 8-10, 14-16  |   Potter Hall Theatre

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs ranging in style from pop to vaudeville is employed as the story of Jesus’s life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’s messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.  Directed by Tee Quillin





The Marriage of Figaro

February 19-21 & 25-27  |  Potter Hall Theatre


He’s getting married in the morning, and the enterprising Figaro (servant, barber, professional troublemaker) couldn’t be happier. But with everybody scheming to come between him and his bride, Figaro will need all his cunning to make it down the aisle. Directed by Trevor Belt





December 10-13   |   Kemper Recital Hall (located in Spratt)

All 37 plays in 97 minutes! Three madcap people in tights weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories, and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter. An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) was London’s longest-running comedy.  Directed by Tee Quillin




October 9-11 & 15-17  |  Potter Hall Theatre

The scene is the Kit Kat Klub, a night club in Berlin, as the 1920′s are drawing to a close. The Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience to the show and assures them that, whatever their troubles, they will forget them at the Cabaret. Cliff, a young American writer, meets Ernst, a German who surprises Cliff by putting his briefcase among Cliff’s luggage at the German border. Musical numbers include Willkommen, Cabaret, Mein Herr, Maybe This Time, The Money Song and Two Ladies. When we revisit the Klub at the end, much is changed…  Directed by Carol Myers
