Pride and Prejudice

by Kate Hamil, based on the novel by Jane Austen

Directed by Emmalee Riegler




December 9th - 11th at 7:30 PM

December 12th at 2:30 PM

"This isn’t your grandmother’s Austen! Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this P&P for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life. The outspoken Lizzy Bennet is determined to never marry, despite mounting pressure from society. But can she resist love, especially when that vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aggravating Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?! Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life than it does in this effervescent adaptation. Because what turns us into greater fools…than the high-stakes game of love?" - Dramatists Play Service




The Spongebob Musical

by Kyle Jarrow, Tina Landau

Directed by Danny Devlin

Auditions: January 10th and 11th at 6:00 PM in the Sidney J Lee Auditorium

Performances April 6th - 9th at 7:30 PM & April 10th at 2:30 PM in the Sidney J Lee Auditorium

"Adapted from the iconic Nickelodeon series! SpongeBob, Patrick, Sandy, Squidward and all of Bikini Bottom face total annihilation—until a most unexpected hero rises to take center stage." - Concord Theatricals
