Metamorphoses

An Evening of French One Acts

featuring

The Bald Soprano

by Eugene Ionesco

and

No Exit

by Jean-Paul Sartre - November 21-24, 2013

This Absurdist event will begin with the philosophical melodrama, No Exit, which follows three souls unable to admit their past offenses.  After finding out that they can't leave their room, they discover that hell is other people.  This will be followed by The Bald Soprano. This comedy focuses on the middle class and their lack of communication illustrating how words themselves can become meaningless.

Macbeth

by William Shakespeare - February 20-23, 2014

This play is considered one of Shakespeare’s four greatest tragedies. It features witchcraft, ambition, murder, mayhem, and revenge. Macbeth is about a man aided by his equally ambitious wife, who lusted after power, stole the throne of Scotland, and threw the country into chaos through his evil reign. In the end, his own greed and guilt defeat him.

Please note that due to inclement weather, auditions for Macbeth have been rescheduled until Tuesday, December 10 at 7 pm.

Where's Charley?

Music and Lyrics by  Frank Loesser,
Book by George Abbott  - April 24-27, 2014

A musical version of Brandon Thomas’ stage farce, Charley’s Aunt takes place in 1892. Charley and Jack invite the young and winsome Kitty and Amy to lunch under the chaperoning eye of Donna Lucia, Charley’s wealthy aunt. But when Donna Lucia doesn’t show, a desperate Charley disguises himself as his aunt so the young ladies can visit, unaware they’ve brought a chaperon of their own: Amy’s stuffy uncle, who promptly falls for Charley’s aunt-like charms! Then the real aunt shows up, and it’s all downhill from there: quick changes, fast talking, marriage proposals, compromising situations and rowdy hilarity.

This production is sponsored in part by the
Richard T. Brittingham Musical Theatre Endowed Lectureship.
