A Midsummer Night’s Dream
March 4 – 6, 10-12, 2016
Directed by Stephen Trovillion Smith
If you’re walking through the woods and you see a woman making out with an ass, you’re probably having A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM.
Lysander loves Hermia and Hermia loves Lysander. Helena loves Demetrius but Demetrius loves Hermia. When all four flee to the woods in pursuit of each other, they end up in the middle of a fight between the king and queen of the fairies and partners switch again as all hell breaks loose. Throw in some amateur actors rehearsing a play in the middle of all this and you’re having A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM.

Semper Fi, Do or Die
It's Nov. 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one final boys’ night of debauchery, partying, and maybe a little trouble. But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of compassion. This award-winning and hauntingly beautiful musical contains what critics call "the most delicate, surprising, musically satisfying score since Spring Awakening."
