Student Body

October 13-15, 18-21, 2017
Studio Theatre

Directed by Stephen Trovillion Smith

A group of college students finds video of what looks like a rape at a party they attended. Was the rapist somebody they know? Does someone in the group know more than they’re willing to admit? As the group argues whether they should call the cops or delete the file it becomes clear that everyone has something to lose.

Spamalot

November 10-12, 15-18, 2017
Jenkins Theatre

Directed by Mark Hanson
Choreographed by Jeannie Hill
Music Direction by Alan Patrick Kenny

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls? The 2005 Broadway production won 3 Tony Awards including "Best Musical" and received 14 Tony Award nominations. "[Spamalot] exploits about every opportunity that a piece of musical theater can offer, all the while laughing at itself for being a musical." - Star Telegram

Originally devised at Chicago’s Lookingglass Theatre Company by Mary Zimmerman, Metamorphoses brings the familiar tales of Roman poet Ovid to stunning theatrical life. Set in and around a pool of water onstage, Metamorphoses brings vibrant physicality to timeless mythological stories of love, loss, and transformation.

Nominated for three 2002 Tony Awards, including Best Play, Metamorphoses mingles ancient archetypes with contemporary vernacular to create what Time called "the theater event of the year."

On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and even a wedding, his friends – "those good and crazy people [his] married friends" – explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. The habitually single Robert is forced to question his commitment to bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions. From musical theatre's most renowned composer, Company is largely regarded as a trailblazer of the dark-comedy, modern-musical genre and the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Lyrics and Best Book.
