The Royal Family
by Edna Ferber and George S. Kaufman
dir. Burt McCollom
February 28, March 1-2, & 6-8
A thinly veiled portrait of the legendary Barrymores, another renowned "Royal Family of Broadway", the Cavendish clan compromises three generations of legendary American actors. When the Cavendish name and reputation is threatened, Dowager Fanny rules with a combination of strength, wit, courage, and a sharp tongue, proving the "show" indeed, "must (and will) go on."

A Midsummer Night's Dream
by William Shakespeare
dir. Francis RTM Boyle

Imagination runs wild in this play as the impossible becomes reality. Shakespeare's comedy of two mixed up couples, a handful of bumbling, would-be actors, and plenty of meddling forest magic, will lead you on a hilarious and fantastical journey.
