Upcoming Events

Some Girl(s)
The Lab Theatre
October 2-11, 2015

Guy, a newly engaged author, is travelling the country looking up old girlfriends in an attempt to make amends for their past heartbreak at his hands. As his parade of broken relationships unfolds, a much darker side of human ambition is revealed. Guy forces us to explore individualism, selfishness, power, and manipulation, ending with the question: In the pursuit of self-fulfillment, what are we willing to do not only for love, but to it?

A Chorus Line
The Fallon Theatre
October 16-25, 2015

It’s a harrowing experience every hopeful dancer knows all too well – dancing and singing their hearts out for a spot in the chorus of a Broadway show. In an unconventional twist, a Broadway Director goes beyond the standard “5,6,7,8” and asks each dancer to reflect on the experiences that led them to the world of the stage. Poignant, touching, personal, humorous, and heart-wrenching, this nine-time Tony Award-winning show delves into the dreams and fears of the dancers, revealing what they have done and would do for love.

Twelfth Night
The Lab Theatre
October 30 – November 8, 2015

A favorite among William Shakespeare’s comedies, Twelfth Night delivers love in all its forms. Twins Viola and Sebastian are separated by a shipwreck during a storm and cast to opposite sides of the land of Illyria. The ensuing tale of mistaken identities, misplaced love, and a comedic rivalry carries the audience, laughing and sighing, toward their happily-ever-after. Shakespeare’s madcap portrayal of the trials and tribulations of romance brings to light love’s ability to make us see ourselves in ways we never considered.
