Performance Details

The Wizard of OzJoin our middle school winter class as they perform L. Frank Baum’s classic The Wizard of Oz, one of America’s most beloved works of literature. Part timeless adventure, part offbeat satire of American at the turn of the century, this non-musical adaptation follows Dorothy and her rag-tag companions through a wondrous world of munchkins, witches, flying monkeys, killer trees, and a very unusual wizard.

The Taming of the Shrew Our most advanced winter class, Shakespeare in Performance, takes on The Taming of the Shrew, Shakespeare’s classic battle between the sexes. Watch our lovers disguise themselves, trick one another, struggle for power, and woo, all in the name of love. When the games and wedding celebrations have subsided, then true identities are revealed—for better and for worse.

The Comedy of Errors — In Shakespeare’s gleefully ridiculous Comedy of Errors, two pairs of identical twins dodge mistaken identities, irate wives, sinister moneylenders, dangerous Dukes, mysterious nuns, and the forces of the law in a ludicrous four-way identity crisis.

The Frog Prince — This summer, the Commedia Troupe performs its own original adaptation of The Frog Prince.  The beloved tale of love overcoming appearances is re-imagined with masks, music, improvisation, acrobatics, slapstick, and irreverent comedy.

All performances are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
