Hamlet

HAMLET
By William Shakespeare

Prince Hamlet is a reluctant hero with impossible choices. Returning home after his father's death, Hamlet is unsettled by his mother's speedy remarriage to his uncle. When the ghost of Hamlet's father appears and reveals that he was murdered by the man who now wears his crown. The ghost commands Hamlet to murder Claudius in revenge. But can you trust a ghost? Hamlet fakes madness while searching for the truth. He's surrounded by faithful friends (or are they friendly spies?), an anguished court, and a troupe of oddly relevant actors. This revenge tragedy brims with intrigue, trickery, heartache, and more than a little humor.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
By William Shakespeare

Shakespeare’s tale of lovers who evade parental rule and city law by escaping into the forest, only to be transformed by mischievous fairies.  Reality and illusion interchange in the woods, as do love and hate, clarity and confusion.  As the tricks are reversed and the couples reunite, we delight in their wedding entertainment provided by a set of amateur actors.

Learned Ladies

LEARNED LADIES
By Moliere

The illustrious poet Trissotan has come to stay with the lady Philamente and her family - and with him, he's brought all the good things in life: learning, knowledge, panache, and style.  So what if he's also a treacherous, self-serving scoundrel?  Will Philamente's long-suffering family unmask the fraud before it's too late?  Or will Trissotan get away with Philamente's money, savings - and even her daughter's hand in marriage?

Orpheus & Eurydice

ORPHEUS & EURYDICE
By Judith Walsh White

Orpheus plays the most beautiful music mortals or gods have ever heard. He and Eurydice, a nymph, fall madly in love. Their worlds come crashing down when Eurydice is bitten by a snake. Though he can produce powerful music, Orpheus is powerless to save her from the snake's venom and she dies. Heartbroken, Orpheus descends into the bowels of the Underworld, seeking his love once again. Can their love conquer death, or will Eurydice be left to waste away in the Underworld?
