One of the funniest farces ever, Noises Off presents a cast of second rate touring actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On. A manic menagerie of slamming doors, onstage-offstage intrigue, and red herrings. Chaotic glory!

By Charles L. Mee | Directed by Linden Little

A contemporary collage filled with joy and chicken jokes. This off-kilter work explores American themes within a pop art frame. America as art…and watermelon, baseball, checkers, and ineffable beauty.

By Jon Robin Baitz | Directed by Joey Pogue

When Brooke Wyeth returns home announcing a planned memoir that exposes a tragic family event, she draws a line in the sand. Alternately cruel and compassionate, with a contemporary political sheen, join the Wyeth family as Baitz keeps our sympathies shifting from one character to another. Sharp, witty, and messy, just like most families. For mature audiences.

By Henrik Ibsen | Adapted by Arthur Miller | Directed by Joey Pogue

One man’s honesty in the face of environmental danger causes him to be
persecuted and ridiculed even by his closest allies when his town’s tourism
economy is threatened. Catch this powerful drama – as relevant today, perhaps more so, as when it premiered in 1883.
