2015 – 2016 Season

September 25 – October 18
SHIPWRECKED! An Entertainment—The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (as Told by Himself)
By Donald Margulies                                                           
Directed by Sam Osheroff

Tropical monsoons! Giant squids! Adventure on the high seas!  Pulitzer prize-winner Donald Margulies pens an unabashed love letter to the simple pleasures of the old fashioned yarn.  Join our hero, Louis De Rougemont as he spins a fantastic tale of shipwreck and survival in this tribute to imagination and theatrical invention.  Suitable for all ages!

November 6 – 22
By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Steven Marzolf

Viewed through a veil of memory and regret, the Wingfield family struggles to negotiate the past, the future and each other in depression-era St. Louis.  Both dreamlike and shatteringly real, Tennessee William's iconic American classic examines a family on the edge of the abyss. 

December 3 - 20
Written and performed by Janet Schlapkohl                                 
Directed by Tim Budd

In her memoir of a Midwestern girlhood, local favorite Janet Schlapkohl recalls coming to grips with family and femininity at a time and place when social roles were strictly defined.  Full of the playwright's warmth and hallmark humor.

January 28 - February 21
By William McCauley                                               
Directed by Sam Osheroff

It's everyone for themselves in this hysterically funny, biting farce about greed, lust and the family ties that bind.

March 4 - 13

WALKING THE WIRE                                                                   

Our perennial smorgasbord of solo selections offers yet another feast of mouth-watering monologues

April 1 – 17
By Mark St. Germain
Directed by Ron Clark

A professional dancer with a career-ending injury is thrown for a loop when a geoscientist with Asperger's syndrome offers her an absurd sum to teach him how to dance. This funny, unsentimental and honest romance takes a hard look at what constitutes "normal."
