Dramatic Works

A Man of No Importance
October 13-18
Join an amateur group of actors determined to stage Oscar Wilde’s controversial play Salome at their local church in this charming musical. In the process of fighting for the play, the director, Alfie Byrne, is forced to confront his own sexuality.

November 18—21
Astonishing in its breadth, Arcadia travels seamlessly between 1809 and the present embracing elements of haunting romantic tragedy, suspenseful mystery, and hilarious sex farce. Tom Stoppard’s dazzling comic masterpiece is among the most intelligent and poignantly human plays of our time.

As You Like It
December 4—11
“All the world’s a stage” in Shakespeare’s rollicking comedy as Rosalind flees persecution in her uncle’s court only to find love in the Forest of Arden. Don’t miss this sweet and poignant romantic comedy.
