September 2016 - Frankenstein

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Directed by Ricardo Pitts-Wiley
Sept. 28 – Oct. 1, 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 1 & 2, 2 p.m.
The Helen Forman Theatre

Guest Director Ricardo Pitts-Wiley begins his stage adaptation of FRANKENSTEIN with a question:  What do we do with the monsters we create, and what do they do with us?  This very unique adaptation forces us to ask, "Who are the real monsters?" and to further ask, "How are the monsters of today created?"  These are important, essential questions, especially since we seem to be surrounded by more and more monsters every day.

As You Like It by William Shakespeare
Directed by Tom Gleadow
Nov. 16 – 19, 7:30 p.m.
Nov. 19 & 20, 2 p.m.
The Helen Forman Theatre

A delightful cast of beloved characters romp through one of Shakespeare's most enduring comedies.  Unable to act on their feelings and forced into exile in the Forest of Arden, lovers Rosalind and Orlando become entangled in a beguiling game of love, lust, and mistaken identity.  Gender roles, nature, and politics are confused in a play that reflects on how bewildering yet utterly pleasurable life can be.  The play contains one of Shakespeare's most famous monologues, "All the World's a Stage."
