MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, invites the audience to join Don Pedro, Prince of Aragon, on an eventful visit to the estate of Leonato, Governor of Messina.

The Diary of Anne Frank

Mar 22 - Mar 31, 2019

Academic Performance - The Box Theater

In this transcendently powerful story, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence—their fear, their hope, their laughter, and their grief.

Annie Get Your Gun

Apr 12 - Apr 28, 2019

Academic Performance - The Tower Theater

Annie Oakley is the best shot around, and she manages to support her little brother and sisters by selling the game she hunts. When Col. Buffalo Bill discovers her, he persuades this sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show. It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction, which, while good for business, is bad for romance. Butler hightails it off to join a rival show, his bruised ego leading the way, but is ultimately pitted against Annie in a final shoot-out.
