 Academic Workshop Performance - Tower Theater


Ostensibly the story of a pioneer woman and her six daughters, QUILTERS blends a series of interrelated scenes into a rich mosaic which captures the sweep and beauty, the terror and joy, the harsh challenge and abiding rewards of frontier life. Illuminating stories contained in various patches or "blocks" with music, dance and drama, the action depicts the lot of women on the frontier: girlhood, marriage, childbirth, spinsterhood, twisters, fire, illness and death. But, with this, there is also love, warmth, rich and lively humor and the moving spectacle of simple human dignity and steadfastness in the face of adversity.

  • Oct. 13, 14, 15*, 16 - 7:30 p.m.
  • Oct. 15, 16~ - 2 p.m.
    General Admission - $5
  • Recommended for children 12 years of age or older.

Over the River & Through the Woods
Academic Performance


Love of family is the mantra that runs throughout the endearingly warm-hearted comedy, Over the River and Through the Woods. Nick, a single, Italian-American marketing executive from New Jersey, routinely visits his four grandparents every Sunday for family dinner, which is governed by "the three F's" - family, faith, and food. One Sunday he has an exciting, though devastating announcement: He's being promoted to a new position in Seattle. His grandparents are devastated and quickly concoct a series of hilarious schemes to keep Nick from leaving, including introducing him to the woman of his dreams.

Guys & Dolls
Academic Performance


Colorful characters and a bright score combine to make Guys and Dolls a celebration of American musical theatre! High rolling gamblers, mission dolls, 14-year engagements and an infamous floating Craps game all come together for a fun-filled romantic comedy based on a story and characters by Damon Runyon.  Considered by many to be the perfect oddball romantic musical, Guys And Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, but, after many zany mishaps, everyone ends up right where they belong.

  • Dec. 2, 3, 9*, 10 - 7:30 p.m.
  • Dec. 3, 10 - 2 p.m.
  • Dec. 4, 11~ - 3 p.m.

Seussical: The Musical
Academic Performance


Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once On This Island and Ragtime) have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie, and a little boy with a big imagination--Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

  • Feb. 24, 25, March 3*, 4 - 7:30 p.m.
  • Feb. 25, March 4 - 2 p.m.
  • Feb. 26, March 5~ - 3 p.m.

She Stoops to Conquer
Academic Performance


A Comedy of Manners first performed in 1773, She Stoops to Conquer is a rich comedy of great warmth. It paints a picture of an admirable society, but one that is deeply in need of revision that comes through the agency of a wonderful young woman, Kate Hardcastle. Kate is a character in the tradition of great comedies like Much Ado About Nothing, The Taming of the Shrew and Lysistrata that offer up the wisdom and wiles of women as the means of curing problems both great and small. When the male world is caught up in the ridiculous conventions men themselves have imposed, it takes a woman like Kate to sort it all out. She Stoops to Conquer is a break away from the sentimental comedies of the time and was what Goldsmith called, a “Laughing Comedy” with more dependence on the action and actors than on the language.

  • March 24, 25, 31*, April 1 - 7:30 p.m.
  • March 25, April 1 - 2 p.m.
  • March 26, April 2~ - 3 p.m.
  • Recommended for children 12 years of age or older.
