As It Is In Heaven

Oct. 10 – Oct. 15, 2019

Academic Performance – The Box Theater

AS IT IS IN HEAVEN takes place in the 1830’s Shaker society of Pleasant Hill, Kentucky, a society set in ordered ways. Their once dramatic form of worship has by now developed into routine. The arrival of Fanny upsets the harmony; the Sisters suspect her to be a “winter Shaker,” one who suddenly converts when life gets too hard on the farm. Fanny sees angels in the meadow, and soon all the young women are receiving spiritual “gifts,” completely upsetting the community. The leaders question Fanny’s intentions and honesty: Is this a resurgence of the original Shaker celebration or something manufactured by Fanny so that she can remain with the Shakers?

Sense and Sensibility

Feb. 21 – March 1, 2020

Academic Performance – The Box Theater

At the dawn of the Regency, two sisters, Elinor and Marianne, are thrust into poverty by their brother’s scheming and manipulative wife. Reduced to living with their mother in a tiny cottage, their prospects for marriage nearly ruined, the sisters are nevertheless courted by dynamic men, each with a dark secret. In the midst of all is the outrageous Mrs. Jennings, whose gossip-mongering creates hilarious misunderstandings. As appealing as it was in 1811, SENSE AND SENSIBILITY is filled with romance, witty banter and heartbreaking tenderness that captures audiences to this day.

The Drowsy Chaperone

April 17 – April 26, 2020

Academic Performance – Tower Theater

With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and THE DROWSY CHAPERONE begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, and more, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight. Hailed by New York Magazine as “The Perfect Broadway Musical,” The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.
