Coming Up at the Theatre


The Book of Will

By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Sean Byrd

(IN REPERTORY with The Revolutionists)

April 4-6 and 11-13 at 7:30pm

April 6 and 13 at 2:00pm


Without William Shakespeare, we wouldn’t have literary masterpieces like Romeo and Juliet. But without Henry Condell and John Heminges, we would have lost half of Shakespeare’s plays forever! After the death of their friend and mentor, the two actors are determined to compile the First Folio and preserve the words that shaped their lives. They’ll just have to borrow, beg, and band together to get it done. Amidst the noise and color of Elizabethan London, The Book of Will finds an unforgettable true story of love, loss, and laughter, and sheds new light on a man you may think you know.

The Revolutionists

By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Amanda White

(IN REPERTORY with The Book of Will)

April 4-6 and 11-13 at 7:30pm

April 6 and 13 at 2:00pm


Four women lose their heads in this irreverent comedy set during the French Revolution. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremism of 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world.

Past Performances from 2023-24 Theatre Season


By Eric Pfeffinger
Directed by Tolu Ekisola

Madelyn and Keenan are NPR-listening, latte-sipping blue-staters who are planning a family. Or they were, anyway, until the fertility clinic accidentally implanted their fertilized embryo in another uterus — a uterus belonging to a small-government, churchgoing, NRA cardholder. Can these ideologically hostile couples make it through 9 months of gestation together?

The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical

Book by Joe Tracz, Music and Lyrics by Rob Rokicki
Adapted from the book The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
Directed by Sean Byrd

As the half-blood son of a Greek god, Percy Jackson has newly-discovered powers he can't control, a destiny he doesn't want, and a mythology textbook's worth of monsters on his trail. When Zeus's master lightning bolt is stolen and Percy becomes the prime suspect, he must find and return the bolt to prove his innocence and prevent a war between the gods. Adapted from the best-selling book The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan and featuring a thrilling original rock score, The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is an action-packed mythical adventure!
