Pilots of the Purple Twilight
by Steve Kluger
Directed by Brian Westerley
The entire action of this play takes place in the first-class smoking lounge of the
R.M.S. Titanic, 350 miles southeast of Newfoundland, on that fateful evening of
April 14, 1912. This historically accurate comedy of manners finds nine people who
have absolutely no business knowing one another, yet crossing paths during the
two hours between “Iceberg, dead ahead!” and the captain’s command for all
passengers to put on life jackets.
June 20 - 30
Annual Youth Production
Once on This Island
by Lynn Ahrens & Stephen Flaherty
Directed by Tim Anderson & Maggie Majercik
This highly original and theatrical adaptation of the popular fairy tale, The Little
Mermaid, is almost non-stop song and dance. The show tells the story of Ti Moune,
a peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a wealthy boy from the
other side of her island. When Daniel is returned to his people, the fantastical gods
who rule the island guide Ti Moune on a quest to test the strength of her love
against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred, and death.
September 13 - 28
by Sybille Pearson, David Shire, & Richard Maltby, Jr.
Directed by Ryan Bergeron
Is there anything more exciting, frightening and utterly transformational than
impending parenthood? Baby tells the story of three couples on a university
campus as they deal with the painful, rewarding, and agonizingly funny
consequences of this universal experience. There are the college students, barely
at the beginning of their adult lives; the thirty-somethings, having trouble conceiving
but determined to try; and the middle-aged parents, looking forward to seeing their
last child graduate from college when a night of unexpected passion lands them
back where they started.
November 8 - 23
