The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

A New Adaptation by Laura Eason
Based on the Novel by Mark Twain
Directed by Josh Blann

October 8 – 12, 2014

Join Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn and Becky Thatcher in the greatest summer adventure ever told in this imaginative, highly theatrical adaptation of Mark Twain's incomparable classic. Featuring the thrill of mischief-making, the fickleness of first love, the cold shivers that linger after an adventure gone very wrong and the unbridled joy at discovering real buried treasure, this story is for anyone who has ever been a kid and celebrates all that is grand and glorious about childhood.

Appropriate for all audiences.


Be Aggressive

By Annie Weisman
Directed by J. Brent Alford

December 3 – 7, 2014

Be Aggressive takes place in the Southern California community of Vista Del Sol, where life was like paradise until Laura's mother is killed in a gruesome hit and run accident. The teenager is thrown into the roles of wife to her distant workaholic father and mother to her precocious younger sister Hannah. Laura struggles to cope with grief, sudden adulthood, and the hell of high school life. She throws herself with total abandon into the world of cheerleading when she befriends popular cheerleader Leslie, a girl with a terrifying zeal for all things cheer. Leslie convinces Laura to run away with her dead mother's Mobil card and some stolen cash to the "Spirit Institute of the South," a hardcore, take-no-prisoners school of cheerleading.

Be Aggressive is the offbeat telling of a classic tale of journey and catharsis in the complicated life of a teenage girl.

Strong language and adult content.

A comedy by A. R. Gurney
Directed by J. Brent Alford

April 29 – May 3, 2015

Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after 22 years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg's career as a financial trader is winding down while Kate's career as a public school English teacher is beginning to offer her more opportunities.

Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name "Sylvia" on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn't understand the relationship between man and dog.

The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.

Dramatic literature is stuffed with memorable love scenes, but none is as immediately delicious and dizzy as the one that begins the redeeming affair in A.R. Gurney's new comedy, Sylvia.

Strong language and adult content.
