The Diary of Anne Frank

By Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett Adapted by Wendy Kesselman
Directed by Jillian Keiley

The inspirational true story of a Jewish girl and her family hiding from the Nazis in a secret annex in Amsterdam. Innovative staging brings new life to this timeless drama of courage, compassion and the indomitable human spirit.

Possible Worlds

by John Mighton
Directed by Mitchell Cushman

What happens to all the other lives we might have led? And what if one could sample them all? This blend of romantic thriller, science fiction and whodunit is above all a love story that spans several universes – or does it?

The Sound of Music

By Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse
Lyrics By Oscar Hammerstein II
Music By Richard Rodgers

Overflowing with such beloved songs as “My Favorite Things” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” this heart-warming family musical tells an inspiring story of the discovery of love – and a daring bid for freedom.

She Stoops to Conquer

By Oliver Goldsmith
Directed by Martha Henry

If the beau she admires is too shy to talk to her, what’s the daughter of a country squire to do? Pretend she’s a barmaid, of course. From the elegant 18th century comes a classic comedy the whole family will love.

Love's Labour's Lost

By William Shakespeare
Directed by John Caird

Four young men swear off women to devote themselves to learning – only to fall for four attractive newcomers.  Shakespeare’s language reaches its most virtuosic heights in a vivacious comedy that will dazzle and delight.
