        By Thornton Wilder

        Directed by Margaret Baldwin

        Composer/Sound Director, Christopher Hampton

        Homework. First Love. Moonlight. Making Breakfast. Marrying and Dying.

        For the play’s Broadway debut in 1938, Wilder described Our Town as his attempt to present “the life of a village against the life of the stars.” To honor the play’s 80th anniversary, our production takes a fresh look at the play's depiction of small-town American life at the turn of the 20th century. This multi-disciplinary/multi-cultural reimagining teases out connections between then and now and highlights the ties that bind our community.

Her auto-biographical solo-performance, You Are My Sunshine, tells the story of physical and existential transformations that arise after she literally regains her senses.

                Book by Terrence McNally

                Music by Stephen Flaherty

                Directed by Amanda Wansa Morgan
                and Kristyl Tift

                Music Direction by Cristina Dinella

                Ragtime, based on E.L. Doctorow’s distinguished 1975 novel, was called “a triumph for the stage” by TIME and “the best musical in twenty years” by the International Herald Tribune when it premiered on Broadway in 1998. Combining historical figures such as Emma Goldman, Harry Houdini, and Booker
                T. Washington with fictional characters, Ragtime uses diverse
                musical styles to weave together stories of volatile turn-of-the century New York from three different perspectives: African Americans in Harlem, immigrants from Eastern Europe, and upper-class suburban whites. Together, these characters confront and explore what it means to live and fight for fairness and social justice in America.
