Fall 2023

Ophelia (Run Amok)

Conceived and directed by Kenny Prestininzi

Tansill Theater, Hillyer Hall
Friday, October 6, 7:30pm
Saturday, October 7, 2:00pm & 7:30pm
Sunday, October 8, 2:00pm

In the spirit of Charles Ludlum’s Ridiculous Theater, an ensemble of women, all named Ophelia, stage a radical remix of William Shakespeare’s shitshow of a tragedy, Hamlet, Prince of Denmark. By running amok, they decenter the flailing solipsistic prince from his own no-win all-lose narrative and use Shakespeare’s word-play and theatrical devices to reimagine a new and surprising active role for Ophelia in the rotten state of Denmark.

Three Sisters

by Anton Chekhov
A new version by Sarah Ruhl
Based on a literal translation by Elise Thoron with Natasha Paramonova and Kristin Johnsen-Neshati
Directed by David Jaffe
Assistant Director: Jo Duckett ’25

Tansill Theater, Hillyer Hall
Friday, November 17, 7:30pm
Saturday, November 18, 2:00 & 7:30pm
Sunday, November 19 2:00pm

Director David Jaffe and company develop a new approach to Chekhov’s quintessential Russian story of three sisters who seek a way out of a provincial Russian town and yearn for the city of their childhood, Moscow. Of her version, Sarah Ruhl writes of her intention to focus on the sisters’ desire to defy their fate, rather than complain about it. This production seeks to activate Chekhov’s world in ways that speak to all of us who struggle with our dreams, our loves, and our families.

Spring 2024


Music and lyrics by Mark Hollman
Book and lyrics by Greg Kotis
Directed by Tess Cruz ’16

Athey Center at Palmer Auditorium
Friday, March 1, 7:30pm
Saturday, March 2, 7:30pm
Sunday, March 3, 2:00pm

Greed, love and revolution become monopolized in this year’s musical! Winner of three Tony Awards, Urinetown satirizes capitalism, the legal system, populism, public toilets and “do-good” musical theater itself. Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is wildly irreverent and no one is safe from its scrutiny and sharp wit.
Urinetown was produced on Broadway in September, 2001 by the Araca Group and Dodger Theatricals in association with TheaterDreams, Inc., and Lauren Mitchell.
