DANCING AT LUGHNASA
By Brian Friel

This extraordinary play tells the story of five unmarried sisters eking out their lives in a small village in Ireland in 1936. Their spare existence is interrupted by brief, colorful bursts of music from the radio, their only link to the romance and hope of the world at large. When two unexpected visitors arrive, the past and present collide and begin to destroy the foundation of the family forever. Winner of the 1992 Tony Award, this haunting play is Friel's tribute to the spirit and valor of the past. Suggested for ages 10 and up.

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
By William Shakespeare

One of the most popular and charming of Shakespeare’s comedies, Much Ado About Nothing features the original “battle of the sexes” couple: Benedick, an arrogant and confirmed bachelor, and Beatrice, his favorite sparring partner. While Beatrice and Benedick hide their infatuation beneath witty barbs, young love blossoms as Hero and Claudio race to the altar. When the wicked Don John conspires to break up the wedding, will false accusations and misunderstandings prevent the young couple’s happy ending? Witty wordplay, passionate poetry and clever plot twists make this the perfect romantic evening. Suggested for ages 10 and up.

YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN
Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
Book by Mel Brooks & Thomas Meehan
April 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30 @ 7:30 pm, May 1 @ 2:00 pm

It’s alive! Frederick Frankenstein, grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, inherits his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick and a leggy lab assistant, Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather's. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds. Every bit as relevant to audience members who will remember the original film as it will be to newcomers, Young Frankenstein has all the panache of the screen sensation with a little extra theatrical flair added. Suggested for ages 12 and up.
