Wait Until Dark

Wait Until Dark

An Unforgettable Psychological Thriller

A 1960s Greenwich Village apartment is the scene for a deadly game of cat and mouse when a group of con-men manipulate and terrorize an unsuspecting blind woman to reclaim a mysterious doll. When the doll can’t be found, the situation spirals out of control. With murder afoot and suspense building, the woman deftly decides to “wait until dark,” in an attempt to outwit her assailants. The thrills begin when the lights go out. Wait Until Dark’s chilling conclusion is proof positive that what you can’t see can hurt you.

By Frederick Knott
Directed by Joseph Hanreddy

Hamlet

Hamlet

The World's Most Famous Tragedy

When his suspiciously widowed mother swiftly marries his uncle, amidst demands for revenge from his murdered father’s ghost, the young prince Hamlet resolves that something is indeed “rotten in the state of Denmark.” Forced by circumstance into a world turned upside down by betrayal, distrust and madness, Hamlet spirals through a torrent of erratic emotion and bizarre behavior in a relentless pursuit of truth. Torn between duty and doubt, he wrestles tenaciously with the profound question “to be or not to be,” until fate exacts its final answer.

Generous support for this production was provided by John and Barbara Schubert.

Our production of HAMLET is part of Shakespeare in American Communities, a national program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Charles Fee

Always Amazing!
Forever Plaid

Forever Plaid

A Pitch-Perfect Jukebox Musical

On one stormy night in the 1960s, four eager singers known as The Plaids met their untimely ends in a cherry red, 1954 Mercury on the way to their first big gig. In 2017, this quartet of comic crooners gets one last chance to return from the afterlife to do the show they never got to perform. The Plaids deliver delightfully with playful patter and angelic voices in an unforgettable show that will have audiences rolling in the aisles when they’re not humming along to the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s.

Written and originally directed and choreographed by Stuart Ross
Musical continuity supervision and arrangements by James Raitt / Originally produced by Gene Wolsk
Directed by Victoria Bussert
