  • We follow that with the frolicsome Dames at Sea, a rarely-produced and wonderful musical love story about big breaks and big dreams.
  • For Christmas, we’re offering the Pennsylvania premiere of Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley, a delicious holiday sequel to Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice.
  • In the spring semester, we’ll produce the haunting Chekhov masterpiece The Cherry Orchard.
  • In March, our senior theatre majors will present the delightful and timely The Princess King.
  • Our season finale will explore the search for the extraordinary in the Broadway blockbuster Pippin — another Act 1 premiere.
