The Two Gentlemen of Verona by William Shakespeare

February 13 and 20 at 3 p.m.

Directed by Paul Mullins

When two young men fall in love with the same woman, their lifelong friendship hangs in the balance. The Two Gentlemen of Verona might well be Shakespeare’s earliest work and provides a template for so many of the themes that he explored throughout his artistic life: parents and children, the confusion of love, fidelity, loyalty. In Two Gents, idiosyncratic servants, a runaway woman disguised as a man, domineering fathers, outlaws and a dog in sore need of obedience training, collide in this rollicking comedy of love run amuck.

Metamorphoses by Mary Zimmerman

March 16, 17, 18, 19, 23, 24, 25, 26 at 7:30 p.m.

March 19 and 26 at 3 p.m.

Directed by Ron Wilson

Adapted, inspired and propelled by Ovid’s Metamorphosis, Mary Zimmerman, re-interprets ancient myths and stories for a modern audience. Using movement, song and vivid story-telling, Metamorphoses explores love, loss, power and family in a moving and profound way. Using both dramatic and comedic scenarios, Mary Zimmerman’s Metamorphoses, has claimed a unique place in contemporary drama, as we use the past to illuminate the present.
