    Fall Quarter 2016


    by Thornton Wilder 
    Directed by Sara Goff

    November 11, 12, 18, 19 at 7:30pm

    An irrefutable classic of the American theatre. A work of humanity and warmth. Our Town transports us to Grover's Corners, a place of secret wishes and disappointments; loves and losses, where the people we encounter are shockingly like the ones in our own lives. Meet Emily and George. They've grown up together in their small New England town, falling in love in a surprisingly complicated way. Their lives provide the lens through which the story is told, a story that focuses on a village but encompasses the eternal, finding the world in a grain of sand.

    Winter Quarter 2017

    AVENUE Q (Musical) 

    Directed by Jeff Sanders 
    Musical Direction by Carolyn Jess

    (Avenue Q Auditions are scheduled for November 28, 2016 at 7:00pm/EWU Theatre Main Stage)

    Performance Dates:

    Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart. This laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton, who moves into a shappy New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life. Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfuly catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere. Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children's show: a place where puppets are friends, monsters are good and life lessons are learned. 


    Spring Quarter 2017


    by Alan Ayckbourn
    Directed by Guest Director, Josh Stamoolis

    May 12, 13 and 19, 20 at 7:30pm

    May 18 at 5pm

    (Audition Dates TBA)

     Trevor and Susannah, whose marriage is on the rocks, inflict their miseries on their nearest and dearest: three couples whose own relationships are tenuous at best. Taking place sequentially in the three beleaguered couples' bedrooms during one endless Saturday night of co-dependence and dysfunction, beds, tempers and domestic order are ruffled, leading all the players to a hilariously touching epiphany.
