When Daisy Werthan, a widowed 72-year-old Jewish woman living in midcentury Atlanta, is deemed too old to drive, her son, Boolie, hires Hoke Coleburn, a thoughtful African American man, to serve as her chauffeur. What begins as a troubled and hostile pairing blossoms over the next twenty-five years as the two, despite their mutual differences, grow ever closer to, and more dependent on, each other, coming to realize that they have more in common than they ever believed possible – and that times and circumstances would ever allow them to publicly admit.

By William Gibson
Co-directed by Larisa Netterlund and Donna Manis.
The Miracle Worker tells the true story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind, deaf, and mute Helen Keller, dramatizing the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence as she struggles to reach into Helen’s isolation and bring her into contact with the outside world.
“Interesting, absorbing and moving.” – The New York Post

Harvey is a six-foot-tall rabbit invisible to everyone except Elwood P. Dowd, much to the exasperation of his social-climbing sister, Veta. In order to save the family’s reputation, Veta takes Elwood to the local sanatorium. But when the doctors mistakenly commit his anxiety-ridden sister, Elwood – and Harvey – slip out of the hospital, setting off a hilarious whirlwind of confusion and chaos as everyone in town tries to catch a man and his invisible rabbit.

Directed by Jim Kimbrough
Urinetown is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. In a city, much like our own, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The destitute citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that earns huge profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he’s had enough, and plans a revolution to lead his fellow citizens against the tyrannical regime! Spoofing musicals from West Side Story, Chicago, and Les Misérables, Annie, Evita and others, the show irreverently pays witty homage to the great American musical theatre tradition.
Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critic’s Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards
“‘Urinetown’ was a show that resisted easy description, both a homage to and an outlandish spoof of the Brechtian theater of outrage and provocation…A zesty and full-bodied original” – The New York Times
“For anarchic, first-rate comic relief, get thee to Urinetown.” – Time Out
“If you’re looking for a great night of theater, ‘urine’ luck!” – Scott Rochet

By the time the boat reaches its destination, Canon Pennefather has laid bare an audacious conspiracy and has made sure the criminals shall not go free.
Taste of Shakespeare – Measure for Measure
Measure for Measure is Shakespeare’s story of power, corruption, love, family, betrayal, and comedy. A Duke leaves his lieutenant in charge to “clean up the town”, but he turns out to be as bad as anyone else. The Duke, disguised, sees the corruption, and takes his steps to make things right.
