ON STAGE IN SEASON 15

October 4th - 20th, 2013
The Mystery of Irma Vep
by Charles Ludlam
Directed by Danny Miller

If you loved The 39 Steps you will adore The Mystery of Irma Vep. A sympathetic werewolf, a vampire and an Egyptian princess brought back to life all join in the fun of The Mystery of Irma Vep, a hilarious parody of Victorian melodrama, gothic horror stories and Hitchcock-style suspense -- with all of the characters portrayed by just two actors. The campy, creepy fun starts on a dark and stormy night as the newly wed Lady Enid arrives at the eerie estate of her new husband. Strange things begin to happen as she investigates the mystery of Irma Vep, whose portrait looms dramatically over the fireplace.

November 8th - 24th, 2013
Unfound Fossils
by Christopher Bailey
Directed by david alan morrison

October 11th of 2009 marked the 40th anniversary of a still unsolved San Francisco shooting death, which put the exclamation point on the tumultuous summer of 1969. In the span of mere months Americans had witnessed Woodstock, Stonewall, the moon landing, and the Manson murders. On that foggy October night two men lounge in the bedroom of a Presidio Heights mansion, not far from a crime scene – a homicide. As police search the nearby Presidio, one of these men will come to realize the other is a killer.

Picasso at the Lapin Agile
Directed by Dan Posluns
Written by comedy legend Steve Martin, Picasso at the Lapin Agile imagines a meeting between two of history's greatest minds, Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso, in a Paris cafe in 1904. The provocative, absurd comedy pits art and science against commercialism in a debate on the nature of genius that's both thought-provoking and funny. The play premiered in 1994 to rave reviews, and has since become a staple of modern American theater.

February 21st – March 9th, 2014
A Little Night Music
Book by Hugh Wheeler
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Directed/Choreographed by Chris Nardine
Music Direction by Paul Linnes

The romantically beautiful A Little Night Music deals with middle aged lawyer Fredrik Egerman’s search for love. His teenage trophy wife, Anne refuses to have sex with him and, as a result, Fredrik’s eyes begin to wander as he searches for meaning and fulfillment elsewhere. Sophisticated, literate and stylish, A Little Night Music is also disarmingly warm, funny, charming and very human exploring the complexities of love and heartache as the summer night "smiles on the young, the fools and the old."

March 28th – April 13th, 2014
Kiss of the Spider Woman
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Book by Terrence McNally
Directed by Billie Wildrick
Music Direction by Brandon Peck
Choreographed by Matthew Lawrence

The story of two cell mates in a Latin American prison -- Valentin, a Marxist revolutionary, and Molina, a gay window dresser. As the friendship between the two men deepens, Molina escapes to a fantasy world of the movies he loved as a child, conjuring a beautiful and beguiling screen enchantress named Aurora to pass the time. The lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur -- and the danger mounts -- in this mesmerizing classic from the songwriting team that created Chicago and Cabaret and the four-time Tony Award-winning author of Love! Valor! Compassion!

May 9th – 25th, 2014
Keely and Du
by Jane Martin
Directed by Rick Wright

Keely, a pregnant rape victim planning an abortion, awakes in a locked room with no memory of how she got there. She learns from her elderly companion, Du, that she has been kidnapped by a pro-life group intent on forcing Keely to have her baby. What unveils is a beautiful character piece about the ongoing abortion dispute in America.

June 6th – 22nd, 2014
La Cage aux Folles
Music and Lyrics Jerry Herman
Book Harvey Fierstein
Directed by Eric Polani Jensen
Choreographed by Kate Kingery
Music Director: Paul Linnes

After twenty years of un-wedded bliss Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better-or-worse get a bit of both when Georges' son (fathered during a one-night fling) announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, right-wing politician. Further complicating the situation is the 'family business': Albin and Georges run a drag nightclub in St. Tropez, where Albin is the ‘star’ performer 'Zaza'. Georges reluctantly agrees to masquerade as ‘normal’ when he meets the family of the bride-to-be. But Albin has other plans, with hilarious results.
