Fall Semester 2019

Antigone

by Sophokles
translated by Anne Carson
directed by Dave Peterson

What do you do when the law is wrong? Sophokles' tragedy pits Antigone against her uncle and king, Creon. The young woman insists on burying her brother's body to honor him and the gods, but Creon insists her brother is a traitor and deserves to be left uncovered and dishonored. Anne Carson's incisive new translation clearly renders these striking characters while confronting audiences with questions of justice, religion, family, and what it means to be a citizen.

The Pickle Patch Bathtub

A Theatre for Young Audiences Production!

written 
and directed by Amy Ressler
based on a story by Frances Kennedy

It's 1925 and Donna Delle Philp's legs have grown too long for the family's old washtub. But with her parents busy making ends meet on the farm, it's up to Donna Delle to find a solution. After months of toil and some help from her brother and sisters, she earns enough money to buy the family a real bathtub! There is plenty to sing about as this musical version of a warm, true story illustrates the value of a dollar and what can be accomplished by working together toward a goal.
