Godspell (Performances 9/9-10/2; Auditions 6/27-29)
Music & Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Book by John Michael Tebelak
A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide
variety of games, storytelling techniques, and hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic
blend of songs ranging in style from pop to vaudeville is employed as the story of
Jesus's life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and
the Crucifixion, Jesus's messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to
Plaza Suite (Performances 11/4-27; Auditions 9/12-14)
by Neil Simon
Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples occupying a suite at the Plaza. A
suburban couple take the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to
be the one in which they honeymooned 23 years before and is it their anniversary?
Next, after three marriages, a Hollywood producer is looking for fresh fields. He calls
a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. She
has idolized him from afar and is now more than the match he bargained for. Finally,
a mother and father fight about the best way to get their daughter out of the
bathroom and down to where her wedding guests await her.
The Farnsworth Invention (Performances 1/13-2/5; Auditions 11/7-9)
by Aaron Sorkin
It's 1929. Two ambitious visionaries race against each other to invent a device
called "television." Separated by two thousand miles, each knows that if he stops
working, even for a moment, the other will gain the edge. Who will unlock the key to
the greatest innovation of the 20th century: the ruthless media mogul, or the self-
taught Idaho farm boy?

Noises Off (Performances 3/10-4/2; Auditions 1/16-18)
by Michael Frayn
Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a
cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing's On. Doors slamming, on
and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and
classically comic play.
