Oscar Wilde’s classic is a delight from the first cucumber sandwich on, when the double lives of Jack and Algernon catch up with them in ever escalating, hilarious ways as they pursue romance, swap names, and get into mischief. This timeless play is considered Wilde’s masterpiece and remains, 115 years after its London debut, one of the funniest plays of all time.

The Broadway musical sensation by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine finally arrives at
the Little Theatre of Norfolk! In this fractured fairy tale a baker and his wife embark upon a quest where they cross paths with Cinderella, Little Red, Jack, Rapunzel, philandering princes, a hungry wolf, and a transforming witch. Act 1 gives the characters their happy endings but when the giant’s wife returns for revenge in Act 2 it becomes apparent that there is really no such thing as “happily ever after.” (Auditions: March 7, 8, 9)
