By Michael Frayn
Luke Yankee, director
One of the most inspired farces ever written presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a comedy called Nothing On. Out-of-control egos, memory loss and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. Progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance, Noises Off is a comic triumph of slamming doors, falling trousers and flying sardines!
This play contains some mature language

Here is Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: ducktailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights” as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as Greased Lightnin, It’s Raining on Prom Night, Alone at the Drive-In Movie recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An 8-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals along with innumerable school and community productions place Grease among the world’s most popular musicals.
Campus Theatre $25 (Children 12 and under - $18)
GREASE is being funded, in part, from the Musical Theatre Fund established in 2005 through the generous donations from the Les Thomas Family and Hamilton M. Maddaford. We would like to acknowledge and thank the generous donors who attended previous musicals and contributed to the Musical Theatre Fund.

By Arthur Miller
John DeMita, director
Arthur Miller’s searing parable of intolerance, vengeance, moral courage and mass hysteria, The Crucible, is destined to resonate for centuries to come. Set during the Salem Witch Trials of the late 1600s and using the names of actual participants, The Crucible is universally seen as an allegory of the McCarthy era and the demand to “name names” during the anti-Communist witch hunts of the 1950s. But the moral of the story is far more universal. There are moments in the play that hit today’s audience with the force of a breaking news bulletin. Barely 50 years after it was written, Miller’s play has assumed the stature of a much older masterpiece. “Its wisdom seems ancient, its scope Shakespearean.”
Campus Theatre $15
As a courtesy to the performers and our audiences, children under 5 years of age will not be admitted to theatre series performances. Children 5 and older, however, must have a ticket and be able to sit quietly throughout the performance. Thank you for your support and understanding.
