In 1869, ten daring volunteers set out to explore the Colorado River and Grand Canyon for the very first time. (Kind of.) They rode rapids, scaled canyons, tamed wildlife, and left their mark on virgin territory, in a manner of speaking. Led by a one-armed captain, these Men on Boats battled nature, history, and their own cluelessness on this historic voyage. Join us on a hilarious adventure as a cast of ten fearless women recreate this daring expedition, offering gentle satire and timely perspective on what happens when you let men explore the world.

Evocative, discerning, and unswervingly sincere, The Great God Pan is a complex study of the ways in which a tragic event affects our lives and the lives of those around us. The play centers on an encounter between two childhood friends who have not seen each other for over 25 years. When one reveals a hidden secret from the past, the well-ordered world of the other begins to unravel and his life will never be the same again.
The Great God Pan explores the questions of what is lost and what is won when we are exposed to potentially life-changing truths?

Of all the plays written by William Shakespeare perhaps none is as accessible and funny as A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM. It is the the eve of Duke Theseus’ wedding day and a group of less-than-talented actors are preparing a play for the big event. Two young couples run off into a dark forest trying to solve their relationship problems where they encounter Puck, a fairy who loves to create chaos. Throw in the Queen of the Fairies falling in love with a donkey and a play-within-a-play guaranteed to bring the house down and you have…. A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM.
Tickets will be available on March 25, 2019.
