Got Brains?

Mayor Arnsen, Slash Murphy and the rest of the cerebral citizens of a sleepy Texas town are recovering from a traumatizing zombie apocalypse that has shaken them to the core. Members of a San Francisco theater collective interview the survivors to offer the "healing that can only come through theatre." So what really happened that deadly night? Listen to the tales of courage, conspiracy and carnage.

Zombie Town will start your Halloween season on the right fleshy, undead foot.

"Zombie Town is a hip, hilarious and irreverent experience that will keep you laughing."
-- The Times-Picayune

A hearty helping of nostalgia with a sprinkling of the supernatural.

Contemptible miser Ebenezer Scrooge is fulfilled by his wealthy, yet lonely existence, until he receives a message on Christmas Eve from the ghost of his deceased partner, Jacob Marley. Scrooge will face his past, present and future with three spirits. Will the apparitions and their prophecies transform Scrooge? Will he find that there is still compassion and love in his heart? On Christmas morning, humbug meets its maker.

Take a breath. Close your eyes. And leap. Dancers do it best, leaping into the unknown, telling stories, celebrating life. Above all, they’re fueled by the energy of the audience, so go ahead and cry, laugh, feel the rush of movement.

Genet’s 1947 drama centers on two maids, Claire and Solange, who engage in ritualistic, sadomasochistic “games” while their employer, known only as Madame, is away.  In this intimate three-person piece, with repetitive action and dialogue that ranges from ornate to crude, Genet delves into issues of class, power, sexuality, and gendered performance.

By Sarah Ruhl

Blood is thicker than water.

It is wedding day for Eurydice and her young musician, Orpheus, when Eurydice meets a mysterious man with a message from her father. Down the elevator she travels to meet him and unwittingly arrives in the underworld. Does she return to the world of the living with her beloved Orpheus, or does she look back at her father and remain in Hades forever?

This modern interpretation of the myth of Orpheus lets Eurydice take the wheel, tormented by love and torn between a future with her husband and the memories of her father.

"RHAPSODICALLY BEAUTIFUL. A weird and wonderful new play - an inexpressibly moving theatrical fable about love, loss and the pleasures and pains of memory." - The New York Times

Any dream will do.

Joseph is a dreamer. In fact, he can interpret dreams. He’s also his father’s favorite son. Filled with jealousy and fear that he will one day rule over them, Joseph’s brothers sell him into slavery in Egypt. Soon he’s tasked with interpreting the Pharaoh’s dreams and predicts an impending famine. He becomes a powerful man in Egypt and finds himself in a new position with his brothers. Will Joseph reunite with his father? Will he wear his coat of many colors once more?

Broadway dream team Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice bring to life this family-friendly musical parable, a timeless classic.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is presented through an exclusive arrangement with R & H Theatricals and The Really Useful Group Limited.
