October 2-4, October 9-11
Hot Mikado
Book and Lyrics Adapted by David H. Bell; Music Adapted and Arranged by Rob Bowman; Based on The Mikado by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan
Directed by Nina LeNoir, Music Direction by Bill Brown

In a land where outlandish laws sentence people to death for almost any indiscretion, jazz, and the blues, and gospel are spoken fluently. Hot Mikado weaves a tale of hilarious proportions and, despite the life or death stakes, characters still find time to tap their toes and do their fair share of scatting. Based on the classic Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, this musical stays faithful to the original in song and story, but sets everything in a 1940s jazz club setting, mixing the two into a wild and entertaining evening of theatre.

Anna in the Tropics by Nilo Cruz
Directed by Nick Avila

In a cigar factory outside of Tampa in the 1920s, a group of Cuban immigrant factory workers listen to a lector read them the classic Anna Karenina as they endlessly roll cigars. The combination of Tolstoy, the tropics and the American Dream prove a volatile mix that ignites the passions of a community and change lives forever. This powerful and poetic play won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

April 9-11, 16-18
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard
Directed by TBA

Acclaimed as a modern masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm's-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, who are Hamlet’s treacherous friends in Shakespeare's play. Tom Stoppard gives the stage to these two characters, but when they finally get a chance to take the leading roles, reality and illusion intermix, and our two heroes comically and tragically find their way to an inevitable end.
