MAY 13 – 30 | Drama
Presented by Sandbox Theatre; Created by the Ensemble
Sandbox Theatre brings rich, visual storytelling to an all new ensemble-created exploration of Karel Čapek’s 1936 sociopolitical sci-fi tale of corruption, selfishness and absurdism. Told with Sandbox’s signature stylized design, movement and language, War With the Newts promises a sprawling, sharp-witted commentary on profit-first economies, the dangers of pride and nationalism, and a stern warning of our self-destructive nature.
JUNE 10 – 28 | Comedy | Presented by Theatre Pro Rata
By Tony Kushner; Directed by Carin Bratlie
After his son runs off to find his fortune, Pridamant seeks the aid of an eccentric illusionist; a sorcerer with the ability to conjure images and dreams. Scenes from the son’s life marvelously appear before them, each an exotic and perplexing situation, each more inexplicable than the last, with varying names, shifting places, and dizzying rivalries. Adapted by Tony Kushner from Pierre Corneille’s classic comedy, The Illusion reveals the boy’s fate only at the very end, for better or for worse, and that it’s not quite what his father was led to believe.

JULY 9 – 26 | Comedy | Presented by Girl Friday Productions
By Thornton Wilder; Directed by Craig Johnson
When wealthy merchant Horace Vandergelder engages the services of legendary matchmaker Dolly Levi, he gets much more than he bargained for. Under Dolly’s clever guidance, a swirl of innocent clerks, spirited millineresses, snooty waiters and other eccentric characters become delightfully entangled in 19th century New York. Thornton Wilder’s hilarious farce about love, money and adventure features the signature humanity, wit and relevance of one of America’s greatest playwrights. This joyous romp celebrates the spirit of generosity and living life to the fullest.
