Five Women Wearing the Same Dress

by Alan Ball

Sponsored by Blethen, Gage & Krause During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the women's spirit.

Galileo

by Bertolt Brecht

The time is the emergence of the age of reason when Galileo was teaching impressionable students the incredible account of how the earth moves around the sun, rather than the other way around. His heretical announcement is brought to the attention of the church and Galileo is summoned to the Vatican. His friends abandon him and his appeal to the Pope is intercepted by the Grand Inquisitor.

Urinetown: The Musical. In an attempt to regulate water consumption, the government has outlawed the use of private toilets. Urine Good Company, a private corporation run by the corrupt and iron-fisted Caldwell B. Cladwell, is in charge. Bobby Strong leads a revolution. Caught in the middle is hiss daughter, Hope, who is in love with Bobby. This is not your typical musical comedy--it is much darker and funnier!

Beauty and the Beast

by the Royal Shakespeare Co.

Sponsored by Immanuel St. Joseph's-Mayo Health System Jean Louis, a wealthy merchant, his wife Helene and their children live a happy and prosperous life in Paris. When Beauty is five, Helene dies, the business collapses and their house burns down. Much to their distress, Jean Louis and the children must live in a run-down farm in the country. Jean Louis gets lost returning from Paris and finds himself in a magical place overseen by a mysterious Beast with whom he makes a bargain. This fantastic tale has been re-envisioned to recapture some of the resonance of the original (not the cartoon) story. It is a haunting play with music that is almost unbearably romantic.

The Comedy of Errors

by William Shakespeare

The Comedy of Errors relies heavily on mix-ups and witty dialogue. The characters include two sets of twins. Farcical mix-ups occur when all the twins converge in Ephesus. And the tale is told as only the master of all tales can tell it, William Shakespeare.
