Sense and Sensibility
Tuesday, March 1 at 10 a.m.
Adapted by Joseph Hanreddy and J.R. Sullivan
Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre

Full of passion, wit, and soaring emotions, this new adaptation of Jane Austen’s first published novel is co-written by the same authors as our extraordinarily popular Pride & Prejudice. Following their father’s untimely death, the penniless Dashwood sisters pursue life and love in their own distinctive ways. Elinor is smart and down-to-earth. Marianne is wildly romantic. They each attract suitors whose startling secrets obstruct the path to happily ever after.  Beautifully produced with the costumes and settings of the period, this promises to be a special treat for all of the Austen lovers and Austen fans in the making.

We celebrate 50 Years of Puppetry at the University of Connecticut with the premiere of three Puppet based works in one innovative evening.

For fifty years, UConn’s Puppetry program has defined the cutting edge of new theatre; this dynamic evening will be no exception. You’ll see the future of groundbreaking theatre right now!


Monty Python’s Spamalot
Tuesday, April 26 at 10 a.m.
Music by John Deprez, Eric Idle and Innes
Lyrics by Eric Idle
Book by Idle
Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre

Monty Python’s Spamalot, the musical comedy sensation lovingly ripped off from the film classic Monty Python and The Holy Grail, arrives this spring to spread laughter and cheer throughout the kingdom. As gleefully silly yet wickedly smart as Monty Python, the beloved British comedy troupe that inspired it, Spamalot tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail.  You’ll enjoy some mostly handsome Knights, a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people, before the familiar sound of clomping coconut shells brings down the curtain on the season’s goofiest if satirically dead-on comic delights. Winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical, Toronto Star critic Richard Ouzounian wrote, ““You could put a happy-meter in the theatre and watch it go off the charts. You’ll laugh a lot!”
