Waiting for Lefty
Tuesday, February 28 at 10 a.m.
By Clifford Odets
Nafe Katter Theatre

Clifford Odets’ passionate and politically-charged play Waiting for Lefty is a timeless piece of classic American theatre that you won’t readily forget. In 1930’s New York City the Great Depression takes full force and working families are put out on the streets to starve. As people fight for their lives, a union of cab drivers decide ‘no more’ and wait for their leader, Lefty Castello, to choose if they will strike or not. The demand for social change drives this classic Group Theatre production into modern times leaving us to answer: “what are we waiting for?”


Eurydice
Tuesday, March 28 at 10 a.m.
By Sarah Ruhl
Studio Theatre

In Eurydice, a fresh look at one of the greatest love stories of all time, playwright Sarah Ruhl re-imagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine. Eurydice and her musician-lover, Orpheus, are a happy modern couple. On their wedding day, Eurydice is enticed by a letter from her deceased father, only to find herself reunited with him in the underworld. As Orpheus tries to rescue her, Eurydice must re-learn human language in order to remember all she left behind and, ultimately, choose between two worlds in this whimsical and breathtaking story of the power and fragility of love.

Based on the award-winning DreamWorks animated film, Shrek: The Musical is this season’s must-see musical for the entire family!

Add the diminutive Lord Farquaad, a gang of homeless fairytale misfits, and a biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got the biggest, brightest all-singing, all-dancing musical extravaganza around! Shrek: The Musical received eight 2009 Tony Award nominations including Best Musical. Shrek is a joyous monster hit!
