"CURSE OF THE STARVING CLASS"
By Sam Shepard
Winner of the 1976-77 Obie Award for best new American play, this is a major work by one of theatre's most respected and celebrated writers, Sam Shepard. Curse of the Starving Class is a darkly comic exploration of the American family psyche in the style of absurdism. The play focuses on the dysfunctional Tate clan - the drunken dreamer of a father, burned-out mother, rebellious teenage daughter, and idealistic son - as they struggle for control of the rundown family farm in a futile search for freedom, security, and ultimately meaning in their lives.

By Steven Sater, Composer Duncan Sheik
Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Spring Awakening is a rock musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind's 1891 expressionist play about the trials and tribulations - as well as the exhilaration - of the teen years. It features music by Duncan Sheik and a book and lyrics by Steven Sater. Spring Awakening celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget.
Show Dates: February 28, March 1,7,8,13,14, and 15 - 2014
Show Times - All shows are at 7:30pm, with an additional matinee showing on March 8 at 2:00pm.
"DOG SEES GOD Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead"
By Bert V. Royal
An "unauthorized parody," the play imagines characters from the popular comic strip Peanuts as teenagers. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, sexual relations and identity are among the issues covered in this drama. Playwright Bert V. Royals builds on the foundation of Charles Schulz's iconic comic strip, creating a parody that's also a stand-alone play apt to resonate even with those who belong to that small population segment unfamiliar with Peanuts.
Show Dates: May 2,3,9,10,15,16 and 17 - 2014
Show Times - All shows are at 7:30pm, with an additional matinee showing on May 10 at 2:00pm.
