Dust off your dictionary as six awkward adolescents face off in the battle of their lives. Let the spelling (and the singing) begin! The competition is intense. The words are outrageous. The songs are hilarious. These six quirky youngsters tell tales from their home lives while spelling their hearts out hoping to never hear the crushing "ding" of the bell that signals a mistake. Both tender and sarcastic, this joyful Tony Award-winning musical of overachievers' angst brings you inside a spelling championship you'll never forget.
Ken Ludwig's acclaimed adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 1902 classic mystery, The Hound of the Baskervilles, is full of intrigue and...huge laughs. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being murdered one by one, and the renowned sleuth Sherlock Holmes, along with his trusted sidekick, Dr. Watson, must work feverishly to crack the curse before it dooms the newest heir. Five talented actors playing 40 quirky characters follow leads, unravel clues, hit dead-ends, and zigzag with the story until the shockingly funny conclusion.
Created and performed by Happenstance Theater
Six clowns walk the precipice at the end of the world, lighting up the darkness along the way like firecrackers. BrouHaHa, an existential escapade that follows this troupe of eccentrics, was inspired by images of refugees, cinematic treasures like La Strada and The Seventh Seal, and the dark comedy of Samuel Beckett. BrouHaHa: a state of social agitation when a minor incident gets out of control. Typically, it is marked by controversy and fuss that can seem, afterwards, irrational.

What's the proper way to run your very own dictatorial regime? Where do you start and where do you go? Should you consider experimental techniques or go with the tried-and-true methods?

Either way, this "how-to" for the tradition of tyrannical despotism is for you. Told through biting satire and witty music by Ensemble member Christopher Shorr. No experience with repressive regimes necessary.

Brace yourself for comic chaos with Noises Off, the rip-roaring play within a play.

Can the cast members pull their act together on the stage even if they can't behind the scenes?
Three love stories...plus a murder mystery and nuclear espionage plot. A hilarious noir comedy about marriage and other explosive devices.
