Shots are fired in a school house, and the world seems to stop. A stunned community — teachers, parents, friends, families of the victims and the perpetrators — must find a way to keep living their lives. This lyrical and potent drama explores the aftermath of a school shooting in an Amish community, and the path of forgiveness and compassion forged in its wake. This play was inspired by the tragic 2006 shooting at an Amish school in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Billy Elliot: The Musical premiered in London in 2005 and opened on Broadway in 2008, where it ran through 2012. Set in a northern English mining town during the 1984 miners' strike, the show tells the story of a young boy's struggle against the odds to make his dream come true. Follow Billy's journey as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class where he discovers a passion for dance that inspires his family and community and changes his life forever.
This production is a regional premiere of the show featuring West Potomac High School student Natalie Edwards, who was a cast member of the Billy Elliot national tour.
Arthur Miller's The Crucible, a classic of American theater, is a parable — and a warning — for all time. The story is set in a 17th-century Massachusetts town, where rigid Puritan ethics as well as hypocrisy, ignorance, and fear fuel false accusations of witchcraft and lead to chilling consequences.
Miller wrote The Crucible in the era of Senator Joseph McCarthy's anticommunist Red Scare of the 1950s. He intended the play to hold a mirror to the deliberate victimization and ruining of lives he saw happening around him. His concerns resound at a high decibel today. This production's visual layers and surprises add new context to an enduring dramatic masterpiece.
Provocative director Liesl Tommy brings Broadway savvy, storytelling flair and a revolutionary sensibility to "The Scottish Play," Shakespeare's exploration of murderous ambition, fiendish equivocation and a love of terrifying intimacy. In a world beset by civil war and invasion, Macbeth and his artful lady begin a series of murders, plunging us into the darkest night of the soul. Storms rage, fires burn and night blankets the earth in this tale of sound and fury, accompanied by Shakespeare's richest poetry.
Carl Maria von Weber's stunning music for Oberon brings you a true midsummer night's dream, beginning with the famous overture. Shakespeare's gods are a-quarreling, and true love must be conjured by a host of fairies, kings, elves, medieval knights and the mischievous Puck. Writer and director Nick Olcott unveils a new English adaptation of this classic opera, conducted by music director Stanley Thurston.
Lorraine Hansberry's groundbreaking masterpiece follows the Younger family, who yearn for a better life far from the cramped confines of their Chicago tenement. Hope arrives in the form of an unexpected financial windfall, but relationships are strained when family members realize they have different definitions of the American dream. Whose dreams will be realized and whose deferred? A Raisin in the Sun paints the African-American experience in brilliant and powerful strokes. This portrait of life remains as vibrant and vital today as it was at the play's premiere in 1959.
Love and lust are the ultimate Hallmark emotions, right? According to Bento Bonchev, they're saccharine marketing gimmicks designed to sell flowers and candy to those gullible enough to believe. But Bento's world is turned upside down when an astounding discovery forces him to rethink his dogma. Set in the not-so-distant future where love is thought to be a myth, this Russian absurdist satire offers a truly novel take on an age-old question of the heart.
In a musical drama set at the 1927 Charles County Maryland Fair Grounds, playwright Steven A. Butler Jr. tells the story of how his great-great grandparents, Ollie Tyson and Ruby Dyson, fell in love, settled, and raised a family in the small town of La Plata, Maryland.
Interwoven with the intense drama is original music that will have audience members on the edge of their seats as circus performers navigate the struggles that African-American performers had to deal with in order to survive an art they loved.
