Assassins

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by John Weidman
based on an idea by Charles Gilbert, Jr

Directed by Kristin Hughes
Music Direction by Bethany Aiken
Vocal Direction by Stephen Peters

Assassins pulls nine individuals from across history who assassinated – or who attempted to assassinate – American presidents into a series of encounters and brilliant songs that explore what inspires their actions. Using these encounters (some farcical, some dark), this musical examines the uniquely and horrifyingly American violence that leads outsiders to seek redress by raising arms against the leader of their country.

Performance Dates:
May 16, 17, 23, 24, 29, 30, & 31, 2014, at 8pm and May 25 at 2pm.

Rabbit Hole

by David Lindsay-Abaire

directed by Michelle Aguillon

Becca and Howie Corbett have everything any couple would want. They have a loving family and home, until their only son, Danny, just 4 years old, is killed in a car accident. Becca and Howie deal with this tragedy differently, forcing them to grieve very differently: Becca in her own solitary way, and Howie yearning to grieve alongside his wife. Rabbit Hole charts their journey of anger, resentment, survival and ultimately, love and forgiveness. Rabbit Hole was the recipient of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and is written by Boston’s own David Lindsay-Abaire.

“The best production of it I’ve seen yet … Aguillon’s cast is extraordinary, deftly mining the humor in the piece without sacrificing the pathos.” — Boston Arts Review

March 14, 15, 21, 22, 27, 28, & 29, 2014, at 8pm and March 23 at 2pm.

Next Fall

by Geoffrey Nauffts

directed by Russell Greene

Next Fall is a funny and heartbreaking look at love, life, religion, and
the far-reaching impact of the choices we make. The play goes
beyond a typical love story to describe Adam and Luke and their
unlikely, but real relationship and what happens after one of them is
involved in a tragic accident. It is a relevant, well-written, thought-
provoking, and utterly contemporary comedy/drama.

Performance Dates:
January 17, 18, 24, 25, 30, 31, & February 1, 2014, at 8pm and January 26 at 2pm.

Tickets: $18 ($15 for Students/Seniors)
