2013-14 Performance Schedule
A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare
October 3, 4, 5 • 8:00 p.m.
October 6 • 2:00 p.m.
On the summer night before a wedding, four pairs of lovers fight, woo and struggle through an evening where nothing is as it seems. Ruled over by a gaggle of fairies, young and old lovers alike are turned head-over-heels in this raucous comedy. Add to this a group of noble but talentless actors, an ass’s head, a magic potion, a lion, a wall and a moon and one of Shakespeare’s most accessible and hilarious comedies comes to life.
A Winnie-the-Pooh Christmas Tail by James W. Rodgers
December 6, 7 • 7:30 p.m.
December 7, 8 • 2:00 p.m.
On Christmas Eve very long ago Eeyore, the old gray donkey, was absolutely miserable. It seems that he lost his tail and Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet must gather their friends and organize a search to find it. Its theme of caring, sharing and the importance of friends, makes this an enchanting musical suitable for everyone. Produced by Alpha Psi Omega Theatre Honorary. All tickets are $5.
Working - The Musical
January 30, 31; Feb. 1 • 8:00 p.m.
February 2 • 2:00 p.m.
Working is a musical with a book by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso, music by Schwartz, Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mary Rodgers and James Taylor, and lyrics by Schwartz, Carnelia, Grant, Miranda, Taylor and Susan Birkenhead. Working is based on the Studs Terkel book Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do, a collection of interviews with various working people. These vignettes are brought to life in an unforgettable kaleidoscope of musical styles.
March 6, 7, 8 • 8:00 p.m.
March 9 • 2:00 p.m.
Student directed one-acts.
May 1, 2, 3 • 8:00 p.m.

Fuddy Meers by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire tells the story of Claire, whose rare form of amnesia erases her memory whenever she goes to sleep. This morning, like all mornings, she wakes up a blank slate. We see her, then, travel through one harrowing and hilarious turn after another on this roller coaster ride through the day of an amnesiac trying to decipher her fractured life while surrounded by a curio-cabinet of alarmingly bizarre characters. Mature language and situations.
