Here's this season's schedule:
  • Mauritius: Oct. 4,5,6,11,12 and 13 at 7:30 p.m., Oct. 6 & 13 at 2 p.m. Crime...Passion...Stamp Collecting? That's right, stamp collecting. When two half-sisters, mourning the recent passing of their mother, inherit a spectacularly rare stamp collection, they are plunged into the seedy underworld of cloak and dagger philately. Mauritius is a suspenseful new comedy-drama where everyone involved seems willing to bully, connive, cheat, and, if all else fails, conduct a legitimate business transaction, to gain control of the rarest of prizes. Adult language.
  • The Grimmers: Oct 19 & 20 at 7:30 p.m., Oct. 20 at 2 p.m. Walking deep into myth -- into mystery -- you see a locked chest and a key. When you open the lid, revealed is the ultimate treasure: IMAGINATION! Come join our troupe of forest creatures as they bring to life Grimm's Fairy Tales through a creative mixture of puppetry and audience involvement that children of all ages are sure to enjoy.
  • My Three Angels: Nov. 29, 30 and Dec. 1,6,7 and 8 at 7:30 p.m.;Dec. 1 & 8 at 2 p.m. In French Guiana at the turn of the 20th century, three convicts on work release find themselves helping the Ducotel family with more than their roof maintenance. With an evil-minded cousin trying to take over the family business and a cold-blooded nephew set on jilting his fiance for an heiress, the family is in need of some divine intervention. The criminals with hearts of gold step in to help set matters right and in doing so, they redeem themselves as real-life angels.
  • Inside the Actor's Process -- Drama: Feb. 8 & 9 at 7:30 p.m.; Feb. 9 at 2 p.m. Actors live their characters' lives out in the open -- revealing to the audience the inner workings of the human mind and heart. Those things most private are turned into the most public. What is it like to serve as a conduit through which imaginary people are brought to life? In Inside the Actor's Process -- Drama, we invite you to experience the intriguing world of the actor. Through the performance of monologues and scenes from contemporary plays, you will see how actors develop characters both emotionally and physically.
