Synopsis: One of Shakespeare's most celebrated comedies, Twelfth Night features Viola's cross-dressing misadventures as she tries to figure out love and survival in a world of lovesick men. Hilarious reversals and bittersweet misunderstandings ensue, as Viola introduces her ambiguous identity to the misfit oddballs of Illyria – and steals more than one heart in the process. Join us for an evening of buoyant wordplay, raucous slapstick and some of the wittiest love scenes in all of Shakespeare.

Synopsis: The four March sisters gather in their attic in the midst of a cold winter just before Christmas, 1863, in Concord, Mass. Meg longs to be invited to a ball, Amy longs for a Christmas tree and Beth longs for her father to come home from the war. Meanwhile, Jo is bursting with the creative energy of a writer on the verge of unleashing her imagination. The four join together to rehearse Jo’s new operatic adventure and the sisters’ worries are allayed for the moment. Thus begins the adventures of the March sisters as they face life’s trials together and learn that, despite what life throws at them, family bonds last forever. Bring the whole family to celebrate Louisa May Alcott’s great American classic with us this February.
Little Women is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
These Shining Lives
by Melanie Marnich
Directed by Rhett Luedtke

April 19 at 2 p.m.
Synopsis: Melanie Marnich’s poetic tale of the women who worked for Radium Dial Company in Ottawa, Ill., in the 1920s and ’30s is deeply moving, wistful and beautifully tragic. Inspired by actual people and real events, These Shining Lives chronicles the lives of four women who refuse to allow a company more concerned with profit than safety to silence their voices. Join us as we remember our collective past, reflect on the present and dream of a better future.
