Music & Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz,
Book by Roger O. Hirson

September 28 - October 7

With an infectiously unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden) and a timeless book by Roger O. Hirson, Pippin tells the fable of a young prince on a quest to find true happiness and fulfillment. Through Prince Pippin's encounters with fantastical characters that he meets along the way, we discover whether he will find his corner of the sky.


by William Shakespeare

November 9 - 18

History's most famous star crossed lovers play out their ill-fated tale by William Shakespeare set in the backdrop of Italy's Verona. Packed with epic sword fights and compelling soliloquies, Romeo & Juliet is sure to transport the audience back to the Globe during the English renaissance.


A New Play by Jorge Ignacio Cortiñas

February 22 - March 3

This enchanting new play, developed at New York's renowned Public Theatre and performed in Cuba, asks the question--is it more dangerous to follow our desires, or to bury them? Reiderico sneaks out of his house and spends his nights in the garden conspiring with a boy who lives at the bottom of a well, testing stormy waters between reality and the surreal.


Music by Arthur Sullivan,
Book and Lyrics by W.S. Gilbert

April 19 - 28

Prepare to set sail off the coast of Cornwall with the swashbuckling Pirates of Penzance! Frederic has earned his dues as the pirates' apprentice waiting to be promoted to full pirate-dom on his 21st birthday, but upon discovery that he is a leap year baby born on February 29th, it seems he may never get the chance. This roaring comedy, one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most famous works, gets a fresh interpretation on the Ring stage.
