Music by Harvey Schmidt
The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, two fathers and a wall. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl fall in love, grow apart, and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo's words that "without a hurt, the heart is hollow".

Directed by Steven Hunt
Mischievous servants pulling practical jokes, lovelorn ladies and salacious suitor, music, music and more music - and one of Shakespeare's most famous "corrupter of words" abound in the romantic comedy, Twelfth Night, or What You Will. Laugh along as Viola pines for the melancholy Duke Orsino who has eyes for no one but the Lady Olivia, who in turn is besotted with his messenger boy "Cesario" - poor Viola in disguise! Be sure and join us for this giddy romp filled with mistaken identity and unrequited love.
February 20 - March 8, 2015
By Tom Stoppard
Take a rollicking ride through Hamlet with two of the play's minor characters. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern love outrageous wordplay and relish irreverent philosophy. Tom Stoppard gives a hilarious view of royal politics seen through the eyes of this loveable pair of misfits--who become the real victims of the murderous intrigues. This play is an early masterpiece of the man who would become one of the most influential playwrights of contemporary theatre. Clive Barnes of The New York Times described this play as "very funny, very brilliant, very chilling."
April 10 - 26, 2015
By John Heimbuch
The premiere of Henry V is just concluding when an angry Will Kemp, former member of Shakespeare's company, shows up unexpectedly at the back door of the Globe Theatre to give the Bard an earful for killing off Falstaff, the character that Kemp made famous. Shortly thereafter the Queen's lawyer, Francis Bacon, stops by to propose Shakespeare produce a play Bacon has written called Falstaff in Love about some - merry wives. He is willing to pay Shakespeare an incredible sum if Shakespeare will only produce it as his own. Soon thereafter a company member going into London for supplies is bitten by some "deranged individual" just outside the theatre. Before the evening is over Queen Elizabeth herself will show up at the Globe, as well as more deranged individuals, all pounding on the door! Why? Has the whole town gone mad! Join us for this comedy in five bites! Shakespeare, zombies, sword fights, and some clues as to how some of Shakespeare's greatest plays came to be.
