Lysistrata posterWe will start off the season with the Iowa premiere of Lysistrata Jones by Douglas Carter Beane and Lewis Flinn.
Performance Dates: October 25-26 at 7:30 pm and October 27 at 1:00 pm.

This bawdy and irreverent musical is set on a college campus where the cheerleaders take advice from an ancient Greek play and won’t “give it up” to their basketball playing boyfriends until their team can break a thirty-year losing streak.

The second show is The Women of Lockerbie by Deborah Brevoort.Lockerbie poster
Performance Dates: November 22-23 at 7:30 pm and November 24 at 1:00 pm.
In conjunction with the 17th Annual High School Theatre Festival, November 25th.

A Greek tragedy set in modern times, The Women of Lockerbie is inspired by actual events. The play takes place on December 21, 1995, during a midnight vigil for the seven year anniversary of the terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. As the night deepens, the survivors of the bombing—American and Scottish alike—must face their own fears before communal healing can truly begin, and love can triumph over hate.

Night of the Soul posterSpring brings the U.S. premiere of Night of the Soul by David Farr.
Performance Dates: February 13-18 at 7:30 pm.
Barnum Studio Theatre

The night before his father’s funeral a man checks into a hotel on the southern coast of England. The hotel is home to the ghost of a young woman from the 14th century who wanders the corridors in silence; unseen, unheard, and longing for human contact. What follows is a story about two souls who must rely on each other to find forgiveness and redemption.
