The Miser by MoliƩre

Adapted and directed by Dave Rzeszutek 

Performed in the style of Commedia Dell’Arte, this classic comedy of money versus love revolves around the central character, Harpagon, a wealthy but miserly old man who values his money above all else.  Obsessed with hoarding his wealth and constantly scheming to save money at the expense of his family and servants, he plans to marry his daughter Élise to a wealthy old man to secure a large dowry.   Meanwhile, he himself plans to marry Mariane, a young woman whom his son, Cléante, is in love with. Cléante and Élise, along with Harpagon’s servants, plot to thwart their father’s plans and pursue their own romantic interests.   In the end, the various schemes and deceptions are revealed, and Harpagon’s greed and miserliness are exposed.   The Miser is a timeless satire on greed, selfishness, and the absurdities of human behavior, and it remains one of Moliére’s most celebrated and enduring comedies.

The Night Witches by Rachel Bublitz

Studio XP:  Student directed by Zoe Gilbert

The Night Witches of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment flew in planes made of canvas and wood, and they dropped bombs on Germans every 15 minutes through the night to keep their enemy from sleeping.   They were constantly being shuffled and moved to perform new duties; mechanics became navigators, navigators became pilots, and pilots became commanders.  Nina and Vera have just finished their training as navigators and are moments away from their first combat mission.  As they fight their nerves, the women around them use different means of bolstering their spirits, some more successfully than others.  But when the time comes, to the sky they must go.  Tonight, however, is different than any night they’ve faced before – their enemy has employed a new tactic taking them completely by surprise.  Using movement, song and lyrically styled dialogue, we follow these brave women through one fateful evening during the war.

Women Who Weave by J.S. Puller

Directed by Peggy Mead-Finizio

When the plucky, ambitious twelve-year-old Atalanta is excluded from the men's boar hunt, she is convinced that being female means giving up any chance at being heroic. But her mother comforts her with the stories of the Fates, the three goddesses who weave the destiny of all human beings. A skeptical Atalanta dozes off and drifts into a bizarre dream that carries her to the loom of the Fates, where she lives the stories of three great Greek heroines and discovers that heroism has more to do with the decisions we make than the fate we're born into.
