A Midsummer Night’s Dream
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Julia “Cookie” Ewing
When four lovers escape from the city to the forest, their places in love, friendship, society, and personal relationships are transformed. But is the play they go to, and take us to, real? Shakespeare’s classic comedy begins the season with romance, adventure, and especially, laughter.
Music by Leonard Bernstein
Book by Hugh Wheeler
Directed by Barry Fuller
Musical Direction by Tony Lee Garner
A revival of the premier production of the McCoy Theatre presented – February 1981. This uproariously funny and innovative adaptation of Voltaire’s story has a special place in the history of ideas, as well as in the life of the McCoy. Marler Stone and Charles Billings return to recreate their roles as Dr Pangloss (Voltaire) and Maxmillian.
Characters in Search of an Author
By Luiggi Pirandello
Directed by Elfin Frederich Vogel
Elfin Frederich Vogel, as guest director, brings his unique expertise to the Pirandellian classic. Taking the idea of place, and indeed art, to extraordinary levels, Pirandello asks the spectator to question the various roles of the author, actors, director, characters, audience, and even reality, in the theatre event. A classic of the contemporary stage.

By Joe Orton
Directed by Frank Bradley
Farce, this one included, finds many of its roots placed in England. There is no loss in hilarity, though, when it is transplanted to America. This savage comedy deals with mistaken identity, coincidence, and pretentiousness.
