Ernest in Love
Book and Lyrics by Anne Croswell
Music by Lee Pockriss
Directed by Barry Fuller
Based on Oscar Wilde’s comic masterpiece The Importance of Being Ernest, this gem brings the lilt of music and lyrics to the brilliance of Wilde’s own wit. To the tale of two young gentlemen and their lady loves, add a ferocious Mother-in-law-to-be, a baby in a handbag, mixed identities, and madcap situations and a good time had by all!
Our Country’s Good
By Timberlake Wertenbaker
Directed by Thomas Jones
A leading London critic describes the comedy/drama as “Highly theatrical, often funny and at times dark and disturbing. It sets an infant civilization on the stage with clarity, economy and insight…(as) it related the true story of the first theatrical performance in Australia.”
Book by Roger O. HIrson
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Directed by Julia “Cookie” Ewing
What is a young man to do when his father is Charlemagne and he is heir to the Holy Roman Empire? When he has everything and nothing? With a dazzling script and score, Pippin is an 8th-centure quest for fulfillment in song and dance you won’t want to miss.
The Shadow Box
By Michael Cristofer
Directed by Brian Mott
In separate cottages on a hospice’s grounds, three terminally ill patients, their families and friends plumb the depths of love and the strength it gives. Beautifully written, the play celebrates this power of love over the frailty of the human condition.
