Set in and around a pool of water, Metamorphoses presents the poetic myths of Midas, Orpheus and Eurydice, Eros and Psyche, and others to juxtapose the ancient and contemporary in breathtaking storytelling and gorgeous imagery, exploring the timeless theme of love in all its forms. Metamorphoses contains mild adult language – we recommend this play for students ages 13 and older.
by William Shakespeare
Student Matinees: November 15; November 21 and December 4, 2013
Shakespeare’s tale of shipwrecks and magic is appropriate for all ages, however, due to its classical language, we recommend this play for students ages 12 and older.

Divorced lovers land in adjacent honeymoon suites on a glorious evening on the Riviera igniting a timeless battle of the sexes. This sophisticated British comedy, with its razor sharp wit and quick barbs, will most likely be appreciated by high school students. The play contains alcohol use, cigarettes and some mature themes.
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by John Weidman; based on an idea by Charles Gilbert, Jr.
Student Matinee: April 10, 2014
A theatrical tour-de-force combining Sondheim's signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation's culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it, embodied by America's four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Assassins contains graphic sexual language, gun violence and drug use. We recommend this play for high school students.
