Seminar

This darkly humorous portrait of a master teacher and his students contains adult language and themes that make it most appropriate for young people ages 14 and up.

This wild adventure is fun for adults as well as children – although the deliciousness of its storytelling and theatrical style will be best appreciated by patrons ages 11 and older.

Three Sisters

This funny and poignant theatrical classic follows the lives of three women in the midst of an existential crisis. While there is nothing inappropriate in the narrative, Chekhov’s humor and ability to shine light on the mundane details of everyday life will be best appreciated by patrons ages 14 and up.

We Are Proud to Present...

This piece is daring in its ideas and storytelling, and includes adult language, as well as very frank conversations about race and racism. We recommend this play for patrons 16 and older.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Stephen Sondheim’s brilliant musical retelling of the story of a murderous barber and his darkly clever sidekick includes scenes of rape, murder, cannibalism and incest. But it’s also incredibly funny. We recommend this production for patrons ages 14 and older.

The Real Americans

Dan Hoyle’s brilliant exploration of American identity follows the lives of the many people he encountered in his trek through Middle America. Some language and themes may not be appropriate for all audiences. We recommend this production for patrons ages 14 and older.
