Alice in Wonderland

Directed by Marc Jacobs Movement by Nina Haft
Dates: December 13 @ 8 PM December 14 & 15 @ 2 PM
Location: Studio Theatre

Alice's antic adventures are presented in a dizzy revelation where actors can become mushrooms or flamingos in an instant. This topsy-turvy adaptation takes the classic tale and makes it a totally new piece of theatre of the imagination.


Avenue Q

Directed by Marc Jacobs
Choreographed By: Laura Elaine Ellis
Music Direction by Sierra Dee
Dates: March 7 & 8, 14 & 15 @ 8 PM March 16 @ 2 PM
Location: University Theatre

A Tony Award winner for Best Musical, Avenue Q is like Sesame Street for adults. Humans and puppets interact and deal with life, work, and sex, as well as the problems of having a useless degree and not being quite as "special" as our parents told us we were.

Warning: This musical features puppets in adult situations! "...a savvy, sassy and eminently likable...breakthrough musical" – Ben Brantley, New York Times
