2015 REPERTORY SEASON 

 

A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
Theatricum’s signature production is back! Romp through the forest with our ardent young lovers, mischievous fairies and a ragtag band of trades people as they encounter a night filled with wonder. There’s no more perfect setting than the leafy bower of Theatricum’s outdoor stage to experience this delightful tale of magic and romance. Time has proven that this passionate production leaves children, teens and adults with a long-lasting love of Shakespeare.
Directed by Melora Marshall & Willow Geer

As You Like It by William Shakespeare
A tale of two brothers - one alienated by ambition, the other estranged by envy - is set in the South of the post-Civil War era, adding traditional American folk music and dance. Rosalind is forced to flee to the forest when her uncle, usurper of her brother's estate, threatens to have her killed. Accompanied by her cousin Celia, Rosalind disguises herself as a man for safety's sake - a disguise that comes in handy for testing the devotion of the noble lover Orlando (also on the run from a hostile family member). Directed by Ellen Geer. 

Harper Lee's
To Kill A Mocking Bird by Christopher Sergel
In a small Southern town during the Great Depression, the idyllic childhood of eight-year-old Scout and her brother Jem is changed forever when their lawyer father defends a poor black man accused of raping a young white woman. Through the drama of the trial and its aftermath the children experience the harsh realities of racial prejudice. Harper Lee's timeless telling of the loss of innocence comes to our stage with all the warmth and poignancy of her beloved Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Directed by Ellen Geer.

August: Osage County by Tracy Letts
A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secret. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoma homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play unflinchingly - and uproariously - explores the dark side of the Midwestern American family. Directed by Mary Jo DuPrey.

Green Grow The Lilacs  by Lynn Riggs
Oklahoma native Lynn Riggs infused his 1931 hit play with a perfect mix of drama, romance and America's most popular folk music. The courtship between a rancher and his gal is threatened by a menacing farmhand. Filled with vivid characters, colorful language, old songs and cowboy ballads, the play that inspired Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma! is rarely performed in its original form, yet remains as compelling now as when it first burst onto the American stage. Directed by Ellen Geer.
