As You Like It
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Catherine Weidner
What happens in the Forest of Arden stays in the Forest of Arden! When a Duke in exile, his banished daughter, a willful young man and their loyal followers flee to the tranquility of the forest, they discover their true selves and the power of redemption. This most exquisite of Shakespeare’s comedies combines a road movie, a buddy picture, a love story, and a battle of wills.

Composed by George Frideric Handel
Directed by R. B. Schlather
Handel brings us a classic tale of fatal attraction. Jupiter promises his mortal love, Semele, “endless pleasure, endless love” and spirits her away from her life as a member of Thebes’ first family. Jupiter’s wife, however, hatches a plan to destroy her rival with the help of the god of sleep and a magic mirror. Passion fuels and consumes the love between Jupiter and Semele, but hope springs from its ashes.

Based on the 1991 film, this musical retells the memories of marine Eddie Birdlace as he returns home from Vietnam. Four years earlier, Eddie and his fellow marines organized a “dogfight”, a cruel game in which the man who brings the ugliest date to the party wins the pot of money. Eddie finds a plain waitress named Rose, who challenges his idea of skin-deep beauty.

By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Greg Bostwick
One of the most acclaimed and wide-ranging works in contemporary English drama, Arcadia is a witty and compelling study of the nature of people, events, and phenomena both natural and artistic, real and imagined. Can the world best be experienced and described through classical mathematical philosophy or romantic works of art? And just how does intangible and unpredictable human attraction influence the behavior of the physical world? With memorable characters situated in both the 19th and 20th centuries, all is not as it seems in the unspoiled, harmonious wilderness of Arcadia.
