    Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

    JUNE 27 – OCTOBER 12, 2019
    Randall L Jones Theatre
    It’s bright! It’s loud! It’s technicolor! It’s Joseph’s new coat! And it sets the tone for a frolicking Biblical satire filled with vaudevillian tunes, country and western swings, calypso, and good old rock and roll. This classic musical has been going strong for fifty years and guarantees to leave everyone in the family humming for days.

    Macbeth

    JUNE 27 – SEPTEMBER 6, 2019
    Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre
    Haunted by the witches’ prophecies and spurred by his wife’s ambitions (as well as his own taste for power), Macbeth dares to tempt fate. But in this, one of the world’s first psychological thrillers, he slowly finds that his murderous machinations are doomed to bitter and tragic failure.

    Hamlet

    JUNE 28 – OCTOBER 12, 2019
    Randall L Jones Theatre
    Prince Hamlet wants the truth—and retribution. Driven by his father’s ghost and the corrupt society all around him, he plots and withdraws, schemes and retreats. Written at the height of Shakespeare’s career, this powerful examination of the human psyche is the Bard’s most mature and chilling revenge tragedy.

    The Book Of Will

    JUNE 28 – SEPTEMBER 5, 2019
    Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre
    Without William Shakespeare, we wouldn’t have the world’s most memorable plays— and without his friends, we wouldn’t know he wrote them. After the Bard’s death, his fellow actors realize that the plays they love are being muddled and even lost; they know they need to publish a collection of his plays. Thus, they launch a seemingly impossible mission to print “the book” of his plays and save his legacy.

    The Conclusion Of Henry Vi Parts Two And Three

    JUNE 29 – AUGUST 31, 2019
    Eileen And Allen Anes Studio Theatre
    Pitting the Lancasters and the Yorks in a battle for the crown and the future of England, this story is at times both grim and heroic. The epic tale of kings and families at war will be concluded in one grand event spanning the War of the Roses in an epic and expanded experience. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime theatrical event.

    Twelfth Night

    JUNE 29 – SEPTEMBER 7, 2019
    Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre
    Orsino loves Oliva (who won’t give him the time of day). Olivia loves Viola (whom she thinks is a boy). Viola loves Orsino (who doesn’t know she’s a girl). Malvolio loves being in love; and Sir Andrew, Toby Belch, and Maria love life to its fullest. It’s all rollicking confusion, but these hilarious characters do, at last, find love where they least expect it.

    Every Brilliant Thing

    JULY 11 – OCTOBER 12, 2019
    Eileen And Allen Anes Studio Theatre
    Mom’s in the hospital. She’s “done something stupid.” So, you start a list of everything that’s brilliant and worth living for. #1. Ice cream. #2. Water fights. #3. Staying up past your bedtime. You leave it on her pillow, hoping. And you add to the list throughout your life. This funny and moving play is a tribute to resilience and hope—as it enlists you to tell this heartfelt story.

    The Price

    SEPTEMBER 12 – OCTOBER 12, 2019
    Eileen And Allen Anes Studio Theatre
    A powerful, riveting masterpiece by one of America’s greatest playwrights, The Price spirals around two brothers’ struggle to make peace with their past. Years after an angry breakup, Victor and Walter meet again after the death of their father. As they sort through his possessions, the memories evoked stir up old hostilities and bring the angst of years of unanswered questions back to the surface.
