A special matinee of I Hate Hamlet, by Paul Rudnick, will take place at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, October 6, 2015, in Barnett Theatre.   Angela Iannone will direct this comedy. 

  Television actor Andrew Rally has been offered the role of a lifetime when he has the opportunity to take the stage as Hamlet. The problem is that he hates Hamlet. Further complications and hilarity arise when Rally is visited by the ghost of John Barrymore, a legendary Hamlet, who wants to coach him about life, love, and acting. With one eye on the twinkling lights of Hollywood and another on the stage, Rally must decide where his ambitions truly lie.

Radium Girls - Tuesday, December 1

A special matinee of Radium Girls, by D.W. Gregory, will take place at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, December 1, 2015 in Barnett Theatre.  Jim Butchart will direct this drama. 

  It's the height of World War I, and soldiers are in desperate need of watches they can read in the dark. The U.S. Radium Corporation has a solution: a radium-based paint that is applied to the dials. When the factory girls hired to paint the watches start to fall severely ill, there is an outcry for justice. What follows is a media sensation and decade-long legal battle that would change workers' rights forever. Based on a true story.   A talk back session is scheduled for students at the conclusion of the performance.

With the help of his downstairs neighbor Mrs. Lovett, Todd cooks up a horrifying scheme to fill the finest meat pies in London. Featuring score and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, this macabre musical thrills and chills in the best way.   A talk back session is scheduled for students at the conclusion of the performance.
