2016-2017 HIGH SCHOOL MATINEES:

On the Verge, by Eric Overmyer, will take place at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, October 11, 2016, in Hicklin Studio Theatre.   Angela Iannone will direct this play.   

In On the Verge, three women voyagers set out to explore the ties of time, place and expectation. They gleefully smash through all of those as they journey through a maze of places and cultural icons, and shatter gender stereotypes. This hilarious and fantastic play is a romp through the uncharted places in our hearts and minds.   A talk back session is scheduled for students at the conclusion of the performance.  Space is limited since the production is in Hicklin Studio Theatre, so please register your school group early!  

Public Enemy, by Henrik Ibsen, a new version by David Harrower, will take place at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, December 6, 2016 in Barnett Theatre.  Jim Butchart will direct this drama.   

Scandals are two-sided affairs. When Dr. Stockmann realizes that the Baths of the local resort are toxic with bacteria the shock waves echo through the town. The Mayor, local press and small businessmen alike take sides on this controversy. Things could be fixed or left alone, but one thing is for sure . . . Dr. Thomas Stockmann has made himself "a public enemy" in his quest for the truth.   A talk back session is scheduled for students at the conclusion of the performance.                 

25th Annual Putman County Spelling Bee, book by Rachel Sheinkin, music and lyrics by William Finn, conceived by Rebecca Feldman will take place at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, February 28, 2017, in Barnett Theatre.   Jim Butchart will direct this musical with musical direction by Sharri VanAlstine.  

Enter the alternate universe of the spelling bee. Six mid-pubescent youngsters duel it out for champion speller in The 25th Annual Putman County Spelling Bee. The musical is hilarious and filled with tween angst and audience participation. Each youth is trying to find spelling nirvana and avoid the soul-crushing ding of the bell that signals a misspelled word. Join us for this hilariously delightful Zen of comic genius in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.   A talk back session is scheduled for students at the conclusion of the performance.  

Animal Farm, by George Orwell, adapted by Ian Woolridge will take place at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, April 25, 2017, in Hicklin Studio Theatre.   Angela Iannone will direct this classic theater piece.  

George Orwell, best known for his blazing "1984," takes a look at power, labor, and survival in Animal Farm, his fable of revolution. What do we believe? What do we do about our beliefs? This classic American theater piece will fascinate and thrill.   A talk back session is scheduled for students at the conclusion of the performance. Space is limited since the production is in Hicklin Studio Theatre, so please register your school group early!
