2022-2023 SEASON SYNOPSES & CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS


November 10-13, 2022
THE CRUCIBLE

Set in the town of Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, Arthur Miller’s classic tale of suspicion, hysteria, evil, and truth is directed by ZARAH SHEJULE. This terrifying and superbly-crafted script, Mr. Miller’s commentary on the McCarthy “Red Trials” of his own day, is perhaps even more timely now than then.

 

December 15-18, 2022
A TUNA CHRISTMAS

TIFFANY JACKSON corrals Raymond Kester, Andrew Persinger, and Martin Stapleton, as they portray, once again at THE ALLEY, the characters of fictional TUNA, TEXAS. This time the mayhem has a seasonal flavor. Come join in the warmth of laughter, during the Christmas Season.

Jan. 19-21, 2023
SPOON RIVER ANTHOLOGY

Meet the 60-some residents, now passed on, of the mythical town of Spoon River. Portrayed in free verse monologues and music, and directed by KAREN SIPES, these vignettes talk of the secrets these souls took to their graves. A handful of actors impersonate the community in this moving play for a winter’s night.

February 16-19, 2023
ROPE

For the mere sake of adventure, danger, and “fun”, two undergraduates murder a fellow, innocent, and harmless, friend. CAMERON & STEPH VALE co-direct this script; inspired by the gruesome true Leopold & Loeb murder, and later played out, onscreen, in an early classic Hitchcock film of the same title.

March 16-19, 2023
ROMEO & JULIET

The ANDERSON MUSEUM of ART will once again house the lyrical phrases of Shakespeare, with the production of this classic play. KAYLA CANGE directs this tragedy of families, societal status, and young love, featuring some of the most famous lines in all theatre.
