BARE  | Open: 06/20/19 Close: 06/29/19
Director Christina Sheehan’s staging of this cult favorite coming-of-age rock musical shines the looking glass on a group of high school students and their struggles at their private catholic boarding school.  Interwoven around a play within a play of Romeo & Juliet, this story of a young group of “fortune’s fools” is both timeless and timely. Join our modern star-crossed lovers as they struggle to come to terms with who they are and who the world thinks they should be and seek answers from their church, their friends, and ultimately from within themselves. “I defy you stars”.

GOD OF MARZ  | Open: 05/30/19 Close: 06/15/19
Get ready for a journey to the “red planet” in this sexy, new comedy with a psychedelic twist. When two astronauts crash land on Mars, they discover life, and it’s not what we thought.  Amid a host of delightfully politically-incorrect supernatural and iconic characters, the travelers attempt a perilous escape. A play full of laughs, original music, burlesque, dance and aerial arts, God of Marz is a sizzling sci-fi world all its own.

Created by Rachel A. Shaw with original music by Mark Lazeski.  Glenn Girón directs and choreographs a cast of six, including Rachel Sheen, Ray Fanara, Laura Leigh Carroll, Adam Chisnall, Chandler Converse, and Linnea Gregg, with a special appearance by Chad Rosenthal (Bway: Mamma Mia!) as the Sandman. 

God of Marz has become a commentary on human pride, vanity, feminism and our need to feel important, because I think big egos (mine included) are funny,” stated playwright Rachel Shaw. “Setting the play in a space world with kooky characters, nightclub-style lighting and an original soundtrack inspired by “A Clockwork Orange” reflects the absurdity of today’s egocentric ideologies. It’s a wild ride!”

From Director Glenn Girón
“For me, theater is here to straighten out a community's moral compass; sometimes by holding up a mirror to the audience, sometimes by showing them the lives of people they'd otherwise never take a moment to understand. I like a good farce because if there's heart to it, you're laughing, and laughing and then BOOM! A lesson; A question you never would have asked yourself, and your forced to wrestle with the answer. I think God of Marz asks some questions most wouldn't stop to ask, and in my 'adaptation' I'm infusing some heart into it to keep the audience close to the characters while still working hard to maintain the fun, sexy, sarcastic vibe that the tech and the music and the dancing evokes! It's a sexy, absurd riot! But one that hopefully makes ya think!”
