About the Play

In this crisp, dynamic retelling of Austen’s classic, matchmaker Emma Woodhouse has just moved on to her newest “project” — a sweet, but modest girl named Harriet Smith. Having played matchmaker for her long-time nanny, vivacious Emma is determined to find Harriet an impressive suitor in spite of her lacking social standing. But as Emma becomes entangled in the romantic lives of her friends and acquaintances, she unwittingly falls in love with the least likely of bachelors in this lighthearted tale of gossip, matrimony, and misunderstanding.

About the Play

A whimsical reinvention of Dickens’ most beloved Christmas story in wacky rhymed couplets. With zoot fruited juices and binka bird geese, from Bed-Headed Fred to Timmy Loo Hoo, this tale of glorious holiday cheer is similar to something Dr. Seuss might have come up with — if he ever had his way with the story.

About the play:
When aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert send to the orphanage in Nova Scotia for a boy to help them on the farm, they get more than they bargain for. Due to a mix-up, they are instead left with 11-year-old Anne Shirley. Over the course of six years, this romantic, hot-headed, and energetic girl wins their hearts and turns the stodgy, rural Canadian community into a bright world of “kindred spirits.” This swift yet theatrical adaptation of the classic novel is an all-ages crowd pleaser.

The show runs about 2 1/2 hours with an intermission.

Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, INC. (www.playscripts.com)

What’s the story about?

A Man for All Seasons is a tragic historical drama depicting the conflict between Sir Thomas More (the Lord Chancellor of England) and King Henry VIII. After Henry fails to get Papal approval for a divorce from Catherine of Aragon, he mandates his subjects to declare him the head of the Church in England. Sir Thomas More cannot in good conscious agree to this. Ultimately convicted of high treason, More is sentenced to death by beheading.
