She Stoops to Conquer

SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER

By Oliver Goldsmith
Directed by Cara Smole `22 (Capstone Project)
"Kate Hardcastle" played by Emily Cothran `22 (Capstone Project)

Kate Hardcastle is looking for love, but Charles Marlow is making it hard to find. When fate draws the two of them together, Kate stoops to conquer the heart and mind of her perplexing suitor. In Oliver Goldsmith’s famous comedy, Kate and her friend Constance have to work around the expectations of polite society to each secure a husband. To make matters worse, Kate’s pesky brother, Tony Lumpkin, works some mischief of his own which results in many mistakes of the night.


 
The Christians

THE CHRISTIANS

By Lucas Hnath
Directed by Prof. Camille Hallstrom
Gospel Choir directed by James Ward

With his award-winning The Christians, playwright Lucas Hnath gives us "a mature... play about faith... a clever, searching and elusively profound work" (The Guardian). In it, Pastor Paul has spent 20 years successfully growing his church from a small storefront to a gleaming megachurch, but now he fears that there may be a crack in the theological foundation. As he shares his new belief in the nature of salvation, the message is met with surprise and then growing trepidation from his closest confidantes in the congregation, threatening to create a schism within the church. Hnath looks with great complexity and compassion at the relationship between belief and behavior—and his evenhanded, unbiased take on faith in modern America has been appreciated by audiences regardless of what they personally believe.

THE CHRISTIANS is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.


 

A Night with Thornton Wilder

A NIGHT WITH THORNTON WILDER

By Thornton Wilder
Directed by Ray Lantrip `23, Sara Rogers `24, and Kara Start `23

Thornton Wilder’s many one act plays often explore the same themes as his American masterpiece, Our Town. Sometimes funny, often poignant, the plays treat on the beauty and the tragedy of everyday.

“The Long Christmas Dinner,” “Love and How to Cure It,” and “Happy Journey to Trenton and Camden” are presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com

 



The Magic Flute

THE MAGIC FLUTE

Sung in English with supertitles

Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder
English Singing Translation by Andrew Porter
New English Libretto by Susan Bernofsky
Directed by Keturah Stickann
Conducted by Prof. Lok Kim

Pamina is stuck in a violent riff between her mother and father, who both think they should raise her alone. When she is kidnapped by her father, her mother (who also happens to be the powerful Queen of the Night) enlists the help of young Prince Tamino and her hapless birdcatcher, Papageno, to bring her daughter back. Part fantasy adventure tale, part family drama, Mozart’s infectious music, and a witty new libretto translation by Susan Bernofsky will evoke raucous laughter and endless tears in this classic opera that reminds us we are all worthy of love.
