“Dancing With Hamlet”
Written by Deanna Strasse
Directed by Carol Zippel
When the matriarch of the Flack family, Rosie, decides to remarry, her three grown children are not exactly thrilled with the idea. They are mortified, however, when their father dies tragically in a car accident just a week before the big day and Rosie decides to go on with the wedding. The Flack’s only daughter, Elvira, begins to see the whole thing as a tragedy… on a Shakespearean level. In the days leading up to the wedding, someone is out to sabotage the marriage, someone just wants to survive it and Elvira can’t make up her mind. Hearts will break, but the show must go on.

“The Children’s Hour”
Written by Lillian Hellman • Directed by Dylan Sladky
Set in a fictional New England town in the 1930s, The Children’s Hour tells the story of two women who are unjustly accused of homosexual activity by one of their students: one Mary Tilford. The outraged community (prompted by the influential Amelia Tilford, an upstanding member of Lancet–who also happens to be the indulgent grandmother of Mary) quickly withdraws all of their students, causing a witch hunt that ultimately forces the school to close. Their lives quickly unravel as they become social pariahs. At its premiere, Hellman’s The Children’s Hour was a controversial piece that caused the author to be blacklisted. Today, it remains a haunting reminder of the horrors of intolerance.
