Carousel

November 12, 14: 7:00pm; November 14: 2:00pm.

Location: Loyd Auditorium

Set against the rustic romance of a 19th century New England seacoast village, CAROUSEL spins a tale of unconditional faith, indomitable courage, and redemptive love. Featuring songs like “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over,” “If I Loved You,” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, it’s no surprise that CAROUSEL was the creative team’s favorite creation. Directed by R. Cliff Thompson and Gary McKnight.

Special "Dinner and a Show" performance cosponsored by Alumni and FHU Theatre. Tickets $12 for a dinner served in the Brown-Kopel lobby and special seating at the evening performance.

 

NOTE: The performance on the Dickson Campus has been cancelled.

 

julius caesar

by William Shakespeare. Presented by the American Shakespeare Center

February 18

Location: Loyd Auditorium

In this profoundly moving, breathtaking, and deeply human play, Shakespeare shows us a world on fire; a world turned upside down; a world where some of history’s most famous men commit horrific crimes in the name of patriotism and honor. Julius Caesar is a dazzling thrill ride of betrayal, violence, and perhaps most surprisingly — love.

Two Plays in Rep

THE AMISH PROJECT by Jessica Dickey

THE AMISH PROJECT is a fictional exploration of the Nickel Mines schoolhouse shooting in an Amish community, and the path of forgiveness and compassion forged in its wake. This solo performance piece features senior theatre major, Abby Lambert (“Romeo and Juliet,” “Secret Garden”) who portrays the lives of seven men and women caught up in this horrible event. Rachel Geiser will direct.

THE MEMORY TRILOGY by Joseph Frost

A cluttered attic. A mysterious box. A photograph. All evoke memories, both joyous and painful. Frost has created an evening of short plays that dig into the power of memory to hurt and to heal. R. Cliff Thompson directs.

“Once Upon a Time” was never told like this! A handful of intrepid actors enlist the help of the audience in retelling all 209 of the Grimm Brothers’ famous tales.

Directed by Tansy Matheny.
