You’re on your phone, scrolling through your favorite social media app. A lone post catches your eye: “Last night I was plagued by nightmares.” Do you stop or keep scrolling? Adults in the US spend more than 2 hours a day on social media. How does all this screen time affect the way we view the world - and each other? The Feed weaves stories of obsession and revelation, and dares to question the nature of reality itself. Created by FHU students and faculty and inspired by true events, The Feed explores the terrain behind the screen. Directed by R. Cliff Thompson.

FHU's Homecoming Musical.
Set in 1962 rural West Virginia, the musical centers around a group of young people whose fathers were killed in a mining accident ten years earlier. Now, this eclectic band of friends embark on a life-altering journey to the coal mine that took their father’s life. With its soaring bluegrass and pop-inspired score, this inspirational new musical finds both the streaks of light and the heart of darkness within us all. Directed by Jessica Hixson and Sarah Wilsford.

Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award, Doubt tells the story of a beloved and progressive parish priest, Father Flynn, who stands accused of a horrible crime by Sister Aloysius, principal of St. Nicholas Catholic School in the Bronx. Based only upon her own suspicions, she goes on a mission to have Father Flynn removed from his duties at the church and school. Directed by Spencer Hebert.
Pretending to be a supremely pious religious advisor, Tartuffe wheedles his way into the home of the wealthy M. Orgon and promptly bamboozles his benefactor, while trying to marry his daughter, seduce his wife, and steal his property. Egotism, young love, deception, and delusion collide in Molière's classic work. A comedy just as relevant today as it was in 17th century Paris, Tartuffe skewers pretension and recognizes true faith. Directed by R. Cliff Thompson.

Haunting and slyly funny, Smokefall explores the lives of this family in a lyrical treatise on the fragility of life and the power of love. Directed by Collin Baker.
