 It is 1885 during the reign of Queen Victoria and two ships from the British Empire set sail on the high seas for the imaginary kingdom of Rundoon. On one ship, The Neverland, three orphan boys encounter a smart and witty girl named Molly Aster, the daughter of an English lord and minister to the queen. Also on board is a trunk full of precious starstuff that Molly has promised to protect. One of the orphans, known only as Boy, is bitter and unpleasant. Once he meets Molly, his lonely and miserable world is turned upside down. On the other ship, The Wasp, Molly’s father, the famous starcatcher Lord Aster, guards a decoy trunk from pirates who are in search of treasure. The pirate captain, Black Stache, discovers the ruse and goes after The Neverland.​​

A violent storm ensues, and Molly and the orphans find themselves trying to save the valuable trunk from Black Stache, his men, and the both of the ships’ crews. The Neverland is torn asunder in the storm.  In the midst of all the upheaval, Boy meets Black Stache who gives him the name of Peter while trying to convince him to become a pirate. The trunk is almost in secure hands, when in order to save himself from drowning, Peter rides it through the waves to a nearby island. And the adventures have only begun! What becomes of Molly, Peter, and the other lost boys? Why is everyone after the starstuff and what does it do? Does anyone—or anything—ever stop Black Stache and the pirates? Discover more than ever about these classic characters you thought you knew.

 ​A Few Good Men - October 31, November 1,  2, 3 @ 7pm
Gloria Jennings Robinson Auditorium​
 Two soldiers stationed at the Naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, are accused of murder. The dead man is William T. Santiago, a Private who was disliked by even his commanding officer. When the two accused – Lance Corporal Dawson and Private Downey – plead guilty, Lt. Daniel Kaffee and Lt. Cmdr. Joanne Galloway are assigned to be their lawyers. Galloway doesn’t believe Dawson and Downey came up with the idea to kill Santiago; she has suspicions that they were following orders. Kaffee, on the other hand, couldn’t care less – about this trial, about the Navy, or, at first, about Galloway’s opinion. The two need to work together to figure out what exactly happened in Guantanamo Bay – but before they can bring anyone to justice, they need to learn how to work with one another.

 ​The Children's Hour - October 31, November 1, 2, 3 @ 7pm
Black Box Theater


 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:  on Mary Tilford.  The outraged community (prompted by the influential Amelia Tilford, an upstanding member of the 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.  Not to be beaten, the teachers Martha and Karen take the accusations to court in a libel suit and lose.  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 from Hollywood.  Today, it remains a haunting reminder of the horrors of intolerance.​​

 ​Hello, Dolly! - February 6, 7, 8, 9 @ 7pm
Gloria Jennings Robinson Auditorium


Dolly Levi, the famed New York City matchmaker, receives her toughest challenge yet when rich grump Horace seeks a suitable wife.  She successfully matches many others in the city, including Horace’s niece and two clerks, but everything seems to go wrong when it comes to matching Horace.  Dolly finally realizes that maybe she’d like to marry Horace herself, but only if her late husband will send her a sign – and if Horace himself will have her.
Journey to Terezin - April 11, 12 @ 7pm
Gloria Jennings Robinson Auditorium


 Terezin was a small fortress city which stands in today’s Czech Republic.  During World War II, the Nazis used it as a concentration camp, often many of the buildings and facilities were “dressed up” to make conditions in the camp look far better than they were for propaganda purposes.  Many of the Jews, artists and dissidents held at Terezin were shipped to Aushwitz and killed.  After the war, treasure troves of art and music created by the children and people held in Terezin were discovered.  Please join us for a special evening of music and performance by the Reagan choir, dance, orchestra and theatre departments.
