Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
directed by Peter Moore
with musical Olios by Vern Sutton
Dr. Jekyll pauses before drinking a secret potion -- the result of years of his research. If he swallows it, will he unleash a villainous dark side? Loose his lady love? Risk all in his irresistible quest to know? This twisted tale is a Showboat favorite.

Hamlet by William Shakespeare
Stoll Thrust Stage, Rarig Center
"Who's there? Stand and unfold yourself." With these opening lines, Shakespeare’s Hamlet offers the opportunity to question how we continue to struggle with our own truths, our own actions, our own responsibilities.
Under the direction of Associate Faculty member Barbara Berlovitiz (co-Artistic Director of Theatre de la Jeune Lune) this production is inspired by the lean, athletic approach to the text which the Jeune Lune Company performed with critical acclaim in Minneapolis and New York.
