Quilters

Written by Molly Newman & Barbara Damashek.
Directed by Dinah Leavit.

Originally developed and produced at the Denver Center Theatre company, this joyous and moving celebration of American womanhood became a record-setting regional theater success before its presentations on Broadway and at the Edinburgh Festival. Combining music, dance movement, and scenes of vivid dramatic intensity, the play pays eloquent tribute to the courage and spirit of our nation's pioneer woman.

"QUILTERS is a show pieced together with love and stitched with pride. A thing of beauty, comfort and joy."
- NY Post

"A tender and moving theatre work, a human patchwork rippling in the breeze of memory."
- Newsweek

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Written by Barbara Robinson.
Directed by Anthony Haigh.

The hilarious story of the efforts of a woman and her husband to put on the annual church Christmas pageant, despite having to cast the horrible Herdman kids -- probably the meanest, nastiest, most inventively awful kids in the history of the world.

"One of the best Christmas stories ever -- and certainly one or the funniest."
- Seattle Times

 

Pygmalion

Written by Bernard Shaw.
Directed by Kenneth Bordner.

Based on classical myth, Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion plays on the complex business of human relationships in a social world. Phonetics Professor Henry Higgins tutors the very Cockney Eliza Doolittle, not only in the refinement of speech, but also in the refinement of her manner. When the end result produces a very ladylike Miss Doolittle, the lessons learned become much more far reaching. The successful musical My Fair Lady was based on this Bernard Shaw classic.(bartleby.com)
