Ordinary Days

 

  • Music and Lyrics by Adam Gwon
  • Directed by Lisa Brescia
  • Balcony Theatre (second floor in Craig Hall)

Four young New Yorkers are searching for love and meaning amidst the frenetic pace of the big city. Jason is hoping to move his relationship with Claire to the next level by moving into her apartment, but merging their lives means that both must let go of mementos and attachments of the past, and tensions are rising between the couple. Meanwhile, deadline-driven grad student Deb is frantic over losing the research notes for her thesis on Virginia Woolf. Fortunately, they are found by Warren, a struggling artist who suggests that Deb meet him at the Metropolitan Museum of Art so he can return her notes. Little do they know that their meeting will have a profound effect, not only on their own lives, but also on Jason and Claire!  Events unfold through a series of connected vignettes and songs that capture the random yet pivotal moments of our Ordinary Days —and make them extraordinary!

Much Ado About Nothing

  • Written by William Shakespeare
  • Directed by Dr. Kyle A. Thomas

    Romance and mischief are in the air when a group of soldiers return from battle to stay at Governor Leonato’s idyllic estate in Messina, Sicily.  Leonato’s virtuous daughter Hero catches the eye of Claudio, while Hero’s feisty cousin Beatrice engages in flirtatious banter with Claudio’s friend Benedick. Don Pedro, the soldiers’ commander, initially encourages Claudio’s courtship of Hero — until Don John, his jealous brother, hatches a plot to discredit Claudio by disgracing Hero.  As Beatrice and Benedick become the objects of harmless matchmaking, Hero becomes the target of ruinous slander. Believing her to be unfaithful, Claudio rejects her at the alter, and it seems that Don John’s treachery has triumphed. But clever plots can work both ways, and love prevails in Shakespeare’s witty comedy, Much Ado About Nothing!

She Kills Monsters

  • Written by Qui Nguyen
  • Directed by Sarah Wiggin

Agnes Evans is a young woman whom is grappling with grief over the sudden loss of her parents and teenage sister, Tilly, who have died in a car accident. The sisters had little in common and had not been close. While Agnes’ life has been firmly rooted in reality and comfortable routine, Tilly’s was one of rich imagination and fantasy roleplaying games.  Agnes discovers a notebook containing a Dungeons and Dragons game module conceived by her sister, and with the help of Tilly’s friend and dungeon master, Chuck, embarks upon an adventurous quest to finally know her sister.  Her journey takes her to a mysterious world of monsters and heroines, where she discovers Tilly’s secret struggles, as well as her strength and courage. Both in the game and in real life, She Kills Monsters!
