It’s the Feast of the Epiphany at St. Cecilia’s, a private, coed, Catholic boarding school. Peter, an alter boy, dozes off during mass and has a nightmare in which he is outed and condemned by everyone for being gay. Nevertheless, he feels increasingly compelled to reveal not only his own true nature, but also his secret relationship with the school’s golden boy, Jason, who fears losing everything. Compounding their angst are peer rivalries and crushes, parental expectations and rigid church doctrines. The school production of “Romeo and Juliet” brings matters to a head, and the lovers must decide whether to continue hiding or bare their souls. This timely musical features a heartpounding rock score that propels its powerful message!

Sightlines: Spring Dance Concert

Directed by Sara Brummel
Showing at the Craig Hall Coger Theatre

In theatrical terms, a sightline is the hypothetical line from an observer’s eye to the subject on stage. Good theater design and staging allow unobstructed views of the central action so the audience may experience the full aesthetic impact of the performance. This year’s Spring Dance Concert explores the broader connections between spectators, performers and creators of dance compositions. Going beyond the visual definition of sightlines, these original pieces represent unique perspectives and invite individual interpretations, extending sightlines from the eye to the human psyche. Come experience the beauty and diversity of dance expression and the multilayered meaning of Sightlines!

The Rimers of Eldritch

Written by Lanford Wilson
Directed by Telory Arendell
Showing at the Craig Hall Coger Theatre

Caution: contains strong language and adult themes

In the middle of the 20th century, in the middle of the country, the once prosperous mining community of Eldritch, Missouri, is locked in a death spiral. The local economy has collapsed, the population has dwindled, and those who remain are unable to deal with the present reality. They cling to memories of their “glory days,” to law and order and religion, but beneath the surface lurks moral corruption. When a local hermit is found murdered, the townsfolk close ranks, but questions emerge: Who was Skelly Mannor? Who murdered him, and why? As the suspense builds, the truth is revealed through a mosaic of conversations and multiple points of view. Despite its dark undertones, The Rimers of Eldritch is a haunting, lyrical and poetic exploration ofAmerican identity by Missouri’s own Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright.
