Bard's Birthday Bash Matinee Performance April 22 at 2PM
Don't miss one of Shakespeare's earliest, craziest comedies! Best friends Valentine and Proteus both end up pursuing the Duke of Milan's beautiful daughter, Silvia. However, Proteus has a girl back home. When she arrives in town, the romance gets even more entangled. This rarely-produced play also features three ruthless outlaws, two wacky servants, and "the sourest-natured dog that lives." A lively ensemble of players rides the Bard's wild comedy into a familiar setting for modern audiences!
Featuring Nolan Blake Long, Mystie Peters, Carlos Vera, Shelbe McClain, Angela Poncetta, Claire Rock, Victoria Lusk, Brent Starrh, Shaquille L. Hill, Olivia Vega, Morgan Von Sydow, Joey Bedard, Cheyenne Reyes, Grace MacArthur, Lindsay Pearson, Hannah Yeasley, and Cory Geurtsen.
Join us for our annual Bard's Birthday Bash on Sunday, April 22 at 2PM. Celebrate the birth of the Bard as he turns 454 years old with cake, cocktails, and fun!

Playing April 20 & 21 at 11:30pm, April 22 at 6pm
Adapted and reinvented from the 1920 silent film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, the stage production follows Francis, her quixotic betrothal to the beautiful Jane, the horrifying mystery of Dr. Caligari, and the subsequent murders that precede his path. In his fervor to learn and reveal the nature of the doctor and his somnambulist Cesare, Francis risks her life, her lover—and her mind.
CALIGARI cultivates stylized and expressionistic movement to capture the romanticism and extremes of the human experience, while exploring truthful and more naturalistic moments in connectivity and relationships. The forced perspective and shadow play of the film inspired CALIGARI’s theatrical environment; with an immersive audience experience, non-traditional stage lighting, and a dissonant dreamscape world.
Featuring: Michelle Guerrero, Faith Hall, Alissa Morrow, Kelsey Morrow, Angela Poncetta, Claire Rock, Paul Sosa, Julia Stansbury, Eric Tolley, Tray Trimble, and Morgan Von Sydow
