    To fulfill his dream of becoming a musketeer, young d’Artagnan heads for Paris and into a world of romance, intrigue and action. On the way he meets Milady, the alluring agent of Cardinal Richelieu, and confronts a mysterious swordsman known as the formidable Count de Rochefort. Once in Paris, d’Artagnan unwittingly challenges all three of the Inseparables—Athos, Porthos, Aramis—to a duel, but when the cardinal’s guards arrive, d’Artagnan joins with the musketeers, turning the sword fight into a musketeer victory. Soon he is called to action again to rescue the intriguing Constance Bonacieux, the queen’s seamstress, with whom he falls immediately in love. Through Constance, d’Artagnan learns of the cardinal’s plot to destroy the queen and embraces chance to prove himself worthy of Constance and of the uniform of a musketeer. Athos, Porthos, Aramis and d’Artagnan declare war on the cardinal and stand: “All for one and one for all.”

    *It is highly recommended that performers interested in The Three Musketeers sign up for and pair with the Stage Combat class for the first week since there will be swordplay in this production.

    Written by by Larry Grossman and Hal Hackady, with a book by Warren Lockhart, Arthur Whitelaw, and Michael Grace

    Atop his kennel, Snoopy surveys the skies, scene of his triumph as a World War I flying ace. Modestly he considers his genius. Stoically he accepts that his brilliance in nearly every field of endeavor will forever go unremarked by humankind. He can but uphold his own high standards. (“I refuse to chase a stick that hasn’t been properly sanded and polished”) and his own immutable philosophy (“In the book of life the answers are not in the back”).

    Written by Mary Zimmerman

    Mary Zimmerman’s The Secret in the Wings adapts a group of lesser-known fairy tales to create a theatrical work that sets their dark mystery against her signature wit and humor. The framing story concerns a child and the frightening babysitter with whom her parents leave her. As the babysitter reads from a book, the characters in each of the tales materialize, with each tale breaking off just at its bleakest moment before giving way to the next one.

    Written by Amy Escobar

    “Long before haunted houses existed, haunted woods circled the globe. Homer knew it. The Brothers Grimm knew it. In legend, all the great mythic quests of self-discovery begin with the hero entering a dark wood. Some journeys also end there.” ― Robert Dunbar, Dark Forest
    “It came from the woods. Most strange things do.” ― Emily Carroll, Through the Woods
    The Forest is the setting for the dark tales we will share. It is full of enchantments and wonders and we will journey through its twisting thorns and shadows, entering the home of blood-seekers, bone-crunchers and teeth that snap under full moons. We might find a path or lose our way… anything can happen in the woods…

    In Forest Lore, we will use multiple styles of puppetry (including shadow play, modified Bunraku and object manipulation) to tell fantastical stories and meet the many weird, wonderful and frightening creatures lurking in the woods. Puppetry incorporates physicality, voice work, and lots of teamwork. We will be improving our dexterity, specificity and character work, as well as using our imaginations to bring the impossible to life.
