Main Stage

Red Noses
1348. Auxerre, France. The Bubonic Plague. A Comedy.
You will die laughing...

Opens October 30 at 8PM.
other performances:
October 31 & November 1 at 8PM.
November 1 & 2 at 3PM.

Red Noses dramatizes historic examples of how people desperately attempted to ward off the plague: debauchery, self-flagellation, prayer, fires and persecution of leapers. It also demonstrates the calculation of politics for self-preservation and the breakdown of society that occurred in 1340s. A priest comes into this world, who only desires to be useful in some way. He finds his calling (by uncovering his inner clown) and while he can't save people, he brings them a moment of joy before their ultimate deaths. We hope you enjoy Barnes' tale of a misfit group of clowns who work to change the world with a ministry of hope and joy.

They Slice the Air
Opens December 5 at 8PM.
other performances:
December 6 at 8PM
December 6 & 7 at 3PM

A resonating work of interdisciplinary performance inspired by the epic poem written by Dee Galloway and the enlightened research of Dr. Lourin Plant. Armed with African-American Narratives, Spirituals, and Poetry, this premier work of choreographer Paule Turner is a visceral testament of the transformative and transcendental powers of the African-American spiritual to bring us closer to humbly reconciling the truth of what we are, together.
