Spring 2012 Productions
Rabbit Hole, by David Lindsay-Abaire, directed by Robert Reid
Yes, Rabbit Hole is about a bereaved family, but that does not mean they go through the day glazed over, on the verge of tears, morose or inconsolable.... The characters are, instead, highly functional, unsentimental, spirited and often funny people who are trying to maneuver their way through their grief and around each other as best they can. Rehearsals begin: 2/27/12. Opening Performance: 3/31/12. Closing Performance 5/6/12
Buffalo Gal, by A.R. Gurney
Directed by guest artist Rebecca Hilliker. Rebecca has received 11 Meritorious Achievement Awards in directing from the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, Region 7-and one on the national level. She is currently the National Chair for KCACF. She helped Moises Kaufman develop the internationally acclaimed play The Laramie Project.
Art imitates life in this comedy about an actress who has fallen on hard times and returns home to Buffalo, N.Y., to rekindle her career on the local stage. She embraces the role of Madame Ranevskaya in Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard; finding the character's plight tied to her own. Rehearsals begin: 4/23/12. Opening Performance: 6/2/12, Closing Performance: 7/8/12
