For anyone who doubted their decision to caulk their wagon and float, or shoot more pounds of meat than humanly possible to carry, comes an original comedy about life on the Oregon Trail. Join three intrepid ladies as they journey Westward, bringing the Oregon Trail out of the computer lab and into your face. Snake bites have never been so fun! No oxen were harmed in the making of this play.

Created By and Featuring: Beth Pearson, Jill Rogati, Anne Sablich, and Dave Babcock


Season Seven 
a season of outsiders


This season we look at characters that fall outside the bounds of society, both literally and metaphorically.  The outsiders in our season are exiles from their homes, their families, their kingdoms, and themselves.  Or they never quite fit in from the beginning.  Our season explores how we all fight to find peace with our place in life, to recapture what was lost, or to create a new "normal."

Next to Normal (June 1 - June 17):  The Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning family drama about a woman dealing with mental illness, and the impact the struggle within her own mind has on her entire family.

The Tempest (Summer Dates TBD):  Shakespeare's final play explores exile, magic, love, and redemption within the confines of a single remote island.  And it all begins with a storm...

"O, wonder!
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
That has such people in't!"

Batboy, The Musical (October 13-28): Winner of Off-Broadway's Lucille Lortel, Richard Rodgers, American Academy of Arts and Letters, and Outer Critics Circle Awards, Bat Boy, The Muscial is based on a June 23, 1992 Weekly World News story about a half-boy, half-bat, dubbed "Bat Boy", who grew up living in a cave.
