THE LEGEND OF GEORGIA McBRIDE by Matthew Lopez

Directed by Cindy Goldfield

September 26 - October 19, 2019

Showtime at Cleo’s Lounge, a dilapidated, small-time club in the Florida Panhandle. Casey’s got to get a new act together fast - he’s broke and his wife just told him there’s a baby on the way. Can our young Elvis impersonator transform himself into a platform-pump-panty-hose-wearing drag queen? A genderbending, sweet and campy, heartfelt celebration of divas and difference.


CINDERELLA: A Fairytale by Sally Cookson and Adam Peck

West Coast Premiere
Directed by Clive Worsley

December 5 - December 21, 2019

Ella’s loving father teaches his little girl the names and calls of all the forest birds and they have a happy life together … until he remarries, and her life is upended. Surrounded by cruel relations, her only allies are a flock of very clever and magical birds. Funny, feisty and enchanting - a delightfully original take on the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale!


THE CHERRY ORCHARD - A Comedy in Four Acts by Anton Chekhov, translated by Richard Nelson, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky

Directed by Susan E. Evans

February 27 - March 21, 2020

A chilly may in the Russian provinces, around the turn of the last century. Lyubov Andreevna returns after a five year absence to her family’s estate to find the cherry orchard in bloom, but all is soon to change. Debts must be paid. Are human souls looking out from every tree trunk? A play about losses, privileges past. and the inescapable future.


VIOLET Music by Jeanine Tesori, Lyrics and Book by Brian Crawley

Based on “The Ugliest Pilgrim” by Doris Betts

Directed by Lynda DiVito

May 28 - June 20, 2020

In 1964 a young woman from a hilltop town in the Blue Ridge Mountains takes a 900-mile Greyhound bus journey - hoping a televangelist preacher in Tulsa will heal her facial scar, and transform her life. Hop aboard and go on a soaring musical pilgrimage with Violet!
