Fast & Loose
By José Cruz Gonzales, Kirsten Greenidge, Julie Marie Myatt & John Walch
Directed by Kathryn Bentley
If you found out a terrible secret that might hurt the ones you love, would you expose it? Would you choose what served the greatest good even if it violated the rights of an individual? Is it OK to apply your own ethical standards to another culture, group or home? Why should any of us care one bit about what might benefit other people? These are the questions at the center of Fast and Loose, a provocative experiment in dramatic form first performed at the Humana Festival of New American Plays. Four playwrights. Four Questions. One play that explores the depths and limits of personal responsibility in a morally complex world.

The 39 Steps
• By Patrick Barlow
• Directed by Peter Cocuzza
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced "whodunit" for anyone who loves the magic of theatre. This tqo-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, with more than 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance.
7:30 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, Feb. 12-15; 2

There has always been something mesmerizing about dancers moving rhythmically to music…..skipping, leaping, twirling……add colorful lighting effects and you have an evening filled with powerful and delicate, beautiful and inspiring, humorous and solemn sights and sounds. Truly an evening of visual delight brought to you from the dance department for your enjoyment.

Life Is A Dream
• By Pedro Calderon de la Barca
• Directed by Chuck Harper
To protect the country from the horrors prophesied, the young prince Sigismundo is condemned for all eternity to be shut away from his country and his birthright. Banished to a secret world high in the mountains and cut off from the sun, he can only dream of a life reversed: of palaces, empires, freedom - and revenge. A classic from the Spanish Golden Age, Calderon's richly poetic, epic masterpiece explores illusion, reality, fate and destiny against the backdrop of a mythical kingdom.
