TWELFTH NIGHT is full of disguises, mistaken identities, love triangles, and practical jokes.

Orsino instructs Cesario to help him win the affections of Lady Olivia, but Olivia falls in love with Cesario. Add in practical jokes from Sir Toby, Maria, Andrew Aguecheek, Feste, the reappearance of Viola’s twin brother Sebastian at exactly the wrong time, and you have a Shakespeare comedy that everyone is sure to enjoy!

The Tony Award winning Urinetown is a musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he’s had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

Featuring Chelsea Ann Atkins, Aaron Brakefield, Thomas Azar, Rick Connor, Benjamin Davis, Kelly Wallace, Taylor Marlatt, Jon Kilpatrick, David Sims, Kaylee Gonzalez, Chris Berry, DeBryant Johnson, Javier Skipper, Ashlyn Uribe, Drew Whitley, and Giulia Marie Dalbec.
