Written by Steven Dietz
October 18 through November 5, 2023
A psychological thriller adapted by Steven Dietz based on the 1939 play by Patrick Hamilton and the 1944 Ingrid Bergman film. Gaslight thrillingly delves into the horrors of psychological abuse, where the truth is fickle for characters and audience alike. With undertones of Sherlock Holmes and film noir, it’s a story replete with mystery, double-crosses, and at its core a statement on the injustice and impact of abuse. Recommended for grades 9 through 12.

Red Riding Hood

By Allison Gregory
January 10 through January 28, 2024
Wolfgang, the greatest actor in the world, is preparing for the performance of his lifetime in the “true story” of Red Riding Hood when a delivery driver carrying a mysterious package interrupts his rehearsal.

The Porch on Windy Hill

By Sherry Stregack Lutken, Lisa Helmi Johansen, Morgan Morse, & David M. Lutken.
April 3 through April 21, 2024
A bi-racial Korean classical violinist, Mira, and her music history grad-student boyfriend, Beck, escape months of Covid-isolation to the mountains of North Carolina. Their journey takes a surprising turn when they meet Edgar, and Mira faces a flood of memory, pain, hope, and discovery that follows. A moving, modern American play about family- with enough music for a real ‘hoot ‘n’ holler’ as the cast- Lisa Helmi Johanson, Morgan Morse, and David Lutken perform a dozen traditional and bluegrass gems. The quintessentially American melodies running through The Porch on Windy Hill illuminate a young woman’s complex, contemporary tale of healing. Recommended for grades 9-12.
