Set in the 24th century, Fahrenheit 451 tells the story of the protagonist, Guy Montag.

A Flea in Her Ear

Gloria Jennings Robinson Auditorium at Ronald Reagan High School

This French farce is set in France at the turn of the 20th Century. Raymonde Chandebise suspects that her husband, Victor Emmanuel Chandebise, is having an affair after he suddenly becomes seemingly uninterested in her (which in fact is due to a nervous condition). She confides in her best friend, Lucienne, who comes up with a plan to test him. They write a letter, from a secret admirer that tells Victor to meet her that night at a hotel that married men are known to frequent for their affairs. Raymonde and Lucienne leave the letter for her husband to find and go to the Hotel to confront Victor as soon as he arrives. Their plan is foiled when Victor receives the letter and assumes that it must be for his handsome bachelor friend, Tournel. Tournel, who is secretly in love with Raymonde, thinks the letter must be from her, and hurries to the hotel to keep the appointment. The whole night becomes a ruckus disaster, complete with gun shots and revolving doors, and it is a miracle when, in the end, Raymonde and Victor Emmanuel reconcile and order is restored.

Patrons should note that this play contains mature themes which may not be approprate for younger audience members.

Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!
Goodnight, Desdemona

(Good Morning, Juliet)

by Ann-Marie MacDonald

May 2, 3, 4, 5 @ 7pm
Black Box Theater

Goodnight Desdemona is the story of Constance Ledbelly, a quirky and absentminded academic who is writing a doctoral thesis about two of William Shakespeare's tragedies. Suddenly, Constance finds herself transported into the worlds of Romeo and Juliet and Othello, where she interferes with the plot, gets to know the characters, and discovers her true identity. With its witty allusions to late-sixteenth-century English culture, its use of Elizabethan dramatic conventions, and its playful reimagining of some of Shakespeare's most enduring characters, Goodnight Desdemona amuses its audience and brings the Elizabethan period to life. It also provides a thoughtful commentary on such issues as feminism, academia, Elizabethan values, and the nature of tragedy.
