AN EVENING WITH EDGAR ALLEN POE
Performances: October 25-26 @ 7:30pm, Century Village's Auburn Community Church
Enter the wonderfully creepy world of Edgar Allan Poe with six faithful adaptations of some of his most haunting works. From old favorites such as The Cask of Amontillado and The Tell-Tale Heart to lesser known gems like The Oblong Box and The System of Dr. Tarr and Professor Fether, this collection of short plays represents Poe at his most horrifying.
ANNE OF GREEN GABLES
Performances: December 10-11 @ 7:30pm, Century Village's Auburn Community Church
When aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert send to the orphanage in Nova Scotia for a boy to help them on the farm, they get more than they bargain for. Due to a mix-up, they are instead left with 11-year-old Anne Shirley. Over the course of six years, this romantic, hot-headed, and energetic girl wins their hearts and turns the stodgy, rural Canadian community into a bright world of kindred spirits.
SIDEWAYS STORIES FROM WAYSIDE SCHOOL
Performances: tentatively January 23-24
There was a terrible mistake - Wayside School was built with one classroom on top of another, thirty stories high! (The builder said he was sorry.) Maybe that's why all kinds of funny things happened at Wayside - especially on the thirteenth floor.
ALICE IN WONDERLAND
Performances: tentatively March 12-13
Alice is cautioned by the White Rabbit to take good care of the Queen's tarts, which are to be served shortly at the croquet match. While Alice's back is turned, the tarts are stolen. Alice, realizing that the White Rabbit will lose his head if the tarts are not discovered in time, goes in search of the thief. Her quest leads her through a maze of incredible and suspenseful adventures.
6 CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF AN AUTHOR
Performances: tentatively April 23-24
First performed in 1923, this intellectual comedy introduces six individuals to a stage where a company of actors has assembled for a rehearsal. Claiming to be the incomplete, unused creations of an author's imagination, they demand lines for a story that will explain the details of their lives.
THE NEVERENDING STORY
Performances: tentatively May 21-22
Told with all the thrills of a classic adventure, the story begins with Bastian, a lonely boy, who stumbles into a curious bookshop where he discovers a curious book—The Neverending Story. Bastian hides in the attic of his school and begins to read, and a huge adventure surges into life. Fantastica, a land of stories, is being destroyed by the Nothing. The Childlike Empress has chosen Atreyu, a young hunter, to be the Hero of the Great Quest. Atreyu, an orphan, is an unlikely choice, but he accepts and, with his horse and companion, Artax, rides to face the menace.
