2018 – 2019 STUDENT THEATRE SERIES
November 21 – December 16, 2018
By Dominique Morisseau
Directed by Awoye Timpo
Blue, a gifted trumpeter, contemplates selling his once-vibrant jazz club in Detroit’s Blackbottom neighborhood to shake free the demons of his past and better his life. But where does that leave his devoted Pumpkin, who has dreams of her own? And what does it mean for the club’s resident bebop band? When a mysterious woman with a walk that drives men mad comes to town with her own plans, everyone’s world is turned upside down. This dynamic and musically-infused drama shines light on the challenges of building a better future.
Student Matinees: Thursdays, December 6th and 13th, 2018 @ 10:30 a.m.
*Recommended for grades 9 – 12
March 20 – April 14, 2019
Adapted From Homer
By Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare
Translation by Robert Fagles
Directed by Whitney White
Visionary creators Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare have crafted a sprawling yarn based on Homer’s epic poem that spins the familiar tale of gods and goddesses, undying love and endless battles told through an original and immediate voice. An Iliad tells the story of humanity’s unshakeable attraction to violence, destruction and chaos. Has anything really changed since the Trojan War?
Student Matinees: Friday, March 29th, Thursday April 4th, and Thursday April 11th, 2019 @ 10:30 a.m.
*Recommended for grades 6 – 12
A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2
May 1 – 26, 2019
By Lucas Hnath
Nora made the shocking decision to leave her husband and children and begin a life of her own. Many years have passed since she decided to slam the door on everything. Now, there’s a knock on the same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind? Smart and engrossing, the Tony-Award winning A Doll’s House, Part 2 has a fresh take on a masterwork of world drama.
Student Matinees: Thursdays, May 16th and 23rd, 2019 @ 10:30 a.m.
*Recommended for grades 8 – 12

In the event that schools are cancelled due to inclement weather or should LWT cancel a performance due to inclement weather, LWT will make it a priority to work with each Student Group to ensure students are able to participate fully in the Student Theatre Series. First, LWT will exchange the tickets to another performance of the same production, subject to availability. If tickets are not available for the same production, LWT will exchange tickets to another performance in the Student Matinee Series, again subject to availability.
