2018 – 2019 STUDENT 
THEATRE SERIES


PARADISE BLUE
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 

 

AN ILIAD
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.
