September 23 - October 29, 2016 Hanna Theatre, Playhouse Square

A Tony Award-Winning Musical Classic

Book and Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner Music by Frederick Loewe Adapted from George Bernard Shaw's Play Pygmalion Directed by Victoria Bussert Choreographed by Gregory Daniels When the opinionated linguistics professor and bachelor Henry Higgins wagers that he can convert a lowly Cockney flower girl named Eliza Doolittle into a lady of high society, he never bargains for the unexpected transformation that she will evoke within him. Featuring such enduring Broadway favorites as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly,” “The Rain in Spain,” “On the Street Where You Live” and “Get Me to the Church on Time,” this acclaimed musical is a joyful classic that the entire family will enjoy.

Shakespeare's Romantic Comedy

By William Shakespeare Directed by Drew Barr

Hope seems lost when a violent shipwreck separates young Viola from her boat and twin brother. However, tragedy quickly turns romantic when she washes ashore in Illyria – an exotic island that is about to be turned topsy-turvy by love. To survive in her strange new world, she disguises herself as a boy messenger and enters the employ of an island inhabitant. Misplaced affections and misunderstood intentions result when she unexpectedly becomes an object of desire to the woman her employer sent her to woo! Time may correct the course of the isle’s myriad misguided lovers, but not before the Bard bewitches all in his enchanting comedy.

An Unforgettable Psychological Thriller

By Frederick Knott Directed by Joseph Hanreddy

A 1960s Greenwich Village apartment is the scene for a deadly game of cat and mouse when a group of con-men manipulate and terrorize an unsuspecting blind woman to reclaim a mysterious doll. When the doll can’t be found, the situation spirals out of control. With murder afoot and suspense building, the woman deftly decides to “wait until dark,” in an attempt to outwit her assailants. The thrills begin when the lights go out. Wait Until Dark’s chilling conclusion is proof positive that what you can’t see can hurt you. generous support PROVIDED BY:

The World's Most Famous Tragedy

By William Shakespeare Directed by Charles Fee

When his suspiciously widowed mother swiftly marries his uncle, amidst demands for revenge from his murdered father’s ghost, the young prince Hamlet resolves that something is indeed “rotten in the state of Denmark.” Forced by circumstance into a world turned upside down by betrayal, distrust and madness, Hamlet spirals through a torrent of erratic emotion and bizarre behavior in a relentless pursuit of truth. Torn between duty and doubt, he wrestles tenaciously with the profound question “to be or not to be,” until fate exacts its final answer. generous support PROVIDED BY:

Great Lakes Theater's production of Hamlet is part of Shakespeare in American Communities, a national program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.

Hanna Theatre, Playhouse Square

A Pitch-Perfect Jukebox Musical

Written and originally directed and choreographed by Stuart Ross Musical continuity supervision and arrangements by James Raitt Originally produced by Gene Wolsk Directed by Victoria Bussert Choreographed by Gregory Daniels

On one stormy night in the 1960s, four eager singers known as The Plaids met their untimely ends in a cherry red, 1954 Mercury on the way to their first big gig. In 2017, this quartet of comic crooners gets one last chance to return from the afterlife to do the show they never got to perform. The Plaids deliver delightfully with playful patter and angelic voices in an unforgettable show that will have audiences rolling in the aisles when they’re not humming along to the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s. generous support PROVIDED BY:
