2012-2013 Theatre Season

Alfred Hitchcock’s - The 39 Steps

By Patrick Barlow
Directed by Eric Bishop

The 39 Steps, a suspenseful-romantic-comedy, based on the 1935 movie by Alfred Hitchcock.  A handful of actors play over 100 characters in this Tony-winner that kept Broadway rollicking for the past three years. It is part juicy spy novel, part Monty Python, and it preserves the brilliance originally created by the master of suspense. Suave hero Richard Hannay learns from a beautiful spy about a plot of international espionage and suddenly finds himself caught up in a race from London to Scotland in hopes of stopping military secrets from being smuggled out of the country. As he searches for the secret of "The 39 Steps" he is doggedly pursued by the police who believe he is a murderer.

Oedipus Rex

By Sophocles
Directed by Tracy Williams

Oedipus Rex is the greatest of the Greek tragedies. The story of the mythological king has resonated in world culture for almost 2,500 years.  Sophocles’ drama is much more than a great story—it remains a superb poetic script and exciting theatrical experience.

Guys and Dolls

Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser
Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows
Directed by Tracy Williams
Choreography by Dave Massey

Guys And Dolls is populated with gangsters and gamblers, missionary dolls and scantily clad showgirls, and one the great musical scores in the history of American theatre. It is a singing and dancing extravaganza that spans the gritty streets of mid 20th century New York City to the nightclubs and casinos of decadent Havana.

One of the funniest and melodious shows in seasons. Everything about it seems practically perfect.” --Variety

The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later

By Moisés Kaufman
Directed by Eric Bishop

On Oct. 6, 1998, Matthew Shepard was beaten and tied to a fence in the outskirts of Laramie, and left to die. He died six days later. "His torture and murder became a watershed historical moment in America that highlighted many of the fault lines in our culture," according to Tectonic. "A month after the murder the members of Tectonic Theater Project traveled to Laramie and conducted interviews with the people of the town." —including those close to the family of the victim and perpetrators—to try and understand why such a horrific hate crime could have occurred. The result was The Laramie Project, a jarring, heartrending play that interspersed dozens of those interviews with journal entries from Tectonic members.  

A decade passed and we return to Laramie to see what has changed — and what hasn’t.  Has Matthew's murder had a lasting impact on that community? How has the town changed as a result of this event? The results are surprising, life-altering and unforgettable!
"Laramie is a moving and honest drama that looks unflinchingly into an uncomfortable anniversary. It galvanizes a forgetful world, reminding us that the journey into the future begins only when we can fearlessly acknowledge the past. Highly Recommended." –Clint May, Chicago Critic
