Oct 31 @ 7:30 pm
Saint Mary's Theatre and Dance: The Knight of the Burning Pestle @ Page Theatre

With a modern day theatricality remarkably ahead of its time, this witty comic satire of theatre (and its audience) contains much revelry, popular song, and audience interaction! Shakespeare’s contemporary and sometime collaborator, Francis Beaumont, penned this crazy comedy around 1607. Rarely produced in America, The Knight of the Burning Pestle (pun intended), has seen a recent revival due to prominent productions by professional American Shakespeare companies. The company of actors performing The London Merchant are forced to recreate their production on the spot, indulging the whimsical impulses of their audience and enduring their constant interruptions while improvising alternate characters and adapting their romantic comedy into an action adventure parody! If Mel Brooks, Monty Python, Cervantes and Shakespeare had a theatrical love child, it would be this contemporary classical mashup!

Directed by Walter Elder, M.F.A.

Saint Mary's Theatre and Dance: 9 to 5 the Musical @ Page Theatre

Book by Patricia Resnick with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton

Based on the 1980 hit movie and set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can’t she? Directed by Judy Myers, M.F.A.
