Late Fall and Early Spring Events

February 13-15, 8 p.m.
The Boy Detective Fails
Young Billy Argo is a miraculous boy detective in the great tradition of the Hardy Boys and Encyclopedia Brown. With the able assistance of his sister and his best friend, Billy can solve any crime that comes his way—except for the most challenging and disturbing puzzle of all. This unique and remarkable musical is by turns hilarious, hopeful, troubling, and deeply moving.
March 26-28, 2 p.m.
The Birds by Aristophanes
First performed in the spring of 414 BC, the story is simple and timeless—humans frustrated with life on earth seek a utopia. They find it in the trees with the birds. And then things get messy and complicated. With a distinct contemporary Greek influence, this production includes songs, dances, the building of an aerial city, fights, flights, marriage, an eventual usurpation, and more.
April 17-18, 8 p.m.
