    In 1950s Baltimore, the conservative squares face off against the leather-clad delinquents in this rockabilly musical based on John Waters’ cult film.

  • One Christmas Eve at Evergreen Mall

    One Christmas Eve at Evergreen Mall follows eight intertwined stories in a Midwestern mall on the last day of shopping before the holiday. A diverse cast of characters — from a lovesick mall Santa to an overeager mall cop, from a pair of brainy misfit teenagers to a pair of battling actors in a production of A Christmas Carol, from a petulant college freshman to a pair of newlyweds — navigate first meetings, second chances and last-minute choices. One Christmas Eve wraps the joys and sorrows of the season into one festive package.

     

    One Christmas Eve at Evergreen Mall runs December 2-4, with Friday and Saturday performances at 8 p.m. and Sunday’s performance at 2:30 p.m.

  • Ripcord

    A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the old women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden.

     

    Ripcord by David Lindsay-Abaire runs January 20 to February 5, with Friday and Saturday performances at 8 p.m. and Sunday performances at 2:30 p.m.

  • The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

    In 1930s Chicago, mobster Arturo Ui will stop at nothing to control the cauliflower trade. Terror and bloodshed follow. Can anyone stop him?

     

    A dizzyingly intelligent political satire on the (ir)resistibleness of political thuggery, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui by German playwright Bertolt Brecht satirizes the rise of Hitler in Nazi Germany by dressing it up as “the gangster film” we thought we knew. In Arturo Ui, the metamorphosis of thug-to-politician through corruption, intimidation and all manner of brutality is thinly masked by a Chicago gangland epic wherein the young Arturo Ui stages a violent takeover of the green-grocer trade.

     

    The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui runs March 17 to April 2, with Friday and Saturday performances at 8 p.m. and Sunday performances at 2:30 p.m.
