Floyd Collins

Presented by Front Porch Theatricals

Fri-Sun, August 26-September 4Friday - Saturday 8PM, Sunday 2PM

Based on the true story.  In 1925, while chasing a dream of fame and fortune by turning a Kentucky cave into a tourist attraction, Floyd Collins himself becomes the attraction when he gets trapped 200 feet underground.  Alone but for sporadic contact with the outside world, Floyd fights for his sanity and ultimately his life as the rescue effort above explodes into America’s first genuine media circus.

This haunting musical boasts a distinguished score as memorable as it is engaging, as it tells the transcendent tale of a true American dreamer.

CORNINGWORKS remains – A One Woman Show

Presented by CORNINGWORKS and The New Hazlett Theater

Wed-Sun, September 7-11Wednesday 7PM, Thursday, Friday, Saturday 8PM, Sunday Matinee 2PM

“If you can’t get rid of the family skeleton,  you might as well make it dance.” – George Bernard Shaw

REMAINS is full of imagination and pathos.  Half-filled wine glasses, a loved one’s scent left behind in a coat, discovered messages, the memory of family dinners past.  Through projected and spoken text, physical acuity, and imaginative theater techniques, this multi-disciplinary, layered dancetheater work journeys through tangible and provocative imagery. REMAINS touches upon universal emotional and tells its story with poignant humor, honesty, and nuance.

In 2013, REMAINS was critically hailed as “a tour de force.” CORNINGWORKS has enriched the original with additional moves, scenery, lighting, and costumes.

Choreographed and performed by Beth Corning and created in collaboration with and directed by, Tony Award-winning Dominique Serrand.  Costumes by Sonya Berlovitz.  Lighting by Iain Court with a set design by Britton Mauk.

Cole Hoyer-Winfield’s Midnight in Molina

Part of the CSA Performance Series

Thursday, October 208PM

Life is made up of cycles: Days and nights replay, our mistakes repeat, and plants grow and die outside in the garden. It’s the same story just about anywhere you go, unless that is, you’re in Molina and midnight is drawing near…

Through hand-drawn projections, shadow puppetry, and live music, Midnight in Molina transports viewers to a mystical realm where the earth unravels and dreams come to life — a moonlit town where nothing is what it seems.

Cole Hoyer-Winfield

Cole is a graphic artist and storyteller. His work explores folklore, visual language, and narrative traditions from different cultures and how to transform them into new experiences for audiences around the world.

Drs. Tameka Cage Conley and Jason Mendez’s Redemption Sons

Part of the CSA Performance Series

Thursday, December 88PM

Redemption Sons is hope.  It is change.  It is a parent’s soul split in two and fused back together again.  An African American mother from Louisiana and a Boricua father from the South Bronx engage in an experimental call and response “duologue” as they weave a story of memory, healing, and empowerment.

Tameka Cage Conley, PhD, and Jason Mendez, PhD

Tameka has been published in numerous journals, and has a special online feature of the Southeast Review in response to the Ferguson protests.

Jason is an educator, author, interdisciplinary theater artist, and father of three. As a South Bronx Puerto Rican writer focusing on lived experience, notions of home, and the power of voice, Jason embodies a voice that has been historically silenced and rendered invisible.
