One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Presented by barebones productions

Thu-Sat, April 21-May 7Wednesdays-Saturdays 8PM, Sundays 2PM

This essential document to 60’s counter culture explores the beauty and danger of being a free spirit in a closed system. Randle McMurphy charms his way onto a psych ward thinking it’s surely the easy way to serve out a six-month prison term. There he encounters Nurse Ratched, a disciplined and extremely focused agent of authority. Randle uses his charisma and humor to breathe life into the ward and lead the other patients into open rebellion. But McMurphy’s revolution against Nurse Ratched and everything she stands for quickly turns from sport to a fierce power struggle—with shattering results.

Directed by Melissa Martin

Featuring: Kimberly Parker Green, Patrick Jordan, Nick Lehane, Randy Kovitz, Leandro Cano, Mark Tierno, Michael Sullivan, John Gresh, Dave Mansueto, Dereck Walton, Billy Jenkins, Reese Redwood, Wali Jamal, Erika Strasburg, and Magan Yantko.

memory 4

Part of the CSA Performance Series

Thursday, June 98PM

Advanced Tickets $20
At the Door $25

“I am what I remember…what I remember, is what I am.”  memory 4 follows performers through a landscape of seemingly insurmountable tasks, spiraling to ascension. Throughout the ritual, memory decays and is redefined in each passing moment.  We begin to see memory as a place one can enter to re-experience and reflect, to move forward or retreat.

Floyd Collins

Presented by Front Porch Theatricals

Fri-Sun, August 26-28Friday - 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.
