Lyrics and dialogue make use of the original words of uncommon men and women, all of them American workers--including a parking lot attendant, corporate executive, newsboy, schoolteacher, gas man, housewife, fireman, waitress, millworker and a host of others–all of them singing passionately about their jobs, all of them inviting us to share not only their daily routines, but their most cherished hopes and profoundest dreams. The Importance of Being Earnest Oscar Wilde November 15, 16 & 17, 2001 at 8:00 p.m. November 18, 2001 at 2:00 p.m. 3 Special Students' Weekday Morning Performances: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday- November 13, 14 & 16, 2001 at 10:30 a.m. Two young gentleman of marriageable age create imaginary identities to give them respectable excuses for social escapades. Jack, residing in the country with his ward Cecily, escapes to town where he woos Gwendolyn under the name of Ernest. Algernon, who loves cucumber sandwiches almost as much as he does himself, then visits Jack’s country estate where he introduces himself as Ernest, capturing Cecily’s fancy. Gwendolyn’s mama, Lady Bracknell with her extraordinary knack for unexpected arrivals, creates even more complications in this timeless and effervescent comedy of manners. Twelfth Night William Shakespeare February 14, 15, 16, 21, 22 & 23, 2002 at 8:00 p.m. February 17 & 23, 2002 at 2:00 p.m. 3 Special Students' Weekday Morning Performances: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday- February 19, 20 and 22, 2002 at 10:30 a.m. A pair of twins are separated by shipwreck. Viola, in search of her brother disguises herself as the boy Cesario and enters the service of amorous Duke Orsino. On his behalf she woos the mourning Countess Olivia. The mission fails as Olivia proclaims her love, not for the Duke, but for his page. Meanwhile, Olivia’s egocentric steward Malvolio alienates her mischievous maid, her drunken uncle, and a cowardly knight by cutting short their noisy party. Their wild revenge in the form of a forged love letter, succeeds hilariously. Don’t miss this popular Shakespearean favorite full of mistaken identities, misdirected passions, high comedy, and devilishly low tricks. J.B. Archibald MacLeish April 18, 19 & 20, 2002 at 8:00 p.m. April 21, 2002 at 2:00 p.m. 3 Special Students'/Shoppers' Weekday Morning Performances: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, April 16, 17 & 19, 2002 at 10:30 a.m. The New York Times called this Pulitzer Prize winning American play an “exalting morality” and “one of the memorable works” of the 20th century “as verse, as drama and as spiritual inquiry.” Using the circus as a theatrically exciting environment, MacLeish probes the unanswered problems of man’s relationship to God in an era of cruel injustices. J.B. is the modern counterpart of the biblical Job. When he is reunited with his wife, two humbled but valiant people accept the universe and agree to begin life all over again.
