Jan. 13-Feb. 10 ? Segerstrom Stage

Shakespeare in Love

based on the screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard

adapted for the stage by Lee Hall

music by Paddy Cunneen

directed by Marc Masterson

Young Will Shakespeare is desperate. He has writer's block and owes two demanding producers a new comedy-a half-baked mess titled Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate's Daughter. Enter his inspiration: Viola. Smart, beautiful and Will's greatest admirer, she will stop at nothing-including breaking the law-to be in his play. As their love blossoms, so does his greatest masterpiece. Mistaken identities, ruthless scheming, and backstage theatrics make this romantic feast "a joyous celebration of theatre" (Daily Telegraph).

Showtimes: Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, Saturday at 8 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. There are no matinee performances on Jan. 13 and Jan. 14.

March 2018

March 4-25 ? Julianne Argyros Stage

Cambodian Rock Band

by Lauren Yee

music by Dengue Fever

directed by Chay Yew

World Premiere

Part comedy, part mystery, part rock concert, this thrilling story toggles back and forth in time, as father and daughter face the music of the past. Neary, a young Cambodian American has found evidence that could finally put away the Khmer Rouge's chief henchman. But her work is far from done. When Dad shows up unannounced-his first return to Cambodia since fleeing 30 years ago-it's clear this isn't just a pleasure trip.

Dates: Low-priced previews: March 4-8; regular performances: March 10-25.

Showtimes: Tuesday-Sunday evenings at 7:45 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. There are no evening performances on Sunday, March 4 and Sunday, March 25.

March 24-April 21 ? Segerstrom Stage

SHREW!

by Amy Freed

directed by Art Manke

World Premiere

In Shakespeare's battle of the sexes, The Taming of the Shrew, Petruchio wins. But, what if a 16th-century woman had written it? In Amy Freed's clever and wickedly funny spin on the classic, Kate triumphs, too. When her unstoppable force meets his immovable object (or is it the other way around?), the impact is red-hot and, oh, so sexy! From the author of The Beard of Avon comes a love story for our time.

Dates: Low-priced previews: March 24-29; regular performances: March 31-April 21.

Showtimes: Sunday-Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. There are no matinee performances on March 24 and March 25.

April 8-29 ? Julianne Argyros Stage

Little Black Shadows

by Kemp Powers

directed by May Adrales

World Premiere

"We is shadows. And shadows is seen, not heard." In pre-Civil war Georgia, Toy and Colis spend long days on the plantation silently serving adolescent twins Mittie and Daniel. But in the dead of night their world comes alive, as they lie beneath their masters' beds whispering stories to each other through a vent in the wall. When Father announces the family is moving to Louisiana, the children face uncertain futures. Do they dare come out of The Shadows? A compelling testament to the power of the human spirit from one of America's most promising playwrights.

Showtimes: Tuesday-Sunday evenings at 7:45 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. There are no evening performances on Sunday, April 8, and Sunday, April 29.
