The 2016/2017 ACTORS CO-OP Season:

David Schall Theatre
By Thornton Wilder
Directed by Richard Israel
September 16 - October 23, 2016

"Do human beings ever realize life while they live it -every, every minute?"

No curtain. No scenery. Arguably the most famous American play ever written, "Our Town" has entertained generations of audiences. As poignant today as it was in 1938, Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer-winning drama set in Grover's Corners is a timeless story about life, love and loss and appreciating every little thing.

Crossley Theatre
Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher from the Novel by Henry James
October 14 - November 20, 2016

"Do you believe in the unspeakable?"

A young governess is responsible for raising two young children in a remote English manor house. But she is not the first one - and what has happened to her predecessor? Hatcher's thrilling adaptation of the classic Henry James story uses just two actors to bring all the characters to life. The perfect ghost story to haunt your Halloween season!

David Schall Theatre
By Moisés Kaufman
Directed by Tom O'Lear
February 10 - March 19, 2017

The biggest challenge of her life is about to transform her world.

A mother coming to terms with her daughter. A composer coming to terms with his genius. And, even though they're separated by 200 years, these two people share an obsession that might, even just for a moment, make time stand still. Drama, memory and music combine to transport you from present-day New York to 19th-century Austria, in this extraordinary Tony-nominated play about passion, parenthood and the moments of beauty that can transform a life. For mature audiences.

Crossley Theatre
By William Mastrosimone
Directed by Steve Rothman
March 24 - April 30, 2017

What makes a good cause go bad?

Torn from today's headlines, what do you do when your enemy may be smarter than you? William Mastrosimone's gripping drama about a terrorist who has wreaked madness and destruction on America and is about to use a news reporter to exploit just one more valuable hostage - the world's supply of clean water. For mature audiences.
