Way back in 2009, we set a goal for our 5th season: Goethe's Faust. We didn't know yet how, but we knew the story. We knew the idea: One very smart man decides to sell his soul to the devil in search of happiness here on earth.This past fall, we began to devise our own version of the classic story. After close to a year, we are beyond excited to share it with you this August!
When one ensemble sets out to devise their own version of Goethe's Faust, the lines quickly blur between their lives and their performance.
The production features an ensemble including: NAT CASSIDY, MATTHEW TRUMBULL, GABBY SHERBA, EMILY HARTFORD, RACHAEL HIP FLORES, ALEX ENGQUIST, MATILDE KEIZER, and REBECCA DAVIS
The production team includes TD/Lighting designer OLIVIA HARRIS, stage manager AMY REHWALDT, and choreography EMILY HARTFORD.
