2023 “Resilience” Season

We are resilient.

It’s our ability to listen to each other, and to hear, to laugh, to love, to wonder, and to uproot the simplicity, the reactionary, the binary, and the tribal. This is what makes us human. This is what makes us resilient.

Our offerings for 2023 lean on this resilience and offer some subtle reminders as to how we can be human. There are more comedies and musicals this season than we’ve ever programmed before! Let the laughter and joy we bring to the stage guide us too. How can we feel more? Think more? Play more? How can we judge each other less?

I can’t wait to see you in the theater.

Get your deerstalker cap on — the play’s afoot! The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one, and Sherlock Holmes is on the case. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Watch as our intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than forty characters. Can our heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.

Building Madness

Max and Paul are just trying to keep their architecture company afloat, but they accidentally hired the mob to build a police retirement home. They may never get the project done in this screwball comedy, but they are most definitely building madness. If you love those great old comedies from Hollywood’s Golden Era of the 1930s, you will love this!

May 5 - 27 - State Theater

Hundred Days

Join us as we transform The State Theater into a nightclub for an uncensored, exhilarating, and heartrending true story about embracing uncertainty, taking a leap, and loving as if you only had 100 days to live. With magnetic chemistry and anthemic folk-punk music, creators Abigail and Shaun Bengson explore a fundamental question: how do we make the most of the time that we have? Featuring local artist Amy Shephard and local band Sugar and the Spitfires.

June 30 - July 22 - State Theater


Hilarious, heartbreaking, and utterly unique, Falsettos revolves around the life of a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin, his wife, lover, about- to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. It’s a hilarious and achingly poignant look at the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family... and a beautiful reminder that love can tell a million stories. 

September 8 - 23 - STATE THEATER

The Revolutionists

A new play about four very real women who lived boldly in France during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe De Gouge, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, lose their heads and try to beat back the extremist insanity in the Paris of 1793. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection...that ends in a song and a scaffold.

October 13 - 28 - Minnaert Center Black Box

Every Brilliant Thing

Join us in the very intimate Minnaert Center Black Box for a theatrical evening like none you’ve ever experienced before. The color yellow. Sunsets. Things with stripes. Wearing a cape. Ice cream! There are a million brilliant things. Can you name them all? The hit play and international sensation Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe is a one-of-a-kind storytelling experience blending comedy with improv to tell the story of an adult learning to grapple with their own experiences of love, loss, and finding a new way forward, one brilliant thing at a time. Starring local artist Eleise Moore.

November 24 - December 24, 2023
