- SONNETS FOR AN OLD CENTURY by José Rivera
- Mitchell Theatre April 15-25 (Thursday-Saturday 7:30 PM, Sunday 2:00 PM)
- Director: Mark H.
- Could you tell your life story in the space of a moment – the length of a sonnet? Trapped between life and afterlife, people attempt to give voice to the meaning of their existence. Called a Spoon River Anthology and Our Town for this generation, José Rivera’s compelling series of monologues convey a kaleidoscope of expressions on what it means to be alive.
- The ensemble includes: Josie Brandmeier, Allison Hesselberg, Summer Kleppek, Libby LaDue, Krista Laszewski, Liam McCarthy, Jakob Paquette, Bryanna Plaisir, Kyla Pollard, Dawry Ruiz, and Rae Wasson.
Content Warning: This production contains mature language and content including descriptions of violence and adult sexuality (no sexual acts are depicted). Strobe lighting effects and a gunshot sound effect are used in the performance.

- WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT by Nassim Soleimanpour
- Mitchell Theatre February 18-March 6 (Thu-Fri 7:30 PM, Sat 6:00 PM and 8:30 PM)
- No rehearsal. No director. A different actor each night. A script waiting in a sealed envelope on stage. Performed all over the world since its premiere in 2011, “White Rabbit, Red Rabbit” by Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour, is an audacious theatrical experiment and a potent reminder of the power of theatre to break boundaries and connect us all.
- Content Warning: This production contains mature language and discussion of suicide.
- Performers are Ashley Alberte, Reez Bailey, Allison Hesselberg, Summer Kleppek, Libby LaDue, Krista Laszewski, Malcolm McCanles, Ethan Nimmer, Jared Paullin, Bryanna Plaisir, Emilie Springsteen, and Tia Vasen.
