2022-2023 Mainstage Season, Fall semester
- Pride and Prejudice by Kate Hamill, based on the novel by Jane Austen, directed by Laura Smiley.
"This isn’t your grandmother’s Austen! Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this P&P for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life. The outspoken Lizzy Bennet is determined to never marry, despite mounting pressure from society. But can she resist love, especially when that vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aggravating Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?! Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life than it does in this effervescent adaptation. Because what turns us into greater fools…than the high-stakes game of love?" (Dramatists Play Service)
Performances of Pride and Prejudice will be October 14-15, and 18-20 at 7:30pm and October 16 at 2pm in the Stoner Black Box Theater. Tickets will be available at www.sru.edu/tickets.
- Head Over Heels by James Magruder and Jeff Whitty, Songs by the Go-Go's, directed by David Skeele.
HEAD OVER HEELS is the bold new musical comedy from the visionaries that rocked Broadway with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Avenue Q and Spring Awakening. This laugh-out-loud love story is set to the music of the iconic 1980’s all-female rock band The Go-Go’s, including the hit songs, “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Vacation,” Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven is a Place on Earth” and “Mad About You.”
A hilarious, exuberant celebration of love, HEAD OVER HEELS follows the escapades of a royal family on an outrageous journey to save their beloved kingdom from extinction—only to discover the key to their realm’s survival lies within each of their own hearts. (Broadway Licensing)
Performances of Head Over Heels will be November 17-19, and 21 at 7:30pm and November 20 at 2pm in the Performing Arts Center Miller Theater. Tickets will be available at www.sru.edu/tickets.
