•  "Musical! The Bard is Back!" - As any theater aficionado knows, it is considered "bad luck" to speak the name of Shakespeare's "Scottish Play" while inside a theater. Those who are foolish enough to do so are "cursed" in their production. When the students of a small high school decide to present a musical version of "Romeo and Juliet," the director chosen for them by the school's principal is convinced that the curse that struck her high school production of "Macbeth" still lingers on. Sure enough, everything goes wrong. The set for the balcony scene collapses, Juliet breaks her leg, her replacement develops laryngitis, and the semi-deaf costumer arrives with cowboy outfits because she thought the show was called "Rodeo and Lariat. Packed full of laughs, songs and dances, this is a show for audiences of all ages.

"Musical! The Bard is Back!" opens with a 1:00 PM matinee on Saturday, October 4, and will run through November 1, with matinees every Saturday at 1:00 and Sunday evening performances at 6:30 PM on October 5, 12, and 19.
