Animal Farm

Tuesday APR 30/2019 7:30
Mosesian Center for the Arts MainStage Theater

The animals of Mr. Jones’ farm believe they could build themselves a utopia, if only they could get rid of the humans in charge. When their dreams become reality, life isn’t as easy as they thought, as old problems take a new form. Originally written as a critique of Stalinism, George Orwell’s acclaimed 1945 novel finds new life in this contemporary stage adaptation. Exploring themes of power, politics, and propaganda, this frightening fairytale feels ripped from the headlines.

 

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Mosesian Center for the Arts MainStage Theater

“The course of true love never did run smooth.” Love, in all its forms, is at the center of Shakespeare’s most magical play. In the forest outside of Athens, mishaps abound and hilarity ensues as young lovers, mischievous fairies and the forces of nature collide. This wacky, whimsical, and youthful production features live music and a contemporary twist. Eight actors take on multiple roles, as the lines between worlds, characters, actors and audience begin to blur.
