June 10-26, 2016
Race and real estate collide in this outrageously funny and provocative Pulitzer Prize and Tony-winning new play. A spinoff of Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, CLYBOURNE PARK explodes in two acts set fifty years apart. The first act is set in a white 1959 Chicago neighborhood where the community splinters over the black family about to move in. Act II fast-forwards to 2009 when the same community, now a mostly black neighborhood, splinters over a white family's renovation plans for the now historic home. Contains adult themes and strong language.

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s OKLAHOMA!
November 4-20, 2016
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s masterpiece OKLAHOMA! is set in the frontier days of the old West, providing a colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. This beautiful and dramatic show features a score filled with landmark songs such as “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’,” “People Will Say We’re in Love,” and of course, “Oklahoma!”
