Hedwig and the Angry Inch 

Jan 12 - 14 at the PNC Arts Annex

Directed by Ryan Scarlata

Hedwig, a gender-queer punk-rock singer from East Berlin, tells her life story as she tours the U.S. and tracks down her enemy and ex-lover, Tommy Gnosis, who abandoned her and stole her songs after a less than ideal, botched operation.

In the Green

Jan 19 - 21 at the PNC Arts Annex

Directed by Garrett Young

(Regional Premiere) Before she became a healer, a composer, an exorcist, and finally a saint, Hildegard von Bingen was a little girl locked in a cell. This new musical is the tale of two women and the journey that leads one to embrace death, and the other to celebrate the beauty and blemishes of a fully lived life.

Mar 9 - 18 at the PNC Arts Annex

Directed by Philip Drennen

In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America's greatest art forms.

The Secret Garden

May 12 - 13 at the Victoria Theatre

Directed by Becki Norgaard

When young Mary Lennox loses her parents to a cholera outbreak in India, she is sent to live with her uncle, hermit Archibald Craven, who lives in an imposing, secluded manor on the British heath. There, her personality blossoms among the other residents of the manor as they bring new life to a long-neglected garden.
