    Macbeth

    October 4th – 7th | Gaede Stage | Buy Tickets Online
    William Shakespeare's Macbeth is a tragedy about power, ambition, deceit, and murder—all the things we hold dear. Witches foretell Macbeth's rise to King of Scotland, but also proclaim that future kings will descend from another. Prodded by his ambitious wife, Lady Macbeth, he attempts to defy the prophesy.

    “Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time . . . “

     

    The Wizard of Oz

    November 8th – November 20th | Hansen Theatre
    When Dorothy drops into the Land of Oz, only one thing is certain: she's got to find a way back to Kansas. This play version is a funny and fast-paced journey down the yellow brick road, as Dorothy and her new friends travel to the fabled Emerald City to meet the Great Oz.

    “Toto! Toto, we’re back. I’m home! I’m back from Oz!”

     

    5 Women Wearing the Same Dress

    February 21st – 24th | Gaede Stage
    During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below.

    “An irreverent and funny look at the intricacies of friendship and the power of similar dressing. "…[a] wonderfully entertaining play…" —NY Post

     

    The Who’s Tommy

    April 4th – 7th | Gaede Stage
    A deaf, dumb and blind boy's journey from pain to triumph is a sensory-defying rock and roll experience. Based on the iconic 1969 rock concept album, The Who's Tommy is an exhilarating story of hope, healing, and the human spirit.

    “See me, feel me. Touch, heal me.”
