Told through the story of a royal family embarking on an extravagant journey and set to the iconic music of the 1980s all-female band The Go-Go’s, it includes such hit songs as “We Got the Beat,” “Vacation,” and Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven is a Place on Earth.”
RANDY’S DANDY COASTER CASTLE
By Alexander Perez | Directed by Kathleen Capdesuner
Mar. 29 – Apr. 14 | Opening Night: Mar. 30
It’s always a great day at Randy’s…unless you work there! Randy’s Dandy is a darkly comedic play following the lives of five co-workers of a small, run down amusement park in the Florida Panhandle. The highs and lows of working at “Randy’s” are no joke, but it’s also too funny and too relatable not to break your heart and leave you laughing throughout. Randy’s Dandy explores class, capitalism, and the American dream through the colorful lens of a deeply flawed and human group of people.
THE DROLL (OR, A STAGE-PLAY ABOUT THE END OF THEATRE)
By Meg Miroshnik | Directed by Celia Madeoy
Apr. 19 – 28 | Opening Night: Apr. 20
In 2011, playwright Meg Miroshnik pondered the question, “What would it have been like to discover a passion for acting during the 18 years in which theater was illegal and considered an abomination in 17th-century Puritan England?” She also posed the question: “What is it like to fall in love with theater today in the face of anxieties about its future and future audiences?” This daring and darkly funny play celebrates our need to come together in the act of collective storytelling.
