Book & Lyrics by Lisa Kron

Music by Jeanine Tesori

This groundbreaking musical traces the coming-of-age of lesbian author Alison Bechdel, from her youth, to her college years, to the present, where she is struggling to write her own graphic autobiography. Adapted from Bechdel's memoir, the story follows Alison's discovery of her own sexuality, her relationship with her closeted gay father and her attempts to unlock the mysteries surrounding his life. The story explores the haunting pull of memory and the power it has to alternately destroy or shape our identity.

Sylvia

By A.R.Gurney

Greg and Kate are empty nesters living in Manhattan. Greg's career as a financial trader is winding down just as Kate's teaching career is taking off. After finding a dog (played by a human) in the park, Greg brings the street-smart "Sylvia" home. The animal visitor becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife as this odd love triangle ensues. It's a tale of hilarious and touching experiences with 'man's best friend.'

Performances: Feb 1- Feb 16

Auditions: Nov 26 & 27 at 7:00 p.m. at the Studio at the Depot
