Description: A comedic valentine to the theater For the Cavendishes, the "Royal Family" of Broadway, the show must go on. Set in 1920s Manhattan, this American classic (loosely based on the legendary Barrymore family) centers on three generations of actors, each at different stages in their careers. From an aging grande dame to a promising ingénue, together they confront a choice between secure, yet dull domesticity and an erratic, egocentric yet potentially fulfilling life on the stage. A brilliant, fast-paced comedy, The Royal Family is a masterfully written love letter to the Great White Way.

Description: Three lifelong friends take on management, the union, and ultimately each other when a strike wreaks havoc on their working-class town. Along the way they have to negotiate mobs of angry first-graders, bat-wielding bartenders, no-neck corporate shills, and the North American Free Trade Agreement. Lines are drawn, crossed, and double-crossed in this raw, powerful and often hilarious story about loyalty, love and the crippling power of unbending principles. New York playwright Joe Roland will be in residency at NHCC during the rehearsal process to workshop and adapt the play with the cast and crew, and to moderate talk backs after all performances.

Description: What happens when classical education collides with contemporary controversies? When college senior, Judy Miller, tries to submit her own contemporized version of Antigone instead of the assigned formal paper on Greek tragedy, her professor, Henry Harper, refuses to accept it. As both become entrenched in their positions, issues of academic freedom, bigotry, entitlement, money, institutional power, and politics are all unearthed. Can these contemporary versions of Creon and Antigone avoid the fates of their classical counterparts? By A.R. Gurney

Description: On Sneetch Beach, there’s a line in the sand—Star Bellies on one side, Plain Bellies on the other. That’s the way it is, was and will be. At least until the sneaky and greedy Sylvester Monkey McBean comes to town with his Star On machine. Suddenly, the difference between the haves and the have nots—those with stars and those without—isn’t so clear. What will the Sneetches do now? In this rousing and inventive musical adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ powerful parable about the surface things that divide us, it will take a courageous friendship between an unlikely pair of Sneetches to find the answers. This work is supported by a Theatre Commissioning and Production Initiative grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

Description:We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915 Going off-script can sometimes be the best way to tell a story. We Are Proud to Present follows an ensemble of American actors -- three black and three white – as they rehearse a stage presentation about a genocide in 1900s colonial Africa. Questions arise when they realize that summarizing the event doesn’t do justice to the people it affected, and while they struggle to understand both sides, they make connections between the past they are portraying and the issues confronting them in the present. Equal parts comedy and drama, We Are Proud to Present sparks powerful conversations about race, nationality, ethics, exploitation and sovereignty, while exposing the issues both in humorous moments of failed communication and striking moments with haunting artistic discoveries. Part of the Level Nine Series, devoted to community dialogue about today’s most significant topics and questions.

Description: "Oh, the thinks you can think" when Dr. Seuss' best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper! Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
