2023/24 Center Stage Season

Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike

APR 12, 13 & 18 - 20, 2024 / 7:30 PM
APR 14 & 21, 2024 / 2 PM


Three Siblings. One Hot Mess. Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia bicker and complain about life in their Bucks County farmhouse. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up. Thus begins an unforgettable family reunion filled with rivalry, regret, and all-too-true premonitions from a clairvoyant housekeeper. Will Vanya and Sonia ever find happiness? Will Masha sell the house out from under them? Will Spike ever put his pants on? This irresistible comedy of remorse and sibling rivalry is a wickedly wonderful mash-up of Chekhov’s famous ennui and modern-day concerns of celebrity, social networking, and age, resulting in a hilarious laugh-out-loud comedy! “Deliriously funny!” – The New York Times

Next to Normal

MAY 17, 18, 24, 25, 2024 / 7:30 PM
MAY 19 & 26, 2024 / 2 PM

An emotional powerhouse of a musical with a thrilling rock score, NEXT TO NORMAL takes an honest look at the sometimes harsh realities of life. A typical family to the outside world, the Goodmans secretly struggle in their suburban home as they deal with the unpredictability of their mother’s worsening mental health. As they navigate their changing world, they deal with the pressing contemporary issues of trauma, loss, mental health treatment, and what it means to be “normal.” This raw, exhilarating, and deeply moving musical about the realities of the modern American family asks us to examine how we love and care for ourselves and each other.

Music by Tom Kitt
