The Wild Party

Music and Lyrics by Michael John LaChiusa
Book by Michael John LaChiusa and George C. Wolfe
Based on the poem by Joesph Moncure March

November 20-December 5, 2015
Oscar G. Brockett Theatre

Set in 1920s Manhattan, vaudeville performer, Queenie, hosts an evening of excess for her guests; a collection of the unruly and undone. The jazz and gin-soaked party rages to a mounting sense of threat as artifice and illusion are stripped away. When midnight debauchery leads to tragedy at dawn, this dark and decadent musical reminds us that no party lasts forever.

Tomás and the Library Lady

Presented in co-production with ZACH Theatre

By José Cruz González
Based on the Book by Pat Mora

January 22 - February 19, 2016
Whisenhunt Stage

Tomás, a young son of migrant farm workers, spends the summer with his family following the crop north from Texas to Iowa, passing long days in the fields, listening to his grandfather tell stories and practicing English translations. A chance encounter brings him to the local Carnegie Library where he meets a "library lady" who recognizes his thirst for knowledge and encourages him to read. Based on the true story of Mexican-American author and educator, Tomás Rivera, this inspirational story suggests what reading -and self-respect- can make possible.

Single tickets for Tomás and the Library Lady are available through ZACH Theatre beginning August 3. Purchase tickets online or by phone at 512-576-0541 (ext. 1).
