THREE DAYS OF RAIN

by Richard Greenberg
Scott Alan Smith, Director

A famous architect dies, leaving his two children and their childhood friend the task of sorting out his mysterious will and making sense of their families' combined history—a job not made any easier by the discovery of a hidden journal. As the reunion turns increasingly tense, the three of them confront questions that have dogged them all their lives: questions of love, family, and, most important, what happened 35 years before, in that very apartment, during three days of rain. A 1998 Pulitzer Prize finalist.

LES MISÉRABLES

Cathy Thomas-Grant, Director
 

 Do you hear the people sing? Since its London debut in 1985, Les Misérables has become an international musical sensation. Still running on London's West End more than 27 years since its opening, the musical has also had two successful runs on Broadway, as well as dozens of international tours. We are excited to present one of the first college productions of Les Misérables. This musical has long been on Pepperdine's "most wanted" list, but the performance rights for colleges and universities only recently became available. Don't just "dream a dream" of getting tickets for Les Misérables. Order your tickets today, and then you can start counting down until it's just "one day more" to see this classic musical right here in Malibu!

NECESSARY TARGETS 

by Eve Ensler 
Marya Mazor, Director

In Necessary Targets, two American women—a Park Avenue psychiatrist and an ambitious young writer—travel to Bosnia to help women refugees confront their memories of war. They emerge deeply changed as they confront their own fears in the face of violence, resiliency, and war. Based on interviews conducted by Eve Ensler with numerous women who survived the civil war in the former Yugoslavia, Necessary Targets is a timely reminder of how America struggles to define its relationship to the rest of the world. Pepperdine Theatre performed this piece at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2006, but this is the first production of the play on the Malibu campus.

 A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM 

by William Shakespeare 

Jason Chanos, Director

When two young lovers—fleeing from Athenian law—are joined by a male rival, his female devotee, and a band of mismatched tradesmen as they take to the forest under the cloak of night, their lives become entangled with a feud between the King and Queen of the Fairies. This enchanting and original vision that interweaves desire, magic, farce, and the theme of transformation showcases Shakespeare at his best and is regarded as his most beloved comedy.
