Lighthouse and wave painting

This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing

Directed by: Hollace Starr

Triplet sisters are left in the forest by their woodcutter father. From this fairytale beginning, three resolutions are made—one sister will walk one way, one the other, and the third will stay right where she is. Twenty years later, having circumnavigated the globe, fought vikings, crossed oceans, tamed wilds, and achieved greatness, the three meet again, as women.

Directed by: Nanci Ruby

Based on Charlotte Brontë’s  novel, Villette which takes place over the course of a few years in the early 1850’s, in the fictional city of Villette, capital of Labassecour, a fictionalized version of Belgium. Lucy Snow has lost everything and everyone she held dear. We are taken on her journey to open doors for herself in a time when women hold little value and garner minimal respect in society. Lucy weathers life’s storms and creates opportunities with her wit, intelligence, authenticity, and the will to stay true to herself.

Watercolor portrait of The Tempest

The Tempest

Directed by: Cathy Thomas-Grant

Known as Shakespeare’s masterpiece and the last play that he ever wrote, The Tempest tells the story of loss, restoration, injury and healing, fault and forgiveness. Set on an enchanted island, a magician and his lovely daughter live with a motherless cub of a wicked witch along with spirits of the air, water, earth, and wind. A shipwreck and mighty winds carry a king, his son, a duke, and all of their entourage onto shore. Separated by the storm, these wandering souls bring laughter, love, and ultimately the reconciliation of a family torn apart by a political rebellion.

Wednesday, April 3rd–Saturday, April 6th

Venue: Smothers Theatre
