ADMISSIONS by Joshua Harmon
Michigan Premiere

Bill and Sherri are white, progressive and proud. Respectively the headmaster and dean of admissions of a New Hampshire boarding school, they’ve dedicated their 15-year tenure to diversifying the school’s mostly white population. But when their high-achieving son’s Ivy League dreams are crushed, the family’s reaction betrays a schism between their public values and their private aspirations. An incisively funny look at privilege, power, and the perils of whiteness.
Directed by David Wolber.  Featuring Joe Bailey (The Legend of Georgia McBride), Sarah Burcon (Mrs Fifty Bakes a Pie), Diane Hill (The How and the Why, The Stone Witch, The Totalitarians, and The Revolutionists), Jeremy Kucharek, and Cynthia Szczesny.

September 20 - October 13, 2019     (Single tickets: $22)

FOLLIES IN CONCERT by Stephen Sondheim & James Goldman
Theatre NOVA Fundraiser

Sondheim's Broadway smash hit musical concerns a reunion in a crumbling Broadway theatre of the past performers of the "Weismann's Follies" that played in that theatre between the World Wars. A fundraiser for Theatre NOVA and presented in concert, Follies is a glamorous and fascinating peek into a bygone era, and a clear-eyed look at the transformation of relationships over time, with countless songs that have become standards, including "Broadway Baby", "I'm Still Here", "Too Many Mornings", "Could I Leave You?" and "Losing My Mind."  Directed by Diane Hill. Music Direction by Brian E. Buckner. LIMITED ENGAGEMENT 

November 7 - 17, 2019          (Single tickets: $30)

Only one flex ticket per pass may be applied to Follies in Concert.

GOD KINDA LOOKS LIKE TUPAC by Emilio Rodriguez
World Premiere

When a young black high school student creates an unconventional portrait of God for a student art exhibition, her white and Latina teachers must decide whether to encourage her provocative approach or convince her to choose a more traditional path. But is it her expression that needs rethinking– or those that want her to assimilate? A fresh and funny exploration of political correctness and societal expectations that turns code-switching upside down. Directed by David Wolber.
