ALICE  by LIndsay Price. Directed by CVU seniors Julia Shrier, Nisha Hickock, and Veronica Miskavage.  In this One Act adaptation of the classic story by Lewis Carroll, Alice follows the White Rabbit down a hole and stumbles through several iconic scenes in Wonderland, from the room of doors to the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and the Queen’s flamingo croquet game. Along the way, she encounters the Cheshire cat (who is split in three), the Caterpillar on its mushroom, a Pigeon on its nest, and Card Soldiers, before her adventure culminates in a trial before the Queen and King of Hearts themselves.

ANTIGONE NOW  by Melissa Cooper.  Directed by CVU seniors Xander  Olszewski and Lynne Lynne.  After the death of her father, Antigone’s city has plunged into a terrible and brutal civil war, her brothers end up dead and her uncle settles in as king, leaving Antigone and her sister alone and scared in the world. Antigone goes against the King’s law in order to follow the rules of the gods and suffers the ultimate consequence for doing what she feels is right.

BLACK COMEDY  by Peter Shaffer.  Directed by CVU seniors Frankie Fidler and Addie Nevitt.  A world renowned billionaire is coming to look at the work of the aspiring artist Brindsley Miller. To impress him and the strict, military oriented father of his fiancee Carol Melkett, he has temporarily borrowed (without asking) the beloved furniture of his friend and neighbor Harold Gorringe. But all hell breaks loose when the lights go out, Harold comes back early from vacation, and the ghosts of Brindsley’s past come back to haunt him. In this farcical comedy, the audience gets a clear look at the inner workings of a pleasant evening turned disaster, where light is dark, and darkness is light.
