"Two Gentlemen of Verona"
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Gilbert Gonzalez

In the Robinson Theatre.

The Two Gentlemen of Verona is a comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1589 and 1593. It is considered by some to be Shakespeare's first play, and is often seen as showing his first tentative steps in laying out some of the themes and motifs with which he would later deal in more detail; for example, it is the first of his plays in which a heroine dresses as a boy.

The Hawaiian word waipuna, translates into “spring water”, an essential resource for supporting life, the very definition of wealth. Just like the refreshing spring water that continually bubbles forth from the ground, the Hawaiian music group, Waipuna, who burst upon the music scene in 2008, has sustained a steady pulse of creative energy.

Internationally-acclaimed acoustic trad power-trio from Sweden

“I have two favorite bands. Radiohead… and Väsen.” – Chris Thile

Three musicians with a singular sound, a playful yet accomplished interplay that seems to defy the laws of physics, an intensity with a great sense of humor, and modernity rooted in tradition. Väsen, a Swedish acoustic trio, now in its 30th year of touring together. The parts: a five-string viola of sophisticated symphonic taste, an adventurous 12-string guitar, and a nyckelharpa (a “keyed fiddle”). All three are instrumental virtuosos in their own right, and together they form a unique supernatural being. To experience Väsen is to witness ensemble playing at its finest

Sierra Hull

"Hull's arrangements and playing feel nimble and capricious, animating her introspection with fine-grained melodic details and pinprick exactness."

Sierra Hull’s positively stellar career started early. That is, if you consider a Grand Ole Opry debut at age 10 to be early. She played the Kennedy Center at 16 and the next year became the first bluegrass musician to receive a Presidential Scholarship at the Berklee College of Music and played the White House at 20 years old.

She is frequently guesting with friends and legends, joining such icons as the Indigo Girls, Garth Brooks, and Gillian Welch, and performing at the Country Music Awards with Skaggs, Brad Paisley, and Marty Stuart.

"The Wolves"
by Sarah Delappe
Directed by Katie Liddicoat

In the Studio Theatre.

The Wolves is set in an indoor soccer facility. Each scene depicts the nine teenage girls who make up the Wolves, a soccer team, warming up before their game each week.

In every scene, the girls are going through a stretching routine led by #25. This is one of the only repetitive actions, besides #7’s constant use of the word “f**k” and the goalie, #00, suffering from social anxiety attacks and consequently running outside to vomit. The girls sometimes continue their gossip from the previous week, bringing new drama and topics of conversation. #46 slowly begins to fit in and most girls seem to grow more comfortable with each other as the season progresses.
