Hamlet

By William Shakespeare

Ghosts. Castles. Swordfights. Murder. Poison. Love. Betrayal. Madness...and some of the most famous lines ever written. As entertaining today as it was 400 years ago, William Shakespeare's timeless tragedy– in a powerful,eye-popping production marking Spreckels’ first-ever mounting of Shakespeare – will once again prove Hamlet to be one of the greatest works of drama in the English language. With acclaimed Bay Area actor Keith Baker in the title role, this expansive, yet heartbreakingly intimate production shines a light on Hamlet’s age-old question of life, loss, and struggle … to be or not to be?

Barbecue Apocalypse

By Matt Lyle 

Three couples gather on the back deck of a modest suburban home for a midsummer barbecue where the hosts, Mike and Deb, struggle with feelings of inadequacy about their decor, their clothes, their careers, their culinary skills, and pretty much everything else. The superficial, neuroses-laden squabbles abound until the group discovers the rest of the world has been falling apart…. literally...during their barbecue. For these complacent suburbanites, the end is just the beginning.

"A good comedy makes you laugh, a really good one makes you think. Barbeque Apocalypse is a really good one”—Dallas Morning News.

“Lyle has carved out a unique niche, midway between Eugene O’Neill and Eugene Levy”—Dallas Voice.

Directed by Larry Williams

Rogers and Hammerstein's

Cinderella

Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein
Music by Richard Rodgers
Additional material by Douglas Carter Beane

The first known instance of a “Cinderella story” appeared more than 2,000 years ago in 7 B.C. What makes this a story for the ages? It is a tale that celebrates everything we love and value: hard work, modesty, generosity, bravery, kindness and last, but certainly not least, the firm belief that something better...

something wonderful…

something impossible

is possible for us all.

This is the new, updated version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic in which Cinderella and Prince Topher meet as intellectual, if not social, equals. There are new songs, new subplots, new characters. But all the original favorites are still there: Impossible, Ten Minutes Ago, Stepsister’s Lament, A Lovely Night...and more!
