Eureka Day

North Bay Premiere

At Eureka Day School, a progressive charter school in Berkeley, all points of view are respected, all voices heard. After all, these parents only want the best for their kids. When the issue of vaccinations breaks out like a bad case of chicken pox, however, tolerance for opposing views undergoes a stress test that is both hilarious and harrowing. Launched last year, the play had the Bay Area bussing, with the San Francisco Chronicle declaring that playwright Spector" proves as much a master of pathos as of comedy."

A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder

North Bay Premiere

Gallows humor at its best, this musical comedy convulsed Broadway in 2014, winning four Tonys, including Best Musical and Best Book. Based on the 1907 novel “The Autobiography of a Criminal,” by Roy Horniman, A Gentleman’s Guide tells the tale of impoverished Monty, who learns at his dying mother’s bedside that, far from being a street urchin, he is ninth in line to be the Earl of Highhurst, with all the wealth and power that entails. Well, that’s a lot of people to eliminate —but he will give it his best. And that’s just Act One. When the show debuted, the New York Times called it "ingenious" and "among the most inspired and entertaining new musicals.”

Miss Bennet Christmas at Pemberley

Sonoma County Premiere

By Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon

Inspired by Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, this sequel from 2016 asks the intriguing question. "What about Mary?"  The classic novel from 1813 ends with everyone married except the plain, arrogant, piano-playing middle daughter. It is two years later and Darcy and Elizabeth are hosting the whole family at Pemberley for Christmas. Mary has become a more appealing woman-but appealing to whom? Surely not Darcy's bumbling cousin Arthur! The playwrights concoct an Austen-like Chrismas treat that stands alone, delighting audiences of all ages.

Urinetown The Musical

Music by Mark Hollmann, lyrics by Hollmann and Greg Kotis, book by Kotis

In response to a severe water shortage, private toilets have been banned, pay-to-pee public ones are owned by the Urine Good Company, and vioilators are sent to Urinetown, a mythical penal colony from which they never return. But the spirit of pee-for-free rebellion is afoot. This satiric musical comedy created a spash in 2002, grabbing ten Tony nominations and winning for Best Book for a Musical and Best Original Score. It takes aim at the justice system, capitalism, bureaucracy, politics-and pubic toilets. Think Bertolt Brecht meets Beavis & Butthead. Prepare to laugh until you...

Galatea

World Premiere

By David Templeton

It's 2167, and high above the Earth orbits a vast transport where robot-specialist Dr. Margaret Mailer conducts sessions with Galatea 71, a member of a synthetic support crew once assigned to the deep space research vessel, Galatea. A hundred years ago, the ship disappeared with more than a thousand human passengers on board. Now rescued from an ancient escape shuttle after years of floating in deep cryogenic sleep, 71 engages with Dr. Mailer in a series of exercises designed to improve her social skills.

As she learns what it means to shake hands, make friends, tell jokes and laugh, it becomes clear that 71 is guarding more than a few secrets. Meanwhile, Mailer seeks the answers to a number of potentially world-changing questons including what exactly, happened on the Galatea?

Matilda the Musical

North Bay Premiere

Adapted by Dennis Kelly from Matilda, a novel by Roald Dahl, with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin

As horrible as the Wormwoods are, their daughter Matilda, age 5, must face someone even worse at school-the headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, and her "chokey." British writer Roald Dahl, master of macabre children's books, must have had a few scores to settle when he published Matilda in 1988. Fortunately, he gave Matilda a fine mind, a fertile imagination and a secret power. Matilda the Musical roared to life in 2012, winning seven Oliviers in London before crossing to Broadway and scoring five Tonys, including Best Book for a Musical. The New York Times called it "the most satisfying and subversive musical ever to come out of Britain."
