Billy and George, by Daryl L. Harris and Ken Jones and directed by Producing Partner DeMone Seraphin is a world premiere on the Avant Bard stageBilly and George recounts the events of December 25, 1776, just hours before General George Washington and the Continental Army cross the Delaware River to defeat the Hessian soldiers at Trenton, New Jersey. The turning point of the American Revolutionary War, George Washington and his closest companion and enslaved person, William "Billy" Lee, prepare for the crossing while discussing, arguing, and challenging the concepts of Freedom, War, and Ultimate Love.

Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare, is one of the stage's most recognized and universally loved productions. Returning from an untimely cancellation in spring 2020 (Season 30), this interpretation of Julius Caesar, directed by Kathleen Akerley, modernizes the story's politics without targeting Caesar, but by removing Caesar entirely from the stage. The characters in this version of Julius Caesar, much like the citizens of America, are grappling with themselves as much or more than they're grappling with any particular leader. This production will use mixed media, including film and audio elements, to create a visual masterpiece.
