Current Season

 

Tristan & Isolde
Adapted and devised by Joseph A. Taylor

 

Oct. 15-17th 

*Streaming times and platform TBA

 

The captivating tale of star-crossed lovers leaps onto the stage in an original adaptation by McLennan Theatre. Follow the journey of Tristan, a young, spirited man seeking a bride for his Uncle, King Mark of Cornwall. Tristan discovers the incomparable Princess Isolde of Ireland, who agrees to his Uncle's proposal. Voyaging back to Cornwall, she and Tristan inadvertently ingest a mystic, love potion that binds their young souls for eternity.  Add a dragon, sword fighting, and dancing, and you have a recipe for an impassioned evening of tragic love.



Puffs
By Matt Cox

 

Nov. 19-21 • 7:30 p.m.
Bosque River Stage

 

Prepare to be whisked away with “a swish and a flick” to a familiar school for Wizards alongside a brigade of wide–eyed magical youngsters. But hold your flying-unicorns, this is not the enchanted tale of rambunctious, brave wizards that you may be expecting. Rather, our account follows the escapades of middling, misfit magicians, better known as the Puffs. Playwright Matt Cox conjures oddball heroes, hilarious hijinks, and perilous pitfalls into a cauldron bubbling over with fun for the whole family.

Dust off your candlestick and monkey wrench! Hasbro’s classic board game comes to life in a musical comedy extravaganza. Mr. Boddy has been murdered. All the usual suspects are in attendance: Professor Plum, Miss Scarlet, Colonel Mustard, Mrs. Peacock, Mrs. White, and Mr. Green. Ever wished for an interactive rendition of this game? Then this is the show for you! Join us as we transform the Ball Performing Arts Center into the ominous Boddy Manor where anybody could be the culprit.



The Merry Wives of Windsor
By William Shakespeare

 

April 29 - May 1 • 7:30 p.m.
Bosque River Stage

 

Why then the world’s mine oyster, Which I with sword will open.  

Shakespeare’s robust rapscallion, Sir John Falstaff, launches his wily chicanery back onto the boards. Falstaff, down on his luck, seeks to reinvigorate his financial woes by wooing two wealthy wives in 16th Century suburbia, Windsor. Not to be trifled with, these sagacious wives are too astute for Sir John’s foolish games and turn the tables on our beloved trickster. A cavalcade of deceptions and wicked pranks ensues as Falstaff stumbles towards an inevitable embrace with comeuppance.
