A Musical Fable of Broadway

MAINSTAGE THEATRE


Roll the dice and fall in love with one of the greatest musicals of all time! This American classic, set in New York City around the same time it opened on Broadway in 1950, features an eclectic ensemble of high-rolling gambler “guys,” well-meaning missionary “dolls,” and brassy-voiced showgirls in a toe-tappingly fun and romantic fable about gambling men and the strong-willed women who love them. Features students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance. More

Picnic

By William Inge

MAINSTAGE THEATRE


It’s Labor Day, 1953, and as summer gives way to autumn and freedom to the obligations of work and school, an 18-year-old girl watches the changes from her front porch: her boyfriend preparing to leave for his last year of college, a sister discovering her femininity—and a stranger who walks into her small Kansas town. Suddenly it seems everything she knew is open to question. Features students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance. More
