THE MILL ON THE FLOSS: November 9-11, 14-18 in the Margetts Theatre
By Helen Edmundson
Adapted from the novel by George Eliot
Directed by Adam Houghton


Bold, brave, and beautifully theatrical, this imaginative stage adaptation of the classic 19th-century novel probes the coming-of-age story of Maggie Tulliver, a woman fractured by the restrictions of Victorian society. Making clever use of three actors in the same role to tell her story, the play brings emotional depth to this tale of love and loss in rural England. Get your tickets HERE.

Post-performance discussions Nov. 9 and 16
ASL interpreted performance Nov. 9

Proficiency Workshop – November 18th, 9-12pm D341 HFAC

Mind the wolf, fear the witch, and look for the giant in the sky!  Into the Woods is an extraordinary Tony Award-winning musical adaptation (and recent Hollywood blockbuster) of the classic tales of the Brothers Grimm. Sophisticated, enchanting, and full of unexpected turns, this fractured fairy-tale explores the true power of wishes and unmasks the reality of what happens after they all come true. Get your tickets HERE before they’re gone!
