Go Dog Go
P.D. Eastman's classic children's book comes to life onstage in an exploration of movement, color and space. The dogs delve into life with gusto, crating a visual spectacle for the audience to feast upon. They snorkel. They howl at the moon. They ride a ferris wheel. They sing and dance and climb trees. A musical world of doggy fun. Like a pop up book that comes to life and never stops.

Lecture by Faith Beasley
"Enlightening Encounters: France and India's Grand Siècle" Faith Beasley's talk will explore the political, cultural and financial relationships between France and India in the 17th century. From fashion to economy, the exchange between the two countries was thriving. Beasley, Ph.D., is a professor of French at Dartmouth College. Her talk follows the publication of her latest book in 2018, “Versailles Meets the Taj Mahal,” which identifies and explores the traces that exposure to India left on the cultural artifacts and mindset of France’s “Great Century” and the early Enlightenment.

Curse of the Starving Class Opening Night
A family’s survival in a harsh and changing world is put to the test in Sam Shepard’s "Curse of the Starving Class." The setting is a farmhouse in the American West, inhabited by the Tate family, who has enough to eat but not enough to satisfy the other hungers that bedevil them.
