Cyrano de Bergerac

de Bergerac is the full package: he’s a poet, playwright and consummate swordsman. The only thing standing in the way of declaring his love for Roxane is his grotesquely large nose. When Roxane confesses that she’s fallen for a handsome young cadet named Christian, Cyrano takes him under his wing, adds brains to his beauty and, through Christian, expresses his own feelings to Roxane without her suspecting a thing. Wit, wordplay and rousing passion make this a heroic comedy for the ages.

School Girls: Or The African Mean Girls Play
The reigning queen bee at Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school has her sights set on the Miss Ghana Pageant. But a new student captures the attention of the pageant recruiter—and the previously hive-minded students. Award-winning playwright Jocelyn Bioh’s buoyant and biting comedy explores the universal similarities (and glaring differences) facing teenage girls across the globe.

An Evening with Oskar Eustis (with Jack Reuler, Dominic Papatola and Jearlyn Steele featuring music from Eric Mayson)
This is an opportunity for community members to learn from and engage with the renowned Oskar Eustis, the artistic director of the Public Theater—a playhouse known for being a hub for rapidly burgeoning titles like “Hamilton,” “Fun Home” and “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson,” collecting 59 Tony Awards. Oskar joins Mixed Blood to discuss, among other things, his passionate belief that theater has a place in democracy.
As artistic director of the Public Theater, Oskar guides the organization’s civic engagement that seeks to deliberately blur the line between performer and audience by inviting community members to attend workshops, take classes, watch performance and engage in the creation of participatory theatrical works.

Blood Knot
Athol Fugard’s “Blood Knot” is a parable of two brothers who share a one-room shack near Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Equally important today as it was at the time of its 1961 premiere, the play is a poignant, piercing metaphor for racial tension, powerfully acted by James A. Williams and Stephen Yoakam.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at or by calling the box office.
