This celebrated play had a long and successful run on Broadway and the road. A tragic and effective drama which ranks as one of the greatest in our theater. The play reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject—so far as possible—the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores. The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister, with whom she goes to live in New Orleans, intensified by the earthy and extremely “normal” young husband of the latter, leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness.

After years of traveling abroad, Avery Sutton is happy to return to the comfort of his home in Connecticut. Unfortunately, almost nothing is as he remembered it.

All of the wit and romance of Jane Austen's classic 1813 novel come to life in this refreshingly fast-paced and engaging new adaptation. Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet's most urgent priority. But with four sisters, an overzealous match-making mother, and a string of unsuitable suitors, it's difficult to escape the subject. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense -- but the truth turns out to be slipperier than it seems. In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice, and to make the best match of all?

BLT proudly presents Arthur Miller's Pulitzer Prize winning play "Death of a
Salesman", this highly acclaimed play has won countless Tony's and is
considered to be one of the greatest plays of the 20th century. Through this
amazingly dramatic story we get to experience the visceral loss of identity
and a man's inability to accept change in himself as he experiences his loss
of, or never even realized, American Dream, we watch him internally fight
the lifelong denial of his lack of success and the lie that his life
represents. We see the poignant and raw vulnerability of his life reviewed
and relived through his eyes and the obvious and yet unaware disconnect with
his family while he unwittingly and even tragically drags his family through
this very dark corridor of his self-created reality. The tragedy of a life
miss-lived, the pain of his self-denied reality and the reflection on and
from those around him. Please come and see why it won the Pulitzer

Needed: 8 Men/5 Women age 20-65;

If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
