Sense and Sensibility
Adapted from Jane Austen’s Classic By:  Jon Jory
Directed By:  William Leonard
Sponsored by Baker Arboretum and ELPO
January 24th-February 9th
Sisters Elinor and Marianne find themselves captivated by two very different men in this lively and dynamic adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel. Sensible Elinor is charmed by the quiet, bumbling goodness of Edward, while passionate Marianne is swept off of her feet by the dashing and mysterious Willoughby. But when Willoughby's scandalous past and Edward's secret fiance come to light, the sisters are forced to rely upon themselves and one another to weather their heartache -- and learn that when sense and sensibility meet, love can't be far behind.

Mainstage
THE MEMBER OF THE WEDDING
By:  Carson McCullers
Directed By:  Jeff Beard
Sponsored By:  Jim Johnson
April 25th-May 11th
The Times wrote of this play: "Carson McCullers' report of a harum-scarum adolescent girl in Georgia is wonderfully—almost painfully—perceptive; and her associated sketches of a Negro mammy and a busy little boy are masterly pieces of writing." According to the Journal-American, "Something rare and special." John Mason Brown wrote: "(This) study of the loneliness of an over imaginative young Georgian girl is no ordinary play. It is felt, observed and phrased with exceptional sensitivity. It deals with the torturing dreams, the hungry egotism, and the heartbreak of childhood in a manner as rare as it is welcome…plainly, it is the work of an artist."
