The Living by Anthony Clarvoe
Directed by Jennifer Wintzer - Webster Conservatory

Open, Stay by Anna DeNoia
Directed by Anna DeNoia - Hawthorn Woods
Open, Stay is a collection of moments from ten different love stories— beginnings, endings and in-betweens, as well as the moments that come long after we say goodbye. It is an exploration of how we love and how we lose one another, all connected to the need that brings us together— the need for each other.
Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare
Directed by Jason Spelbring - Webster University
Viola has been shipwrecked in a violent storm off the coast of Illyria; in the process she has lost her twin brother, Sebastian.

This cross-dressing, ship-wreck surviving, poetry-loving girl finds herself at the center of a not-so-average love triangle.

Directed by Melissa Rain Anderson - Webster University
Romance, revelry and enchanting music ignite in this contemporary, yet lovingly faithful, musical adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy.
