The Heir Apparent
By David Ives • Directed by M. Craig Getting
About the Play
When the family of a wealthy geezer gets wind of his imminent demise, an exuberant and hilarious struggle breaks out to get hold of his estate. In this tour de force of rhyming couplets and period costumes, comic suspense reigns. Will money, low cunning, or love triumph? From the playwright of New Jerusalem and The Liar, this modern farce in the tradition of Molière crackles with humor, poetry, and romance.

Romeo and Juliet
By William Shakespeare • Directed by Charles McMahon
About the Play
Announcing the return of Romeo and Juliet, designed specifically for high school audiences! Featuring a company of Philadelphia actors, this production will bring the printed page to life, focusing on the clarity of action and language as well as the emotional power of the story. Beloved all over the world for the tragic romance of its star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet is also the story of an enduring feud between the Capulet and Montague families – a conflict grown so deadly that it throws an entire city into turmoil. When Juilet and her Romeo rise above the old grudges, their love may heal the deep divisions in Verona... or bring the whole city crashing down.
