Written & Directed by Ned O’Reilly

November 7 – 22, 2014 (Drury Stage) In this original satire on contemporary privacy, corporate trainers share a too-small hotel room in Wisconsin Rapids. Two women, one man – but only two beds!?!?!?! What ensues is a hilarious evening of personal devices, double entendres, corporate espionage, Wisconsin-style partying, social networking, casual sex…and fantasy baseball.

THE BEAUTIFUL DARK

Written by Erik Gernand

Directed by Sadie Yi

January 23 – February 7, 2015 (Evjue Stage) The eldest son of a divorced couple is expelled from college, but no one knows why – until an unexpected visit from an ex-girlfriend reveals his dark and terrible secret. Interspersed with the action of the play are a series of short monologues in which we see the poetic turmoil of the young man’s soul revealed through his writings; the play spirals deep down into the maelstrom of his thoughts, until it comes to its tragically inevitable conclusion.

March 20 – April 4, 2015 (Drury Stage) The same creative team that brought you 2014′s smash hit, Xanadu, collaborates once again to bring another great musical to the Bartell. This time, it is the story of two star-crossed lovers in a modern-day twist on the tale of Romeo and Juliet: Jason and Peter are seniors at a Catholic boarding school, which is mounting a production of the classic Shakespearean tragedy. As everyone in the school prepares for the play – and for the uncertain future after graduation – the bond between the two young men frays and breaks in the presence of social and societal pressure, drugs, sex, and plenty of Catholic guilt. A powerful musical, and definitely NOT a comedy.
