In this macabre tale of Scottish legends, witches, hallucinations and power, Shakespeare’s bloodiest couple thrash against the rise of their own consciences. The bard’s most disturbing tragedy, Macbeth is a compelling psychological and political thriller that follows Macbeth’s transformation from battlefield hero to bloody tyrant, revealing the human soul’s darkest depths.

October 11 – December 18, 2012

Find out who’s really crazy when a pair of lovebirds bring their mismatched families together in Kaufman and Hart’s classic screwball comedy. The delightfully mad Sycamores celebrate independence, freedom from convention and merry mayhem, while the exacting Kirbys believe in rules, hard work and rigid organization.

When young Alice Sycamore falls in love with Tony Kirby, the two families are forced to sort out their differences and ultimately determine what’s really important in life. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and adapted into an Academy Award-winning film, You Can’t Take It With You has been a perennial favorite for more than 70 years.
