Winner of the John Gassner Playwriting Award. This critically acclaimed, award-winning evening of comedies combines wit, intellect, satire and just plain fun. “Like sketches for some hilarious, celestially conceived revue. The writing is not only very funny, it has density of thought and precision of poetry…All in the Timing is by a master of fun. David Ives spins hilarity out of words.” —The New York Times.

This Tony Award winning musical follows American writer Cliff Bradshaw as he navigates Berlin in the early 1930s, befriending other residents of his low-rent boarding house including Sally Bowles, a dancer and singer at the Kit Kat Club. "The musical is a sharp, provocative indictment of intolerance, self-deception, and the dangers of fascism."

Come to the Cabaret, old chum, for our showcase production of the season.

Mask & Hammer Productions

Productions by the Mask & Hammer theatre club are entirely student produced and directed.

Hamblin Theatre

One afternoon, Anthony arrives unexpectedly at classmate Caroline’s door bearing a beat-up copy of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, an urgent assignment from their English teacher. Homebound due to illness, Caroline hasn’t been to school in months, but she is as quick and sardonic as Anthony is athletic, sensitive, and popular. As these two let down their guards and share their secrets, this seemingly mundane poetry project unlocks a much deeper mystery that has brought them together.

I and You is an ode to youth, life, love, and the strange beauty of human connectedness.
