Dept. of Drama and Dance Performance Calendar

The Nerd

The Nerd

by Larry Shue
Directed by Christopher Dippel
This side-splitting comedy was first presented by the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, then produced in Great Britain, then went on to Broadway. The action centers on the hilarious dilemma of a young architect who is visited by a man he's never met but who saved his life in Vietnam. The visitor turns out to be an incredibly inept, hopelessly clueless "nerd" who outstays his welcome with a vengeance.

Hair

Hair

Book and Lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni
Music by Galt MacDermot
Directed by Cindy Rosenthal
Hair celebrates the sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, long-haired, bell-bottomed, beaded and fringed glory. To an infectiously energetic rock beat, the show wows audiences with songs like “Aquarius,” “Good Morning, Starshine,” “Hair,” “I Got Life,” and “Let The Sun Shine In.” Exploring ideas of identity, community, global responsibility and peace, Hair remains as relevant as ever as it examines what it means to be a young person in a changing world.

Dates/Times: October 27 through November 5
Friday, October 27 and November 3, at 8 p.m.
Saturday, October 28 and November 4, at 8 p.m.

The Clean House

The Clean House

by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Jennifer Hart
The Clean House takes place in what the author describes as "metaphysical Connecticut," mostly in the home of a married couple who are both doctors. They have hired a housekeeper named Matilde, an aspiring comedian from Brazil who's more interested in coming up with the perfect joke than in house-cleaning. This theatrical and wildly funny play is a whimsical and poignant look at class, comedy and the true nature of love.

Friday, November 10 and 17, at 8 p.m.
Saturday, November 11 and 18, at 8 p.m.
Sunday, November 12 and 19, at 2 p.m.
