Romeo and Juliet
Director Helen Meade plays with space and time in a totally unique way. The audience will have to choose sides: Will you follow the Capulets (Juliet) or the Montagues (Romeo)? Of course, the lovers will reunite for their scenes together. The cast includes Andrew Miller and Danielle Powell in the title roles, and Ron Siebert, a veteran actor who appeared on Broadway with James Earl Jones in “The Iceman Cometh,” and on network TV dramas, in his PSIP debut as Friar Lawrence. Free.
The Lion King
Disney's THE LION KING returns to the Benedum Center following its record-breaking 2008 engagement.

Complete with hilarious audience interaction, Saints versus Cardinals baseball, and the irrepressible Kimberly Richards as Sister, this is one lesson you'll be happy to learn!
