Fahrenheit 451
On the heels of Ray Bradbury's death this summer at 91, Prime Stage Theatre gives the regional premiere of Fahrenheit 451 in the author's own stage adaptation directed by Justin Fortunato. In this dystopian future, firemen burn books and hunt down anyone who takes the risk of reading them. Free thought and intellectualism are discouraged; to question authority puts you in danger.

Mozart's Don Giovanni
Don Giovanni's (M. Todd Simpson) lady-killing ways catch up to him in the form of a statue that he invites to dinner. But life in the fast lane isn't easy, even for a man who claims over 2000 romantic conquests. In the end, Don Giovanni is undone by his own web of deception. Cast includes Caitlin Lynch, Jennifer Holloway, Sari Gruber, and Wayne Tigges. Antony Walker conducts.

Red Priest - Johann, I'm Only Dancing!
A dynamic presentation of music by the greatest genius of the baroque era, Johann Sebastian Bach, performed with this ensemble’s legendary blend of creativity, wit and virtuosity. Surprising juxtapositions of familiar and lesser known works are presented in a mixed garden of delights, inspired by Bach’s own improvisatory zeal. The light-hearted title (stolen from a David Bowie song) reflects the infectious spirit of dance which pervades much of Bach’s music.
