Our Class
In 1941, as Poland is being invaded, we meet ten schoolchildren, each one innocent and unaware of their futures as villains or victims - or both; each actor portrays a character from age 8 to adulthood. Fourteen "lessons" show how fear, envy and paranoia beget violence, murder and retribution. Music by Doug Levine & Susanne Ortner-Roberts (performed live) helps make Our Class an unforgettable experience. Directed by Aoife Spillane-Hinks. Parental discretion advised.

The School for Scandal
Directed by Alan Stanford, Richard Brinsley Sheridan's The School for Scandal is widely considered a comic masterpiece of the Restoration Period with witty dialogue, hidden identities, and appropriately scandalous, slanderous, and scheming characters. This comedy of manners (both good and bad!) still feels fresh after 235 years.

Bell Plays Bernstein
Superstar violinist Joshua Bell returns to perform Leonard Bernstein’s heart-wrenching Serenade, a piece Bernstein dedicated to the memory of his mentor, the legendary conductor Serge Koussevitzky. Composer of the Year Mason Bates’ Desert Transport depicts the Arizona desert as seen from above in a helicopter. Spanish conductor Juanjo Mena makes his PSO debut with Brahms' stunning Third Symphony, a prime example of the deeply personal music composed during the Romantic era.
