Not Another Christmas Letter @ Old Creamery Theatre Main Stage
Dec 14 @ 7:30 pm

Book, Lyrics and Additional Music by Paul Cozby. Music and Arrangements by Laura Berquist.

An original musical comedy that celebrates everything that drives us crazy about Christmas… and why we love it anyway!

Theatre Production: The Wolves @ Armstrong Hall: Plumb-Flemming Black Box Theatre
Dec 14 @ 7:30 pm

By Sarah DeLappe, directed by Katy Hahn. Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.

“The scary, exhilarating brightness of raw adolescence emanates from every scene of this uncannily assured first play by Sarah DeLappe.” — The New York Times

“The Wolves is a delightful meditation on society, sex, and soccer … DeLappe’s dialogue is hilarious and idiosyncratic, moving swiftly from gross-out humor to pain […] She offers us ninety minutes in a smart, sympathetic, female world. It’s a patch of Astroturf I would gladly set foot on again.” — The Village Voice

Directed by Bo Frazier

January 31, February 1, 6, 7, 8 at 8:00 p.m.
February 2 at 2:00 p.m.
E.C. Mabie Theatre, UI Theatre Building

On a typical hot and humid New York City night in the summer of ‘69, a diverse group of queer outcasts gathers at The Stonewall Inn. However, on this night, when the police show up for a routine raid, all are thrust into the frontlines of history. A riot ensues that would launch the LGBTQ+ movement in America. With an original rock n’ roll score, emotional poetic language, and gritty choreography, Hit the Wall pays homage to these revolutionaries who came together 50 years ago to fight for their freedom.

This production contains extreme violence, intimacy, sexual content, adult language, and adult themes.
