“You say: life is beautiful.
But what if it only seems that way.”
In a country house in Russia at the end of the 19th century, three sisters long to return to the Moscow of their youth. Meanwhile, their sister-in-law wages domestic war. Soldiers in a battalion stationed in town long for the sisters. And across Russia, a cataclysm is brewing. Sarah Ruhl brings fresh urgency to Chekhov’s tragicomic masterpiece in her lyrical translation.

Three Sisters (Ruhl) is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.

Young Footliters presents Treasure Island @ Coralville Center for the Performing Arts
Mar 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
The story of Treasure Island is a classic. Originally written by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1883, this adaptation by ArtReach Children’s Theatre Plays’ Kathryn Schultz Miller encompasses all the elements needed for an entertaining story.
The Young Footliters Youth Theatre invites you to join them on a slightly different adventure, as Jim Hawkins, after having his worst day ever, dreams of a better life as a pirate. He meets pirates Billy Bones and Long John Silver, as well as beautiful mermaids, dancing crabs, and some very vocal parrots.
 
Group Discounts: Groups of 10 or more can save 15%; contact the Box Office for details.
Adult: $17
Senior (55+): $15
Student (11-18 & college): $15
Youth (10 & under): $12
Harvey @ Washington Community Center
Mar 13 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta’s social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit. To avoid future embarassment for her family—and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae—Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. At the sanitarium, a frantic Veta explains to the staff that her years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also, and so the doctors mistakenly commit her instead of her mild-mannered brother. The truth comes out, however; Veta is freed, and the search is on for Elwood, who eventually arrives at the sanitarium of his own volition, looking for Harvey. But it seems that Elwood and his invisible companion have had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all.
