2013-2014 Theatre Season
October 17-19, 2013 in the Lorton Performance Center at 8:00p.m., October 20 at 2:00p.m.
Not a jukebox musical, but a music review, "Beehive" flies through all or part of 40 songs--two written for the show and the rest of them spanning the electric array of popular female performers of the late 1950s to 1969. The music shifts dramatically as well, from early girl groups (The Chiffons, The Shirelle, The Supremes) to the solo work of Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Petula Clark, CHER and others. Directed by Michael Wright

Opens January 31, February 1, 2014 in the Lorton Performance Center at 8:00p.m.
What does dance look like in the digital age? How has technology influenced the creative process? And what new stages have been created via the internet? FLASH explores these ideas and more in a concert of new dance works by TU faculty, students and guest artists. Directed by Jessica Vokoun

A religious conman infiltrates the household of a gullible man and his exasperated family in Moliere's 1664 comedy. A newly imagined telling of Moliere's story puts us in the heart of 21st century Texas. Directed by Steven Marzolf
