SPRING SEMESTER

She Stoops to Conquer by Oliver Goldsmith, directed by Noah Tuleja
April 16-18 at 8 pm and April 19 at 2 pm

Oliver Goldsmith’s frothy comedy of manners is a masterpiece of mistaken identity.  Filled with larger than life comic characters and a fast-paced plot, this witty romance has delighted audiences for more than 200 years.  With its perpetually fresh look at love’s secrets and its generous-hearted message of happiness for all, Goldsmith’s play remains an enduring example of pure theatrical joy.

FALL SEMESTER

Three by Ten(nessee) a trio of one acts by Tennessee Williams, directed by Noah Tuleja
October 17 & 18 at 8 pm, 18 & 19 at 2 pm

Join us on a fascinating journey through three periods in the career of America’s premier dramatist, Tennessee Williams.  First stop:  a seedy hotel in New Orleans’ French Quarter; next, an art studio in New York City during the 1980s art boom; and our last stop:  a mysterious boarding house where nothing is as it seems, an homage to the post-war absurdist movement.  Each play features the classic Williams themes of loss, art, and love; together they bring us to the ultimate destination:  a view into the depths of the human heart.

 Box Office will be staff beginning Mon, October 13, 3-6 pm M-F and one hour prior to performance.  Tickets are $5 general admission and $3 for students and senior citizens. For reservations, call (413) 538-2406 or email:  rookeboxoffice@gmail.com

Voicemail reservations will be taken beginning Wednesday, October 1.  Please speak clearly, spell your last name and leave a phone number as all reserved are confirmed.

All reserved tickets must be picked up one half hour prior to the performance.

SPRING SEMESTER

Living Out by Lisa Loomer, directed by Sheila Siragusa
February 26-28 at 8 pm and March 1 at 2 pm

A searingly funny comedy about the complicated relationship between a Salvadoran nanny and her harried employer, a white, affluent lawyer.  New York playwright Lisa Loomer’s hit play about working mothers lifts the lid off the pressure cooker of race, class, marriage and power, exposing the high cost of trying to “do it all” with sympathy and savvy wit.
