The Little Sisters of Hoboken have a crisis on their hands and need to raise money fast! Reverend Mother has approved a tasteful variety show in the Mount Saint Helen school auditorium but the understudy, Sister Robert Anne, wants to be a star and everyone needs to keep an eye on Sister Amnesia until she can remember her real name. The nuns pull out all the stops including tap dancing, habit humor, an audience quiz, performances by the Mount Saint Helen Band and the Saint Andrews Sisters of Hoboken, and a special appearance by convent cook, Sister Julia, Child of God. This all-new "Mega-Musical" version promises more nuns, more laughs, and super-sized production numbers!

 By William Missouri Downs
 Directed by John Mariano
 Feb. 28, March 1-2 and March 6-7-8-9, 2019 at 7:30
 Jean Weidner Theatre, Weidner Center for the Performing Arts
 
Hamlet is a challenge for any actor, but when Jessica is cast as the title character in a NYC production she endures the “slings and arrows” (and advice) of dubious experts, in addition to making Sir Patrick Stewart her nemesis. Can she figure out “to be or not to be” by opening night? Women Playing Hamlet is fun for Shakespeare fans and everyone else.
Recommended for ages 12 and older.

 The Assassin’s Anthology
 Written and Directed by Selena Deer
 December 6-7-8 at 7:30 PM
 Jean Weidner Theatre
 Weidner Center for the Performing Arts


Nine assassins live together on an estate, each with their own specialty. Hangman, their leader and #1 assassin, has a secret he has yet to reveal to the others, until the truth is discovered by the newest addition to the team, Candle. Candle’s creative writing and impulsiveness begins to threaten the very rules that Hangman has so direly enforced. Reality begets fantasy when one of the assassins is found dead, and discovered evidence suggests that the infamous mythical assassin, the Executioner, is behind the assassination.

The Assassin's Anthology is play written and directed by Selena Deer, a Senior Theatre and Communication Major at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. Seating is limited. Recommended for ages 12 and older.
