Directed by Evan R. Ash

Adapted from Norman Corwin’s 1941 radio play from the World War II era, We Hold These Truths will be performed in the format of a live radio play and serves as an important history lesson as well as a reminder of what being a good citizen really means. The actors will perform with script in hand, to portray the original setting more accurately.

Two Rooms

By Lee Blessing
Directed by Kit Honkanen

Two Rooms navigates the real and imagined worlds of the four characters. As they interact with one another in their minds, their imagined conversations affect their real life actions.

Lee Blessing explores what it means to be an American at war on foreign soil, what the American legacy is, not just for the military and the government, but for people who just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, and the wrong nationality in the wrong place. He also explores the role of the media and the government in releasing information to the public while withholding information from military enemies.

Enoument (Studio Project in Development)

Conceived/Created/Performed by Azure Hall & Kit Honkanen

Enouement (n) the bittersweetness of having arrived in the future, seeing how things turn out, but not being able to tell your past self.

The story will be told through movement, dance, puppetry, and music in the style of Story Theatre. The performers/ dancers are the main focus, puppetry in the style of Basil Twist's "Symphony Fantastique." Fabric will be manipulated to create imagery that will tell the story.
