By Peter Shaffer
Directed by Kathleen Tissot
In the court of the Austrian Emperor Josef, Antonio Salieri is the established composer. Enter the greatest musical genius of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Salieri has given himself to God so that he might realize his sole ambition to be a great composer. Mozart is a foul-mouthed, graceless oaf who has that which is beyond Salieri’s envious grasp: Genius.

Suzan Kurry and Buzz Kemper talk with Justin Schober and Cam Shimniok about the upcoming production of Of Dice and Men.
OF DICE AND MEN
By Cameron McNary
Directed by Suzan Kurry
OF DICE AND MEN shows the world that most gamers aren’t isolated, virgin-for-life losers: theirs is a social hobby not unlike poker or fantasy football. The play explores the rich friendships and romantic lives of a group of lifelong friends who are NOT stereotypical, Cheetos-stained, acne-blighted geeks. AT ALL. These men and women are attractive, smart, charming…and facing some major changes in their lives. Humor, brutal honesty and the good-natured kidding of people who know each other far too well culminate in an unforgettable evening that will make you laugh and think – and do so in a way that celebrates the power of gaming to bring people together, never once apologizing for it.
Performances: May 19 - June 3, 2017
Ticket Prices: General Admission $20, Students & Seniors $18, Special $15 tickets on 5/25, 5/28, 6/1 and 6/3
