SINCE 1949!





TOUR 58!

By William Shakespeare


"O, beware, of jealousy.  It is the

green-eyed monster which doth mock
the meat it feeds on.” (III, iii)

The Importance

of Being Earnest


by Oscar Wilde


Oscar Wilde's delightful farce is one of

theatre's most enduring comedies.  A

frothy mix of Victorian mores, hidden

lineages, and assumed identities, this

is a light -hearted romp filled with

dazzling humor and whit.  Remember,

"In matters of utmost importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing."




TOUR 59!

(September 2007 - May 2008)


Twelfth Night


By William Shakespeare


“What country friend is this?” (I, ii)


Mistaken identities, misdirected

passions, unrequited love, fools,

reveling, and madness…  Twelfth

Night, Shakespeare’s popular comedy

about twins Sebastian and Viola who

are separated by a shipwreck boasts

some of Shakespeare’s most

memorable characters.  Expect

National Players to reinvigorate this classic play with new insight.




Call of the Wild


A New Musical Adaptation!


From the works of Jack London.

(Call of the Wild and White Fang)


Book & Lyrics by Jon Lipsky

Music by Bill Barclay


“It’s tooth for tooth, and eye for eye,

And one of us is gonna die!”


In this explosive, musical adaptation of

Jack London’s stories, man and dog challenge the harsh, unforgiving

landscape of the Far North only to discover that, while it is hard to go into

The Wild, it is even harder to come back.  


A tale of survival and redemption.





TOUR 60!

(September 2008 - May 2009)


As You Like It


By William Shakespeare


The Forest of Arden resounds with

mischief, confusion, wit and romance

in one of Shakespeare’s best loved

comedies.  Come join Rosalind,

Orlando, Pheobe, Corin and all the

others in this delightful, love-filled romp

through the woods!









By George Orwell

New Adaptation


Is Big Brother watching you?  George

Orwell’s horrifying prediction for human

society sounds the alarm of

governmental forces run amok.
