PERFORMING FOR AUDIENCES SINCE 1968

NEXT ON OUR OAK STREET STAGE

Our first production of the 2022-2023 season (our 54th!) will be Alan Ball's Five Women Wearing the Same Dress. This play, which is equal parts funny and touching, takes place during an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate. In it, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. Performance dates are September 16-18 and 23-25. This production is being directed by Bridget R. Drew. TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

UPCOMING AUDITIONS

We will be holding auditions for our December production, Jordan Harrison's Marjorie Prime, at the end of September. In this play, it is the age of artificial intelligence, and 85-year-old Marjorie — a jumble of disparate, fading memories — has a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance? In this richly spare, wondrous new play, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace. Those auditioning are encouraged to sign up for an audition slot at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c094aa8a623a4fd0-marjorie. Questions about auditions or/and the production can be addressed to the director, Heath A. Diehl, at [email protected]
