Ordinary Days
Music and lyrics by Adam Gwon
Feb. 12-23

Four young New Yorkers navigate the chaos of being alive in the city that never sleeps, in a world that is eternally shifting. While seemingly unconnected, their paths become entwined in the most unexpected of ways and at the most unlikely of moments. This simple, sweet musical by one of today’s most impressive musical theatre talents, Adam Gwon, reminds us that remarkable lives grow from weeks, months, and years of quite Ordinary Days.

“. . . a sad-sweet comment on the anonymity of life in the city, where it is possible to change other people’s fates without actually getting to meet them.”

Much Ado About Nothing
William Shakespeare
April 8-19

Beatrice and Benedick are meant for each other. Trouble is, they don’t see it that way. In one of Shakespeare’s wittiest and most romantic of comedies, mistaken identities, misdirected insults, devious fakery, and bumbling antics prove no match for the effervescent power of love. Will calculated swooning and conniving mischief succeed to find Beatrice and Benedick falling madly for each other, or will it all simply amount to Much Ado About Nothing?

“. . . full of love and laughter, will both delight and entertain you.”  —TheatreMania

UMW Theatre Road Trip:
We are privileged to live an hour away from a world-class theatre city, Washington, DC, home to a great number of spectacular companies. This season we are taking you on a road trip to experience the breathtaking work of these theatres.  We will board a charter bus at duPont Hall, and a member of our faculty will talk about the theatre and the production we are about to see. On the way home, we will enjoy a post-performance discussion about our theatre experience.  Each Road Trip is $80. Your cost covers your transportation to and from the theatre and your ticket. No driving. No parking. Going to the theatre in Washington could not be easier!  Visit us at for more information and to purchase tickets!
