“SPELL #7″

By Ntozake Shange

Directed by Mari Travis

October 23rd thru November 1st , 2015

This striking choreopoem by the author of  For Colored Girls … is set in St. Louis in a bar frequented by Black artists and musicians.  It is another meditation on the irony of being Black in a white world.  The artists bare their souls in soliloquies, many of them illustrated by in the mood dances.  Spell #7 is humanely upbeat.  In the end, (it) proclaims inner self respect as the essential quality of Black pride and Black identity.

“DEATH BY CHOCOLATE”

By Paul Freed

Directed by Aaron Androh

November 20th thru December 6th

Members of the newly renovated Meadowbrook Health Resort are dropping like flies, including famed chef Edith Chiles! On the eve of the grand re-opening, this is not the best advertisement! It’s up to John Stone, the manager, to find the cause and the murderer.  This comedy is delightful and will have you leaving with nothing to worry about. Maybe!!!
