An all-new show that is perfect for short attention spans and the wee ones! This is a simple story of what happens one day when color comes into your life. Pale Blue and Inky Blue are happy in…well, their blueness. When a red sock enters the picture, Pale and Inky and the audience are surprised by their reaction. If you liked Balloonacy, you'll love this gentle play that introduces the idea of tolerance and understanding in an age-appropriate and soft-hearted theatrical experience. Blue is filled with lots of fun, humor and whimsy, and at the end of the show, you will be too!
Electra's mother murdered her father, and Electra just can't let it go. With the return of her brother Orestes, the siblings seek justice…or is it vengeance?

Observe intimate scenes between characters while hearing commentary about the play's meaning through individual headphones that will be provided for each audience member, creating an experience that is simultaneously both public and private.

"Sometimes the best way to deal with new problems is to look at an old story." Inspired by the timeless tales of Robin Hood and Sherwood Forest, this brand new, musical comedy is rich with romance, jokes, songs, sword fights, dancing—and even an archery contest! Brought to you by the dynamic creative team behind DTC's critically-acclaimed 2010 production of Give It Up! (Broadway's Lysistrata Jones), Hood will make you laugh, stir your soul, and steal your heart.
When a public school teacher is arrested for teaching Darwin's Theory of Evolution to his sophomore students, two powerhouse lawyers face off in a court of law.

Along the way, Jack encounters help from the Man in the Moon, a talking hen, a kindly servant, and a few other surprising characters. When he comes face to face with a fiendish giant, Jack must use his wits to escape the colossal villain's castle in the clouds. Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum!
Young James Henry Trotter's resilience is tested when he is sent off to live with his mean aunts, Spiker and Sponge, after a chain of unfortunate incidents. Life is no fun at all there until he accidentally spills some tiny green things on a tree, and…voilà, a giant peach! When James and his new oversized friends — Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybug, Earthworm, and Spider — snip the stem of the peach, the quest for happiness and great adventure lands them in New York City and at the center of attention. Of its premiere one reporter wrote, "Move heaven and earth to see this wonderful adaptation!"
The beautiful Zimbabwe-based Cinderella tale returns! An African villager named Mufaro has two daughters whom everyone agrees are beautiful. But, they have their differences. Manyara possesses a bad temper and is self-centered (but never in front of Mufaro); Nyasha is kind and considerate to people and to animals. When Mufaro learns that the King is in the process of meeting all of the most worthy and beautiful women in order to choose a wife, he decides that both of his daughters should go. Celebrate goodness, generosity, and love with traditional dancing, rhythmic drumming, and glorious African song. Based on the 1988 Caldecott Honor Award book.
Undermain returns to the work of groundbreaking playwright Jackie Sibblies Drury, who's provocative and exciting play We Are Proud to Present a Presentation… was staged in its 30th season. In Ms. Drury's latest play, Really, three peoples lives intertwine, through the art of photography as they search for the truth of their common history in this tense and telling play about artists, legacy, and the ephemeral nature of time. Really asks what do we try to leave behind, what do we actually leave behind, and how do we deal with being left.
