Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to tech. Around you, a company of 14 is engaged in the very peculiar task of making a new play. You'll have a seat next to the sound designer as he mixes cues. You'll eavesdrop on backstage gossip as it happens over headset. You'll watch the director struggle to contain the uncontainable. Anne Washburn (Mr. Burns) has examined the world of tech rehearsal and crafted a wondrous, layered and often hilarious world that examines the process of creation. An immersion into the world of the theatre directed by Undermain company member Blake Hackler. 10 Out of 12 is a wry and absorbing look at how work forms us and deforms us.
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.

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!

Pastor Paul's church wasn't always this big. In twenty short years, it had grown from a small, mom-and-pop operation into a full-blown mega-church with thousands of members, a coffee shop and a parking lot so big you could get lost in it. But today, Pastor Paul has a new message for his devoted flock—one that will turn the entire congregation on its head. You'll recognize the hymnals, the live choir and the preacher at the pulpit. But you've never heard a sermon quite like this before.
Scrooge is back! And he's cranky as ever! Come kick off the holiday season with us as A Christmas Carol returns to the Wyly Theatre.

Nikola Tesla was a man ahead of his time, a visionary and an inventor during an exciting and prolific era when the Industrial Revolution was transitioning into the Modern Age of electricity.

Eat (It's Not About Food) dramatizes and decodes the baffling world of eating disorders in boys and girls through a series of scenes ranging from realistic to satirical to humorous. Candidly exploring causes and warning signs, playwright Linda Daugherty takes a hard look at how society and the media influence self-identity.

The setting is the dawn of the age of reason in the early 17th century when Galileo was teaching young students the incredible account of how the earth moves around the sun, rather than the other way around. His heretical announcement, that both the moon and Jupiter only reflect the sun's light, is brought to the attention of the church and Galileo is summoned to the Vatican. His friends abandon him and his appeal to the Pope is intercepted by the inquisitor. Galileo recants, but even while imprisoned continues his writings surreptitiously. Throughout his life Galileo is pitted against an institution which claims the truth as its own commodity and threatens torture and death to those who would offer an opposing vision. After emigrating to the United States from Hitler's Germany, Brecht translated and re-worked the first version of his play in collaboration with the actor Charles Laughton. The result of their efforts was the second 'American version' of the play, which to this day remains the most widely-staged version in the English-speaking world.
In the cutthroat, dog-eat-dog world of the magazine industry, one must fight to survive. Winning means fame, fortune and a book deal; losing means being stuck in cubicle purgatory forever.

But when an average workday suddenly takes a shocking and unexpected turn, survival takes on a whole new meaning as the stakes for who will get to tell their story become higher than ever.
