The Cake

June 6 – 24

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.”

Della believes there’s no problem so big it can’t be solved while eating one of her perfectly delicious cakes. When Jen, the daughter of a dear friend, returns home to get married, Della is thrilled to bake the wedding cake—until she discovers Jen’s groom is not a groom, but a bride. Della is torn between deeply held faith and her love for Jen, who struggles to reconcile her own conservative roots with her liberal life. In a nation deeply divided on social issues, this new play by Bekah Brunstetter is a delectable confection of humor, compassion and Southern hospitality. How do we love when the political meets the personal?

Next to Normal

July 11 – 29

Father, mother, sister, brother. The Goodmans may seem like a comfortable family, but they’re just trying to make it through another day. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and three Tony Awards, this emotional rollercoaster of a rock musical twists through suburban life in contemporary America with honesty and heart. Examining one family’s struggles with mental illness, medication and grief, “Next to Normal” offers hope for self-acceptance even when nothing is truly normal.
