It’s creepy and it’s kooky!! It’s a hilarious musical! It’s every father’s nightmare! Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And worse, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia! Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents. All the lovable characters (and the musical theme) from the classic TV show are here, along with great songs like, ““When You’re an Addams”, “Where Did We Go Wrong?”, “Just Around the Corner”, “Live Before We Die” and “Tango de Amor”!

THREE SISTERS
Northern Kentucky University
Oct. 17-27
Stauss Theatre [Highland Heights]

As the Prozorov sisters and their brother yearn for a return to adventure-filled life in Moscow, the pastoral setting of their new lives brings change and reflection on love, marriage, and career. In a prophetic hinting of the coming Bolshevik Revolution, the playwright weaves a memorable tale about the rise of the working class and social change in Russia. Considered one of Anton Chekhov’s greatest plays, Three Sisters is packed with action and emotion, and explores the aching desire of dreams and the often cold realities that come to pass.

In this 2015 Tony Award winning Best Play, 15-year-old Christopher uses his extraordinary brain to navigate everyday life.

When Christopher finds his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, he becomes determined to solve the mystery of who murdered the dog. His detective work takes him on a thrilling journey through London that overturns his entire world.

A NEW BRAIN Runs Oct. 17-19

D2d_A New Brain logoA NEW BRAIN
Dare to Defy Productions
Oct. 17-19
PNC Annex [Dayton]

Cast: Bobby Mitchum as Gordon Michael Schwinn, Brent Hoggatt as Roger Delli-Bovi, Danielle Ruddy as Rhoda, Abby Hoggatt as Nancy D/Waitress, Lindsay Sherman as Mimi Schwinn, Vanae Pate as Homeless Lady, Brandon Leatherland as Mr. Bungee, John Woll as Richard, Zach King as Dr. Jafar Berensteiner & Garrett Young as The Minister

By the Tony Award-winning authors of Falsettos, here is an energetic, sardonic, often comical musical about a composer during a medical emergency. Gordon collapses into his lunch and awakes in the hospital, surrounded by his maritime-enthusiast lover, his mother, a co-worker, the doctor, and the nurses. Reluctantly, he had been composing a song for a children’s television show that features a frog – Mr. Bungee – and the specter of this large green character and the unfinished work haunts him throughout his medical ordeal.
