2023 Season Announced by Commonwealth Artists Student Theatre

CAST_logoTHE FERRYMAN by Jez Butterworth running two weekends: June 30 to July 2 and July 7 to July 9.

THE FERRYMAN is set in Northern Ireland in 1981, during the height of the Troubles. Quinn, a former terrorist, has swapped his career with the Irish Republican Army (IRA) for a life on the farm in rural Armagh. He now lives with his sickly wife, their children, his sister-in-law and nephew. The IRA murdered Quinn’s brother, Seamus, when he was just twenty years old and his body has only recently been discovered. He was one of the sixteen men and women who were killed and buried in unknown locations during the 1970s, leaving their family unsure as to whether they were alive or dead. Seamus was apparently shot dead following Quinn’s defection from the IRA in 1972, and a threateningly influential IRA member, Muldoon, now comes to pay Quinn a visit. He is keen to ensure that there are no further repercussions to the IRA’s cause, now Seamus’ murder has come to light.

MEAN GIRLS: High School Edition running two weekends: July 14 to July 16 and July 21 to July 23.

After years in the making, Mean Girls: The Musical hits the stage with the favorite characters from the movie, powerful music, and timely pop culture and news references. Janis Sarkisian and Damian Hubbard welcome the audience to their “Cautionary Tale”: Cady Heron is the new girl at North Shore High School in Chicago, desperate to fit in and find friends. Janis and Damian befriend the new girl, and when The Plastics set their sights on Cady, Janis convinces naive Cady to be their “friend” in order to bring down Queen Bee Regina George’s reign. Along the way, Cady loses herself, her friends, and her crush, all for the chance to be popular and loved. When dethroned Regina gets revenge by releasing the Burn Book, Cady is brought down and must mend her broken relationships with Janis, Aaron, and even Regina. With dynamic songs for young performers, Mean Girls is an anthem to friendship, loyalty, girl power, and being true to yourself.

If you previously purchased tickets, they have automatically been moved. If you would like to move your tickets to another performance day, please email us at! Thank you for your understanding!

Cincinnati Actor’s Studio & Academy
July 29-Aug. 7

Directed by Gina Cerimele-Mechley
Music directed by Joe Montgomery
Choreographed by Gina Cerimele-Mechley & Cecelia Gries

Cast: Alex Pletikapich as Emcee, Maddi O’Connell as Sally, Trey Finkenstead as Cliff, Nick Swope as Ernst, Kate Stuard as Fraulein Schneider, Kayamarie Roll as Fraulein Kost, Ethan Brooks Baker as Herr Schultz, Hannah Hodson as Rosie, Sabrina Mack as Lulu, Peyton Wright as Frenchie, Cassandra Reeves as Fritzie/Gorilla, Cecilia Gries as Helga, Chandler Murray as Texas, Jason Coffenberry as Bobby, Tre Taylor as Victor, Con Williamson as Herman, James Pinkley as Train Officer/Sailor/Max & Jonathon Armstrong and Kat Swift as Bodyguards

In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken with English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Mature content and triggering scenes.
