The National Players present The Crucible | Sunday, April 7, 2019 at 3:00 pm | BUY TICKETS
No one is safe as a reign of terror rips through 1692 Salem. Led by Abigail Williams, a group of girls who claim to have seen the Devil hurl out charges of witchcraft, sending those who won’t confess to the noose. When the accusing finger points to his wife, John Proctor is forced to confront his past and determine his future. Arthur Miller’s searing drama, inspired by the McCarthy era, comes to vivid new life in the National Players’ bareknuckle staging.

“The entire experience was powerful and inspirational, and no doubt one that many will never forget.”
- Paramount Theatre

Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus | Friday, November 9, 2018 at 7:30 pm
This live comedy show is so much more than just the book!  The performer in the show relates to the audience as someone who resisted the Mars/ Venus work for years, but then he meets John Gray.  Now his experience leads him to share with others how he sees the relationships of men and women from a very humorous perspective. This hysterical 90-minute show will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they see themselves on stage.

“A hilarious one-man-parody from the New York Times #1 best-selling book of the last decade. The show was a hoot!”

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo | Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 7:30 pm | BUY TICKETS
Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo was founded in 1974 by a group of ballet enthusiasts for the purpose of presenting a playful, entertaining view of traditional, classical ballet in parody form and en travesti. The Trocks, as they are affectionately known, quickly garnered a major critical essay by Arlene Croce in The New Yorker, and combined with reviews in The New York Times and The Village Voice, established the Company as an artistic and popular success.

“The Trocks sit firmly at the intersection of fun and flawless dance.”
- The Seattle Times
