A small Norwegian town has just begun to win fame and wealth through its medicinal spring waters. Dr. Stockmann discovers the waters are poisoned and tries to warn his town. The press won’t report his findings; and the city officials refuse to give him a hearing. In his efforts to bring the truth to light, he is branded “an enemy of the people,” and his family’s safety is put in danger.

Produced in conjunction with The Arthur Miller Society’s 13th Conference which is being held at Ashland University on October 18-20.

The story-telling magic of ABBA's timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show. A single mother who has made her way through the years with strength and determination. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you'll never forget!

THE ODD COUPLE (Female Version)
By Neil Simon
Directed by Robert Sean Parker
Apr. 1-5 | Studio Theatre

Unger and Madison are at it again! Not Felix and Oscar, but Florence and Olive, the female version of the hilarious comic classic. As Olive and her group of girlfriends enjoy their weekly Trivial Pursuit game night, Florence arrives, fresh from being dumped by her husband. Fearful that the neurotic Florence might attempt suicide, Olive invites her to move in as her roommate. Olive’s easy-going outlook on life soon clashes with Florence’s highly-strung neurotic tendencies, testing their friendship to the limit with hilarious consequences and outcomes.
