In the Event of My Death, November 20142015-2016: Connections Through Threads That Bind

“We cannot live for ourselves alone. Our lives are connected by a thousand invisible threads, and along these sympathetic fibers, our actions run as causes and return to us as results.”  ― Herman Melville

Ashland University Theatre's 2015-2016 season focuses on human connections and the threads that bind us together whether it be through family, romance, or technology. We are all connected in various ways throughout our lives.  

Quilters, the musical, is a heart-warming celebration of American womanhood which depicts the courage and spirit of our nation’s pioneer women. Music, dance and drama transform the harsh realities of frontier life into a Legacy Quilt containing blocks of familiar patterns like the Lone Star, the Log Cabin and the Double Wedding Ring. The pieces of these women’s lives are stitched together with love, laughter and tenderness to tell a story of survival, fellowship and family values on the road West.

Dead Man's Cell Phone is the story of a stranger who has had enough of an incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café, while a dead man has a lot of loose ends. This wildly imaginative new comedy is about how we memorialize the dead and how we are forced to confront our own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world. 

A Midnight Summer's Dream is one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies which follows the adventures of four young Athenian lovers. Meanwhile, a band of fairies and a troupe of Athenian craftsmen rehearsing a play attempt to manipulate and control the events surrounding the couples’ marriages. How will the summer romances end?

Join Ashland University Theatre for a season of LIVE theatre that takes you on a journey of human connections where everyone's actions have a cause and effect on themselves and each other.
