Noises Off: October 17 - 20
Called “the funniest farce ever written”, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called “Nothing’s On”. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.
Directed by Jennifer Popple
Flemming: An American Thriller: October 31 and November 1-3

She Kills Monsters: November 14 - 17
A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

Santaland Diaries: December 12 - 15
Presented by the Mississippi Bend Players
by David Sedaris, adapted by Joe Mantello
Think you're stressed out during the holidays? Try being one of Santa's helpers. Turns out being surrounded by children, tinsel and merriment isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Humorist David Sedaris wrote about the downside of holiday joy in a collection of fanciful stories based on his experiences called the Santaland Diaries. Once again, here's Sedaris reading from his essay as a somewhat-flawed Macy's department store elf named Crumpet.
This show contains adult language and is intended for mature audiences only.

Quad City Arts Visiting Artist Series
This Chinese American playwright, described by the New York Times as "a true original" and by Time Magazine as "the first important dramatist of American public life since Arthur Miller," is best known as the author of M. Butterfly. That enduring 1988 work, which won a Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, John Gassner Award, and Outer Critics Circle Award, was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. According to Opera News, Hwang is America’s most produced living opera librettist.

The Bald Soprano: April 16 - 19
A hilarious, unique satire on the ordinary English middle class, in which "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" talk to each other at cross purposes, while their guests, "Mr. and Mrs. Martin" fail to understand, and the Maid and a Fire Chief enter the absurd fray, getting nowhere at all...
Directed by Jonathan Quigley
American Idiot: May 7-10
The two-time Tony Award-winning hit musical Green Day's American Idiot, based on the Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before. This high-octane show includes every song from Green Day's album, American Idiot, as well as several songs from its follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown.
Johnny, Tunny and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, their paths are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is called back home to attend to familial responsibilities, and Johnny's attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. An energy-fueled rock opera, American Idiot, features little dialogue and instead relies on the lyrics from Green Day's groundbreaking album to execute the story line.
Directed by Shelley Cooper
