Wayfinding Wayfinding

by Whitney Rowland

February 9 – 20, 2022 

Directed by Lava Alapai

A fantastical, poignant comedy about Jane, an emotionally-numbed new widow, and Harrison, an inattentive, self-sabotaging fiancé. In seeking escape, these two strangers collide – both literally and figuratively – tangling their life lines and setting them on a time-bending journey involving an intercontinental plane crash, a magical forest, and a choice that leads them both to an unexpected destination. 

Rehearsals begin on January 11, 2022.


February 9 – 20, 2022
Wed – Sat, 7:30 pm. Sunday matinees at 2 pm

This enduring comedy about masquerade and identity finds twins Viola and Sebastian shipwrecked and separated. Their journeys home leads them through the land of Illyria, where romance springs at many angles – even impossible triangles. “If music be the food of love, play on!”

April 6 – 23, 2022
Wed – Sat, 7:30 pm.
