With Two Wings
By Anne Negri
October 4-8, 2023
In a fantasy world where people have wings, Lyf lives an isolated existence. Though loving, Lyf’s parents have strict rules he must follow about avoiding strangers, covering his wings with a cloak, and always observing rule number one: never, ever try to fly. Will Lyf be grounded forever, or will the truth he discovers from a pair of young outsiders empower him to take flight? This coming-of-age story is a bittersweet, yet hopeful, tale that tackles the issue of parental disability with gentleness and grace.
By Edie Brickell and Steve Martin
November 15-19, 2023
Inspired by a true story, Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past—and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. With beautiful melodies and powerfully moving characters, Bright Star is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.
Antigone, Presented by the Girls of St. Catherine’s
By Madhuri Shekar
March 13-17, 2024
The St. Catherine’s drama club is struggling to put up its first school play—Sophocles’ Antigone. As if staging this tragedy in an all girls’ Catholic school isn’t challenging enough, the cast’s beloved director ends up betraying them in an unforgivable way. And it’s almost opening night! The actors must figure out the right course of action, all while rehearsing the classic play about impossibly difficult choices. What is the right thing to do? And must the show go on?

For seven years, a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. Puffs gives a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three potential heroes from another house, just trying to make it through the perils of growing up in a magic school. Alongside them are a group of loyal outcasts with a thing for badgers. Their heartfelt and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be. Puffs is not authorized, sanctioned, licensed or endorsed by J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros. or any person or company associated with the Harry Potter books, films, or play.
