Animal Farm (George Orwell’s dramatic
Saturday, September 15 8:00 pm
Revolution has broken out on Manor Farm—the animals have claimed their
independence! Humans are banished
and the new “Animal Farm” will be
a beautiful egalitarian paradise. Pigs, horses, goats, donkeys and
animals are equal. They can build their new utopia, but can
they resist the corruption that led to the humans’ downfall? George
Orwell’s chilling and provocative novel is a cautionary tale that
remains relevant.The National
Players production brings this
stunning allegory to life.

admission), $20 (students/seniors/fac-staff), and $16 (children under
13). Series subscription: $38 (See both shows…a $6 savings!).

History of America
(Abridged): Special Election Edition
September 29 8:00 pm
This newly created slapstick tour
de force about the upcoming presidential election is as hysterical as it
is political.The trio entertains in this wild rollercoaster romp of
witty political satire. Irreverent, yet informed, a steady stream of
satire, parody and song is applied to a broad canvas, turning sacred
cows into comedic fodder. “This smash political
comedy at its
brashest is delivered with breakneck speed. Nothing on the
liberal-conservative spectrum escapes inspired lunacy.” (Marianne
Evett), Cleveland Plain Dealer.
