Directed by Maddy Rice (COL ’20)

At the dawn of humanity, one tribe of cave-people survives the many trials of prehistoric life under the wise leadership of Jemilla, The Peacemaker. Jemilla taught her people to express themselves, rather than bashing each other’s heads with rocks and eating each other’s babies. But one member of the tribe doesn’t seem to fit in: Zazzalil. She’s always trying to invent things to make life easier… for herself. While out hatching her latest scheme, Zazzalil stumbles upon the most important discovery in history. One that will pit her tribe against woolly mammoths, saber-toothed tigers, and change the world forever. In this hilarious musical comedy, she’ll travel from omega to alpha, and become… the Firebringer!

Contains strong language and mature content, recommended for 12+

The Wolves

By Sarah DeLappe
Directed by Jenni Loo (SFS ’21)

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.

Nomadic Theatre


By Annie Baker
Directed by Timmy Sutton (COL ’20)

The week after Thanksgiving. A Bed & Breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. A cheerful innkeeper. A young couple struggling to stay together. Thousands of inanimate objects, watching. A simple enough description, but Annie Baker’s fascinating play takes a look at what theatre can be and builds a world all its own. Baker’s hyper-realism bleeds into the eerily supernatural in this quiet tale, where actors and audiences alike delve into ideas of self, mortality, and the solitude of human experience.
