FDU's Main Stage Season 2013/2014

Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

The most powerful love story ever written, Romeo and Juliet, composed  early in Shakespeare’s career, tells the story of two star crossed lovers whose untimely deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. It was among Shakespeare’s most popular plays during his lifetime and, along with Hamlet, remains so to this day.

Urinetown by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis

One of the most outrageous musicals in recent years, URINETOWN is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution . In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. Citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a  malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. One man decides he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

The Laramie Project - 10 Years Later by Moises Kauffman

In 1998, gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepherd left the Fireside Bar with Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson. The following day he was discovered tied to a fence, brutally beaten and close to death. SIx days later he died. Later that year, ten members of Tectonic Theatre Project traveled to Laramie and conducted interviews with the people of the town and those texts became the basis for the play ' The Laramie Project'. Ten years later, they returned to try to understand the long term effect of the murder. They found a town wrestling with its legacy and its place in history. In addition to revisiting the folks whose words riveted us in the original play, this time around the company also spoke with the two murderers, as well as Matthew's mother, Judy Shepherd. 'The Laramie Project - Ten Years Later' is a bold new work, which asks the question "How does society write its own history?"

Performance dates: May 7-10th at 8.00pm and Sunday, May 11th at 2.30pm.
