"Today, the Medici Institute announced a major policy initiative designed to increase access to the arts. The "Art is Free" law will make it illegal to offer, agree to, or engage in an artistic act for compensation"

- Charlotte Hess, AP Entertainment writer

In this brave new world of free art, a theatre company struggles to make what could be their last show. Guided by the ghost of theatre past, both actors and audience members will be shown a future where "Art is Free"




By Moliere

Center Stage, Performing Arts Center

Written in 1664 (and so scandalous that the Archbishop of Paris threatened excommuni-cation for anyone who saw it), Moliere's classic comedy about a scheming imposter and the family he tries to ruin maintains a biting relevance for the 21st Century in its incisive depiction of lust, greed, and religious hypocrisy.

all in the timing

This collection of brilliant short comedies takes you on a whirlwind tour-de-force of wit and wordplay. Wacky characters, sparkling repartee, and inspired verbal dexterity create a world of disorientation and delight. An evening of existential farce for anyone who has navigated a first date, experienced the fear of a blank page, or questioned the meaning of life and the universe.



Book/Lyrics by Gerome Ragni & James Rado
Music by Galt MacDermot

Directed by Jeffrey Bleam

Co-presented with the Dept. of Music

Nearly half a century ago, Hair shocked the nation by putting sex, drugs, rock music, and political protest on the Broadway stage. Part ritual, part concert; this "American Tribal Love-Rock Musical" was an historical watershed and remains both a testament to the power of youth and a reminder of the cultural work that is still to be done.
