Schulz’s Peanuts characters in 1965, this faithful stage adaptation features Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the gang as they grapple with the meaning of Christmas.

As It Is In Heaven

By Arlene Hutton
A Shaker community becomes complicated when a newcomer claims visions of angels
Directed by Kimberly Borst
Performed in the Black Box Theatre – General Admission Seating $15

The utopian atmosphere of a Shaker community becomes complicated when a newcomer claims visions of angels. The Sisters suspect her to be a "winter Shaker;" one who suddenly “converts” when life gets too hard on the farm. Is this a resurgence of a spiritual Shaker celebration or something manufactured so that she can stay? Why is the newcomer privileged to see these visions yet the most devout Eldress is not? Soon other young women see angels too – or do they just long to appear part of a divine cluster amongst the faithful?

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

By Dale Wasserman
Based on the novel by Ken Kesey
Directed by Nelson Sheeley
Performed in Blair Hall Theatre – Reserved seating $18/$15

A charming rogue contrives to serve a short sentence in a mental institution rather than in a prison. Quickly, he takes over the ward and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do; helping fellow patients recover or at least improve their condition through unorthodox antics. He clashes with the head nurse, who resents his successes and retaliates by abusing her authority.
