"Women without Skin" .Performed and Directed by Paula Barrett and Natalie Pertz. "There are probably little pieces of us littered everywhere. The insides of our clothes are lined with skin, our shoes are full of skin. When you touch someone you're just exchanging skin." To what length will we go to cover up our greatest insecurities? In pampering for an ominous occasion, a mother and daughter will scrub themselves bare only to conceal it all again. Performing Monday March 10 and Tuesday March 11 at 8pm in the Schuster Theatre Green Room (located on the 1st Floor of Scottino Hall).
"Inside the Actor's Studio: Transitions and Cultural Stereotypes of post 9-11 America".

"Scooter Thomas Makes it to the Top of the World" by Peter Parnell. Directed by Joshua Mizikowski. Featuring Ethan Kelley and Ted Hallowell. A familiar tale to many of us. As we journey with two young men over the years and see the joy of new friendships and the pain of drifting apart to one final tragic loss.

"The Good Doctor" by Neil Simon. Directed by Paula Barrett. Featuring Rev. Shawn Clerkin, Nicole Dohoda, Nicholas Emmanuele, Jax Kubiak, and Jared Lossie. American
playwright and screenwriter Neil Simon, widely regarded as one of the most
successful, prolific and performed playwrights in the world, molds seven of
Anton Chekhov’s short stories into beautifully timed, quite charming theatre
filled with surprise endings, clever twists, and affectionate portraits of
amusing and absurd characters. The “Good
Doctor” is a reference to Anton Chekhov himself who acts as narrator and serves
to connect the various scenes. Performances Saturday March 15 at 8pm and Sunday March 16 at 2pm in the Schuster Theatre (located at 620 Sassafras Street).
"The Termination" by Sam Birnkrantz. Directed by Conor Grey. A dark, moving satire on overpopulation in the year 2000 in which a lonely young woman, fed up with romantic disappointments and overwhelming problems, applies to the government's Suicide Center for 'termination'. Hundreds of forms must be filled out; then there's the termination choice. Should she choose gas or pills or bullets or electrocution? The mirth-ridden interview is interrupted when an employee carries into the room the sole remaining possession of a recent terminee. It is a parakeet in a cage. How a bird rekindles our heroine's interest in life by providing her with something to love is a moving an powerful resolution to this play. Featuring the talents of Khadija Djellouli, Jade Mitchell, Kayla Scully, James McCormick, Katie Hoag, and Conor Grey. Performances are Tuesday March 18 and Wednesday March 19 at 8pm in Waldron 219.
"Love Actually Isn't" by Dan Johnson. Directed by Zach Flock. Produced by Dramashop. This collection of six one-act plays is about love, doubt, closure, an compromise.

"A Trois" by Barry Hall. Directed by Sarah Sgro. Featuring Ethan Kelley, Cristen Manion, and Zak Westfall. A Trois takes a different angle to look into the unique situations that accompany relationships, both between friends and between lovers. Using nonlinear format, the actors tell their stories in a series of short monologues and scenes, flowing seamlessly from one into the next, often without the knowledge of the audience. Oh and they never leave their stools! Performances Thursday March 20 and Friday March 21 at 8pm in the Schuster Theatre (located at 620 Sassafras Street).
"Let's Murder Marsha!" by Monk Ferris. Directed by Larry Lewis. Marsha is a housewife who is hopelessly addicted to murder mystery novels.
