August 17-27 • Pulitzer Prize winner Martyna Majok brings us the powerful story of two
young DREAMers who fight to establish a place for themselves in America, the only country
they know as home. Poignant, timely, and highly theatrical, Sanctuary City illuminates the
triumphs and challenges these lifelong friends face, and how much they are willing to risk for
each other when they have everything to lose.

Which Way to the Stage by Ana Nogueira, Directed by Carmen Crussard  
January 18 – Feb 3 

A playful yet profound comedy about friendship, ambition, and what happens when dreams
fall just out of reach.   

Broadway superfans Jeff and Judy eagerly await their idol Idina Menzel after her performance
in If/Then at the stage door every night. But when a sexy stranger enters the scene and upends
their decades-long friendship, the musical theater aficionados have to go off book to rewrite
their own finale.

The Women Who Mapped the Stars by Joyce Van Dyke  
February 8-18 
Five women astronomers working together at the Harvard Observatory help to shape the
development of astrophysics. Cecilia Payne, the central character, makes the revolutionary
discovery while still a graduate student that the stars are made of Hydrogen. In this time-
bending, non-linear play, we experience the rivalries and friendships of five very different
women as they build on each other’s work, feed each other’s dreams, exult in the thrill of
discovery, struggle for recognition, and open the doors for those who come after them.   


This event is generously sponsored by Janet & Bruce Bunch.
