The Odyssey 

The Studio Presentation Series initiated in the fall of 2009 has succeeded in engaging both patrons and artists.  Targeted for specific-aged audiences rather than the wide-reaching family fare of the Main Stage, the series provides community artists with a unique opportunity to participate in the creative process of “trying out” new, more experimental works under the direction of emerging professional artists. This program allows our company to both cultivate new talent and challenge audiences.

Our 2017 Studio Series Season:

Fantastic Mr. Fox

January 26-29, 2017

Thursday & Friday at 7:30PM, Saturday and Sunday at 4:00PM

Based on the book by Roald Dahl. Dramatized by Sally Reid.

“Boggis and Bunce and Bean/One fat, one short, one lean/These horrible crooks/So different in looks/Were nonetheless equally mean.” And so begins another enchanting Roald Dahl tale concerning the extraordinary adventures of three nasty farmers, two curious creatures, a family of foxes, and our hero—a most fantastic fellow! Your audience will be fascinated as they watch Boggis, the (enormously fat!) chicken farmer; Bunce, the (pot-bellied dwarf) duck-and-goose farmer; and Bean the (thin) turkey-and-apple farmer, attempt to foil the efforts of Mr. Fox and his friends—the Badgers, the Moles, the Rabbits and the Weasels. And then, of course, they’ll be held in suspense as the animals unwittingly trap themselves in Bean’s Secret Cider Cellar—much to the displeasure of Rat (a rude creature) and all appear doomed. In the end, they’ll cheer as Mr. Fox provides a glorious feast for each and every one—and gives rise to Mrs. Fox’s proclamation that “My husband is one fantastic fox!”
