Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in

but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in
his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, with his door locked from the inside.
Isolated and with a killer in their midst, Detective Hercule Poirot must
identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again
Ragtime April 1-2 at 7:30 PM
April 3 at 2:00 PM

in Conjunction with the Community Arts Center

At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing… and anything is possible. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America.

A man with several convictions to his name finds himself in jail once again. Rather than spend his time in jail, he convinces the guards that he's crazy enough to need psychiatric care and is sent to a hospital.

However, Nurse Ratched becomes his personal cross to bear as his resistance to the hospital routine gets on her nerves.

Empowering children with special needs through theater

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

Mark Twain Live October 1 at 7:00 PM

Born in 1835, he “came in with Halley’s Comet” and went out with it 75 years later in 1910. Mark Twain is one of the few icons who’s words have survived and entertained audiences in the 19th, 20th and now the 21st century! Today’s stand-up comics surely owe a debt to the man who first made America laugh:
Mark Twain Live!
