8th Grade Production 

The Chosen

by Lachlan Philpott

From the author's website: 

'For most girls, finding a place within the cliques, the hierarchies, and the gossip of a new school is tough enough. For Freya Star, it’s astronomically more difficult. She’s different; she is convinced she has been marked by something not of this world . . . but when the girls at school start prying into Freya’s life, everything she thinks she knows starts crashing down to Earth." Originally written in collaboration with the students at Brisbane Girls' Grammar School in Australia, this American premiere contains adult language and is recommended for mature Middle School students and up. Tickets are $10.

Blue Stockings

By Jessica Swale

In 1896, a number of young women were allowed to attend Girton College at Cambridge University. Unlike their male counterparts, however, they were not allowed to graduate with diplomas. Educated women were, in fact, scorned and seen as unnatural. Blue Stockings follows the journey of these young women as they fight for equality. Recommended for a Middle School audience and up. Tickets are $10 and will be available online two weeks before the production.
