Tartuffe
by Molière

Fast-paced, preposterous, and incomparably witty, this ironic comedy is a satire for the ages.  Revolving around the actions of a family as they attempt to reclaim their father who has fallen under the pious spell of a self-proclaimed religious prophet, Tartuffe, spirals into hilarity as the characters bumble towards a surprise ending.

String
A New Musical
Music and Lyrics by Adam Gwon
Book by Sarah Hammond

A workaholic Greek god gets tangled up with a security guard in the basement of the tallest building in the world.  One mistake leads to another - a lost pair of scissors, a kiss, a stolen string - and soon Atropos is breaking her own rules to offer "forever" to an ordinary man. Can the fabric of the universe stand a flaw?  This original musical about The Three Fates in the modern city was developed, in part, through the Millikin University New Musicals Workshop.

Puccini One Acts
Suor Angelica & Gianni Schicchi

Family matters dominate Pucchini's popular one-act operas. Suor Angelica is the tragic story of a young woman forced by an uncaring family to abandon her illegitimate child, and seek refuge in a convent.  In the comic romp, Gianni Schicchi, the wily title character conspires to secure a handsome dowry for his lovely daughter by aiding the family of the recently deceased Buoso Donati in falsifying his will, which originally had left them nothing.
