ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST
By Ken Kesey, Dale Wasserman
Directed by Miguel Reyna
Boisterous, ribald and ultimately shattering, this is the unforgettable story of a mental hospital and its inhabitants. In a world where sanity means conformity and following the rules is the only way to survive, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST is a powerful exploration of both the beauty and the danger of being your own unique self. This Tony-award winning adaption by Dale Wasserman pays homage to the original storytelling of the classic novel by Ken Kesey, while adding a chilling, poignant edge that has captivated and enthralled audiences.
May 20 – June 12, 2022
by Tim Firth
Directed by Hannah Eckstein
When Annie’s husband John dies of cancer, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. With help from other women in their British women’s club, (who are also of a more advanced age) they decide to pose nude and publish a calendar with the photos in order to raise funds. The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The play is based on a true story and is both poignant and filled with sweet, good-natured British comedy that is sure to make you roar with laughter!

THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM
Book & Lyrics by Alfred Uhry
Music by Robert Waldman
Directed by W. Scott Whisler
Set in eighteenth-century Mississippi, The Robber Bridegroom is a Southern fairy tale about a charming gentleman bandit, the rich plantation owner’s daughter he loves, the wicked stepmother who wants her dead, and an evil thief who carries his brother’s talking head around in a trunk. In this backwoods fairy tale of young love and ageless deceit, no one is really who they pretend to be. This unique musical theatre production features Bluegrass music performed on stage by a live band.

NOW AND THEN
by Sean Grennan
Directed by Kathie Kratochvil
ALL PERFORMANCES OF THIS PLAY WILL BE HELD AT THE SANTA CRUZ ACTORS’ THEATRE1001 Center Street, Santa Cruz, CA
What if we had information about what our life was going to look like in 40 years, and found that the simple and seemingly ordinary decisions we make now could have a profound effect on our life’s tapestry? Would we go about things differently? Set in an Irish bar in New York City in 1981, the play explores our notions of love, following your dreams (or not) and the costs of the decisions we make. It is heart-warming romance, drama, and comedy rolled into a compelling story about the interplay of the past and present.
