“Is this weird?  This is weird, isn’t it.”

Award-winning singer-songwriter Jill Sobule—whose 1990s hits include “Supermodel” and the original “I Kissed a Girl”—takes audiences on a Rock ’n ’Roll odyssey through her life starting with the trauma that is middle school. A raucous celebration of coming of age and coming out, this one of a kind musical event celebrates the power of owning one’s voice at any and every age.

I Get Restless by Caroline V. McGraw

Director: Kate Sullivan

Dramaturg: TBD

Hazel just landed a job at a top law firm, bought a condo and married Mitch, who adores her. Then an accident on her honeymoon leaves her unable to remember anything about the past six years. Adrift in unanswered questions, Hazel must find who she is without knowing who she was. And what about a husband who’s now a stranger? An eerily captivating drama about the mysteries of second chances by an up-and-coming new playwright.

South Coast Repertory

Director: Chip Walton

Dramaturg: TBD

Refuge follows a young Honduran girl on her difficult journey from Central America through Mexico and into South Texas, a Rancher who finds her passed out on his land, and a female Latina border patrol agent who is trying to discover what is lost in the desert. And also, the animals who are just trying to survive – as everything is illegal in the desert. Through a cross-cultural exploration involving puppetry, original music, and bilingual storytelling, the fabric and landscape of South Texas are theatrically brought to life in this intimate and visual story. Refuge is an investigation of America – who we are and who we say we are. And an examination of the desert and the bodies that line the way to freedom, as the desert doesn’t discriminate between young or old, human or animal, citizen or undocumented.
