The Game's Afoot

It is December 1936 and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry.  But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous.  Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit mystery.

SAFE

In 2011, a young gay teen hangs himself–but the events leading to the suicide began decades before, in 1986, when bullies tormented Nancy and her closeted best friend. Twenty-five years later, the cycle continues when Nancy is confronted by another bully–her son.

1940's Radio Show - Christmas on the Home Front

We are very excited to be celebrating our 6th anniversary of our holiday radio play program!

During the dark days of WWII, most Americans sat around the radios in their homes waiting for information from the war front! If you remember listening, and want to recapture those days of your childhood Christmas, or have never heard it, but want to experience the magic of live radio theatre and create new memories for you and your family, attend this production!

This year the SVSU Theatre Department will be focusing on the Christmas Radio Shows during WWII with our original production of "1940’s Radio Show – Christmas on the Home Front!"

This one hour live radio production will relive the hope, the determination and of course the patriotic celebration of the holiday season during the war. Listen to stories, songs and letters from the home front and abroad! As Bob Hope once stated  “For all you men in the armed forces of the United States of America, here is a special Christmas package.”

Come and enjoy the top theatrical performers at SVSU alongside the award winning Cardinal Singers.

Terra Nova

In the winter of 1911-12, 5 Englishmen and 5 Norwegians raced each other to the bottom of the earth.  Only the Norwegians returned.  Terra Nova is the story of Captain Scott’s expedition to the South Pole.  The discovery that Amundsen has preceded him, the bravery and sufferings of his team, the self-sacrifice of Captain Oates and the final tragedy are recounted in a mixture of fantasy and realism which underlines both the human and epic qualities of their adventure.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Here is the spooky classic story by Washington Irving, presented with all the thrills, chills and laughs that keep young audiences on the edge of their seats. The storybook tale revolves around the main characters – the bumbling, awkward schoolteacher, Ichabod Crane, the coquettish Katrina Van Tassel and Ichabod's brutish rival, Brom Bones. There are also six characters who play storytellers, keeping the action and pace moving throughout. As much fun as the play presents, it saves the best for last—the ride of the headless horseman. This adaptation remains dedicated to the spirit of the original work yet expertly involves the audience with lots of suspense and comedy. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is exciting family entertainment any time of the year.
