Marquette Theatre’s 2021-22 Season


TOGETHER AGAIN!


`21-`22 will be a season of upbeat entertainment.  Our season title ‘Together Again’ reflects the many ways that characters are reunited on stage.  It also implies our return to live theatre and being reunited with our audiences in the Helfaer Theatre!


CALIFORNIA SUITE


by Neil Simon


A classic Neil Simon comedy set in the Beverly Hills Hotel.  This full-length farce features four playlets all set in the same suite featuring various middle-aged couples wrestling humorously with a range of issues, from infidelity to the Academy Awards.  A divorced couple must learn to cope for the sake of their daughter and best friends turn to enemies.  Five couples in all are played by four very talented actors.  This production introduces our Second Stage Series, using limited scenery and costumes, placing the focus on the acting.  It will play in rotation with The Taming of the Shrew.


California Suite Performances: Oct. 1, 9, 15 at 7:30 pm; Oct. 2, 10, 16 at 2:30 pm

THE TAMING OF THE SHREW


by William Shakespeare


Shakespeare’s comical battle of the sexes brings Kate and Petruchio head-to-head on the Helfaer stage.  Petruchio has come to Padua to find a wealthy wife.  In finding Kate, the daughter of a local merchant, he discovers more than he bargained for!  Not only is Kate a match for his fiery temper and agile wit, she proves to be his perfect partner.  Comical subplots and sidekicks abound.  The Taming of the Shrew plays in rotation with California Suite in our new acting-focused Second Stage Series.


The Taming of the Shrew Performances: Oct. 2, 8, 16 at 7:30 pm; Oct. 3, 9, 17 at 2:30 pm
