Simpatico, by Sam Shepard, directed by Matthew Greseth - February 21 - March 9, 2014
Carter believes all his mistakes are behind him and thinks he has everything under control. But the past never stays completely buried, and a desperate phone call from an old associate starts to unravel the carefully-woven web of Carter's life. Secrets, betrayals, and hidden identities are revealed, roles are reversed, and old scores are settled. Dangerous people are everywhere in this noir-style drama by one of America's foremost modern playwrights.

The Rest of our 16th Season
Mom! A New Musical, book by Judy Freed, music and additional lyrics by Sari Miller, lyrics by Randi Wolfe, directed by Bradley Donaldson - April 25 - May 11, 2014
Mom! celebrates the twists and turns, delights and dilemmas, rewards and regrets of parenting. From trying to reason with a toddler having a tantrum to panicking at the prospect of a parent-teacher conference; from staving off unwanted child-rearing advice to struggling to accept the choices of grown children; from trying to rekindle marital passion to trying to shield kids from the heartbreak of divorce, this musical celebrates the humor and the terror of parenting.
Twelfth Night, by William Shakespeare, directed by Kathy Welch and Avian Jangula - May 30 - June 14, 2014
The Chameleon Theatre Circle is teaming up with Green T Productions to meld Shakespeare’s irresistible romantic comedy with the visual and movement styles of the Japanese Kabuki tradition! In the kingdom of Illyria, love is turning everyone's life upside down, from the regal Duke and haughty Countess to their most lowly servants. A shipwreck, disguises, intercepted messages, and questionable fashion choices all play a part in the chaos that drives one of the most beloved comedies of all time.
