The 13 Clocks – A Musical Tale
Book by Colin Borden, Music and Lyrics by John Rea
Based upon the book by James Thurber
Directed by Colin A Borden
Our 2020 Fall virtual musical show is inspired by James Thurber’s book, The 13 Clocks. It follows a down on his luck musician who gets swept up in an adventure to try and help a kidnapped princess who’s protected by a cruel and lethal Duke who wants to marry her himself. It’s filled with colorful characters including a scatterbrained tinker, a broken fairy, a cursed woman who cries jewels, a nasty henchman, a spy, ghosts, two hucksters, and a giant, eight-eyed monster called the Todal.
The edited production will air on September 11, 2021 at 7pm.
The Tragedy of Julius Caesar: The Brutus Files
By William Shakespeare
Adapted by Emma Ditnes, Liz Fredette, and Sophie Simons
with Elena Eisenstadt
Directed by Liz Fredette
Beatrice (aka Bea), a senior at the prestigious Birnam University, is given an assignment to adapt a play by Shakespeare and set it in a community to which she belongs. She chooses her secret society Verbis et Decessus, casually called Verse & Dagger by its members, where she translates the battle for leader of Rome into a power struggle amongst the eldest society members that goes horribly wrong.
Join us as we see Shakespeare’s original tale unfold in Bea’s imagination as she completes her final project.
