The young nobleman Orlando falls asleep one day only to wake and find himself in the throes of a surprising transformation in this erotic romp through the centuries. Adapted for the stage by MacArthur Fellow Sarah Ruhl, Virginia Woolf's 1928 masterpiece Orlando, based in part on the life of Woolf's lover, Vita Sackville-West, has been described as "the most charming love letter in literature." Ruhl brings her trademark blend of feminism and fantasy to Woolf's gender-bending tale, which follows Orlando's adventures spanning 300 years. Learn More

<p>By William Shakespeare
Directed by Michael Ryan Fernandez</p> <p>Firebelly Productions sees Hamlet through new eyes, new lenses… taking Hamlet down to its core: a bloodthirsty ghost story about revenge and madness. The original text is made accessible to everyone with a production style that highlights the betrayal, paranoia, and vengeance that surrounds the characters. To accent this, Director Fernandez uses live video, on stage, to heighten Hamlet’s paranoia and to fully immerse the audience in this exceptional story and its true-to-life characters. “Madness in great ones must not unwatch'd go.” Who is watching?</p> <p>Featuring: John Bonner, Matthew Friedman, Steven J. Hoochuk, Jon Jon Johnson, Sonia Justl, Sean Kinslow, Charley Mann, Theresee McNichol, Charles St. Charles, Shelby Sours, and Arturo Tolentino.</p>
About the Ticket Supplier: Firebelly ProductionsFrom its inception in May, 2002, Firebelly Productions has focused on the talents of young artists. Artistic director Kathi Gollwitzer has successfully trained actors for stage, auditions, and performance-based productions. Her teaching method, which is based on the method created by Stanislavski, creates confident and honest performances with disciplined actors. They are trained in scene study and monologue work using techniques such as sense memory exercises, improvisation, and action / motivation / object method.
Firebelly was the direct result of a collaboration between Kathi Gollwitzer and producer, Barbara Walthall. The two first joined forces on Postmortem, during Kathi's 6-year tenure at Bishop O'Connell High School in Arlington, Virginia. While there, she challenged her students to rise above the "just another school play" standard to "professional quality productions." Her work on productions like My Fair Lady, West Side Story, An Ideal Husband, and Singin' in the Rain attracted the attention of locals who became loyal followers and resulted in sold out houses. Sharing a commitment to the training of serious students, Kathi and Barbara founded Firebelly as an opportunity for students to work alongside a group of talented, dedicated, and creative individuals. Drawing from a variety of experiences in many areas of theatre, they provide guidance, support, and expertise.
