The classic computer game The Oregon Trail gets a delightfully faithful stage adaptation -- bandits, dysentery and all. Known for their witty wizardly mash-up A Very Potter Musical, StarKid Productions' latest musical comedy The Trail To Oregon! follows a dysfunctional pioneer family as they fight their way cross-country by covered wagon, hunting, fording rivers and battling snakes, measles, typhoid and other dangers every step of the way. While those who grew up playing the The Oregon Trail game will delight in seeing its unintentionally hilarious grim scenarios unfold onstage, everyone at this show will revel in StarKid's side-splitting show tunes and razor-sharp dialogue.

Caffeine Theatre at Stage 773 presents
a play by Caridad Svich
Directed by Joanie Schultz
Spinning madly off of the Greek myth of Medea, Wreckage begins when two boys wash up on shore, not knowing who or where they are, only that they have no choice but to keep moving in a strange world that may or may not be the afterlife. As they wander through this new landscape they soon learn the value of their youth and beauty, as well as the inevitability of pain and loss. Gender roles and parental roles alike lose their accepted meanings, and we begin to understand how fragile identity really is.
Cast: Dana Black, Tim Martin, Ian Daniel McLaren, Sean Thomas, Jeremy van Meter
