A nursing home in northern Idaho is shutting down, making the futures of the longtime employees and three remaining patients uncertain. Even worse, Gerald, a 91-year-old patient suffering from Alzheimer's, has wandered off. The search for Gerald takes place in the midst of a record-breaking blizzard, but that's not the only crisis the staff is dealing with. This new work by award-winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter (The Whale, A Bright New Boise) is an emotional and funny look at life with plenty of unexpected twists. Learn More

A carnival midway of magic, mischief and theatrical thrills! Amanda Dehnert, celebrated throughout the American theatre for re-imagining classics, has added a multitude of visual delights and fantastical illusions to the original charm and beautiful ballads (like the haunting “Try to Remember”) of The Fantasticks_. When two scheming fathers conspire with the mysterious El Gallo to keep their daughter and son apart (to be sure they’ll fall in love!) the dewy-eyed lovers venture into the real world. But as fantasy turns to reality, El Gallo is there to remind them that “without the hurt, the heart is hollow” in one of the most popular musicals of all time, which the _Washington Post calls, “Fresh and alive again.”
