Nurse Ratched is a character of such exquisite evil that she beat out Michael Corleone, Freddy Krueger, HAL 9000 and the Shark from Jaws in an AFI ranking of "100 Greatest Villains." Despite all her power, she meets her match in Randle P. McMurphy, the free-spirited patient who waltzes into her psych unit and threatens to upend her world in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Watching these two -- the strict authoritarian and the carefree rabble-rouser -- engage in a high-stakes game of control is one the chief pleasures of this Tony-winning stage adaptation of Ken Kesey's legendary novel (which also inspired the legendary, Oscar-winning movie). Stacy Holmes directs this tough, touching and tragic American classic now at the Attic Community Theater. Learn More

We got lost on the way, don't trust directions from Google Maps, it sent us to the wrong city. Once we got there we were pleasantly surprised. Its a small venue but cozy and the actors are close - no microphones. I'd definitely go again, its just what the doctor ordered.
The Taming of the Shrew exploits the battle of the sexes with both "tamer" and "tamed" receiving an education in love and marriage and understanding. Politically incorrect and packed with romantic and farcical comedy, Shrew is a summer salve for life’s trials and tribulations.
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Carl Reggiardo
David Denman (Roy on TV’s "The Office") returns to SOC to play the macho Petruchio and SOC veteran Katie A. Keane returns to play the fiery Kate.
