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

A lovely evening in a beautiful outdoor setting surrounded by trees. The actors were engaging and talented, and understood the Shakespearean language well enough to be able to pull the audience into the play with humor and fantasy. A wonderful way to enjoy a Shakespeare comedy on a beautiful Midsummer eve. Congrats to the director, the cast, and Alchemy theatre on a successful first production. Looking forward to seeing more from this new group!
Quotes & Highlights
- “The accent is on comedy in Jesse Runde’s production, highlighted by a madcap choreography that makes clear the inmates have taken over the asylum.” —examiner.com
A perennial audience favorite, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of the Bard’s most celebrated and fantastical comedies, in which a father’s stubbornness sends a foursome of confused young lovers — Hermia (Chelsea Harvey), Lysander (Jeff Lowe), Helena (Lila Bassior) and Demetrius (Daniel Conder) — to flee into the forest, where fairies lie in wait. Unbeknownst to them, the fairy king and queen (Don Formaneck, Tiffany Berg) are there engaged in a battle royale. Their quarrel temporarily throws things out of joint not only for the lovers, but also for a band of roguish actors who gather for a rehearsal.
