Flyin' West is Atlanta playwright Pearl Cleage's critically praised true story of four female former slaves who travel from the South to the West after the Civil War in search of a better life. This incredible, lesser-known slice of American history examines this small group of black women who settled the first all-black town of Nicodemus, Kansas, in the late 1800s. Overcoming tremendous odds, they brave the untamed frontier, brutal winters and other challenges to build this town that's a historic national landmark today. Learn More

Some Like It Hot meets Twelfth Night in Ken Ludwig’s delightful madcap comedy,Leading Ladies.
In Leading Ladies, slapstick goofiness and scrambled Shakespeare make for a hilarious romp about mistaken identities, human foibles and loves lost and found. Role reversal gets a new twist and a side of laughs when two down-on-their-luck Shakespearean actors dress as women in a plot to con a dying woman out of her millions. Interweaving inside jokes about the stage, thespians and the Bard himself, Ludwig turns the play within a play model into a farcical statement about art and appearances.
David Engel and John J. Joseph star as Leo and Jack, with Jamison Lingle as Meg; Lyndsi LaRose as Audrey; Katherine McKalip as Florence; Daniel Lench as Duncan; Corey Craig as Butch; and Don Oscar Smith as Doc.
Please note, there is a $10 fee to park at the venue.
