Shakespeare meets steampunk as Magenta Theater Company sets Romeo & Juliet in a world inspired by Victorian technology. Gears grind and stars cross in this classic tragedy of two young lovers separated by a bitter feud between their families. When an intricate plan to unite the two goes disastrously awry, the results are as memorable as they are deeply moving. Extravagantly ornamented but precisely engineered, Shakespeare's language is the perfect complement to steampunk's richly visual style in this adaptation from director David Roberts. Learn More

Life With Father
By Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse
Directed by Jaynie Roberts
This delightful comedy set in the late 1800s centers around the unfortunate discovery that “Father” (Clarence Day, Sr.) has not been baptized and is therefore doomed. Father’s bubbly wife, Vinnie, and their four red-headed sons plot and scheme to get Father baptized and in the process restore the legitimacy of the marriage and all four births! A constant stream of maids and out-of-town visitors add to the hilarity, while in the background, the eldest son discovers the unexpected charm of females.
