This performance is patterned after the Lux Radio Theatre program which ran for years through the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Lux Radio Theatre was indisputably the biggest, most important, most expensive drama anthology program on radio. It ran from October 14, 1934 until June 7, 1955, then continued on television as Lux Video Theatre until 1957. In all, some 926 one-hour episodes were broadcast, providing a record of the most important entertainment events in American theatre and, later, film. This production of ‘War of the Worlds’ features local actors and involves the use of live and recorded sound effects.

This one-person show is based on the life of acclaimed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and her relationship with chronic pain as the harbinger of art, beauty and life. Frida: Unmasked candidly explores Kahlo’s multi-cultural identities and her complicated yet undeniable bond to her husband famed muralist Diego Rivera. All are investigated through the lens of Kahlo’s words, life, and above all her life-long struggle with pain – both real and imagined. This piece is an homage to Frida Kahlo revealing the most deeply rooted impulses and inspirations of a profoundly indefinite icon.

Peter and the Starcatcher
This was the first production to open the NEW Conrad N. Hilton Theatre at the Esther B. O’Keeffe Center for Creative Education. Board Members and Executive Staff of the Esther B. O’Keeffe Center for Creative Education feel that Peter and the Starcatcher and its production values and message are a perfect fit for the Center. Esther B. O’Keeffe Center for Creative Education Supports the mission of Entr’Acte Theatrix and Theatre of Collaborative Arts in giving performance and tech experience to young theatre artists. This is a production of Entr’Acte Theatrix in association with Theatre of Collaborative Arts.
Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair… and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.
