Upcoming Theatre Performances

avenue_q_thumb.jpg"OPERATION PARACUTE: Drop Zone Series"

Operation Parachute is an ensemble project exploring issues connected with the costs of wars and presenting live events concerned particularly with issues of veterans and their families, and the wider ramifications to our communities and society.

The plays will consist of:

"JOHNNY GOT HIS GUN" by Bradley Rand Smith, adapted from the novel by Dalton Trumbo: a multi-voice version of the highly acclaimed play about severely injured World War I American soldier Joe Bonham and his struggles to understand and adjust to his new body and situation.

"LZ" by David Earl Jones: Viet-Nam Veteran Jim Plank and his wife Kathy come to grips with obstacles, hard memories, and undiagnosed PTSD as they seek to build a new, post-war life together.

"PAX AMERICANA" by Ryan Kelly: Sargent Steve Obler's Charlie Squad gets stranded in a small Iraqi village and is forced to make some of the hardest choices soldiers in wartime face.
