“Frankenstein: Man, Monster, Myth (and Mary) ” Compiled, Adapted, and Directed by Dan Heaton
Thursday, September 26, 8 PMFriday, September 27, 8 PMSaturday, September 28, 8 PMSunday, September 29, 2 PM matinee
A little over 200 years ago, a young Mary Godwin, bored
during a rainy summer in Geneva, created what has become perhaps the most
iconic horror creation in literature—Frankenstein’s monster. Since then, the
creature has expanded into many aspects of popular culture—film, cartoons,
graphic novels, games, costumes, parodies. Like the monster, our show is an
amalgamation of parts—fictional and non-fictional—that explore the impact
Frankenstein continues to have on the world.

Book by Catherine JohnsonOriginally conceived by Judy CraymerDirected by Dan Heaton and Bill KennedyThursday, February 13, 8 PMFriday, February 14, 8 PMSaturday, February 15, 8 PMSunday, February 16, 2 PM matinee
Once upon a time, there was a little juke-box musical...oh, who are we kidding? Before the movie (and the sequel), there was the stage show. And here it is. Sophie is getting married on the lovely Greek island where she lives with her mother, Donna. The identity of Sophie's father is unknown, so she invites the three most likely candidates to the wedding. Add in Donna's best friends/former back-up singers and blend with a generous helping of ABBA songs. Just try not to sing along. We dare you. And it's Valentine's weekend. C'mon.
"The Tempest”a comedy by William ShakespeareDirected by Dan Heaton and Bill Kennedy
Thursday, March 26, 8 PMFriday, March 27, 8 PMSaturday, March 28, 8 PMSunday, March 29, 2 PM matinee
Our final show of this season combines aspects of each of the three prior shows. Yes, this our second production of Spring semester to feature an island setting. There is a monster, treachery, and young love. And there is even an element of mystery. Or, as Shakespeare wrote, "Such stuff as dreams are made on." Come dream with us.
Since 1995, the Fat Tuesday Debutantes have been entertaining audiences all over campus We play a variety of improvisation games such as those seen on “Whose Line is it anyway?” and “Wild N Out.” We usually practice for an hour each week, Tuesdays at 5 pm in SPH 127.
